For this meetup we dive into the world of voice over with Sam Kurnit. Sam demystifies exactly how the voice over process works and answers a variety of questions. Questions like “Where do I find voice talent?” and “What should I look for in a voice actor?” and “Why should I even use voice actors?”

Sam is a professional actor and voice actor originally from New York. You can hear him in Wadjet Eye Games Technobabylon (and their upcoming game Shardlight) and Kreative Spills Norse Noir as well as a variety of commercials and silly internet videos.
