The description for “Creature Vocal Design” is:
“Many characters in today’s films, shows and games are wholly unique in their visual design, and need to sound distinct from creatures in the real world around us. Beasts and monsters from decades past could be covered by a handful of custom sounds, but what about characters who need vocal treatment for an entire script?
Let’s learn about how these unique voices are brought to life by some of the best sound designers in the games industry.”
