About this workshop:

Plunge into the fascinating world of creature vocalizations and some of the voice techniques behind monster and creature sounds in video games. Most categories of creatures and monsters have a specific vocal archetype and a voice technique (vocal effect or rough vocal effect) related to it. You will learn about vocal archetypes, different vocal effects and their mechanisms, how to prepare a creature voice reel, an audition or a recording session for these specific sounds and more. In the last part of the workshop, you will get to test your creature voice acting skills with different scripts and sound scenarios.

About your instructor:

Metal vocalist since 1991 (Necrotic Mutation) and throat singer (Tibetan, Mongolia and Inuit throat-singing) since 1996, Sébastien Croteau masters an impressive number of extreme vocal techniques. He began teaching metal voices and throat-singing 15 years ago. Since then, he has trained hundreds of metal vocalists and voice talents around the world and he is a renowned expert in vocal distortion, extreme sounds and creature voice design.

It is thanks to these techniques that he began to work for video games companies in 2005. Since then, he has specialised in vocal stunt work and sound creation of the voices of monsters and creatures. He has worked on more than thirty video games (including Baldur’s Gate 3, Warhammer: Realm of Ruins, Gotham Knights, Meet your Maker, Marvel's Guardians of the Galaxy, Dead by Daylight, Dungeons and Dragons: Dark Alliance, Shadow of the Tomb Raider, Far Cry 5, Rainbow Six Siege: Outbreak, Prince of Persia – The Forgotten Sands and Assassin's Creed 2) and has lent his voice to more than 300 characters.

For the past few years, he has been a casting director and a voice director for various projects. He also teaches voice acting at INIS (National Institute of Sound and Image) in Montreal. In 2018, he created a company called The Monster Factory, a talent agency that specializes in extreme sounds, vocal stunts and creature/monster voices.


Class is limited to 12 students. 18 and over. Cameras are mandatory for class intro.
