This is an audio excerpt from an interview with voiceover artist and actor Nolan North, featured in Kill Screen Issue 5: Sound.
I caught North on Skype in Creative Director Amy Hennig’s office at Naughty Dog (he was there working on his book, Drake’s Journal, about the making of Uncharted 3.) I might have known, of course, that to describe the process of finding and finessing voices, he might have to demonstrate them. And you might have to hear them in all their glory, to fully appreciate his answer. Behold! Er—behear! An artist puts on pounds and takes years off his education.
