Montreal is the second largest primarily French-speaking city in the world, and so it stands to reason that it has a large talent pool of French actors and vast experience in French localization. But as a truly bilingual city, Montreal also has a perfect understanding of English speaking culture and the games industry. All of which makes Montreal the ideal location to record an International French voice over that keeps the spirit of the original game intact.
The 3 top reasons to record French in Montreal
1- Montreal is the largest French as a first language city in the Americas, and as such it is home to thousands of experienced video game performers. This includes actors, directors, and translators who can all understand and recreate the subtleties of the original English version of the game.
2- Montreal is steeped in game culture and the industry has flourished here. The city boasts some of the best recording studios and engineers in North America having won numerous plaudits for the quality of their work.
3- Excellent Value: Montreal provides one of the most competitive business environments in North America and allows you to take advantage of a favourable exchange rate.
Game On is awesome! We used them for casting, voice directing, and VO recording. I wouldn’t hesitate for a second to use them again. There have been so many times when I was at the session thinking “we should do a different take with a little more …” Then suddenly and without prompting voice director would chime in and direct the talent in a way exactly as I was thinking.Greg Shaw Microsoft Studios
