Video Games & Animation

As well as being a voice over artist/voice actor, I’m also a classically trained actor with a background in improvisation, comedy, screen-acting and Shakespeare and I bring this experience to my game and animation roles. Click here for videos of my acting roles. I like to bring realism and humanity to my characters- even when they’re huge caricatures I want them to have a grain of truth! I love what I do, and while I take a disciplined approach to my vocal skills, I always try to bring a sense of playfulness and fun to the studio- sometimes the ad-libs and outtakes are my best work!

Video Games

I’m a fan of games and regularly play point-and-click adventures in my spare time. I grew up playing Monkey Island, Day of the Tentacle and Grim Fandango and fell in love with the vocal performances in each them- it’s a big part of why I’m a voice actor now. I’m always amazed at the creative opportunities that games hold for players and for voices: I have been elderly ladies, children, dragons, monsters, a zoo full of animals, aliens and very occasionally even myself. Here’s a selection of games I’ve worked on: they range from quirky Indies to BAFTA nominated games….

Bertram Fiddle

A terribly gruesome tale in the finest tradition of point and click adventure games!

I absolutely loved playing Episode 1 of Bertram Fiddle, so was delighted to be asked to play 7 characters in Episode 2 Bertram Fiddle: A Bleaker Predicklement. I play a variety of Victorian comic characters, including cockney street vendors, an aristocrat locked in an attic, a flirtatious baker and a sinister old lady.

“Sally was great to work with, responding brilliantly to direction. She provided us with several very strong and unique characters. Her consistency and ability to stay in character is also something which impressed me – especially as the voices I required were very exaggerated mad old crones.”  Seb Burnett, Writer/Designer of Bertram Fiddle, Rumpus Animation

It was a very creative day of recording at Red Panda in Bristol with Matthew Walker and I’m looking forward to hearing which of my ad-libs made it into the game!

Released on Steam at the end of July 2017

 

     

Drone Swarm

Drone Swarm is a story-driven SciFi RTS game for PC developed by StillAlive studios.

I play Kaylee (with the green hair on the left of the cutscenes), head of the Military in the Drone Swarm universe. I was hired specifically for my authentic British sarcasm and had a fantastic time arguing with Erika Sanderson. We’d worked together on a film and she recommended me to Swiss company Still Alive.

Written by Aaron de Orive, it’s a game driven by the conflict between military and religious factions- with two leading women and a predominantly female cast. 

“It’s been a great experience working with Sally over a remote Skype video call and working through the script and it shows: there’s nothing to be afraid of if one doesn’t have a huge studio. We’re super happy with Sally’s performance of a sarcastic military officer, it has been great fun to working with her, and it shows in the final recordings we’ve received.”  Chris Polus, Sound Designer Chromonaut/Still Alive

     

 

 

Project Aftermath

Project Aftermath is an Arcade RTS game where you command up to four squads of soldiers in exciting battles in a retro-futuristic world.

I play your guide in the retro-futuristic battle game, Theora- she’s sardonic and isn’t shy about telling you where you went wrong. 

Project Aftermath is an incredible achievement for Games Faction‘s team of two people, and I was so pleased to be part of its success- it’s also littered with British references like the New Order and even a Captain Manwaring! Just… don’t panic.

It was the only non-US game to win a coveted spot on the PAX 10 and won the Best Indie Title from Game Focus. The reviews for the voices were fantastic, too:

“Sound/Music: 10/10
The voice acting for this game is jaw-dropping. I simply could not believe the quality I was hearing. In fact after watching the first comic-strip story sequence and then hearing the voice work (and the sheer amount of voice work) I immediately went online to double check the size of the development team. The music, sound fx, and voice work is absolutely top-notch and is better than some fully priced console games out there.” The Indie Game Magazine

     

 

the voice acting is superb Just Press Play

“The voice-acting is also spot on, with every character featuring a considerably lengthy amount of dialogue. At times the voice acting is so professional, that you forget that the game was made by such a small team of people.” Middle East Gamers

the voice over work is some of the best we have heard in an indie title ” Game Focus

Altea Aerospace

The XR5 Vanguard, DeltaGlider-XR1, and XR2 Ravenstar are cutting-edge, high-performance spacecraft for the Orbiter Space Flight Simulator

I’m the voice of the XR1-5 Fleet of space craft in this Oribiter flight-sim

The vocal reference was Hal from 2001: A Space Odyssey and I really enjoyed delivering news such as “Oxygen levels falling” in a flat yet knowing voice.

“Sally did a great job on the voiceovers for my new ship. She is easy to work with and her work is top-notch!”
 Douglas Beachy, Altea Aerospace

Buzz!:The Schools Quiz

An educational game based on Relentless‘s popular Buzz series

I recorded over 5000 questions for this game and as a fan of trivia I loved every second! Aimed at Key Stage 2 (7-11 year olds) and and supported by the Department for Education and Schools, this game romps through History, English Language and Literature, Geography, Maths, French, Spanish and Science in a fast-paced multiple choice game.

Starring Jason Donovan as the eponymous Buzz the game was a hit with schoolchildren. The Sunday Times gave it 5 stars, The Guardian 4/5 and the game was nominated for a BAFTA in the Primary Learning category!

Animation

Hip Hip & Hurra

 

A weasel and a hippo detective team solve mysteries and teach children science!

I was cast as twelve of the animal characters in this wonderful educational animation. I played Missy, the trainee detective Ant who gets to fly on a leaf, a gorilla baby, a Northern Swallow who migrates south and a parrot, who explains how the planets rotate from her garden swing.

Reel of voices coming soon!

   

Bupi Bupi

Bupi is an alien who comes to Earth to show children that, no matter what our differences, we can all get along!

I played several of the children, in the first clip I play the little blonde girl, Conchin.

In the second clip I play Elena, who takes an eye test, and later on I also play two of her friends: the boy in the wheelchair (Alonso) and the footballer- I still get a kick out of listening to me chatting with myself as different characters!
