Speaker Bio
Randall’s journey into voice casting and directing was an unusual one. A musician from the age of five and a touring songwriter/performer for 15 years, he stopped touring to co-found InternetSound (later HamsterBall) in 1995. Quite by accident, Randall found he had a knack for directing talent, and soon voice-over became a bigger and bigger part of HamsterBall’s mix.
The work that jazzes him the most are the story-driven narratives where the actors and I get to explore and create deep characters and complex worlds.
Randall’s recent casting and directing credits include Chivalry 2, The Walking Dead: Destinies, Lord of the Rings Online,, World of Tanks, Cosmonious High, Dungeons & Dragons Online, Vacation Simulator, and GI Joe: Operation Blackout. Legacy titles include World of Warcraft, Deer Hunter, Hearthstone, Transformers, Barbie, Disney Princess, and Dora the Explorer.
Randall co-hosts the Let’s Talk Voiceover podcast with director and actor Gillian Brashear. He still composes music, performs the occasional live gig, and thinks dogs make the best people.
