Robin Atkin Downes

Granted this video is pretty old as it’s from the making of Gears of War 2 but I hadn’t seen it before and it popped up on one of my streams this morning and I found it extremely impressive.

The mans name is Robin Atkin Downes and what this man can do with his voice is absolutely amazing.

I just always presumed the locust voices were digitised and edited with some fancy software but it looks like this guy can just make himself sound like beasts from below the earth at a whim.
