Closed Borders Opened Doors: How a Global Pandemic Affects Malaysian Voice Actors by Azman Zulkiply


Professional Voice Actor and Voice Director Mr. Azman Zulkiply was invited by the School of Media & Communication (SOMAC) to share his experiences on "Closed Borders Opened Doors: How a Global Pandemic Affects Malaysian Voice Actors" with the students of Creative Design for Advertising and Professional Media Workshop (Advertising).


Mr. Azman has worked on commercials for brands such as Audi, Mercedes, Huawei, Adidas, Spotify and Astro. He has also worked on the animation projects such as Ejen Ali & Boboiboy as well as the movie and video games like No Straight Roads.


He shared how he got into the voice acting and how the industry shifted to accept more remote work, thus opening up possibilities for projects outside of the Malaysia.


He also talked about how Malaysian Voice Actors turned to their own little projects during the pandemic as a way to give back to the community and keep themselves occupied. A total of 110 participants from within and outside of Taylor’s University attended the webinar.
