If you have any queries about the voiceover process, hopefully this page will help, but if not do drop me an email with the details of your project and I will do my best to answer them.
By booking me to voice your project you are also booking my broadcast quality recording studio. I record your script, with the option for you to listen in and direct during the recording session, and then provide you with the sound files in whichever format you need.
I am also always happy to pop into a central London recording studio if you would prefer.
That is actually a difficult question to answer – it is totally dependent on what the project is, what genre it is, and where it is going to be heard/seen (usually referred to as usage).
I follow Equity rate cards where they exist – and like to think I am otherwise competitive with my pricing. I charge a basic studio fee (or BSF) which is my minimum charge for any session or job – that allows for an hour’s recording session during which I should be able to produce approximately 20 minutes or so of finished audio. Usage is then always applicable on top for TV, Radio and online advertising, depending on the size & length of the campaign.
I have a different minimum pricing structure for IVR (charged per prompt) & elearning work (charged per word).
Contact me with all the details of your project and I will be very happy to quote for you.
You can indeed – in fact I recommend this wherever possible. You can listen in via telephone or video conferencing (Zoom, Teams, Google Meet, Skype etc) or one of the audio industry standard ways of connecting – Source Connect, ipDTL, Cleanfeed, Session Link Pro, etc and talk to me as I record your project.
Alternatively I can self-direct the recording session and send you your sound files afterwards, either raw or edited, as you prefer.
I am a full-time voiceover so I usually turn around new projects within 24 hours or faster, depending on existing workload and of course the size of the project! I will always give you an ETA when you book, and will work to your deadlines whenever practically possible.
I am happy to suggest alterations to scripts – especially if they were originally in another language. I also offer a fuller script editing service – please contact me for a quote.
I am always happy to record a brief demo to help with any final decisions on casting, just drop me an email.
The broadcast-quality studio runs Adobe Audition, which enables me to add any video to my recording timeline and sync my audio – which can then be provided as a raw audio track or edited back in the video, whichever you require.
By bank transfer, credit card, Wise or Paypal. We can discuss how you would prefer to settle your invoice as part of the quoting process. My usual terms are 30 days from invoice, although I do sometimes ask new clients for a full or partial up front payment.
I record in high quality wav, but can provide files in practically any format you need – high quality mp3, low quality mp3, AIFF, etc. Just ask!
If the session is not via Source Connect, AudioTX or ipDTL then I can either upload your files to your own FTP server or send them via We Transfer or any other FTP system that will work with your firewall.
For small mp3 files I can email them direct if that is quicker, and if your mail server will accept them.
I do. Almost all of my work is covered by my standard Equity approved contract, including an AI waiver – visit my Ts&Cs page for full details.
Funnily enough I do! I have worked closely with Piers Gibbon, a smooth-tongued, chocolatey-voiced BBC British charmer of a male voiceover as my “audio husband” for a number of years. So if you need a male voice, or both male and female voices for your project, then get in touch!
I am also always happy to recommend other voices (male or female, in English or other languages) if I am not the perfect fit for your project.
