How much does a voiceover cost?
For broadcast work, there are two main components of the voiceover fee: BSF + Usage
Who is the client?
Where will the voiceover be shown or heard?
Is for broadcast or non-broadcast?
How many times will it be shown or heard?
For how long?
How long is the voiceover licenced for?
All voiceovers recorded for broadcast or streaming are licenced for 12 months from date of delivery.
How are your voiceovers delivered?
Unless a client requests otherwise, all audio delivered securely via Email, Dropbox or Google Drive in uncompressed WAV format at 48kHz - for which there is no charge.
Are there voiceovers you won't do?
While every voiceover job is undertaken at the discretion of the artist, there have been rare instances where I have declined a voiceover job due to contractual or ethical reasons.
Can you record at my recording studio?
I am happy to travel to client/third-party recording studios, but a deposit of 25% of the agreed fee must be paid before the booking is confirmed.
Are voiceover fees negotiable?
Yes, but mostly for small and medium non-broadcast projects.
How quickly can you record my script?
During my availability hours (at the bottom of the homepage), I am able to record, master and deliver audio to you within 1 hour.
What are your payment terms?
All invoices must be paid within 30 days unless a longer invoicing period is agreed in writing.
Can I listen-in and direct the voiceover session?
Yes. Clients are welcome to direct voiceover sessions using ipDTL, Skype, Facebook Messenger or Zoom.
Can you help write or edit my script?
Yes, I'm happy to help write and/or edit your script.
Do you have ISDN?
No. ISDN is outdated technology which is no longer supplied by BT and its ISDN network is being switched off in 2025.
Do you record at weekends?
Yes, but please book at least 24 hours in advance. However, if you require a voiceover urgently, I will do my best to help.
Can you also edit the voiceover audio?
Unless the client specifies, all voiceover audio I record receives basic editing treatment such as topping and tailing and mastering.
If you require audio editing beyond the basics, I am happy to do so for a small additional fee. For example, some clients require voiceover audio to be separated into multiple audio files and formats, de-breathed and mastered for immediate broadcast.
Audio is delivered in WAV format at 48kHz / 24-bit unless otherwise specified.
You are also welcome to listen-in and direct the session remotely over ipDTL, Skype, Facebook Messenger or Zoom.
