Voice-over rates are based on a number of variables: The medium (radio, television, internet), The market (local, national, international), the length, The nature Dryread (my voice only)or will you add music.
The more specific you are about what you want, the Easier it is to give you an informed quote and the read you need. Some fundamental factors considered when deliborating cost are listed below.
Studio Time is a factor when it comes to rates, because quite simply put "time is money".
Mixing is an art. Getting the sound of the vocals along with music or sound fx (just right) for submission to the client takes experience and a true understanding of the art.
Mastering like mixing is essential to making a client a true believer in the excellence of our brand of work. Good quality is everything!
Production is my favorite part of the process. Working with our clients during a session or just putting together the product based on the script alone is great! Allowing me to creatively produce the product you need.
