What are your voice over rates?

Wow, you don’t mess around!

The answer is…it depends.

Ask (click) for a quote here. It takes only about 2 minutes.

We'll provide you with a written estimate

Every project, even if it is the same category, is different. For example…someone may want a fully produced spot with lots of music and sound effects….someone else may want a dry read…someone else may want a dry read but need a character voice. Then there is contract length, market size…so much stuff that it is simply more effective for us to quote each job individually to give you an accurate cost.

Do clients write the scripts/copy or do you?

We can do it either way.

Obviously, there is a script writing fee involved if we write it but if we just give you some suggestions on copy you’ve written, our opinions are free (we also know how to just keep our opinions to ourselves and simply read what you tell us to read).

Remember, we want you to be happy with the product.

Either.

Retainer work is negotiable if it's a long term project but if you prefer just to work on one voice over project at a time, no problem...we do that all the time.
