what does a voiceover cost?
Good question. Rates for voiceover vary. This is usually to do with WHERE the VO is going to be used.
To simplify things, my fee involves 3 things:
1- A basic session fee (BSF): calculated according to the word length of your script.
2- A production fee: finish / edit the audio. I include this for free in projects under 200 wrds.
3- A usage license: Commercial or Broadcast usage.
Broadcast usage is paid media (TV, radio, paid online / social.) It's priced per month or full buyout and applies PER SPOT (eg per cutdown- 25/15/5 sec etc) A free live session is included for all broadcast orders.
Commercial usage is everything else: web videos, B2B, animations, internal videos, live events, training.
If yours is an e-learning project then no license is needed and the BSF is calculated in bands (500-1000 words, 1000-2000 words etc).
I also offer extras like:
- a live directed session via source connect or over zoom
- file splitting for e-learning modules
- time synching to your video.
so, what will my voiceover cost?
The best way to find out is to CONTACT ME for a custom quote. Let me know the word length, use and production needs of your project and we can get chatting.
