So, you require a voiceover artist for your latest project - maybe it’s an animation, e-learning video or a commercial; a corporate read, IVR recording or even an audiobook!
But when sourcing an artist do you have an idea as to what budget should you set aside?
At Great British Voices, we appreciate there is no such thing as a ‘standard rate’ and ALWAYS take our client’s budgets into consideration when providing a quote.
However, we also never wish to undervalue the industry or artists. So, here are a few things we consider when providing our clients with a quote for their VO project -
It’s also worth taking into consideration that you’re not only paying for the studio session on the day but, in most cases, you’re also paying for artists to clean/edit the material after and provide a round of pick-ups too, if required.
And where usage is involved, we always address renewing the rights to use the artist's voice on your project - in the same way, you’d renew your TV licence or your car insurance.
One of the main reasons we do this is because voicing for one company/brand may prevent the artist from working for a similar/competing brand in the future.
If you’d like to see how we set our rates, then do click through to the UK Voiceover Industry Rate Guide.
Don’t let your budget stop you! At Great British Voices, we have 100’s of professional British & International voiceover artists, all with their own homestudio set up, so they don’t have to book or travel to a local studio unless you require them too.
So, if you’d like to book a voiceover artist or discuss your project requirements contact firstname.lastname@example.org
ALL of our artists are flexible with rates and providing that there is no ambiguity on where their voice is being used, then we are always happy to put artists forward for work.
Dial-in is also available with most of our artists so you can direct them as they record your script.
And finally, if you don’t know what kind of voice you’re after, pop us an email and let us create you a personalised shortlist.
Whatever voice you're after, we'll source them for you at greatbritishvoices.co.uk
