Successful Voiceover Process
Enquiry Discuss your vision, script, timelines, budget and usage requirements: what is it, where it is going, for how long?
Rates Industry standard recording and editing fees are at THE BOX OFFICE.
Quote Varies with recording session length, editing, usage fees, size of client, rush/weekend turnaround, technical /long narration, revisions, budget, number of spots / edits / cut downs. Ongoing work deals.
Usage This fee is paid to the performer on top of the recording session fee. It covers the future license of the voiceover for the specified usage time.
License VO artists own the copyright to the vocal performance and performance rights. The copyright of the script is owned by the author or hirer. VO artists license the use of the performance to clients as it is illegal in the UK to sell a performance. In the license agreement the agreed usage is detailed and once that expires the client is welcome to renew the license. Through payment of the invoice the client is agreeing to these terms.
Cut Downs The voiceover can be edited according to the usage terms however it can’t be sold on without permission and the license can’t be transferred to a second series or another iteration of the product.
In Perpetuity Correctly valued In Perpetuity is very expensive to buy because it is essentially a lifetime of licenses for that country or even more for global usage! It’s also difficult for VO artists to grant as it could cancel them out of future work in that industry or even larger sectors if other clients require exclusivity. VO Artists are very grateful if clients could calculate how long this voiceover will be needed and relevant, so they can quote accordingly, allowing our work options to stay open and for clients to stay within a reasonable budget!
