Rates & Information

Generally, session fees are fixed, but there is room for negotiation depending on the distribution.  If you need a general idea of the going rates in the industry, click on this link: Industry Standard Session Fees

Before I can give you a quote, I need to know:

  • The copy/script length
  • In [00:00] for Commercial
  • In word count for Narration

  • Intended usage
  • Digital Advertising (web, paid or organic social media)
  • YouTube (paid or organic)
  • TV broadcast (local or national)
  • Radio (FM or Satellite)

  • Term of Use
  • How long it will be in use OR if you prefer total buyout

  • If your project is a one-off or part of a series
  • If there are any character/dialectical requirements
  • Your deadline

Please keep in mind that finely-tuned crisp editing comes standard in my final product, which takes time as well. Commercial projects come standard with unlimited revisions for one week after delivery.

Make sure that the copy you send me contains no errors at all - I read exactly what is on the script!  I also provide language editing services for overseas clientele. 

Please consider/avoid:

  • Run-on sentences
  • Grammatical or syntactical errors
  • Specify aconyms l "ACT" or "A See Tee"
  • Specify conjunctions involving "/"s that may be spoken as "or", "per" etc.

Let me know of any minor pickups/retakes (due to performance, pace, tone) you would like to make within one week after delivery. Re-takes due to script errors or minor script changes will incur a charge.

Major re-writes due to consistent errors (as listed above) constitute a new project and warrants an additional session fee.

In most cases, I "watermark" my final product and keep the final recording until final payment is received.

Regardless of your budget, if you are interested in building a relationship, I would like to chat directly with you so we can see if we can work something out.

Remember, as my client, you are paying for a product as well as my dutiful service and years of experience.  I look forward to working with you now, and in the future!
