FAQ

Nice examples, but how do I know for sure whether you are suitable for my voice-over project?

That's a very normal question. It is not always easy to estimate whether a voice fits your specific project. The examples all sound fine, but every project is unique and requires a unique voice.

Is your project ready yet? Send me the video and/or audio you already have. That helps me continue to feel the particular tone-of-voice of your project. Is your project still in development? Even then I can help you. I'll make a custom demo for free. Do you feel comfortable? Then I will record the entire text for you.

Can I introduce your voice to my client?

Of course! Download my demos and send them to your client. Or show the way to my website, whatever you're comfortable with. Would you like a custom demo? That's possible too. Shoot me an email, chat, or call me and I will record that demo for you.

When can I expect your recording?

Quick. It usually takes me only a couple of hours.

I don't like to underdeliver, that's why I say "within 24 hours". Because sometimes I'm busy with other work or longer projects for other clients and I can't - and don't want to - rush your recording.

 

Note that everything depends on the length of your script and how busy I am with other projects. So if you are really in a rush please contact me beforehand so I can block my schedule for you and I can let you know what's possible and what's not.

How will you deliver my recording?

Good question. My standard is WAV 48khz 32 bits. But if you prefer another format or other specs, that's possible too. Just let me know. Don't worry if your mailbox can't handle large files, the attachment will be in the cloud so you never have to worry about recordings that are too large.

So.. what's in the file/recording that I will get?

For commercials, animation videos and explainers up to two minutes, you will get several reads. Usually you receive three different reads. Do you prefer the beginning of read one and the ending of read three? Ask your editor to combine them or let me know and I can edit them together for you.

If your script is longer - like for e-learnings and other longer scripts - then you will receive one read.

How much does a voice over cost?

The cost depends on the medium the recording will be used on (tv, radio, internet,...) - which is the usage fee - and the length of the script. You can find more info about my rates here.

Shoot me an email of you'd like a quote. I accept US checks in US dollar, Paypal, Zelle, Apple Pay and you can wire or transfer to my bank account.
