Voice Over Rate Card
If you would like my voice on your project, then this rate card will give you an general sense of my pricing structure.
There are multiples of variables when producing voiceovers; format, distribution, audience, broadcast medium, usage fees etc etc.
So as with any rate card, this is purely a baseline guide. Get in touch to request a quote, and I’ll come back to you as soon as possible.

Usage fees (sometimes also known as buy-out fees) are additional fees payable to the voice artist for the ongoing use of their voice recording.
If you have commissioned a voice recording for use solely within your own organisation, for example a staff training film, then usage fees may not apply. Whereas if a recording is commissioned for use in the public domain, there will usually be usage fees payable to the artist. The public domain includes all instances where the voice recording is accessible by the public in some way. Examples include TV shows, films, commercials, radio broadcasts, public websites and in-flight presentations. Usage fees are usually also payable for recordings used in video games, in-store broadcasts, exhibitions, events and museum audio tours. Please get in touch to request a quote.
