FAQs to answer before you request your quote, that contribute in the calculation of the quote: -

1- How will the voice be used?

What are the buyout rights?

  • Primarily, how the voice is going to be used is the most prominent factor in determining the quote. Will the voice be used publicly or internally? is it a promotion? a commercial content? non-profit? video game, dubbing or social media content, etc.
  • A voice-over can be used in many ways, hence, it is highly recommended that you clarify the intended purpose of the product

2- How long is the content?

This determines the studio’s allocation based on:

  • Word count
  • Intended duration of the final content
  • How the audio will be edited and delivered
  • Any post-production services requested?
  • The language genre used in the script, e.g. Medical? Technical? Lore? Religious?

These are the contributing factors in determining how much a project would cost

3- What is the recording nature?

How the scripts are to be read definitely affects the recording time, as different reads require different approaches; here are the most common ones:

  • Wild read:
    Reading entirely free without a reference at the natural pace
  • Time sync
    Reading a script timed with visuals or during a certain time window
  • Lip sync
    Reading an adapted script exactly to lip movements
  • Audio Drama (a mix of wild and acting)
    Reading an adapted script based on an animation that is yet to be drawn, it is a hybrid between wild reads and acting

4- Where the chosen voice talent resides

As you may already know, different countries have different cost of living and market prices, hence:

The selected voice talent, in accordance to the project’s requirements; will definitely affect quote depending on which part of the world the chosen talent resides

5- Are child actors needed?

Child Actors require much more direction, supervision and take more time recording

Hence, it is a wise choice to choose whether it is necessary to have a child actor in a project or have the child roles done by child-sounding-like adults
