My rates are highly competitive and are priced by market sector. Voice over recordings and their associated usage payments ( where they apply ) can get a little complex, so please do contact me and I’ll be happy to discuss or fill out my questionnaire for a quotation.
I usually charge a BSF (Basic Sesson Fee) of £250 per hour + usage fees.
The BSF includes hire of my studio, recording, cleaning and editing of audio and delivery.
I don’t normally charge a BSF for the following types of work.
IVR Prompts – Charged at price per prompt. Minimum studio fees apply
Audio Books – Can be calculated on a per finished hour rate. Please ask for rates. Minimum studio fees apply.
Usage is applied for broadcast TV and radio adverts, non commercial videos distributed online and paid for online advertising (Youtube Preroll, Facebook and Instagram) and is paid in the form of a licence fee. A licence will be granted for a set duration.
The amount for the licence really depends on the exposure or reach , duration and mediums through which the recording is transmitted to the public.
Usage will not be applied to the following types of work:
Explainer or corporate videos – (where the video will only be viewed by the staff, or contractors) The content must not appear within the public domain and only interally on a customers intranet. Sometimes the license for this kind of recording is known as an “internal only” license.
Payments terms are normally 30 days. For first time overseas clients I may ask for full or partial payment up front. Payments can be made via bank transfer, Paypal, Credit Card or Transferwise.
