A short explanation
We try to be as transparent as possible when it comes to what a voice-over costs. However, every project is different, and therefore the price wil also vary from project to project. That's why it is difficult (without information about the project) to give an exact price, but we can give a starting price, feel free to contact us for a free quote. The price of a voice-over is related to two different aspects:
1. Production costs - These are the costs of producing the voice-over. They include the voice-over artist's recording fee, the sound engineer's fee, but also the studio rental fee, the post-production costs (editing and mixing the raw recordings) and any travel expenses for the voice-over. We deliver studio quality voice overs, so you will always get the quality we stand for and are proud of, but we do not compete on price.
Since we deliver studio quality voice-overs, the production price of an edited voice-over (no post-processing) starts at around €475,- excl. VAT. The production costs of a voice-over will almost always be higher for longer texts than for shorter ones.
2. The buy-out - Depending on the use of the voice-over, a buy-out might be needed. If a voice-over is put on a client website or is shared organically online, we do not charge a buy-out. Although, for commercials, for example, a buy-out is always required. In the buy-out you agree on how the voice-over may be used commercially (e.g. on which channels or social media platforms) and within what time frame (one year use is the standard).
The cost of a buy-out really depends on its use, for example, the buy-out of a regional radio spot is a lot cheaper than that of a national radio commercial. Feel free to contact us if you are unsure whether or not you need buy-out for your production.
