Voiceover and Audio Production News for December 2013

December's a short month, as we closed just before Christmas to give everyone a full two-week break.

During this time we carried out the Translation of a video from English to Arabic for QinetiQ and the Translation of a video for Wirth Research which was then voiced by Michel. We also made a Voiceover Showreel for actor Roderick Wood from Sussex and did Copywriting for Interxion which was then voiced by Alec.

For our male voice artists, Darren voiced for Sony, Ricky recorded a voiceover for Eurocamp and the European Food Safety Authority, Brian recorded another voiceover for SHL Talent Analytics, Bob voiced for BAT and Alan L recorded for Network London

For our female voice talent, Helen S recorded another voiceover for the Guardian and Immy voiced for MagiGlide.

For our international voice artistes, Caroline recorded voiceovers for Sony, Jay recorded a Filipino voiceover in Tagalog for National Geographic Channel and Colin C voiced for World Remit.

Here's to a prosperous 2014 for everyone!

How Cheap is Too Cheap for Voiceovers?

We try to be as flexible as possible when it comes to prices and fitting in with very tight budgets for voiceovers. We did this recently for some lovely people working on some animations for the BBC Bitesize website.

But how low can you go? Sometimes - like any voiceover artist  or voice agency, you just have to say no.

We had two cases recently which involved a massive organisation which wanted us to send a child voice talent to a studio in London or Manchester (they couldn't decide which) for £25ph!

Another would-be client, for whom we had previously made a web video, wanted to pay the same price for a voiceover for TV commercial airing on three channels. He would just not pay a penny more. We had to say no to this one too. I wonder who he got to do this voiceover?
