So, how much does it cost to hire a voice actor? The simple answer is: “It depends!”

Additionally, keep in mind that discounts apply for internal use (developmental or scratch recordings) and select projects. Also Hybrid Agreements or Deferred Payment can be arranged for micro-budget projects.

WHEN WILL I GET MY VOICEOVER?

Shorter recordings can typically be delivered on the same work day! This also depends on the number of projects in the queue, requirements and scope of each.

Of course, skipping the queue may affect the cost of your voiceover during busy periods, so consider planning in advance to avoid additional fees!

On longer-term projects, you’ll receive status updates at a cadence that suits your needs.

For insights into current industry average rates please visit the GVAA Rate Guide or MEAA Commercial Voiceover Rates.
I reserve the right to re-issue a quote prior to performing work where the scope of work, usage, or script length has changed. Per line rates are available for indie productions, which are provided in good faith. A surcharge may be applied to the per-line rate for longer passages or monologues.
