So you’re ready to record! Here’s what you need to do, to get your project rolling:
- Contact me via the Contact Victoria page.
- Let me know the following details about your project:
- The project’s genre
For example: website, high-tech tutorial, medical narration, corporate video, video game, commercial, etc.
- The project’s deadline
Your deadline is important to me!
- Your contact details
Including email address and telephone number.
- The desired delivery style
For example: Formal, friendly, conversational, sensual, soft, young, mature, marketing-oriented, etc.
The best way to let me know which style you want is to listen to my voiceover demos and tell me which one represents the style you want.
- The desired pace
For example: Fast, medium, slow.
Note that standard reading speed is around 140-160 words per minute.
- The maximum length of the audio, and whether a specific timeline is required
This is mainly relevant if you have a video that is already ready.
- The desired file format
For example: WAV, MP3, etc.
- The desired number of audio files
You might need the script recorded as a single audio file or as multiple audio files.
- Send me the following things via email (files up to 10 MB) or dropbox (files over 10 MB):
- The final script
The script should be final, to avoid unnecessary recuts.
Note that if the voiceover must be prepared according to a specific timeline and/or cut into multiple files, the script should include the relevant information. See How Do I Prepare a Voiceover Script? for details.
For your convenience, you can download an MS Word file with a standard voiceover script template.
- Any additional material
If you have a video presentation or music prepared, please send it to me.
If your project is a video game or animation, send me a picture of the character I am to play.
That’s it! You’re ready to go!
