Jay Preston's Voice Over Rate Guide

Choosing to hire me as a Union talent is easier than you think and allows me to keep my healthcare & benefits as well as allowing you to build an extremely wonderful relationship working with one of my agents. Using me again in the future is extremely easy, paperwork is complete and if you need a different sounding voice, my agents have the top talent in the industry! If the word Union still frightens you and makes you uneasy, the non union rates are included here as well. All of my rates include;

  • script preparation (pronunciation, annotation etc.)

  • studio fee

  • professional, noise-free recording

  • editing

  • quality control (prooflistening)

  • free retakes, as long as they are not necessitated by changes in the script after the initial audio was recorded. The recording of a script that was revised after the first text was officially approved and recorded, is regarded and billed as a new project

  • uploading of audio in any formate you need

  • And of course: My added value as a proffesional voice talent with years of experience is always higher than my rate!
