What is the turn around for voiceovers?
All voice orders submitted Monday through Friday are targeted to be completed within 24 hours, depending on the scheduling of the voice talent during the production process. If the selected voice actor is available, sometimes it can be a matter of hours.
What is the standard final file format?
Our typical file format is MP3. However, alternative formats may be requested - please be sure to note that in the Details section in the Book a Job form.
What about voice talent rights?
At Hired Gums, there are no renewals or royalties, which means it’s a total buyout. You can use our voiceover work in any market as long as you think it’s road ready.
What if I need to recut or revise the work Hired Gums does for me?
There is a talent fee for recuts - $125 for commercials and $200 for long format reads. It is recommended that you utilize the voice patch services in order to ensure you get what you want.
May I use multiple talent?
Additional voices are available and optional just specify your secondary reader in the Book a Job form. Depending on the script and scheduling of the voice talent, separate script reads and turnaround time may be required. Please note that additional fees are incurred at a discounted price when multiple voice actors are used.
What if I have multiple scripts?
You may have multiple scripts for multiple talent in one order. However, to ensure that the correct script goes to each voice actor, we require you to upload each script separately in the Book a Job form. Please note that additional fees are incurred at a discounted price when multiple talent is used.
Can one voice actor perform multiple characters in a script?
Yes, talent can perform multiple, distinct characters, or dialects. If you’d like to submit a script that requires more than one character, you may either select different voice actors for each role or choose one voice actor capable of performing the entire script.
What types of payment does Hired Gums accept?
Payment for your voiceover can be made with any of the major credit cards including Mastercard, VISA, American Express, and Discover.
