Thank you for choosing my voice for your project. I look forward to getting started!
To help us get to your desired result as smoothly and quickly as possible, I have set up this agreement. Please take a few minutes to look through the sections and let me know via e-mail if you agree.
If your project requires changes to these agreements, I am happy to discuss that with you up-front. If you have any questions, please let me know.
Providing a briefing
Timing and pace of the voice-over
It is important to let me know if you need the voice-over to fit within a specific timing in order to keep within the time of a video. If you do explicitly tell me to keep to a certain timing or pacing, I will assume that you are giving me freedom te determine a pacing that I see fit for the script, and will later animate or adjust the video to the speed of my voice.
Retakes are free of charge in case of mistakes on my part or if you are not 100% happy with the end result, as long as we stick to the original briefing.
If you choose to direct me in a live session, the result of that session is final. Re-takes after that session can be done at additional cost.
Timing and pacing: If you require me to adhere to a certain timing or if you need the recording to be under a certain length, you need to explicitly state this when sending me the approved script. If you do not state this explicitly, I will assume that you are going to adjust the timing of your video to the pace of my voice-over. If you do not specify this up-front, re-takes will come at additional charge.
Pronunciation: It is your responsibility to indicate your desired pronunciation of foreign language words, acronyms and company or product names.
Sometimes changes need to be made unexpectedly, after the recording has been done.
For smaller projects up to 1200 words (not including commercials), I include one small round of pick-ups in my standard rates. This means that if you have one or two sentences that need to be changed, I will re-record them for free. For larger changes, the rates are as follows; 3-7 sentences costs €100,-, larger changes cost 50% of the project rate (min. €100,-). For any second correction round, 1-7 sentences cost €100,- and larger changes cost 50% of the project rate (min. €100,-).
For larger projects, I also include a small round of pick-ups. This can be up to 10 sentences. Larger changes will be charged €0,40 per word with a minimum of €100,- per session. Any second round of changes will cost €0,40 per word with a minimum of €100,- per session. If you want to simply add text to a project, then the rate per word is the same as the project rate.
For commercials any changes can be made for the full session fee of €350,-, unless agreed otherwise upfront.
As stated in the section above, re-recordings for tone-of-voice are free of charge, as long as we stick to the original briefing. If you want me to re-record for tone-of-voice and simultaneously make some script changes, you will still be charged for the script changes.
When you send me the final, client-approved script, I will assume that your client knows about these potential extra costs.
While I will proofread each script that I receive to the best of my ability. However, the end responsibility for a correct script lies with you, the client. If having 100% correct grammar is absolutely essential in your project, then I recommend you have your script checked by a professional copy writer.
I cannot record a script that is full of mistakes. When I receive scripts that are badly written or translated and I anticipate that correcting it will take me a lot of time, I will offer to re-translate it for a fee.
Billing and payment
I understand your need for me to be reliable, flexible and fast in the delivery of your voice-over recordings. Therefore I work hard to ensure you have what you need in time to hit your deadlines. In return I ask that payments for my services are made on time. The rights to use the recording are transferred upon payment of the invoice.
You will receive an invoice upon delivery of the first version of the recording. Payment is due within 30 days of receiving the invoice.
Transfers can be made as follows:
