Voiceover Service Rates

I’m happy to work within many clients’ budgets to deliver a quality voiceover for their projects at a price they can afford.  For additional rate information, custom quotes, or to inquire about a project type that’s not listed here, please contact me.

Dubbing

Dubbing can be necessary in both animation and live-action projects. I match voiceover to pre-recorded/pre-animated mouth movements. (For "pre-lay" animation rates see "Animation, Cartoon, Video Game.”)

  • Broadcast: $200/hour

  • Non-Broadcast (Internet): $125/hour

 

Note: Dubbing can involve replacing the original language with English-language voiceover or replacing the original voice talent with my voice. Some reasons you might need live-action dubbing include:

  • Replacing the original voice

  • Fixing lines when the live audio is faulty

  • "Cleaning up" language for a TV broadcast of a film (removing profanity, etc.)

  • Providing background "murmur" for crowd scenes
