Home Studio Rates

Guideline Pricing in Dollars

After reviewing my home studio and how it works best regarding internet rates, I have put together this card as a guideline. Prices are negotiable dependent on the type of work, company and budget in hand. If you would like more information, please use the contact above.

Length of the Voice Over: There are two ways to do this:

1 – Time basis: Based on the actual time the recording will be
(Ie: 30 seconds, 60 seconds, 20 minutes, 1 hour etc.)

2 – Word basis (paging): Based on the number of words or pages the script has. One page contains 250 words on average (Arial 12 pt double spacing).

Total Word Count: Is associated with the rate related to the speed I would normally read. This varies from project to project.
Steady 100 words per minute – faster 150 words per minute.
500 – 750 per 5 minutes = Total Minutes of finished audio, or edited, mastered and delivered to your client.

N.B. If you intend to use four-syllable words, you should count these as two words.

Standard (non-broadcast) Narration:

1 min – 100 * 2 min – 175 * 3 min – 250 * 4 min – 300

5 Minutes finished audio = $325.00

After the first 5 minutes:
$50.00 per min. Up to 30 min.
