If your project requires a voice over, burberry sale,discount ugg boots, and you have checked out voice talents' prices, you have probably discovered that voice overs are not cheap. Here are 10 tips for reducing the cost of your project. Tip 1: Choose a talent with good recording equipment At the very least, a voice talent should have a studio-quality microphone (not a cheap computer microphone!) This is mandatory, cheap burberry! The quality of the audio is in a large part determined by the quality of the microphone. In the recording world, there is a saying: “Garbage in,France coco chanel metal color pump shoes, ugg outlet, garbage out”… Additional equipment might be: an audio interface, mixer, professional audio software, cheap ugg boots, and acoustic treatments. In order to gauge the quality of a talent’s recording equipment, ask them whether their demos were recorded in their home studio. If the answer is yes, then listen to the demos to decide whether the quality suits your needs. If the talent recorded their demos elsewhere, then request a sample file recorded at the home studio to determine the sound quality. Tip 2: Choose a talent with training and/or experience Voice over is a craft. If a voice talent is good at their work, they make it look easy. That does not mean that it is easy. A professional voice talent has excellent enunciation, ability to read difficult words and alliterative phrases without stumbling, knowledge of how to speak into a microphone correctly, and more. A voice talent straight out of voice over training will have acquired all of the skills in the course of their studies. Likewise,Ugg Navy Classic Cardy 5819, a voice talent without training but with extensive experience will have acquired these skills on the job. In contrast, a person who simply decided that from now on they will call themselves a voice talent will not have the requisite skills. It is therefore important to hire someone who has either training or experience or both. Hiring someone with no credentials will guarantee that your project will need to be rerecorded by a professional,Ugg chocolate Classic Mi 5854, chanel boots, thus costing you extra money and hassle. Tip 3: Choose a talent whose demos reflect the style you want Listen to the demos on the talent's website. Do any of them reflect the style that you want for your project? If not, uggs clearance, then how do you know that the talent will be able to deliver the style you need? A talent may excel at hard-sell commercials yet be unable to deliver copy convincing in a conversational style. By checking whether the voice talent is able to deliver the style you need, you avoid the potential expense of having to hire another talent to rerecord the project. Tip 4: Check the talent's recut policy A recut is when the voice talent re-records part or all of the text. Usually, ugg boots clearance, if a recut is requested due to a mistake made in the reading or recording, the talent will re-cut the relevant part of the script for free. However, if you need a re-cut due to a change in script or direction, the talent will usually charge you for the re-cut at a discounted rate. The talent usually limits the number of times they are willing provide re-cuts at a discounted price.|||If your script is significantly shorter than the script length covered by the talent's minimum fee,burberry sale, (for example if the talent's minimum fee is for 2 – 2.5 minute script,Ugg black Sundance 5325, cheap uggs, and your script is :30 sec), it is worth asking the talent if they can include a free recut in the price. Tip 5: Make sure your script is final As mentioned, if you need a re-cut due to a change in script, discount ugg boots,Chanel Face Brush, the talent will usually charge you for the re-cut,Burberry Taffeta Trench Coat Gray 0411410030967, albeit at a discounted rate. You can easily avoid this extra expense by finalizing your script before sending it to the talent. Tip 6: Make sure your direction is final As metioned, if you need a re-cut due to a change in direction, the talent will usually charge you for the re-cut, albeit at a discounted rate. It is therefore a good idea to make sure you know what style and pace you want, and to convey your direction requests to the talent, before recording commences. When you write the script,Burberry Black Medium Tie Dye Smoked Check 37541871, include instructions to the voice talent. Put words that should be emphasized in bold or italics, and if you need longer pauses write that in the script, too. Here are some sample scripts. To help explain the talent what style of reading you need,Ugg black Classic Cardy 5819, listen to the demos on the talent's website and choose one that demonstrates the style you are looking for. Ask the talent to use the same tone of voice as in that demo. This is the best way to get the exact style you want, as it leaves no room for misunderstanding. Tip 7: Cut out the third-party studio Many voice talents have their own home studio, but not all are set up for clients to sit in on recording sessions. If you feel you must be present for a recording,France coco chanel white and red sandals, you will usually have to meet the voice talent at a local studio (unless the talent has a phone patch or ISDN). This means that you have to pay for both the voice talent and the studio. To avoid the additional cost of a third-party studio, provide the talent with sufficient direction that they can record at their home studio without you present. If you are concerned that the talent will not follow direction well, ask them if they are willing to record a custom demo of a small part of the script, so that you can approve the tone and pace before they start recording. Some talents will record a short custom demo for free. Finally, you can weigh the cost of a potential recut versus the third-party studio's cost. Tip 8: Pay by word, page,Ugg pk Classic Short 5825, or unit,Ugg chestnut Ultra Tall 5245, but not by hour Voice talents charge in a variety of ways, including by hour. When recording at a third-party studio, this is the accepted method. However,Ugg sand Classic Mi 5854, when the talent records at their home studio,Ugg Navy Classic Tall 5815, it is preferable to pay by a unit other than time. This is because voice talents' primary skill is recording: They record scripts skillfully and efficiently. However, recording at their home studio usually means that they must also edit the audio,Women's Bailey Button 5803, a task which they may perform skillfully,Ugg Rose Classic Cardy 5819, but perhaps not efficiently. To ensure that a voice talent's possibly slow editing skills don't bulk up your bill,Chanel Bracelet, try to find a talent who chanrges by a unit that is not dependent on the talent's editing speed, for example per page,Burberry Black Meduim Haymarket Check 2147483647, per word, or per commercial. Such payment schemes also enable you to calculate the project's cost up front. Tip 9: Consider editing your own audio When editing a voice over, the talent must: Remove errors, breaths, and random sounds Adjusting the volume as needed Cut the audio into individual files Convert the files to the desired format Saving the files with the desired file names All this is very time-consuming, and some voice talents will be willing to charge you a lower rate if they do not have to perform these tasks. Ask the talent if they can offer you a lower rate for raw audio and/or audio in a single file. Raw audio means that you would receive the audio with all errors, breaths,Burberry Black Small Nova Check 36902761, noise, etc. You would need to edit it yourself. A single file means that you would have to cut the audio into multiple files (if your project requires this) and name them yourself. To edit audio, all you need is suitable audio editing software, such as Audacity, which is available as a free download. Cutting an audio file into multiple files is extremely simple. Editing is also simple, but requires some practice. Regardless, it is a good idea to try your hand at editing before you try this cost-reduction tip. Tip 10: Choose the talent by quality, not only by price There are a multitude of people on the Internet who advertise themselves as voice talents,France coco chanel white blue flat shoes, but who in fact have: No training No experience No quality equipment No talent These people mistakenly think that anyone can do voice over,Burberry Black Slim Sateen Trench Coat 44363971, and all you need is a microphone. They are wrong. Voice over takes skill, ability,Women Collection, and training, as well as decent equipment on which you can produce clean sound. In order to entice you to hire them despite their lack of qualification for the job, these people will offer very low, non-standard prices. In order to make sure that the buck they earn is a fast buck,Burberry Green Frilled Panel Sateen Dress 37580501, they will spend a minimal amount of time recording your project and send you unprofessional, low-quality work. In other words,Chanel Earrings, you get what you pay for. In your quest to reduce costs on your voice over project, consider the following: If you hire a hack and end up with a low-quality recording, you may very well have to hire a professional voice talent to record the project from scratch, in which case you will have paid twice.Video production in Portland OR? When thinking about the state of Oregon many images come to mind, such as the Oregon Trail, lumberjacks, deep evergreen forests, wild terrain, and untamed landscapes to name a few. This stereotype is certainly a far cry away from that of California with its massive city blocks, cutting-edge fashion industry, consumer-driven economy and tourist attracting palm trees. Oregon and Los Angeles now have something very similar in common however: both states are home to a booming film and video production industry. Oregon may not have the famed reputation of Los Angeles and Hollywood,Burberry Purple Regimental Wool Duffle Coat 37637571, but that doesn’t mean Oregon isn’t putting video production on the map. Since 1908, more than 300 movies have used Oregon as a backdrop,Burberry Crossbody Bag, including “One Flew Over the Cuckoos” Nest, “The Goonies,” “Stand By Me,” “Animal House,” “Kindergarten Cop,” “Homeward Bound,” “Free Willie,” “The River Wild,” “The Postman,” “Bandits,” “Twilight” and “Coraline.” Portland was even recently named the third best city to produce films in the United States. With the success of recent Oregon productions, Oregon is finally getting the recognition it deserves. There are many reasons Oregon video production industry has been growing rapidly in the last several years. For one thing, it has an outstanding variety of locations. Leonard Henderson of Chambers Productions is happy he found such a central,France coco chanel black high sandals, practical location to build his career as a director of photography; “Chambers Productions is located in Eugene, Oregon,France coco chanel brown pump shoes, which is in Lane County. It is the second largest city in the state of Oregon,France coco chanel black sandals, and it is conveniently located a few miles from going skiing and a few miles from being at the ocean.” In Oregon, you can find mountains, beaches, ghost towns, deserts, lakes, rivers,France coco chanel coffee high sandals, streams,Ugg Lemon Classic Tall 5815, little towns,UGG Tassel Boot Short 5835, modern cities, and lava flows to match any filming desire,Chanel Women Coat, as stated on the Governor’s Office of Film and Television Web site. “Oregon does have a lot of locations that are really visually stunning, or just fit a story really well. There is a reason to come here!” Says the owner of Moving Image Productions, which is also located in Lane County. One of the rarest attributes about these locations is that most of them are fee-free. Oregon has 20 cities and two counties that do not charge for film permits at all.|||In addition to the natural beauty,France coco chanel black colorful bling pump shoes, Oregon has been enticing producers with financial incentives. To start, Oregon has no sales tax whatsoever. This is unusual around the United States and saves major productions countless dollars. As if that weren’t enough, the Governor’s Office of Film and Television recently implemented additional financial incentives for filming in Oregon. The programs rebate 20 percent of Oregon-based goods and services,Burberry Bowling bag, and an additional cash payment of up to 16.2 percent of wages paid to production personnel. Unlike other states’ programs, these incentives are cash rebates as opposed to tax credits so the money is back into the pocket and can be ready to spend much quicker. “I have been working at Chambers for about four years. In the last two years, we have seen quite a bit of business from the incentives in the film industry here in Oregon. Chambers has produced two feature films in the last two years, and has plans to do at least three more in the next coming year,Chanel Handbags,” says Deborah Rezell, a producer at Chambers. The largest media company based in Oregon is Chambers Communications, which was established 45 years ago by Carolyn Chambers. Chambers specializes in corporate and commercial video, yet has been getting more involved with independent films in recent years. Its recent films include “Fire on the Track,” “Puerto Vallarta Squeeze,” “The Sisters,” “Chamaco,cheap burberry,” “Arcadia Lost,” and the newest addition yet to be filmed, “Something Wicked.” Even though all of these movies are considered “independent,” Chambers has drawn several recognizable actors to work on its films,France coco chanel black bling pump shoes, including Harvey Keitel, Martin Sheen, and Nick Nolte. Chambers plans on starting production on “Something Wicked” this April, and intends on doing all the work in and around their 100,000 square foot studio complex located on eight acres in Eugene, Oregon. According to Chamber’s Web site, “Something Wicked,” is a current day action thriller set in a mid-sized American community (Eugene, Oregon) in the Pacific Northwest.” Even E.V. Di Massa, Jr., the producer of the Oprah Winfrey Show, was surprised by the production quality available in Oregon stating that “during a 35 year career of producing film and television all over the world…who knew that I would find the finest facilities and creative people that I’ve ever met in Eugene, Oregon.” Film isn’t the only video medium being produced in Oregon either. On February 26, 2009,France coco chanel red black pump shoes, Oregon Governor, Ted Kulongoski,Burberry Virgin Wool Sculptural Coat With Tapered Sleeves Tangerine 44492421, announced that Electric Entertainment and TNT will relocate the hit television series,Ugg red Classic Short 5825, “Leverage,” to Oregon, “creating long-term job opportunities and higher than average wages with benefits for Oregonians hired as cast and crew.” This show alone will invest millions of dollars into the Oregon economy helping to boost Oregon’s ever growing reputation for video production. Dean Devlin, Electric Entertainment Founder and “Leverage” executive producer,Chanel Women Sneaker, said that him and his crew were very impressed by the professionalism of Oregon’s film industry and locations, which made them very confident in their decision to relocate to Oregon for the second season of his show. Moving Image Productions, located in Eugene, Oregon, focuses the majority of its videography on educational programs,Chanel Keychain, training videos, and documentaries. By avoiding the commercial side of video production, Moving Image Productions has found a fulfilling career niche helping out the community and being creative. Will Doolittle, the owner, director, and producer of Moving Image Productions,Burberry Smoked Check Bowling Beige 2147483647, says that “Ever since I came to Oregon, one of my personal focuses has been to get involved in social change activities.” Doolittle has followed this passion and says that to this day he tries to “actually use my skills and my energy to do more than just make a living and get rich,Ugg Grey Tassel Boot Short 5835, but to move things forward in the world to change society in a way that makes it more fair and just for everybody.” Video production Portland Oregon is an amazing industry in today’s technology-driven day and age because it promotes artistic expression, brings in millions of dollars for the economy,Burberry Black Double Breasted Packaway Trench Coat 37431231, and has an ultimate power to greatly influence others. Video has become very mainstream with technologies such as TiVo and digital video recorders, as well as the international use on Internet sites such as YouTube and Vimeo. Video has the power to seriously influence, or to simply entertain. It has become so pervasive in society that it seems almost impossible to have a successful business that does not use video to promote itself. Luckily for Oregonians, the video production industry has made its mark,Burberry Blue Medium Embossed Check Patent Leather 37230061, claimed its territory, and seems to be here to stay.
