Most projects have a 24 hour turnaround
Marlena will take your script and clarify the style you're looking and any other details, sometimes recording a sample for longer projects to make sure you're getting the final product you deserve. Then she'll record, edit in Adobe Audition CC, and send it back with your preferred method and file type, most of the time within 24 hours of receiving the script.
She will also provide corrections for changes in tone, pacing, pronunciation, etc.
Marlena had my project completed 15 minutes after the proposal was accepted..literally! (and this was at 7pm on a Wednesday) Every single track was perfect, every single name was pronounced correctly, I didn't have to ask for a single revision. Seriously one of the best!Georgia Associated Reality
We had a voice over job where we tried out several other people but they just did not hit the mark - then we found Marlena which ended up being the right choice. She took the job on....very few questions, and completed it in just a few hours on a holiday weekend - wow - not what I was expecting. The VO work required her to sync voice to a video of a product demonstration. He final product - which she got right on the first submission to us matched the video perfectly. You won't go wrong with her for VO work, as it was A+ with great customer service. We will use her againClient on Elance.com
She was outstanding. Very good value for her effort. I even got progress over the weekend. Hard to find that dedication these days.Client on Upwork.com
