WHAT IS A REVISION?

A ‘revision’ is a change to an audio recording requested by a client during the course of a project. Often referred to as an ‘edit’, a revision typically take the form of script changes, and can be requested for a variety of reasons:
 

  • Changes to the client's project scope or objectives
  • Feedback on an audio take, read or script delivery
  • The need for additional takes or reads of the same line with different delivery
 

HOW MUCH SHOULD I CHARGE FOR A REVISION?


Determining how much to charge for a revision as part of your proposal is dependent on a variety of factors. While there is no set or suggested amounts, there are a number of things to consider when creating your voice over quote . We also suggest that you stand by your own pricing structure. 
 

HOW DO I SET A REVISION POLICY?

When auditioning for a job, you have the option of including a revision policy before submitting your full proposal. 

 

WHAT SHOULD I INCLUDE IN A REVISION POLICY? 

The Revision Policy section of the audition form is an open-ended text field, meaning you can type anything you feel is relevant to your own Revision Policy. If you are unsure of what to include, you can use this default reference copy as a starting or reference point:

Performance Mistakes: Mispronunciations or missing words are fixed at no charge.

Artistic Edits: One round of feedback concerning pacing or tone is included at no charge. I typically charge [$X] for each round afterwards.

Script Rewrites: One round of rewrites, that are less than 10% of the final script, is included at no charge. Additional rounds typically cost [$X for each round afterwards or X% of the original budget]. Rewrites beyond 10% will be quoted upon request.


For more guidance on what to include in a Proposal or a Revision Policy, you can read this article: How to Write a Strong Proposal.
 
 

CAN I CHANGE MY REVISION POLICY?

A revision policy applies only to the job to which you are submitting a proposal. This means you can change your revision policy for future jobs depending on the nature of the work and your own approach to revisions. 

If, after submitting a proposal, you’d like to change your revision policy, you can do so by editing your proposal. Please note, that you can only edit this proposal before being hired for the job and while the job is still in a ‘HIRING’ or ‘DECIDING’ phase, up to a maximum of three times.
 

CAN I SET A DEFAULT REVISION POLICY?

Yes, you can create a custom audition Template that includes templates for both your Proposal and Revision Policy. You can create a template by accessing the ‘Templates’ page from the ‘Me’ drop-down in the main navigation bar. 

From there, you can click the ‘Create Template’ button and input a Template Name, and then your templated Proposal and Revision Policies. When creating a new template, both the You Proposal and Your Revision Policy fields will be populated with default copy. This copy can be used as a frame of reference to write your own Proposal and Revision Policy, or it can be deleted for you to write your own from scratch. Once you are happy with your Template, click ‘Save’ to save it for use in future auditions. For more information on how to create a Template, read the “How do I create a proposal template ” article.

To use a custom audition Template, select it from the ‘Select a Template’ drop-down on the ‘My Audition’ page when auditioning for a job.
 

HOW DO I GET PAID FOR REVISIONS?

To be paid for revisions beyond what is included in your revision policy, you will need to ask the client to Add a Payment to the project (via their job-level Agreements or Payments tab). Once they’ve added a payment, a new agreement will be sent to you for review, similar to the way an agreement was sent to initiate the project.
