24 hour turnaround for projects under 1,000 words.
I provide a prompt and efficient service for voice overs (24 hour turnaround for projects under a 1,000 words) covering everything from radio spots to IVRs to documentaries. I take great pride in delivering professional broadcast quality audio that is delivered on time. Based in Dubai this often means I can take advantage of the time difference and get briefed as clients go to bed so that when they wake up they have my audio in their inbox ready for their working day.
Having my own broadcast quality equipped with ProTools means I can turn around projects very quickly. Essentially how the process goes is as follows:
1.) - The script, clear scope of work and budget is approved
2.) - I record the audio in my studio on ProTools
3.) - I edit, debreath and tidy up the edit ready to supply you whatever format you need. This can be broadcast WAV, MP3 etc
4.) - I upload the files to wherever you need or mail it to you via We Transfer etc
5.) - You pay me :-)
Thats it! It really is that simple!
And if your not happy with what you have then let me know and I'll do it again till it's right.
I also offer script and copy writing services as well as help with choosing and supplying production music for your project. If there is a piece of well known music that you want to use, I can assist with the right clearance to allow you to use that music on YouTube etc.
Oh and one last thing... I'm a really nice bloke to work with!
