That's why there's the I Don't Want to Do It Price™.

He hated voicing from a booth, so he often VO'd from outside the booth with a 416.Some of his VO promo sessions were loaded with XXX commentary as he recorded. (Um, "salty language") A real ...

My minimum is $100 per page, with a monthly guarantee of $300, even if less than 3 pages. But I've worked for stations that paid quite a lot more. As well as stations that up my fees with every annu ...

Related but unrelated. When COVID hit, the only acting genre that kept going was VO. Animation was never recorded from home studios. But with COVID came the necessity for animation actors to upgrad ...

It's an interesting piece. Since the majority of vo today is non-union, fewer actors benefit from working union. I was just lucky that when I got in the majority was union. Now, it was far harder t ...

I do not do audio books, but I know many union actors who voice union audio books all the time. So, there is a contract somewhere.
