Paul Berry Voice Over Studio and Rates
I have a professional home-based voice over studio setup with a custom built, acoustically treated voiceover booth. Recordings can be delivered in all the usual formats including .WAV and .MP3.
Most of my British voiceover jobs are 'self records' where I am emailed a script and I simply email the recording back as a download via Mail a Big File or We Transfer.
For directed sessions, I can use Source Connect NOW and Clean Feed. And of course, I can also be directed via Skype, Zoom or even over the phone. Add an additional fee of £80 per hour for a directed session.

Voice Over Studio Rates
Every voiceover job is different and it's often impossible to give a blanket rate for a job when there are so many variables involved. If you need an idea of what a voiceover job will cost, email me or call 07751 735954 if you need any more details or advice. I will always try to be as flexible as possible.
On very rare occasions, I do hire out the voice over studio to external talent (indeed it was used in 2018 by Dr Maggie Aderin Pocock MBE from the BBC's The Sky at Night to record some additional dialogue, and by actor Jonas Armstrong in 2021 to record some voiceovers). Get in touch if I can help.
Broadcast Radio Voice Over
I can work out a deal for regular radio jobs if you know that a few voiceovers will be coming my way.
For non-regular radio voiceover work I use the standard fees for local radio commercials defined by Equity, so find out the rate on their website then do the math - or I can do it for you. Note that this is for ‘over the fence’ reads where you email me a script and I email you a file back. If you want a directed read then phone or email me so we can sort something out.
Voiceover Broadcast TV
Visit www.usefee.tv to calculate rates for these. First you need to know my basic studio fee which is £80 per hour. You need to know the TVRs. Enter these into the www.usefee.tv site. If unsure, please get in touch and I will give you a quote. If in doubt, get in touch!
In-store Audio Voiceovers /DOOH
(leisure centre, shopping centre, medical centre etc)
Please contact me for a direct quote detailing the nature of the job. Larger site network rates available on request.
These jobs can vary greatly in complexity and length, often requiring lots of separate audio files to be edited so please contact me with details of the project and I can give you a quote.
For anything not listed please contact me by email or call 07751 735954. I'm sure we can sort something out!
