What should I have on my demo reel

Show us as many styles as you can and that you know you can do well – retail, soft sell, a natural read, narration, character.  Versatility is good. Being able to put the right emphasis on the right words in the script is important.  Have a listen to some samples on the website to get an idea of what to record.

How do I get a quote

If all you want at this stage is a quote you can add any voice to a shortlist (don't worry it doesn't have to be your final voice), click the 'Go To Shortlist' button and then click the 'Next Step' button at the bottom of the page. You can then enter your script and it will calculate the fee according to the number of words.

You need to cut and paste the words and enter them into the content box. This will then automatically calculate the fee for your VO!
