A call may be postponed within 24 hours of the booking without penalty provided that a further definite booking is made within 7 days of the original call. In all other cases a cancellation fee is payable. Only one postponement is allowed before a cancellation fee is incurred. If the rescheduled call is cancelled within the postponement period a cancellation fee is payable.
If less than 24 hours notice is given prior to time of the booking, a base rate of $190 per hour is payable.
Any voice or sound that is outside the range of an artist’s normal speaking voice, including any accent or voice for an animated character. If in doubt, please check with us at time of booking. Broadcast clearance of any character voice or impersonation is the responsibility of the client.
Exclusivity should not be presumed for any voice artist or any product. Exclusivity is by negotiation only.
The rates in this rate card are minimum rates only. We are free to negotiate rates with producers/ advertisers in excess of the rates set out herein, provided that where a single television track is intended to run with different tags (as defined) in a large national campaign that is substantial in nature and there are to be multiple tags produced in one session, then we may negotiate rates other than those set out in this rate sheet.
Double fee where the performer’s name (either visually or audibly) is to be used in conjunction with any campaign.
Where use exceeds the contracted period a rollover must be paid. The producer/advertiser must advise us before this occurs and arrange for the rollover fee to be paid. Rollovers are charged at current rates.
“Submission” is defined as a recording where a performer is asked to voice a proposed script for a commercial for demonstration purposes only. A submission track may be broadcast provided a final/ broadcast fee is paid. If a track is a submission, this must be notified to us at the time of booking otherwise the full fee is payable. It will be assumed, unless otherwise notified, that all submissions (excluding research-only tracks) are going to air. The balance of the final fee will be invoiced within 30 days of the date of the recording.
Usage considered to commence from date of recording unless otherwise notified.
