Rates, Booking, Payment & Delivery

Lili collaborates like a member of your own team. For access to the 2019 rate sheet, Lili will need to know who the client/product is, where the production will be used, and for how long. Once Lili has this information she will email her rate sheet. If the rates are in line with your budget, simply schedule a recording session by booking an available time on her calendar, below.

Booking Guidelines

Call into the studio to monitor & direct a session: For short narrations under 3 minutes, booking a 30 minute slot is usually sufficient. For commercials, or if you simply prefer more time to record, feel free to schedule a 1 hour slot. Note that preparation and editing can take up to 90 minutes on either side of a recording.

Studio to studio recordings via Source Connect: If you are hiring a commercial studio to connect to Lili’s studio, you have the options of booking 1, 2 or 4 hour sessions.

If you trust Lili to record your project on her own, you do not need to book a time slot. She will simply record between scheduled time slots.


Delivery

Lili delivers voiceover narrations via hightail from her professional voiceover iso-booth in Los Angeles, CA. She may also record voiceovers from the studio of your choice.

Rates always include

  • Editing (you receive a clean file, ready for production);
  • Turnaround time is 4-72 hrs depending on project size (Lili always meets your deadline);
  • File delivery via hightail and email.

Payments

Payments are processed via a secure credit card invoicing system (Quickbooks), upon delivery of files. Deposits are required for new clients. Major credit cards accepted (Visa & MC). -No checks or 30, 60, 90 day terms accepted at the moment. Order .wav, .aif and .mp3 female voiceover narrations today!

The process

Most often, you’ll request a custom demo (audition) of your script, and/or quote. For access to a 2019 rate sheet, let me know:

  • Who the client/product is (I may have an exclusivity contract with a competitor);
  • Planned usage (i.e. regional TV, local radio, Internet, live event, etc.);
  • Duration of usage (1-3 months, 3-6 months, 6-months-1 year, 2 years, unlimited usage);
  • Whether you’d like to direct the session over Skype or Source Connect;
  • Your time zone.

You can also give me direction on tone, pacing and accent, if you like.

Next, if you’ve requested a custom demo, I will record a portion of your script and email it to you, along with the 2019 rate sheet. If the rates are in line with your budget and the demo is satisfactory, I will need your final version of your script (this is important to avoid unnecessary re-records) with any notes or directions you’d like me to keep in mind before I start recording. At this point, let me know the file format you prefer, such as .mp3, .wav or .aiff.

Please note that I require a 50% deposit before scheduling new clients. The balance is requested upon delivery of audio files.

You can have your project recorded in one of 3 ways:

  • Call into the studio to monitor & direct the session (this service includes editing);
  • A commercial studio records my voice by connecting to my studio via Source Connect. Note that this option is costlier since you will pay for the commercial studio on your end (be sure the commercial studio you are hiring uses Source Connect);
  • I record and edit on my own.

To book a recording time with me, click on a time slot below. Note that you do not need to book a time slot if you are not calling into my studio for the session since I will record during free time slots.

Call in to monitor and direct up to 30 minutes

Call in to monitor and direct up to 60 minutes

Source Connect up to 1 hour

Source Connect up to 2 hours

Source Connect up to 4 hours

Next, I edit the sound file to remove any mistakes, clean up any microphone clicks, and remove breaths, when required. (This editing process may take up to two or three times as long as the recording process itself.)

I then email you an invoice, which includes a link to the audio files via hightail.com. This makes it easy for you to download large files to your computer quickly, and review my work.

The 2019 rate sheet generally includes a free minor round of revisions for small changes you might like to make after the initial recording is complete within 10 business days from the date of delivery – perhaps altering the way a word is pronounced or emphasized. For extensive changes, and particularly if you decide to rewrite the script or make substantial additions, there are additional fees.

I accept payments online by credit card, via the secure accounting system I use for invoicing. No check accepted.

Payments are requested upon delivery of audio files. No terms accepted (30, 60, 90 days). I require a 50% deposit before scheduling new clients. The balance is requested upon delivery of audio files.
