Hire Lili Wexu Today!

Voice Over Rates

To hire Lili and get access to the 2019 voice over rates (in USD), she will need to know:

  • Who the client/product is (to assess potential exclusivity conflicts);
  • Where the production will be used;
  • For how long;
  • Whether the voice over should be synched to images or fit within specific timings;
  • How you would like the recording to unfold (is Lili recording on her own, are you calling in, are you recording remotely via Source Connect or would you like to have Lili travel to a studio of your choice in Los Angeles).

If the voice over rates are in line with your budget, you may schedule a recording session by asking to book an available time on her calendar.

Scheduling Lili

Call into the studio to monitor/direct a session:

When you hire Lili to record scripts of 750 words or less, you have the option of calling her in the recording studio to monitor or direct her while she records your narrations. If this is your preferred method of working, simply email Lili and ask her for her bookings calendar.

  • For narrations of 750 words or less, booking a 30 minute slot is usually sufficient.
  • For commercials, or if you simply prefer more time to record, feel free to schedule a one hour slot.

Let Lili record on her own:

If you trust Lili to record your project on her own from her professional home studio (iso-booth) in Los Angeles, CA, you will be asked to book time slots according to the length of your script.

  • Scripts between 1 and 750 words are usually delivered within 24 hours
  • Scripts between 750 and 1500 words are usually delivered in 2 business day
  • Scripts between 1500 and 3000 words are usually delivered in 3 business days
  • Scripts between 3000 and 6000 words are usually delivered in 4-5 business days

Recording remotely via Source Connect:

For more control over the recording process, you may hire a commercial studio to record Lili remotely. They will handle the microphone feed from her home studio, and she will sound as though she is in the commercial studio in person. Note that you will have to cover fees charged by the commercial studio. Should this be your preferred method of recording, you may book her for the following durations:

  • 1 hour Source Connect session
  • 2 hour Source Connect session
  • 3 hour Source Connect session
  • 4 hour Source Connect session

Local Los Angeles studio:

You can hire Lili to show up in person at your favorite local Los Angeles studio. Note that you will have to cover fees charged by the commercial studio. Should this be your preferred method of recording, you may book her for the following durations:

  • 1 hour local LA studio
  • 2 hour local LA studio
  • 3 hour local LA studio
  • 4 hour local LA studio

Turnaround Times

When calling into the studio (750 words or less)

If you hire Lili to record your voiceover narrations from her professional voiceover iso-booth studio, and listen in to monitor or direct her during the session, she will deliver your files via a file transfer service like Hightail as soon as she has finished editing your files. Turnaround may take from 30 minutes to 120 minutes after your scheduled recording, depending on the length of the narration.

Please give yourself some leeway in the event a narration is taking longer to edit. Bumps on the road may occur and we should all schedule some breathing room for unforeseen circumstances (think power outages, helicopters landing on her roof, etc.) We are kidding about the helicopter, but loud continuous noises can halt production from time to time (rarely, but not impossible).

If your recording is handled by a commercial studio, they will provide you with the edited files.

When Lili records on her own

Narrations of 750 words or less:
As a general rule (barring travel or film work), small orders that come through before 2pm ET (11am PT) can be delivered the same day, or the following day depending on your time zone (she is in Pacific Time).

Narrations over 750 words:
-Between 750 and 1500 words, please allow 2 full business days. For example, if you send the order on a Monday before 11am PST (2pm EST), you will receive it by end of day (PST) Wednesday.
-Between 1500 and 3000 words, please allow 3 full business days. For example, if you send the order on a Monday before 11am PST (2pm EST), you will receive it by end of day (PST) Thursday.
-Between 3000 and 6000 words, please allow 4-5 full business days. For example, if you send the order on a Monday before 11am PST (2pm EST), you will receive it by end of day (PST) the following Monday.

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.

The Process or hiring female voice over actor Lili Wexu

Here are the steps you will take to hire Lili and get voice over rates. Soon, you will have to decide which way to record your voice over narration, commercial or voicemail. The hiring process is an easy one that can unfold rather quickly, especially if your script is final and ready to be recorded.

Most often, you’ll request a custom demo (audition) of your script, and/or quote. Custom demos are free of charge. If you are requesting a demo of your scripts, please give me direction on tone, pacing and accent.

For access to the 2019 voice over rates, 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 the narration should be synched to an existing video, or fit within specific timings;
  • Whether you’d like me to record on my own, to direct the session over Skype or Source Connect, or if you would like me to perform the recording in person at a local Los Angeles Studio of your choice;
  • Your time zone.

If you’ve requested a custom demo, I will record a portion of your script and email it to you, along with the 2019 voice over rates. Please pay special attention to the various sections on the rate sheet, as well as the usage.

Below the voice over rate sheet, you will find a complete list of Guidelines. Please read them carefully, as they contain information about ways to figure out rates, the policy on revisions, etc. Being aware of the guidelines creates a smooth workflow and helps to handle any bumps on the road!

If the voice over rates are in line with your budget and the demo is satisfactory, I will need:

  • The final version of your script (this is important to avoid unnecessary re-records). Your script should clearly indicate the way you would like me to separate and label the various sections of your scripts (with file names).
  • 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.

Before moving forward please note the following:

NEW CLIENTS: I require a 50% deposit before scheduling or processing orders. The balance is requested upon delivery of audio files.

ALL CLIENTS: If you have a PO number you would like me to add to my invoice, please provide it at the same time you send me your final scripts. Note that I will not deliver voice overs until I have a PO number, as waiting and searching for PO numbers slows down production considerably, which impacts all clients turnaround times.

You can have your project recorded in one of 4 ways:

  • For short scripts (750 words or less), you can call into the studio to monitor/direct the session (this service also includes editing);
  • I record and edit on my own;
  • 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. If you choose this option, be sure the commercial studio you are hiring uses Source Connect;
  • I can show up at a local Los Angeles studio of your choice. Again, this option is costlier since you will pay for the commercial studio on your end.

Due to spamming issues, the bookings calendar is no longer available on this site. To book a recording time with me, simply send me an email and I will send you a link to my bookings calendar asap.

If I have recorded the project from my home studio, I will edit the sound files (remove any mistakes, attenuate breaths where necessary, remove noises, etc.) and label files according to the instructions in your script. This editing process may take up to two or three times as long as the recording process itself.

If you have hired a commercial studio to handle the recording, that studio will provide you with the edited files.

Once the files are edited, I will email you an invoice (featuring any PO# you have provided), along with a W9 form if requested.

The invoice will include a link to your audio files via hightail.com. This will make it easy for you to download large files to your computer quickly, and review my work.

I accept payments online by credit card, via the secure accounting system I use for invoicing (Quickbooks in the United States, and e-transfer or direct deposit in Canada). No checks or terms are accepted.

Payments are requested upon delivery of audio files. No terms accepted (30, 60, 90 days).

NEW CLIENTS: I require a 50% deposit before scheduling or processing orders for new clients. The balance is requested upon delivery of audio files.

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, or making a small change to a sentence or two.

For extensive changes, and particularly if you decide to rewrite the script or make substantial additions, there are additional fees. The Guidelines below the rate sheet indicate how more extensive revisions are handled.
