Voice-Over Demo Reels

HOW IT WORKS

Scripts

Choose from current scripts and/or have us write copy based on your specific needs. Using current scripts is key! No one wants a commercial demo with a brand that no longer exists, or a promo demo featuring a TV show that got killed last year.

Direction

You will be handed a packet of current scripts and we will give you specific directions on how to read them. We will give you some time to practice before the actual recording session. Guiding and coaching sessions are always available in person or via Skype when and if necessary.

Recording

Once you've practiced the scripts we gave you, we will schedule a recording session. You have the option to do it in our beautiful studio, or remote using one of our remote patching services. We always record more than we need, and only keep the scripts we like best.

Post Production

Audio production is our thing! In addition to getting some of the best directors in the business, we teamed up with the best sound designers and sound mixers to make your demo sound like the real deal. We have endless amounts of music and sound design to choose from... Literally.

Agent

If you don't have an agent, we will help you find one. If you already have an agent, we will work with him throughout the entire process. Your agent will use your voice-over demo reel to promote you and your talent. It is important to keep him involved and get his final approval.

Marketing

What you do with your demo is up to you. A voice-over demo reel is an investment. We will share clever ideas on how to use efficiently. Also, don't forget our special package: a demo & a website! The best sound designers and graphic designers have teamed up to make you sound and look good!

In this package, we offer consulting advice from beginning to end. However, you are in charge. You provide your own scripts and record yourself. Once we get the tracks, we'll add custom music and sound design. We provide a full stereo mix in WAV and mp3 formats. Splits are available upon request.

Full – $1,800

We take care of everything, all you need to provide is your talent! We will write scripts for you based on your needs. After a short time of practising, we will record you and decide which spots to produce. We will add custom music and sound design and deliver a full stereo mix in WAV and mp3 formats. Splits are available upon request.

With Picture – $2,000

Voice-over work isn't just for radio. Have you thought of television? Get your voice on a hot TV commercial or a network promo. The procedure is similar, we just add a visual component to attract a broader network of potential clients.

Demo & Website – $2,600

A voice-over demo without proper marketing is useless. Get your demo produced and your website designed, all from the same group of people who want you to succeed. No third-party involved, producing your demo and designing the tools you'll need to promote yourself is all done in-house by experienced and talented professionals.

LISTEN TO OUR WORK

Most people have a good enough voice to do commercials, BUT...

The fact is, you need more skills than just a great voice to make it in a career as a professional voice talent. Acting ability is paramount, as is your reading skills, personality, communication skills, ability to take direction, and control your vocal range. So, the first thing to do is to get an acting class. Once you're comfortable with speaking behind a microphone, get your demo reel and look for an agent.

Again, a great or unique voice is only part of the battle.
You should have a separate demo for each format of voice-over. Each demo should be a minute to 90 seconds in length. There should be 8-10 small segments of commercials tightly edited together. Decide for yourself what you'd like to do before you start. Those are the various formats available:

– Commercials
– Promo
– Trailers
– Animation
– Narration
– Radio & AC (Adult Contemporary)
– Political & PA's
In this case, I encourage you and your agent to book a live session to make sure the recording is exactly how he wants it. Picking up parts of a recording can end up sounding patchy, so lets get it right the first time! If you need to re-record, you can always do so at a discounted rate.
Yes! We work with many voice-over agencies and can put you in touch directly with voice-over agents. In addition to being represented by an agency, you may also decide to list yourself online. It's a lot of work and requires a constant presence with lots and lots of auditions! Here are a handful of sites to consider, should you decide to go that route:

The Great Voice Company
Voice Talent
Voices
Realtime Casting
Voices 123
Voice Casting Hub
Voice Bunny
Voice Jungle
Yes, we can provide the copy for you or you may come with your own.
We always deliver final mixes in mp3 and WAV formats. We use standard audio specs. Other specific formats and requirements can be delivered upon request. Splits of final spots are also available for an additional fee.
Yes, one minor round of revisions is included in the rate. If bigger changes are needed, a minor fee may be requested.
Our typical turnaround is usually 1 to 2 weeks depending on current workload and project specs. That said, we always try our best to deliver as soon as we possibly can. There's no need to let projects linger for any length of time.
That's a good question. Producing a demo reel when you're not ready is just wasting your money. We can put you in touch with various agents and directors that will give you their fair opinion. Those are completely unbiased people with lots and lots of experience in voice-over. They can tell you if you're ready, and ways to improve if you're not.
Absolutely! There are 6 audio samples on this page. If you're looking for something more specific, simply ask and you shall receive.
Well, that's easy! If you like everything you've read and heard on this page, call 661 312 1038 or email laurent@migratesound.com. We'll have a brief conversation over the phone and schedule a day for production.
