FAQ / How do I prepare a voice-over project?

The whole project must be estimated in time or number of words.

Time

A simple and efficent way to estimate the duration of your project is to time yourself reading the text aloud. Make sure to respect the different intentions you would like to have in the recording.

l’enregistrement de la voix.

Word count

Another solution is the very simple rule:

-60 seconds = 170 words

This estimation is an average and can vary depending on the desired speed of the voice (slow/fast) and other intentions.

What type of voice for my project?

Age and style of voice

Depending on the target audience or of the character in the text, we have to define the age and style of the voice. For example, you might favour a female voice if you are trying to sell beauty products – it is important to think about who you are addressing. After the initial choice – male or female – we can go further and consider whether the actress should have a deep, medium or high-pitched voice.

Narrative and dramatic voice-over

Certain actors specialise in dramatic voice-over and others in narration. We will put together your casting dependant on the requirements of your project. Please specify whether you require a narrative or dramatic voice-over.

Examples:

Example of dramatic voice-over:

Example of narrative voice-over:

Vocal intention

Voices used in a casting will not be the same for a punchy radio advert and a sweet, reassuring TV commercial. The intent of the text will greatly influence the choice of actors we present in the casting.

Annotations

We advise you to annotate your text to convey the different intentions you would like to hear and to underline the important words. Annotations of this kind guide the actor and obtain quality results. You can also give general indications for the way in which you want the text to be acted as a whole (serious, happy, dynamic…)

Pronunciation

For complicated words and abbreviations, it is easier to rewrite the words phonetically alongside the text to ensure that the actor pronounces them correctly.

Role repartition

If there is only one role in the text this does not apply. However, if your script is written for several roles, please ensure you label each line with the character name.

Translation

If you are planning on doing one or more foreign language versions, be attentive to the timing of translations! Difficulties often arise from differences in timing between two languages, for example between English and German. If you are able to, ask for an adaptation as well as the translation. This will help reduce discrepancies in timing between languages and save time in editing.

Text format

You can send your text in the following versions: Excel, Word, Txt, PDF. If you have a storyboard it is worthwhile adding a separate document containing the full text to facilitate the actor’s reading.

∴ If you do not feel capable of writing your text yourself, it might be worthwhile enlisting the services of a writer. Do not hesitate to contact us to find out more

MUSICAL POST-PRODUCTION AND SOUND DESIGN

For musical composition, mixing and sound design, we work with professional composers and sound-designers to find the best and most creative concept for your project. From 1985, we have worked on thousands of soundtracks for our clients.

WHAT IS YOUR BRAND’S SOUND?

post-production11Sound and music are everywhere now: in mobile phones, on the web, TV, radio, in shops, at interactive machines… have you asked yourself the question “what is my brand’s sound?” Your brand’s sound could be simply musical, or coupled with a voice or sound effects! It is the quickest emotional link between a brand and its consumers.

Sound is powerful. It affects our mood, and can change perceptions. It can be poignant, dramatic or comic. Sound offers a palette of infinite possibilities which makes it a very efficient marketing tool. Your own recognisable sound can help consumers easily remember your brand. Likewise, in a TV commercial the choice of music can influence product positioning and underline the message of your campaign. It is an important part of sound post-production!
