RETAKES, REVISIONS, & AI POLICIES

Retakes and Revisions:

Retakes (my mistakes) are included at no cost. 

Revisions (changes made to the script after recording):

  • Minor Revisions (one or two words): $50

  • Major Revisions (more than two words): $100 minimum

  • Re-Reads => 35% of the original script: $150 fee

  • Re-Reads => 50% of the original script: Original rate

Retakes regarding pronunciation preferences that are not specified either by guide or otherwise in writing will be treated as Revisions and are billable. Examples: “ee-ther” vs. “eye-ther,” “off-ten” vs. “off-en,” “oh” vs. “zero,” "Mo-bull" vs. "Mo-bile."

When sending a change request, please highlight the lines in the original script or list the full sentence to be re-recorded, the sentence before, and the sentence after so I know what I’m talking about. If applicable, please include the time index of the video so I can better match tone and pace.

Performance Retakes (for undirected sessions):

I’m happy to do one round of Performance Retakes at no cost for performance reasons. This will be specified in the contract before recording takes place. Please try to communicate any and all direction and/or change of direction at this time. After the first round of retakes, subsequent rounds are charged as Revisions, above. 

 

Pickups do not “expire.”  Unless otherwise stated, if pickups become necessary, they are provided in accordance with the agreed terms, even if a project has been paid in full.
