The Process

Initial discussions will help James gain a thorough understanding of your project. Some commissions feature just a few paragraphs or sentences, and require little or only modest preparation. However, for a longer script, extra time will be required for James to read through and 'mark up' his copy of the text. We charge a small per-half-hour fee for such work.

James can record using Lundscapes' equipment - either on his own or with direction from you via telephone or Skype. Sadly, we cannot accommodate guests in our own edit suite / voice-over area

If you have the necessary recording equipment or wish James to attend a different studio or location, he is happy to to travel. If the venue is over 25 miles from Bedford, UK, there may be an extra charge for transport costs

If James is working without realtime client direction, he will require advance information regarding, for example, tricky or unusual pronunciations! Local or foreign words, together with specific technical terms relevant to the commission, will need to be discussed too. Please note: re-recording will require an extra charge.

The completed work - either finished edited clips or the raw recordings - can be supplied via email or Dropbox (usually mp3 or WAV format) or by post (CD or USB stick)

Copyright in all finished recordings will rest with you.

Client confidentiality is very important to us. Your request may be for James to voice an internal company video - possibly containing sensitive information. James / Lundscapes will never divulge such confidential details to a third party without your permission.

Past clients have praised James' flexibility, ability to keep things simple, his professionalism, helpful nature, calmness and, of course, his voice!




Fees

Each commission is different and unique. We will price to your requirements, being honest and realistic, based on the information that you provide. Our no obligation quote will also depend on whether James uses Lundscapes' equipment or not, and how much preparation time is required.

Whether a very small job or an extensive commission, do get in touch as soon as possible, as James's diary does fill up quickly!
