Voice Actors Move Online Helping Businesses Cut Production Costs
Crowd sourcing websites such as The Voice Realm are helping business save time and money by presenting them with options to cut out agents and expensive ad agencies, and then working directly with the voice artists. The site this week broke a record with over 150 bookings made in one month, a figure that is expected to continue to grow through 2013. All recordings were completed in professional home studios.
New York, NY (PRWEB) December 07, 2012
Throughout the 90´s the term ℠telecommuting´ gained popularity, as businesses allowed employees to begin to work from home and remote locations, in order to achieve a better lifestyle and to retain talent by offering flexibility and other benefits, including saving money.
The shift for industries to move online continues, especially in media production, with more and more voice actors each week looking to increase their online presence and find new voice over clients that are searching for other avenues to source their talent.
Experienced voice actors are enjoying the ability to work from home in studios that offer the same sound as those that charge hundreds of dollars per hour just for the studio and engineer.
Allowing voice seekers and voice talent the opportunity to work together online through an intuitive and straightforward system has proven popular not just in North America, but also in Europe where the site has just launched a local presence in the United Kingdom.
Marketing Manager for The Voice Realm, Robert James says that having voice artists´ work online has allowed clients administrative and production costs to be almost halved and a better final result. “The quality of the finished recording clients receive is far superior, as they are able to have a closer working relationship with the actor. If they need something tweaked or adjusted, or another line recorded after the first session, they don´t need to go through the exhaustive process of booking studio time again, travelling to the recording location and dealing with voice over agents. The voice artists love the flexibility of being able to spend more time with their families and adjust their availability at their own accord.”
The site offers a clear voice over rate card which allows those looking to hire a voice artist to stay within budget and know all upfront costs.
The Voice Realm represents over 300 of the world´s best voice actors, with clients able to find exactly what they are looking for through an advanced search option, making the casting process as simple as a few mouse clicks.
