December 2022 Online Demo Sessions 2 December - Questions by Archana, Voice Artist, Lucknow(Video Link of Q&A-13)
How to approach to clients for work?
A1 - To apply for work the only method is to send your Studio Demo reel i.e. your voice samples showcasing your voice over skills & range. This industry doesn’t need your CV, Certificate or your talks. Your work should speak for you. The client will be only interested in listening to your voice samples.
Sometimes clients want to pay less for the work, so whether we should take that work or not?
A2 - You will get all types of clients in this industry. With peanuts, good budget, regular work or once in a while types. So It’s a very subjective question & its answer can vary from person to person. Sometimes less payment also means they are not looking for a very professional output. It also depends upon the work type. At the end its upto you to decide as per your expectations whether you want to do it or not as per your financial situation & your skill.
There are many types of vo pages on Facebook where they want vo artist. How to know whether they are genuine or not?
A3 - On such platforms or otherwise we can never get to know who is genuine or not. You can follow simple tips like never delivering the full work without a payment especially with someone you’re dealing for the first time or giving a sample recording only & then final recording after the payment. If your sample is approved no Client would have any problem in paying advance or 50%. Although the number of fraud people would be always less so you need to opt for a balanced approach. Check their profiles, past works, videos, websites etc. to get more idea about them.
How to make a proper home setup with no noise? Or if I reside in area where there is noise then how to record during daytime, because I'm free to record at that time.
A4 - For a Home Setup you need a Good mic, Laptop or PC & sound proofing as per your environment.
In a noisy area a Dynamic mic would be more effective than a condenser mic.
How to get paid? Should we ask the client to pay in advance or after completion of work?
A5 - It all depends upon the Client you’re dealing with. If it’s a reputed Studio or agency your payment is assured otherwise you need to be careful. For the clients you are dealing with regularly you won’t need to ask for Advance payments once an understanding is established, but exceptions are there. For first time clients you should never deliver the complete work without payment.
