Work with British voiceover experts

It’s simple: you can book one of us or both.

We are full-time British voiceovers with more than 30 years combined experience. It’s what we do – all day, every day – so you won’t struggle to reach us.

We’re happy to attend the studio of your choice, but most of our v/o work is recorded and edited in our own broadcast quality studio. There’s no extra charge – it’s included in your voice fee.

We often get a brief by mail or phone and we self-direct. . We can also hook up to you for sessions by ISDN, Source Connect, Skype or plain old telephone. Send us a rough edit or your final cut if it would be helpful. We can synch to picture if you need.

Many clients like to team us up for tricky two-handers. Being real life husband and wife makes for good chemistry and no painful editing for you.

We provide our voiceover services worldwide; it doesn’t matter where you are, there’s always a simple way to work with us.

“We listen to you and we get things done.”

How we roll

1

It starts with a phone call or email. Tell us about your project.

You might want a custom audition from your text. That’s fine. There’s no charge.

2

We work out a fee that’s all inclusive.

There are no extras for studio time, editing or sushi.

A chat about style, pace, emphasis, pronunciations and so on.

Once we’re on the same page, we record your v/o here, carefully edit and master it, even synch it to your pictures, then deliver by FTP or email.

4

You get a broadcast quality file that’s free from coughs, goofs, or words your Gran wouldn’t like!

Need fixes? Don’t worry, they’re included.

FAQs

How Soon?

We take great pride in fast service.  We know that your voiceover is often the last piece of your creative puzzle, so we are well used to impossible deadlines. Commercials and promos are almost always done and delivered the same day. Sometimes within minutes.

As for narration, that can sometimes be same day too.  It depends on the length of copy, the time it reaches us and our workload on the day.  E-learning epics take a little longer. But we always keep in touch and keep our promises.

If it’s possible to pre-plan, then please drop us a note a few days ahead:

“I’ll need a voiceover next Friday.  Will send you the copy at 10-00 – can I get it it back by lunch?”

Get the picture?

 

How much do you charge?

Our fees are normally based on standard British Equity rates.  UK voiceovers often voice commercials at so-called “station rates” – and we’re happy to do so. Generally our rates are in the middle of the industry average.

 

How do I pay?

Most often, you won’t see a bill for your voiceover work until our part of the job is complete and you’re completely happy. In the UK we accept payment by all the usual methods and for international clients we are happy to accept bank transfers or payment via PayPal to studio@thurstonday.co.uk

 

But I only need a few lines…

Perhaps you need just a couple of voiceover lines on a presenter driven video. Normally that could get a little expensive. But we take a flexible approach and charge short scripts on pro-rata basis.

 

You said a word wrong…

Every v/o is carefully checked before it leave here, but in the event of an error you can expect fixes fast and free. We’re not happy until you are, so if the style, pace, tone of voice or emphasis is off track in anyway, then we need to know. We’d much rather give you a completely new take than compromise your vision.

 

Where are you based?

We are based in Bromsgrove, Worcestershire, UK.  We’re often happy to travel to the studio of your choice. We send our voiceover work all over the world.

 

Know any Mandarin Chinese voiceovers?

Actually, we do.  And French, German, Italian, Dutch, Finnish, Swedish, Danish and more. Over the years we’ve built up lots of contacts with quite a number non-English language voiceovers. So if your script needs re-versioning there are a number ways we can help.

 

Know any other UK voiceovers?

Sure!  We’re versatile performers but there are times when our clients need something different.  Maybe a particular accent or age range.  We have a fat contact file of UK voiceovers, so if we can’t help, chance are we’ll know someone who can.

 

Do you do live events?

Yes!  We’re both skilled at “Voice of God” announcing and have provided voiceovers for many live events in the UK including award ceremonies, conferences and gala dinners.  Most often these are pre-recorded but we are also happy to attend the venue of your choice.

 

Do you narrate audio books?

Books are about the only application we don’t do.  However we do supply our voiceover work for commercials,  trailers, promos, corporate presentations, explainer videos, apps, animatics, e-learning, event announcing, conferences, telephone, IVR and on-hold, computer games, apps, podcasts and much more.  Need a UK voiceover? You’re in the right place!

 

How long have you been working together?

We did our first voiceovers together in 2006 and we’ve worked as a team every day since.

Auditions are fast and free.
Just send copy.

From big brands to one-man-bands, we’re agreeable and accessible.
