This is the life a voice talent.
When the limo picks me up, I tell the driver to turn off the music while I concentrate on vocal warmups. After being dropped off at the studio, I walk out with a check for, at minimum, $75K ten minutes later.
All I have to say is one sentence…which I am under an NDA not to divulge because it’s cutting-edge IP, and I am just the talent to voice it.
I get a couple of these projects a week, and hang up when I hear any number less than $75K per hour.
This is the lifestyle. Keeping my voice pristine so I could buy the Porsche, the Bentley and the Lamborghini.
That’s a load of garbage.
The VO life is not glamorous. I record mostly from home. Some weeks are busier than others. No one is paying me $100K for ten minutes of my time (I wouldn't object, though). And I don’t drive a fancy car.
What I do is take scripts my clients send me and give them what they ask for: an authentic, warm and relatable read.
Don't fall for lifestyle bragging.
