Internetjock Phone Listen In Session Policy
If you’d like to do a Listen In Session with one of our Internetjocks, you can! Here’s how it works. If you have any questions about this policy please ask for clarification in order to prevent misunderstandings. A Listen In Session is the standard cost of the copy as written based on the current rate card, plus the cost of the Listen In Session (copy rate card cost + Listen In Session cost). Character voices, kids and translations are additional. Call us for rates.
What is the Listen In cost?
Listen in Sessions costs are $50.00 for up to 30 minutes of Listen In time per project. The Internetjock will be glad to read each project up to 3 times. If you exceed 3 takes per session you will be billed by the minute for each additional take. Additional Listen In time is $50.00 Per 30 minutes, (billed in 1/2 hour increments).
A 30 second commercial Voice Over is the rate card cost, plus Listen In cost. Same for narrations (over 60 seconds); rate card + Listen in Session cost. If you have more than one spot (commercials only) per session, the additional cost is 50% of the normal listen in rate ($25.00 for each additional spot)
What about editing?
Under normal circumstances we deliver the entire session unedited for you to edit as you see fit. If you require additional (separate) files or want your files cleaned up and edited we charge an additional $50 per hour. There is a One Hour Minimum.
If there are changes after the session is over additional charges will apply.
Again, to prevent misunderstandings, if you have any questions or need clarification, please contact us. Thanks for choosing Internetjock!
