VOICEOVER FAQ

Whether you're new to this as an employer or talent, find answers here to get you started.

ARE YOU AN EMPLOYER LOOKING TO BOOK ONE OF OUR T&C PERFORMERS?

ARE YOUR VOICE TALENT PROFESSIONALS?

Definitely so.  The talented performers of T&C have hundreds of years of combined professional experience with resumes including almost every known product and service, promotional announcements and narrations for most networks and even a political campaign or two.

 

DO T&C TALENT PROVIDE AUDITIONS?

Of course!  If you have a script, a description of the type of talent(s) needed and a budget for the project…  email the audition to us and we will get right to work casting your project.

HOW QUICKLY CAN I RECEIVE AUDITIONS?

The same day if need be or the following day.  The exception is specialty voice-overs such as older voices, foreign languages etc. in which we may need a few days.

DO YOUR TALENT HAVE HOME STUDIOS?

With rare exceptions, T&C performers all have professional home studios.  Many have ISDN or Source Connect as well and everyone else who does not can easily phone patch and upload files to FTP, Dropbox or similar.

HOW DO I HIRE A T&C PRO TALENT?

If you have already been provided a T&C audition, just let us know who you like and whether any details have changed since we provided the audition.  We will then coordinate any remaining logistics (schedule, phone numbers, email, etc).  If you are hiring a talent without an audition, call or email us and request exactly who you are looking for as well as your budget.  We will get right back to you and coordinate any schedules and details.

 

CAN I DIRECT T&C TALENT?

Absolutely.  Whether you want to provide initial instructions before the session and leave the rest to the talent or stay on the line the entire session, you have either option.

 

WHAT ARE T&C RATES?

T&C does not necessarily set the rates.  The talent does.  That is why encourage you to audition talent and provide the budget so we can cater the talent to your project.

HOW DO I PAY T&C PROFESSIONALS?

90% of the time a T&C invoice from the talent will suffice but the complete answer to this question is a little complicated because many of our performers are SAG/AFTRA members.  The most important thing to know is that T&C is well versed in how to make this easy for you and provide simple step-by-step instructions on how to make this work.

 

WHAT IF I’M NOT COMPLETELY SATISFIED WITH THE VOICE OVER?

T&C will do everything in our power to make sure you’re satisfied with your performer(s) and we encourage you to request a free audition for any performer(s) or types you may interested in.

 

IF YOU'RE A PERFORMER SEEKING TO JOIN T&C.

HOW DO I SUBMIT MY WORK FOR CONSIDERATION?

Using our submission page, send us the application and your .mp3 demos and a link to your website and we will get back to you if we are interested.

 

WHAT IF I SEND YOU MY VOICEOVER DEMO AND I DON’T HEAR FROM YOU?

Unfortunately, we can’t respond to everybody but we do appreciate you reaching out.  If you don’t hear from us, the reason is because we don’t feel you are right for our roster.  That shouldn’t discourage you though as we are working with elite talent who have put years into the voice craft.  Instead, we strongly encourage you to get VO coaching, continue to train and work on your demos. After all, we never know what the future brings.

 

WHERE ARE YOUR TALENT LOCATED?

The majority of talent reside in California, Oregon, Washington and Chicago with the remainder spread throughout US.  

 

I ALREADY HAVE A TALENT AGENT.  CAN I BE at T&C  TOO?

T&C is not an typicaL agency we call our model a talent group.  Our talent may be or are represented by other agencies in NYC, LA and elsewhere.

DO I NEED A HOME STUDIO TO BE a MEMBER of T&C?

Indeed you do.  T&C clients often receive frequent auditions throughout the day and must be able to both work and audition from home.

 

DO I NEED A LIVE STUDIO CONNECTION LIKE ISDN?

ISDN is not a necessity. Source Connect Now™ is becoming more and more an industry standard and you should have or be equipped to add Source Connect Now™ to your studio.
