I've wanted to get into some voice over work for a while and heard that the best thing you could do was have quality demos available for your profiles. With a little searching I came across Thumbtack and found Steve O'Neill. After getting in touch through the site I was able to come into his studio for a recording session. Everything went great! From his professional equipment to his experience in the industry, I felt like I found exactly what I needed to get a good start. Steve's been a great help for me, thanks!Dec 2, 2017

Q & A
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?All jobs are "Negotiable" and flexible project to project...budget to budget. We can email a customer our rate sheet at anytime that details pricing for everything. However "standard rates" for Video Production are $500.00/Half Day Shoot, $1,000/Full Day Shoot. Video Post-Production is $150.00 per hour. Audio Recording and Post-Production is $125.00 per hour. HOWEVER, again...everything is negotiable and we always try to work with our customers budgets!
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?FIRST: An initial meeting; get to know each other as well as the customers needs. Find out what goals and expectations they have for their audio or video project, and find out what their hoping to achieve with their project. Next we like to know how they plan to use their project; just personal use or television and/or radio advertising, internet or social media advertising/marketing, web ad's, website promotional videos, a wedding video...do they need DVD/CD distribution, etc., as well as what markets and deadline dates. Next we discuss their budget for their projects, and discuss what we can do to fit into their budget and what we can't. Then negotiate what we will do, and come up with a final fixed price or a comfortable flexible cost that the customer has agreed upon and approved. SECOND: Draw up the agreement/contract and have both parties sign and date. Receive "Down" Payment" on signing. THIRD: Another meeting to go over "Pre-Production" and "Creative Services"; Copy Writing (Radio), Script Writing (TV or Video), Talent Casting & Auditions, Location Scouting, Project Shoot or Recording Dates, Deadlines again, If Permits are needed, Shot lists, etc. FOURTH: Production Begins FIFTH: Setup a time for the customer to listen to or view their project(s). Have them listen or view, then either approve or make any revisions. SIXTH: Deliver final audio or video project to customer, receive final payment in full for services rendered on delivery. LASTLY: Ask the Customer for a "Review"
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?OJT for over 30+ years!
