Policy on Retakes, Revisions, and AI Usage

Retakes and Revisions:

  • Retakes, that are my mistakes, are provided at no additional cost.

  • Revisions (any script changes after recording):

  • Minor Revisions/Pickups (up to 10 words): $50

  • Major Revisions/Pickups (more than 10 words): Minimum charge of $75

  • Re-Reads: Charged at 33% of the original script's rate.

Performance Retakes (undirected sessions):

For sessions where I independently record the files in my studio and send them to you, the following guidelines apply:

  • One round of Retakes is provided at no cost for performance-related adjustments.

  • It's essential to communicate all directions or changes during this round.

  • Subsequent retakes will be treated as revisions and charged accordingly.

Pronunciation Preferences:

  • Pronunciation preferences not specified in advance are considered revisions and are subject to billing.

Change Requests:

  • When submitting change requests, please highlight the relevant lines in the original script or provide the full sentences to be re-recorded, along with the preceding and following sentences.

  • Include the time index of the video if applicable to match tone and pace.

Timelines:

  • All change requests should be submitted within 30 days of receiving the original recording. Requests beyond this period will be charged at the original rates.

New and International Clients (Outside the U.S.):

  • For NEW clients, U.S./International, are billed upfront unless alternative arrangements are agreed upon.

 

AI and Synthetic Voices Usage Policies:

 

  1.  Client expressly agrees not to utilize any portion of the Talent’s file, recording or performance of Talent for purposes other than those specified in the initial Agreement between the parties, including but not limited to creation of synthetic or “cloned” voices or for machine learning.
     

  2. Specifically, Client shall not utilize any recording or performance of Talent to simulate client’s voice or likeness, or to create any synthesized or “digital double” voice or likeness of Talent. 
     

  3. Client specifically agrees not to sell or transfer ownership to all or part of any of the original files recording the performance of Talent to any third party for purposes of using the files for Artificial Intelligence, such as text to speech, or speech to speech uses, without Talent’s knowledge and consent.
     

  4. Client agrees not to enter into any agreements or contracts on behalf of Talent which utilizes all or any part of any of the original files recording the performance of Talent for purposes of using the files for Artificial Intelligence, such as text to speech, or speech to speech uses, without Talent’s knowledge and consent.
     

   5. Client agrees to use good faith efforts to prevent any files of recordings or performances stored in digital format             containing Talent’s voice or likeness from unauthorized access by third parties, and if such files are stored in “the           cloud” Client agrees to utilize services that offer safeguards through encryption or other “up-to date” technological         means from unauthorized third party access.
