Audio editing and Copywriting services

 

You are most valuable when you are recording, let us do the grunt work.

  • Provide your raw voice file and we will make it customer ready.

  • If you've already done some edits, we will finalize it for you.

  • Let us run a proof review and provide script markups for you to finalize.

    • This is particularly valuable in long form. When we get involved in a script, we can accidentally use words or phrasing that doesn't precisely match the author. Even when we listen back to our own audio we can miss the error because that is how we want it to sound. Having a second set of ears to review the script will help insure that the final recording is word perfect.​

Copy editing and proofing

  • You provide basic outlines or complete scripts and we will create a voice ready product.

  • If the author has given permission to improve the flow for voice we can edit the text without changing the author's intent.

    • Some written text is just awkward to read aloud. Our editors are skilled at smoothing the delivery for the voice without altering the meaning of the original.
      If you have a reluctant author we can provide a short sample of our work for them to consider free of charge.​

TESTIMONIALS

"Steve has a great approach to VO coaching. It goes beyond the traditional acting methods and standards. He also has a great ear for your reads to give feedback and also can see things in a script you may not and help you see them also.

 

I recommend him as both a VO coach and even someone to help you with an important audition!"

"During my time with him, Steve was incredibly knowledgeable about the craft of voice acting. He guided me by acknowledging my strengths and calling out my weaknesses.

 

He'd be an asset to anyone wanting to either learn some voice tricks or hone their tempered skills."
