Sound design, ADR, voice over and audio "sweetening" sessions are generally billed on a session or day rate basis, which includes set-up, recording, editing and mixing. Additional fees may be charged for voice talent or session singers/musicians, travel and work outside our studio to our audio/video post partner's facilities and equipment rentals. Music composition, music supervision and jingles are done on a project basis.
