Rate Sheet

Flying Sound works with your budget and needs. We have rates for everyone on deck and for a skeleton crew. You probably know which you need — please email us at booking@flyingsound.net

Details On Rates

This studio is designed for very well-prepared creatives. If you can follow your plan, have practiced a lot and/or have a really solid script and clear goals of what you want then you will wind up paying little. A facility like ours can get a lot of high-end work done in a short amount of time if your preproduction is good. If you don’t have a solid plan or if you are a musician who hasn’t practiced you could waste a lot of money. 

Combined home/studio projects work really well because (if prepared) one can pop in to the studio for an hour or two to bang out some drums or vocals with our room and fancy gear and then take it home to mix in the box

Standard rates which allow for corporate pay schedules (NET15, NET30, NET45)

On-screen dialog – $400/hr ($250/hr for Canadians and others with an unfavorable exchange rate)
Voiceover – $200/hr, 8hr day rate $1400
Musicians – $100/hr, 10hr day rate $800
Audiobooks – $100/hr + $100/project OR $300 per finished hour, your choice

There are session fees which can be avoided by paying on delivery: dialog – $custom, VO – $200

Musicians require a $50 deposit

Nonprofits and indie projects waive the session fee and must pay right away for the following rates:

Nonprofit VO rate (public media): $150 first hour, $100 subsequent hours
Local Musicians: $75/hr, 10hr day rate $600
Indie film-makers on-screen dialog: $100/hr
Self-published audiobooks: $100/hr tracking, $75/hr editing

We consider this work to be the time of a skilled engineer, not gear or room dependent so we do not charge extra for use of premium microphones like the Telefunken ELA M 251E. The fees reflect the preparation, clean-up, and delivery time which we believe is best expressed through a fee instead of additional hourly time.
