Voice over work is more abundant than you might have previously thought... and more of it's coming online.
We're being approached by much larger organizations to handle an every increasingly complex scope of work.
Learn more about managed projects and what this means for you at Voices.com now in today's VOX Daily.
When companies come to us with their projects, generally they manage them on their own with assistance from our staff if required, however, what we've found in recent months is that some clients have more complicated needs requiring personalized assistance from a dedicated project manager.
à¹ Full cast of characters for cartoons, video games and audiobooks
à¹ A global enterprise redoing their telephone system recordings with 20,000 voice prompts and 25,000 names for a voice mail system
à¹ Corporate training requiring several voices for hundreds of eLearning modules
à¹ National radio station network consolidating ad creation
à¹ News media company in need of daily headlines recorded and delivered according to the 24 hour news schedule
As you can see, we're also setting our sights on those larger projects that need the full attention of a qualified staff member to handle.
The project manager carefully plans and organizes tasks to accomplish a specific, one-time objective - in this case, the completion of a voice-over job.
Responsibilities of the project manager include:
à¹ Posting job on behalf of client
à¹ Outlining specifics for talent
à¹ Receiving auditions
à¹ Evaluating responses
à¹ Voice casting
à¹ File delivery
à¹ Paying talent on a regular payment schedule
Starting today, you'll begin to see job postings with the following statement attached in the script and/or work description:
"This is a Voices.com Managed Project. A member of the Voices.com staff has been assigned as the dedicated project manager for this client and will be responsible for reviewing responses, selecting the best candidates as directed by the client, arranging for file delivery and payment."
Auditioning and completing work at Voices.com will be as easy for you as the talent as it's ever been.
If you have a question about Managed Projects, please ask us by sending a question to firstname.lastname@example.org or by leaving a comment below.
Thanks and we look forward to working with you.
