Our rates vary based on the project and always include studio time for the estimated amount of time required to deliver your product. Please complete the quote form for a rate!
Our work has been heard on local and national radio ads, television commercials (most recently on MTV), Internationally in Canada, the UK, as well as other countries and mediums.
We estimate that every 4 out of 10 ads you’ve heard within the past three years that sound like Chris Rock are actually “Not Chris Rock”. The main way to tell is if the person doing the voiceover actually says they are Chris Rock. We would NEVER do that.
In the U.S., likeness rights can vary from state to state – but the gist is this: You cannot use a celebrity’s likeness (in this case a facsimile of their voice) with the intent to deceive the public into thinking the celebrity is providing their likeness for your commercial gain. In other words, using a “celebrity voice impersonated” disclaimer (either via on-screen text or audio tag) is a must.
You may choose to credit NCR as the voice impersonator, you may include a natural voice tag before or after the read, or have NCR adjust the voice so it’s “in a similar style to”, but not an impersonation.
No. NCR is an independent voice talent. The advantage of working with NCR as opposed to a union or SAG actor is the flexibility in rates being charged.
No. “Not Chris Rock” cannot identify himself as celebrity Chris Rock, nor does NCR endorse products or services unless specifically contracted to do so.
If you receive audio from us, based on a script you’ve sent us (or a script We’ve written and you’ve approved of) and something isn’t quite right, just let us know. Revisions or re-cuts due to an error or technical issue on our part are included in the cost of your order. Revisions due to script or copy changes on your end are a slightly different matter.
Absolutely! Each project is scheduled specifically to make sure it gets the attention it deserves!
Absolutely! Once your session has been scheduled, you will have the option of calling the studio engineer and listening in on the session to add creative input, critiques, or other things that will make your project a success.
No. NCR reserves the right to refuse or deny projects that are deemed inappropriate, or we feel do not do your project justice. If you have any questions, please contact us first for clarification before submitting a quote.
We accept bank transfers, Company Check (US only), Western Union and Paypal. We also accept for some US customers Greendot and Vanilla Reloads. If you are a California-based licensed recording studio we’ve done business with in the past, we will bill your account.
