Services and Rates:

Whether its a simple voiceover recording, writing a script for a radio commercial, or production of a complex live show sound track, there are many variables associated with every sort of production. We’ll work closely with you to keep production costs within your budget. If you’re not sure of how to budget your project or what needs to be factored in, we’ll walk you through the process to help you come up with a realistic budget that will achieve your desired results.

Each project we produce requires a detailed analysis to determine the appropriate costs. Costs in some areas may be negotiable while other costs are fixed. The table below describes most of the services we provide. All rates are 1 hour minimum, prorated by 1/4 hour thereafter. Day rates and Package Blankets may result in substantial savings for most productions. CA sales tax applies to any materials associated with the production. Rates are subject to change without notice.

Always call us first if you have special requirements, a complex or on-going project, or if you have any questions. Our office line is 858.484.0220 M-F, 10am-5pm PT.
