Consultations

We can either talk you through it, we can visit you, you can bring your equipment to us, or we can remotely log into your home studio computer. No more guesswork.

Marketing

While our Marketing Classes cover detailed information from strategy and contacts, to invoicing and gaining long-term clients, sometimes you need information specific to your situation. That is why you may prefer a Private Marketing Consultation. Speak privately with a Marketing Professional to create a customized, detailed plan to obtain work or ask any question - Edge Studio is known for straightforward answers that are based upon you.

Business & Money

Many voice actors tell us they LOVE voice-over, but dislike the business-side of things. For you, we're here to make life easier. Our team includes experts who help you set-up databases, invoice clients more efficiently, even deal with international payments. Let us know what's on your mind - and we'll match you with an expert who can help.

Pro Demo Services

Why do so many pro voice actors rely on our team of directors to mentor them on their demos? Because most voice actors aren't 100% able to hear their demo through the ears of a casting professional. So we are their bridge. We cast and hire talent every day. We consult pros on their demos every day. So if you want our ears and ideas, let us know.

Demo Updating

Even the best voiceover demo has a shelf life, and if yours is getting stale then chances are it’s time for some updating. Bring yours in for some subtle reworking, or even a complete overhaul to be sure that your work is up to date, still represents your voice, and is relevant in today’s market.

Demo Editing & Mixing

You’ve done the voice over work, we’ll make it into a demo. Send us your recordings, and we'll professionally mix them with music and sound effects, we'll edit and remove mouth clicks and breaths, we'll process your files with EQ and compression, and we'll sequence it into an industry standard, professional voice over demo.

Demo Recording

Voice over demos that target voice over genres (audiobook, documentary, political, video game, corporate video, medical...) attract clients who cast that genre. This is why so many pro voice actors have genre-specific demos. To expand your client list, train and/or record a demo with an industry expert in various genres.

Checkup Sessions

Auditioning for a new client? Testing new equipment? Trying out a new style? Then let a director or engineer provide written feedback on your recording, for $27. A second opinion from someone experienced in your style recording often pinpoints things you may have missed. This is more than insurance ... it is the greatest ROI.
