--VOICE DEMO QUESTIONS--
What is your previous voiceover experience, if any? (If you have no previous experience, we suggest that you consider taking advantage of our voiceover lessons before attempting to record a demo. Though, if you're confident in your abilities, it may not be necessary.)

What is it that you plan to do with your demo?

Are you adept at any accents? If so, please list the ones you hope to include on the demo.

Do you have any stock characters (characters that you are normally cast as or ones that you really enjoy doing)? If so, please list them and give a general description, if it isn't obvious in its title.

For some character voices or accents, we may need to make up your copy as we go along. Are you comfortable with improvising or assisting in making up text?

Do you have any prepared pieces, monologues, bits of text that you'd really like to include? If yes, please list/describe them.

Do you have any previously recorded bits that you'd like to include in the demo?

Will you be needing a second voice in any of the spots on your demo?

Do you expect to finish in the allotted 2-hour recording time, or do you foresee needing an extended session?

What date(s) do you have available to do the recording? (As a precaution, we suggest that you allot an extra hour in your schedule, in case the recording runs over time.)

What is your preferred method of payment: cash, certified check, money order or PayPal invoice? (Payment is required upon receipt of the first mix. If desired, payment can be given on the day of recording. No refunds.)

--NON-DEMO RECORDING QUESTIONS--
What type of recording would you like to have produced?

Do you plan on any singing? If so, do you have prerecorded accompaniment digitally available (on CD or on your computer)? (Jotz Demos will not provide accompaniment.)

Space in the studio is limited, but there is room to record an electric or acoustic guitar or a smaller wind instrument. Do you plan on recording with any of these? If so, what type?

How much studio time do you expect you'll need? Will you need multiple days? (Even if booked, you only pay for the studio time that you use. We charge for no less than half an hour.)

What date(s) do you have available to record?

An in-house engineer will be provided for the recording. Will you need any post-work done (editing, mixing, mastering, etc.), or will post be handled elsewhere?

What is your preferred method of payment: cash, certified check, money order or PayPal invoice? (Payment is required upon receipt of the first mix. If desired, payment can be given on the day of recording. No refunds.)

--DEMO RECUTTING QUESTIONS--
How long ago was the demo produced?

Jotz Studios can only work with CDs or files digitally available on computer. Is your current demo "digitally accessible"?

How long is the current demo?

How long do you expect the recut demo to be? (Though professional opinion will be offered as to how the demo will best be recut, you retain full control as to the final product.)

If the demo contains snippets, you do have the full spots recorded to allow for recutting?

Would you like to be present for the recutting process?

What is your preferred method of payment: cash, certified check, money order or PayPal invoice? (Payment is required upon receipt of the first mix. No refunds.)

 

We'll also answer any questions you might have about the availability of other services not listed on the site.
