I am looking for an audio editor. I am looking or hire primarily to edit audio for an audio book I've started but hope to turn this into a long-term working relationship.
I am a full-time Voice Over actor and I do audiobook narration as well as e-learning and commercials etc. Up to this point I have been editing my work as well. However, I would like to focus primarily on recording and have a freelancer do some of my editing.
What I think I am looking for at this time (please provide a quote based on these services- pfh/pfm/min):
-Someone to proof, edit for pace, and remove unwanted breaths or clicks etc. (If audiobook, use ACX requirements for title placement, chapter announcements etc.)
-Note any pickups that are needed
-Deliver back to me in wav form (or ProTools ptx.) so I can do the final pass, fx, labeling, upload etc
Eventually I would love to just hand over the audio and then have it come back ready to go, but for now, I think this is the next step I need to take. (especially because I have completely finished about 3 chapters of the above-mentioned book and I want everything to match)
Please provide and additional quote if your rates will change from the services I am looking for now vs. what I want eventually.
What I have and how I do it!
-I use Pro Tools primarily.
-I do not do punch n roll- although I do stop and start so the clip breaks are right where a pickup or punch happens, so its easy to see where an edit needs to happen. (not sure if this makes sense- we may have to discuss)
Please provide samples of your work. If you have any additional questions do not hesitate to ask.
