Testimonials

  • As a Creative Director, I’m always looking out for excellent talent and David certainly falls in that category. Recently I was managing a project and needed some VO quickly. I used a crowd sourcing website for voice talent and received many submissions. David stood out above them all. From the :30 sample he sent, his professionalism was evident and he stood out as someone who I could tell, had fun with the project. From that point, he was so responsive and made quick work of the final tracks. I will definitely keep David on the top of my list for future projects.

  • We worked with David on a project called “Campus Life: The Movie” which was a parody trailer presenting a local Halifax, Nova Scotia university as if it was an Epic Film. We needed a perfect “movie trailer guy” type voice and David was that voice. He was prompt, professional and his talent was undeniable. Also when we needed a change to the initial read he was on it immediately and we had the new files before we knew it. David was a pleasure to work with and we wouldn’t hesitate to hire him again.

    ~ Mark Flindall, Digital Project Manager

  • Working with David is easier than spreading butter on toast—and his delivery is as smooth as said butter! Not only was the project coordination incredibly easy, but his turnaround time was much quicker than average. We were looking for a stellar Santa Claus, and David delivered more takes and more style than I asked for, ultimately resulting in an incredible final product our client was thrilled with. David is also a pleasure to communicate and work with through the entire process, and I look forward to working with him again, in the future.

  • For a recent project, I hired David Lambert for voiceover work. I’m always looking for talent that will bring validity and a sense of professionalism to my work. David hit the mark with ease. A national level talent! In addition to the seasoned skill that David offers behind the mic, he gave me an extremely fast turn around and was a pleasure to work with. I would highly recommend considering David Lambert for your next project.

    ~ Paul VanDyke, Owner

  • David did a fantastic job on my project. His initial reads were spot on with regard to my scope and notes. Of course, little tweaks are always needed, and he responded with kindness and timeliness. My client loved the end product and I have a feeling that we will be working together again. I highly recommend David as a voice actor and a professional.

    ~ J. Brooks Christol, Partner
    Barker & Christol, LLC


  • I was glad my client was impressed with David's voiceover read. He was incredible to work with, and his voiceover skills were exactly what my client needed. He worked on two revisions as I had a very particular client that wanted certain inflection points he wanted to hit. He sent over several different reads, allowing me as the editor to pick and choose the best for the project. And...he did all of this on Christmas Eve.

    To say his response time was excellent; would be a gross understatement, and I'd recommend him for any voiceover project.

  • Working with David was a great experience. Our clients are very particular about the voices they choose to be the public facing representation of their brand. For one of our projects, we'd gotten a number of audition samples from various artists and the client chose to go with David for their piece (for all the right reasons). That was a win. David is easy to work with, communicative, flexible, fairly priced, and most importantly, delivers a great product both from a performance and quality/technical perspective. There are a lot of folks out there claiming to be VO artists, but the quality of their files and their performance abilities and tone belie the moniker. David is a true pro. I recommend him without hesitation and we're looking forward to working with him in the future.

  • I've worked with a ton of voiceover artists over the 20+ years I've been in video production and David stands out as a true talent. He is quick to respond to requests, his turn-around times are ideal for anyone working with tight deadlines and his VOICE! Amazing range and powerful. I highly recommend using David for any job.

  • Working with David Lambert was an absolute pleasure. My clients were looking for a certain type of voice and style and he used his talents to create exactly what we were looking for. The professionalism and speed at which David worked was amazing. Needless to say everyone was extremely happy with the final product and we will definitely use David again in the future.

  • David Lambert is an extremely talented voice artist who is also reliable and fast. We needed a quick turnaround for a political ad and David delivered well on time. I highly recommend David for anyone in need of voiceover work.

  • David is an excellent actor. He takes direction very well and is great to work with. We cast him as Santa for a lottery radio spot and his performance was spot-on. I wouldn’t hesitate to cast him again.

  • David Lambert offers excellent voiceover work. His voiceovers are high quality - his voice sounds very natural & relaxed and there is no sound contamination whatsoever. I asked for a professional, educational voiceover and he delivered exactly that - it's perfect for our audience (financial advisors and their audiences). He was pleasant to work with and prompt in providing the final deliverable to us. We'd be more than happy to use him again anytime!

  • David was easy to work with. He took direction well and provided fast turn around. Specifically our team used him as a Santa voiceover and was very believable. Perfect delivery all around. David was instantly in contact and available. The delivery of the product was perfect and within less than half the time of the posted deadline and was willing to do multiple takes in order to get everything exactly how we wanted.

    ~ David Snyder, CEO

  • David is a true professional. Not only is he a great voice talent with fast deliverables, but he also can adjust to changing needs as a project goes on. The content he voiced received great feedback ("who did that awesome voice recording?"), and I look forward to working with him again soon!

My Rates

The rates below are very general and should be used as a guide to help you budget for your project.
Please contact me directly for a custom quote based on your specific needs.

Definitions

  • Buy-Out: a flat rate which "buys" the right to use your voice. All non-union jobs are considered "buy-outs."
  • Monthly Retainer: An agreement in which the client pays a set amount each month to compensate you for on-going work. The rate should be based on the average amount of work per month. We strongly encourage you to set a maximum amount of work the client is allowed to ask for each month at that rate.
  • Per Hour: charging an hourly rate based on the length of time you spend at the studio.
  • Per Project: charging a flat rate for a script, regardless of the time spent at the studio.
  • Per Session: charging a flat rate for the recording session (the time you spend in the studio) regardless of the number of projects recorded.
  • Per Spot: charging a flat rate for each commercial spot, regardless of the time spent at the studio.
  • Residuals: Additional compensation for a commercial, above and beyond the initial payment, based on the number of times a spot is run. Paid every 13 weeks. This occurs in SAG or AFTRA (Union) commercials only.
  • Scratch Track: a temporary recording that is a "place-holder" for the final voice-over. Not recorded as "broadcast quality" sound. Production facilities use scratch tracks to assist them with designing TV/video/flash presentations.
  • Session: the time spent at a recording studio on one given trip. If you leave the studio and come back on a different day, even if you continue to work on the same project, it is a new "session."
  • Union Rates: The negotiated minimum rates for union voice-over work which union members should follow. The two unions governing voice-over are SAGAFTRA.
