FAQ about working with Stephanie Murphy, PhD Voice Actor on Video Voiceover
Information for Video Producers
I have voiced hundreds of explainer videos about tech, B2B solutions, non-profit and educational messages, PSA, internal corporate videos, screencast videos, medical videos about treatments and patient education, kickstarter videos, videos for Facebook, Instagram, and other social media. I voice animated videos as well as non animated, and can match timings to an existing animation.
I am an American English-speaking female voice actor. My voice age is 30s. I have a warm, lower-register vocal quality and an engaging, storytelling delivery. My goal in video narration is to communicate the short narrative or message in the video, in a way that makes a true connection with the video viewer and creates an unforgettable impression!
I’m available for new video narration projects! Here is some more information for video producers about working with me…

Q: What are your turnaround times?
A: For videos 3 minutes or less in finished length, I can usually deliver a voiceover file within 1 weekday of receiving the script.
For longer videos, 2 – 3 weekdays.
Directed recording session is an exception – files are delivered immediately after the recording session.
Please ask for the most accurate information about availability and turnaround time.
Q: What are your revision policies?
A: After you receive the voiceover and have a chance to review, any revisions that may be needed due to my errors are provided at no charge. Any revisions due to script changes are billed at the same rate as the original project.
Revisions are generally delivered within 1 day of receiving the revision request, or in some cases, the same day.
Q: Are you available for a directed recording session?
A: Yes, I am available for directed sessions.
My studio has phone patch, conference call, Skype, Zoom, or other conference app capability. No ISDN capability. Session minimum of $350.
I am located in Eastern US time zone and have limited availability for directed sessions on most weekdays. Please ask to check availability.
Typically the director takes notes on the best takes during the session.
Unedited, raw (unmastered) audio files are delivered immediately after the session. Mastered, unedited files or edited and mastered files are also available.
Please get in touch for a quote on your project, and be sure to mention that you want a directed session.
Q: I have a script, but no video yet. How can I tell how long my video will be?
A: Use the word count of your script to get a ballpark estimate.
Approximately 150 words is 1 finished minute of audio. Actual length may vary. Rates are based on the actual final length of the voiceover. So, for example, if you tell me you have a 2-minute video script and the voiceover comes out to 3 minutes, you will be charged for a 3-minute video voiceover.
Q: I work with a video production company. Will you join our voice talent roster?
A: Maybe! Here’s how.
If you’ve heard my demos and think I would be a good fit for your voiceover talent roster, and your typical project VO budget approximately matches my rates, please get in touch with me to ask about joining your voiceover talent roster for regular projects.
Q: Stephanie, I think your voice would be perfect for my video project. What now?
A: Great! Please get in touch with me and tell me more about your project. I look forward to hearing from you!
