This was an idea spawned in another thread, but I am seriously thinking of testing this on one of my gigs. What do you think?
The following posted as mod policy. I think it will chase off the ones that I need to chase off, and settle all arguments immediately.
Please understand that there are absolutely no modifications provided with this gig. Even if I make the mistake, you will pay for revisions and here’s why.
Time is money, and even in the most expensive arenas, talent is paid for total time it takes to get a job done to the director’s vision. Actors on a stage may shoot a scene over and over again, the symphony may record a piece a dozen times till the producer says it’s right. Those additional takes are all “on the clock”, even when someone makes an obvious blunder, and these people are being paid huge salaries at union rates.
So, here in the bargain basement world of fiverr, it makes even less sense to do jobs repeatedly for changes in direction, tempo, inflection, or any other reason without further compensation. I support your desire to be Hitchcock, but remember all his actors were on the clock, even on the 20th take.
So, please understand that every single time you press the “request modification” button, I will be happy to accommodate you, but there will be a charge attached. No exceptions.
If you cannot accept this policy, then please save us both time and hassle, and select another VO artist who will give you the modifications you need.
