The Rates Are Too Damn LOW!
Written by: | Posted on: | Category:

Let's talk about rates. More specifically the 'race to the bottom.'

This is something that I'm seeing in the P2P sites. Your voices.com, voice123, etc. Most of the 'pay to play sites.'

Scams happen in every walk of life, every industry, all over the place. Even in the voiceover world. Sometimes there are auditions that seem a little off or a questionable email comes your way looking to hire you for a gig that requires you to go to a local studio. I just went through one myself.
