For our voice-over rates card
State of the art recording studios with BBC quality acoustics
You will find our voice recordings sound clearer and crisper than they would from other studios. This is because both our studios have been acoustically designed to a very high specification.
Our engineers work with the latest Pro-Tools technology to speed up the recording process and minimise the need for re-takes. This saves valuable time during the recording process and reduces the overall costs of the session. We can record your session either ‘wild’ or lip-sync or phrase-sync to picture.
When you need to find just the right voice for your script, Matinée will have one to fit the bill. We can tap into a network of professional voice artists, with a range of fees to suit your budget. Whether your programme requires a documentary-style read, character voicing, an impressionist or a celebrity, Matinée will help you find the voice you need.
No matter the project, please make contact to discuss your specific requirement, and we’ll give you a quote for the job straight away. Tel: +44 (0)1189584934, email: email@example.com or use the Quick Quote form opposite.
Working with translation and production companies
Adding audio visual services to your mix will create many new sales opportunities for your team
Matinée has over thirty years of experience working alongside translation and production companies. So you can be sure our project managers are fully at home with the technical process of supervising and delivering localised material, in a professional manner. We can add translation, voiceover and subtitling to your company’s offering, which will appear seamless to your clients and yet mesh easily with the processes in your own departments.
If you are a translation company, we will send you some helpful guidelines when providing us with copy or scripts, and we can either work from your translations or handle the whole project for you, including translation. If you are a production company, we will provide translations or subtitles in your preferred format; whether that’s subtitle-ready files (XML or PNG), or burnt in as fully-subtitled videos. Voiceover recordings can be supplied as edited files, or we can remix with the original music and effects and provide a finished video, ready to go.
Working seamlessly with your team, we can take on all or part of the process, according to your needs, and help widen your service offering.
An overview of our voiceover services
Throughout our 30 years in the industry, we have worked on a wide variety of projects, assisting clients by providing high-quality voiceovers. Read more below about the different types of content we specialise in.
Explainer videos have recently become more and more popular, with many companies creating explainers to introduce a product or service to the public in a clear and engaging way.
Explainers tend to be short, encouraging companies to say more but with fewer words. This results in shorter scripts, meaning that the narrations for explainers can often be completed within our minimum studio time of one hour. Because explainer videos are informative, and not for commercial benefit, there are no usage fees attached to the voice recording.
One of the most important factors to consider for your explainer video is your choice of narrator. Explainers are designed to be engaging and compelling, and choosing the correct voice artist for your video is key in getting this right. The voice artist you choose should be able to clearly and confidently articulate and communicate what your new product or service is. Their narration should also reflect the ethos of your business and provide a distinctive, memorable voice associated with your company and product.
We are confident that we can find the perfect voice for your explainer video. We work with a wide range of different voice artists with a variety of specialisations, and we can provide narration in more than 80 languages, making us the ideal choice for your next explainer video.

I use Matinee for a lot of subtitling projects and they never fail to meet the deadlines. Great customer service and fast responses. Well done to the entire team.
Jade BurnellThe Big Word
Friendly and efficient service
The speed of response, and friendly, efficient service from all staff was quite exceptional. Matinee particularly stands out by putting the customer’s needs first, even when the job is relatively small and a bit of a technical challenge. I would strongly recommend Matinee for any subtitling work.
