The Talent must have a home studio or free and easy access to a studio to be listed on this site. The home studio must also be able to produce broadcast quality audio and the Talent must have a parent/carer/chaperone (herein after known as the “Representative”) to aid them with the production of audio. Please note Talent and Representatives will be vetted before being accepted onto this site, and our sister site, Tiny British Voices.
Fees vary from job to job but we will always discuss rates openly with our Talent’s Representative, who will in turn need to agree to the level of remuneration offered. Please do not proceed with any work until both parties are in agreement. Failure to comply could result in non-payment. As a Management Service/Broker, we charge a commission to our Talent for the introduction and liaison service we offer. Talent are not required to pay to be on the site(s). Commission is applicable and will be taken from each job before payment to the Talent is sent, the percentage of which can vary depending on the level of input required to organise the project. More information on fees will be forwarded to the Representative if their respective Talent is successfully chosen to work on a project. Payment for the work the Talent undertakes will be sought from the Client in line with our invoicing practice, which is to work to 30 day terms. As the “broker”, Child Voices/Tiny British Voices will endeavour to recoup monies owed promptly and efficiently. If however, despite our utmost efforts, in the unfortunate event we are unable to obtain monies due from the Client, neither Child Voices nor Tiny British Voices will be under any obligation to pay the Talent. Please also note that the money for the job is for the Talent’s (child’s) contribution to the project. We do not pay Representatives or their associates etc. to produce, manage, edit, direct or otherwise. As the Talent’s Representative, if you are not happy with aiding your child to produce high quality work, please do not apply on their behalf to be on this site.
Clients will have 7 days to approve the audio that the Talent delivers. If audio is delivered by the Talent/Representative that is not accepted by the Client, the Talent will offer two rounds of revisions for tone, style, pronunciation etc. Any script changes will be subject to additional charges. If the Talent is unable to deliver an acceptable finished product to the Client, they will forfeit the fee for that particular project.
In terms of licensing, it is illegal for a child to perform (with payment) without the necessary license in place. Representatives of the Talent – it is your responsibility to make sure you have assisted in the application of a license with the relevant production company or producer by signing and forwarding the appropriate Local Authority forms. By the same token, it is your responsibility to seek a license for the Talent when they work from home, with you being the “Employer”. Should you need advice on the same, please do not hesitate to contact us or your Local Authority’s Child Employment Team. Neither Child Voices nor Tiny British Voices can be held responsible for any repercussions of a child not being licensed for any given project/performance.
The Representative’s agreement to have their respective Talent listed on this site, and our sister site Tiny British Voices, is an absolute acceptance of these terms and conditions and it is the Representative’s responsibility to read and accept these terms on behalf of the Talent, who in most cases, are minors.
