Working to Picture
Supply existing videos as Quicktime, WMV or similar and receive a synchronised voiceover track afterwards to drop into your timeline in the edit suite.
CKUK works with many other voices in many other languages and has expert casting knowledge. So if the requirement is just for a British female voice to partner Chris or you want the same text recorded in thirty languages, let us know and we will be able to help.
