Worauf achten, beim Sprecher buchen?

Wenn Sie einen Sprecher buchen, sollten Sie einige Dinge berücksichtigen. Die Auswahl an Sprechern ist sehr groß. Ich möchte ein paar Hinweise geben, um die Spreu vom Weizen zu trennen.

Authentizität

Lassen Sie sich nicht von einer schönen Stimme ablenken. Wird der Inhalt nicht authentisch vermittelt, hilft die schöne Stimme des Sprechers nicht.

Ein eher offensichtlicher Indikator für einen guten Sprecher ist der Druck in der Stimme. Oft sollen Texte (gerade bei Werbespots) sehr plakativ gesprochen sein. Das ist natürlich in Ordnung und ein guter Sprecher kann das auch jederzeit anbieten. Achten Sie bei den Hörproben jedoch darauf, ob der Sprecher auch in der Lage ist, diesen werblichen Druck zurückzunehmen.

Ich bin der Meinung, ein erfahrener Sprecher sollte auch ganz natürlich sprechen können.

Wenn Sie die Demos anhören: Glauben Sie, was Sie hören? Wird der Inhalt gut transportiert? Und Authentizität kann im von mir gemeinten Kontext auch – aber eben nicht nur – bedeuten, dass der Werbesprecher ordentlich Druck in die Message gibt. Oder aber der nette Typ von Nebenan ist.

Technische Qualität

Am besten ist es natürlich immer, den Sprecher ins Studio zu schicken, dann muss man sich um die Aufnahmequalität nicht sorgen. Doch gibt es viele Jobs, wo das zeitlich und monetär nicht praktisch ist. Und manchmal ist man als Kunde bestimmt erleichtert, wenn der Sprecher einfach im Homestudio aufnehmen kann. Sprecher mit eigenem Studio zu sein bedeutet auch, dass der Sprecher sein eigener Tontechniker ist. Und in dieser Doppelrolle muss man schon sehr genau wissen, was man tut. Eine Sprecherkabine sorgt für einen trockenen und ausgeglichenen Sound. Ein hochwertiges Mikrofon, ein entsprechend hochwertiger Preamp und gute AD Wandlung bringt die Sprecherstimme angemessen in die digitale Welt. Doch dann hört es noch nicht auf. Sprecher mit Erfahrungen im Produktionsbereich sind auch in der Lage, die Aufnahme fertig zu editieren. Hierfür ist ein sicherer Umgang mit Werkzeugen wie EQs, Dynamics usw. erforderlich, die für Sprachaufnahmen mit viel Gefühl für den jeweiligen Anwendungszweck angepasst werden wollen.

Werbesprecher

Sie suchen einen Sprecher für Werbung?

Hier gibt es größtenteils zwei Kategorien: Off und Schauspiel.

Bei einem Werbesprecher denkt man meist an einen klassischen Off Sprecher. Dabei fasst der Sprecher am Ende des Werbespots die Kernaussage zusammen. Oder aber der komplette Spot besteht nur aus einem Off Sprecher. Hier gibt es natürlich die unterschiedlichsten Stile: Der Sprecher kann den Text sehr dynamisch und werblich umsetzen, cool, natürlich, im Nachrichtenstil, mit oder ohne Dialekt, etc. Ein flexibler Sprecher ist in der Lage, all diese Stile authentisch anzubieten. Oft kommen in einem Werbespot auch gespielte Szenen vor. Hierfür bietet es sich an, Sprecher mit schauspielerischer Erfahrung zu buchen.

Podcast

Die meisten Podcasts spricht wohl der Autor selbst, was auch sinnvoll ist. Das Intro und Outro eines Podcasts eignet sich jedoch hervorragend für einen professionellen Sprecher. So hat der Podcast sozusagen einen professionellen Rahmen mit hohem Widererkennungseffekt. Neben einem einzigartigen Sounddesign sollte also auch der richtige Sprecher für den Podcast gewählt werden. Sprecher mit eigenem Studio können oft auch die komplette Produktion der Podcast Verpackung übernehmen. Fragen Sie hierbei aber nach Erfahrungen im Produktionsbereich, um nicht enttäuscht zu werden.

Hörbuch

Manch einer bezeichnet das Hörbuch Genre als die Königsdisziplin für Sprecher. Bei Sachbüchern ist es die größte Herausforderung für den Sprecher, die Inhalte absolut zielsicher auf den Punkt zu bringen. Die wenigsten Hörer möchten zurückspulen. Also sollte der Sprecher drauf achten, dass der Inhalt beim ersten Hören klar erfasst werden kann. Die richtige Sprechgeschwindigkeit und Betonungen sind hier ausschlaggebend. Dafür braucht der Sprecher natürlich viel Erfahrung und auch Gefühl. Daher ist das mit der Königsdisziplin vielleicht gar nicht so weit hergeholt.

Natürlich gibt es noch viele weitere Bereichsfelder, wie E-Learning, Imagefilme, Erklärfilme, Radiowerbung, TV Werbung, Telefonansagen, Trailer, Promos, etc. Weitere Tipps zum Thema Sprecher buchen folgen.

FAQs

Wie teuer ist eine Sprachaufnahme?

Da ich als Sprecher normalerweise nicht nach Arbeitszeit bezahlt werde, kommt es darauf an, wie die Aufnahme verwertet wird. Dabei sind vor allem die zwei Faktoren WO und WIE LANGE wichtig. Zum Beispiel kann ein Werbespot, der 3 Jahre in ganz Deutschland läuft und den ich in 30 Minuten aufnehme, ähnlich viel kosten, wie ein Hörbuch, für das ich mehrere Stunden benötige. Melden Sie sich am besten mit möglichst genauen Angaben, WO Sie die gewünschte Aufnahme für WIE LANGE benutzen möchten und ich mache Ihnen ein Angebot.

Ich möchte bei der Aufnahme zuhören, geht das?

Ja, Sie können telefonisch oder über gängige Online-Dienste wie z.B. Teams bei der Aufnahme dabei sein. Ebenfalls online, aber mit höherer Qualität, geht es via SessionLinkConferencing, was ich ebenfalls anbiete. Falls Sie ein Studio sind und gerne via APT arbeiten, so ist das dank meines APT IP Codecs auch möglich.

Was ist, wenn mir deine Aufnahme nicht gefällt?

Bei einer Aufnahme mit Regie (siehe vorherige Frage) können wir so lange an der Aufzeichnung arbeiten, bis Sie zufrieden sind. Wenn ich die Aufnahme selbständig durchführe, sind zwei Korrekturschleifen inklusive, wenn Ihnen Stil oder Betonung nicht gefällt.

Was ist, wenn ich nach der Aufnahme noch eine Änderung brauche?

Wenn sich der Text nach der Aufnahme während der Produktionsphase noch ändert, nehme ich dafür eine kleine Korrekturgage. Sollte der komplette Text neu eingesprochen werden müssen, berechne ich normalerweise 50% des ursprünglichen Auftragswertes zusätzlich.

Wie lange muss ich auf die Sprachaufnahme warten?

Bei kleineren Projekten, bekommen Sie die Aufnahme in der Regel spätestens innerhalb von 24 Stunden. Oft geht es auch unmittelbar am selben Tag. Sollte es mal länger dauern, bekommen Sie sofort Bescheid – ich antworte meist sehr schnell auf alle Anfragen.

Muss ich ein Tonstudio für die Aufnahme buchen?

Nein, da ich in meinem eigenen Homestudio arbeite. Dazu habe ich eine professionelle Sprecherkabine (Studiobricks Pro) und sehr hochwertiges Equipment.

Welche Studioleistungen werden angeboten?

Ich kann meine Aufnahmen so bearbeiten, wie Sie es benötigen. Da ich viele Jahre Erfahrung als Audioproduzent und Tontechniker habe, kann ich alle gängigen Studioleistungen anbieten. Auch Synchronisation auf Video ist kein Problem.

Mir sind viele Begriffe aus der Branche (z.B. „Buyout“, „Cutdown“, „Reminder“, etc.) nicht klar. Wo kann ich mich informieren?

We have concluded a data processing agreement (DPA) with the above-mentioned provider. This is a contract mandated by data privacy laws that guarantees that they process personal data of our website visitors only based on our instructions and in compliance with the GDPR.

3. General information and mandatory information

Data protection

The operators of this website and its pages take the protection of your personal data very seriously. Hence, we handle your personal data as confidential information and in compliance with the statutory data protection regulations and this Data Protection Declaration.

Whenever you use this website, a variety of personal information will be collected. Personal data comprises data that can be used to personally identify you. This Data Protection Declaration explains which data we collect as well as the purposes we use this data for. It also explains how, and for which purpose the information is collected.

We herewith advise you that the transmission of data via the Internet (i.e., through e-mail communications) may be prone to security gaps. It is not possible to completely protect data against third-party access.

Information about the responsible party (referred to as the “controller” in the GDPR)

The data processing controller on this website is:

Dominic Kolb
Eduard-Thöny-Str. 4a
86919 Utting

Phone: 088069581552
E-mail: info@dominic-kolb.de

The controller is the natural person or legal entity that single-handedly or jointly with others makes decisions as to the purposes of and resources for the processing of personal data (e.g., names, e-mail addresses, etc.).

Storage duration

Unless a more specific storage period has been specified in this privacy policy, your personal data will remain with us until the purpose for which it was collected no longer applies. If you assert a justified request for deletion or revoke your consent to data processing, your data will be deleted, unless we have other legally permissible reasons for storing your personal data (e.g., tax or commercial law retention periods); in the latter case, the deletion will take place after these reasons cease to apply.

General information on the legal basis for the data processing on this website

If you have consented to data processing, we process your personal data on the basis of Art. 6(1)(a) GDPR or Art. 9 (2)(a) GDPR, if special categories of data are processed according to Art. 9 (1) DSGVO. If you have consented to the storage of cookies or to the access to information in your end device (e.g., via device fingerprinting), the data processing is additionally based on § 25 (1) TTDSG.

If your data is required for the fulfillment of a contract or for the implementation of pre-contractual measures, we process your data on the basis of Art. 6(1)(b) GDPR. Furthermore, if your data is required for the fulfillment of a legal obligation, we process it on the basis of Art. 6(1)(c) GDPR. Furthermore, the data processing may be carried out on the basis of our legitimate interest according to Art. 6(1)(f) GDPR. Information on the relevant legal basis in each individual case is provided in the following paragraphs of this privacy policy.

Information on data transfer to the USA and other non-EU countries

Among other things, we use tools of companies domiciled in the United States or other from a data protection perspective non-secure non-EU countries. If these tools are active, your personal data may potentially be transferred to these non-EU countries and may be processed there. We must point out that in these countries, a data protection level that is comparable to that in the EU cannot be guaranteed. For instance, U.S. enterprises are under a mandate to release personal data to the security agencies and you as the data subject do not have any litigation options to defend yourself in court. Hence, it cannot be ruled out that U.S. agencies (e.g., the Secret Service) may process, analyze, and permanently archive your personal data for surveillance purposes. We have no control over these processing activities.

Revocation of your consent to the processing of data

A wide range of data processing transactions are possible only subject to your express consent. You can also revoke at any time any consent you have already given us. This shall be without prejudice to the lawfulness of any data collection that occurred prior to your revocation.

Right to object to the collection of data in special cases; right to object to direct advertising (Art. 21 GDPR)

IN THE EVENT THAT DATA ARE PROCESSED ON THE BASIS OF ART. 6(1)(E) OR (F) GDPR, YOU HAVE THE RIGHT TO AT ANY TIME OBJECT TO THE PROCESSING OF YOUR PERSONAL DATA BASED ON GROUNDS ARISING FROM YOUR UNIQUE SITUATION. THIS ALSO APPLIES TO ANY PROFILING BASED ON THESE PROVISIONS. TO DETERMINE THE LEGAL BASIS, ON WHICH ANY PROCESSING OF DATA IS BASED, PLEASE CONSULT THIS DATA PROTECTION DECLARATION. IF YOU LOG AN OBJECTION, WE WILL NO LONGER PROCESS YOUR AFFECTED PERSONAL DATA, UNLESS WE ARE IN A POSITION TO PRESENT COMPELLING PROTECTION WORTHY GROUNDS FOR THE PROCESSING OF YOUR DATA, THAT OUTWEIGH YOUR INTERESTS, RIGHTS AND FREEDOMS OR IF THE PURPOSE OF THE PROCESSING IS THE CLAIMING, EXERCISING OR DEFENCE OF LEGAL ENTITLEMENTS (OBJECTION PURSUANT TO ART. 21(1) GDPR).

IF YOUR PERSONAL DATA IS BEING PROCESSED IN ORDER TO ENGAGE IN DIRECT ADVERTISING, YOU HAVE THE RIGHT TO OBJECT TO THE PROCESSING OF YOUR AFFECTED PERSONAL DATA FOR THE PURPOSES OF SUCH ADVERTISING AT ANY TIME. THIS ALSO APPLIES TO PROFILING TO THE EXTENT THAT IT IS AFFILIATED WITH SUCH DIRECT ADVERTISING. IF YOU OBJECT, YOUR PERSONAL DATA WILL SUBSEQUENTLY NO LONGER BE USED FOR DIRECT ADVERTISING PURPOSES (OBJECTION PURSUANT TO ART. 21(2) GDPR).

Right to log a complaint with the competent supervisory agency

In the event of violations of the GDPR, data subjects are entitled to log a complaint with a supervisory agency, in particular in the member state where they usually maintain their domicile, place of work or at the place where the alleged violation occurred. The right to log a complaint is in effect regardless of any other administrative or court proceedings available as legal recourses.

Right to data portability

You have the right to demand that we hand over any data we automatically process on the basis of your consent or in order to fulfil a contract be handed over to you or a third party in a commonly used, machine readable format. If you should demand the direct transfer of the data to another controller, this will be done only if it is technically feasible.

SSL and/or TLS encryption

For security reasons and to protect the transmission of confidential content, such as purchase orders or inquiries you submit to us as the website operator, this website uses either an SSL or a TLS encryption program. You can recognize an encrypted connection by checking whether the address line of the browser switches from “http://” to “https://” and also by the appearance of the lock icon in the browser line.

If the SSL or TLS encryption is activated, data you transmit to us cannot be read by third parties.

Information about, rectification and eradication of data

Within the scope of the applicable statutory provisions, you have the right to at any time demand information about your archived personal data, their source and recipients as well as the purpose of the processing of your data. You may also have a right to have your data rectified or eradicated. If you have questions about this subject matter or any other questions about personal data, please do not hesitate to contact us at any time.

Right to demand processing restrictions

You have the right to demand the imposition of restrictions as far as the processing of your personal data is concerned. To do so, you may contact us at any time. The right to demand restriction of processing applies in the following cases:

  • In the event that you should dispute the correctness of your data archived by us, we will usually need some time to verify this claim. During the time that this investigation is ongoing, you have the right to demand that we restrict the processing of your personal data.
  • If the processing of your personal data was/is conducted in an unlawful manner, you have the option to demand the restriction of the processing of your data in lieu of demanding the eradication of this data.
  • If we do not need your personal data any longer and you need it to exercise, defend or claim legal entitlements, you have the right to demand the restriction of the processing of your personal data instead of its eradication.
  • If you have raised an objection pursuant to Art. 21(1) GDPR, your rights and our rights will have to be weighed against each other. As long as it has not been determined whose interests prevail, you have the right to demand a restriction of the processing of your personal data.

If you have restricted the processing of your personal data, these data – with the exception of their archiving – may be processed only subject to your consent or to claim, exercise or defend legal entitlements or to protect the rights of other natural persons or legal entities or for important public interest reasons cited by the European Union or a member state of the EU.

Rejection of unsolicited e-mails

We herewith object to the use of contact information published in conjunction with the mandatory information to be provided in our Site Notice to send us promotional and information material that we have not expressly requested. The operators of this website and its pages reserve the express right to take legal action in the event of the unsolicited sending of promotional information, for instance via SPAM messages.

You have the option to set up your browser in such a manner that you will be notified any time cookies are placed and to permit the acceptance of cookies only in specific cases. You may also exclude the acceptance of cookies in certain cases or in general or activate the delete function for the automatic eradication of cookies when the browser closes. If cookies are deactivated, the functions of this website may be limited.

In the event that third-party cookies are used or if cookies are used for analytical purposes, we will separately notify you in conjunction with this Data Protection Policy and, if applicable, ask for your consent.

Usercentrics uses cookies to obtain the declarations of consent mandated by law. The legal basis for the use of specific technologies is Art. 6(1)(c) GDPR.

Data processing

We have concluded a data processing agreement (DPA) with the above-mentioned provider. This is a contract mandated by data privacy laws that guarantees that they process personal data of our website visitors only based on our instructions and in compliance with the GDPR.

We will not share this information without your consent.

The processing of these data is based on Art. 6(1)(b) GDPR, if your request is related to the execution of a contract or if it is necessary to carry out pre-contractual measures. In all other cases the processing is based on our legitimate interest in the effective processing of the requests addressed to us (Art. 6(1)(f) GDPR) or on your agreement (Art. 6(1)(a) GDPR) if this has been requested.

Request by e-mail, telephone, or fax

If you contact us by e-mail, telephone or fax, your request, including all resulting personal data (name, request) will be stored and processed by us for the purpose of processing your request. We do not pass these data on without your consent.

These data are processed on the basis of Art. 6(1)(b) GDPR if your inquiry is related to the fulfillment of a contract or is required for the performance of pre-contractual measures. In all other cases, the data are processed on the basis of our legitimate interest in the effective handling of inquiries submitted to us (Art. 6(1)(f) GDPR) or on the basis of your consent (Art. 6(1)(a) GDPR) if it has been obtained.

5. Analysis tools and advertising

Google Tag Manager

We use the Google Tag Manager. The provider is Google Ireland Limited, Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland

The Google Tag Manager is a tool that allows us to integrate tracking or statistical tools and other technologies on our website. The Google Tag Manager itself does not create any user profiles, does not store cookies, and does not carry out any independent analyses. It only manages and runs the tools integrated via it. However, the Google Tag Manager does collect your IP address, which may also be transferred to Google’s parent company in the United States.

The Google Tag Manager is used on the basis of Art. 6(1)(f) GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in the quick and uncomplicated integration and administration of various tools on his website. If appropriate consent has been obtained, the processing is carried out exclusively on the basis of Art. 6(1)(a) GDPR and § 25 (1) TTDSG, insofar the consent includes the storage of cookies or the access to information in the user’s end device (e.g., device fingerprinting) within the meaning of the TTDSG. This consent can be revoked at any time.

Google Ads

The website operator uses Google Ads. Google Ads is an online promotional program of Google Ireland Limited (“Google”), Gordon House, Barrow Street, Dublin 4, Ireland.

Google Ads enables us to display ads in the Google search engine or on third-party websites, if the user enters certain search terms into Google (keyword targeting). It is also possible to place targeted ads based on the user data Google has in its possession (e.g., location data and interests; target group targeting). As the website operator, we can analyze these data quantitatively, for instance by analyzing which search terms resulted in the display of our ads and how many ads led to respective clicks.

The use of Google Ads is based on Art. 6(1)(f) GDPR. The website operator has a legitimate interest in marketing the operator’s services and products as effectively as possible.

Data transmission to the US is based on the Standard Contractual Clauses (SCC) of the European Commission. Details can be found here: https://policies.google.com/privacy/frameworks and https://privacy.google.com/businesses/controllerterms/mccs/.

6. Newsletter

Newsletter data

If you would like to subscribe to the newsletter offered on this website, we will need from you an e-mail address as well as information that allow us to verify that you are the owner of the e-mail address provided and consent to the receipt of the newsletter.

We shall use such data only for the sending of the requested information and shall not share such data with any third parties.

The processing of the information entered into the newsletter subscription form shall occur exclusively on the basis of your consent (Art. 6(1)(a) GDPR). You may revoke the consent you have given to the archiving of data, the e-mail address, and the use of this information for the sending of the newsletter at any time, for instance by clicking on the “Unsubscribe” link in the newsletter. This shall be without prejudice to the lawfulness of any data processing transactions that have taken place to date.

The data deposited with us for the purpose of subscribing to the newsletter will be stored by us until you unsubscribe from the newsletter or the newsletter service provider and deleted from the newsletter distribution list after you unsubscribe from the newsletter or after the purpose has ceased to apply.
