Hey Lu's Mission - About Us
- Has anyone clicked on my profile?
- When searching “Eng Announcer” did the client scroll down to voice number 150 to hear mine?
- Who are all these other voices with less than 1-year experience that comes up first in the search?
- Did I load all my character clips on my profile?
- I’m 39 and the client selected they needed a voice between 40 and 50, surely I sound 40 but now they won’t hear me?
- We don’t book voices
- We don’t recommend voices
- We don’t host clips
- We are not an agent
- We are not clients and don’t “create” work
- When no briefs gets sent out, is just indicative of the industry being quiet.
Fees And FAQ's
Our service is free to Voice Users (Clients). For Voice Artists we charge a very affordable fee of R600 Per Year.
Why is your website so plain?
We rather spent the money where its needed, and attempt to deliver a costs effective platform. Our website is purely for signing up purposes and really no need to visit it after you have signed up. The rest of the service is mobile.
Voice Artists who have signed up here and at another voice bank like service, Why Hey Lu?
Hey Lu pushes work to you, maybe worthwhile asking yourself if you got bookings through the voicebank like service, do they know? Do they know if anyone clicked on their profile on voice bank?
We used to do a substantial amount of Voicework with Produce. Since the advent of Hey Lu, we have had 1 voice which was booked at Produce .
I have had a lot of requests to join my agency by people who are calling themselves Voice Artists because they are on Hey Lu. When I hear their clips I am horrified. Wow! Lately I sound so negative in my mails but I have grave concerns about the status of the industry these days.
Some of our artists concerns is the extremely broad briefs going out, EG: MVO, all races, 20 – 45 (I am not sure if this is still happening as we do not receive the briefs). They feel as though this is a waste of their time, they would rather the briefs be more specific and then stand a chance, even if it means getting fewer briefs.
This is for good reason. Simply put, you might be 35, but sound like you are 45. Also, clients often don’t know, they say they want a 30 year old, but who knows, a 40 year old might just sound better.
The way the platform is setup allows the artist the opportunity to do the jobs without their agent as the artist signs up and then they can decide whether they want to audition on their own or state who their agent is. I feel as though the briefs should be sent directly to the agents, this might curve the artist potentially wanting to do it on their own.
Our platform has a format that artists need to follow in their voice clip. This is clear in all the communication sent as well as on our website. It included their name and agents name and contact details.
I think we might have had some bookings though HeyLu but not have even known about it, so if the producer who used HeyLu or if HeyLu can let us know directly if the artist was booked off of their audition that would help as well.
Our platform can give this information, but only if we get it. A simple scenario:
Side note I know a few of our guys are not impressed with having paid the annual subscription and not getting anything through the portal, perhaps the first year should have been free while HeyLu gains traction with agencies and producers because they are not going to renew after a year.
Do the guys know how much work they got through a voice bank like service?
