A landmark deal on working conditions for voice actors working on video games has been agreed.
Voice studio OMUK will give Equity members details of the game prior to or at the time of audition and disclose whether an accent is required, among other information.
Minimum fees will be set according to the production's budget. Games with a budget under £500,000 must pay at least £175 per hour, increasing to a minimum £300 for games with a budget of £5m or more.
OMUK Managing Director Mark Estdale says the deal brings the industry in line with existing TV, stage and film agreements.
"Without taking this step, the games industry would remain the wild west of media even though it's now probably the biggest employer of talent."
