We can either supply a full kit or use your kit, whichever you prefer. We film the event and record HD or 4K footage. You supply the recording media/hard drives.  Price does not include editing, this can be added for £200 per day.


For Filming only are we responsible for the broadcast and sound?

Yes, you or your AV company will need to supply us with audio XLR feeds to the cameras if you want it recorded onto the hard drive in sync with the footage, unless you have other means of capturing the audio, or we can bring in a sound engineer to do this for you at an additional cost.

STORAGE & COPYRIGHT

What is the timescale for keeping the raw footage?

We store the raw footage for a period of one year on external drives.

What is the timescale for keeping the project files?

Once the job has been signed off by the client all project files (proxy and rendered) are deleted as these take up a lot of storage space.

What is the timescale for keeping the edited files?

We always keep a high definition copy of all projects we create in their final delivery form on external drives which are then archived for an unspecified period, but will exist as long as we remain in business.

Who owns the copyright?

Being the creator of the recorded material we own the copyright however in paying for our services you are also paying for the right to use the material in it's edited form only for your business and promotional purposes, or purposes discussed in agreeing the commission. No files we issue are permitted to be re-edited by you or your representatives, unless agreed, as this may compromise our creative and professional integrity.

INVOICING & TIMESCALES

When do you invoice the client?

Once a commission has been agreed we  issue an invoice to confirm the basic terms, timescale and payment.

When is payment due?

We usually divide the total payment into two equal payments, the first due date is to initiate the project and the second due date is usually on completion.

What are the timescales for payment?

We usually state on the invoice the due dates or if it states TBC an invoice becomes payable 90 days after the work has been carried out, or if the client delays the completion date beyond 90 days which were not previously agreed.
