VALID FROM THE DATE THE SOW IS SIGNED
|Q. I have signed an Order Form; am I now contractually bound, and if so, how long for?|
|Both parties are legally committed to this Agreement once both us and you have signed the Order Form. Our legal relationship will then continue until we have both fulfilled all of our respective obligations under this Agreement, or until terminated.|
|Q. Can I make any changes to the services I need once I have signed an Order Form?|
|Of course! The price set out in the Order Form is based on the number of weeks that we estimate we’ll need to accomplish everything you’ve told us you want to achieve, but we’re happy to be flexible. If you want to change your mind or add anything new, that won’t be a problem as we’ll provide a separate estimate for those additional weeks. To give you an idea of the types of things that might run over and cost more, here’s a non-exhaustive list:|

*Note: Extra time is required if changes are requested after approvals on script, storyboard, shoot and edit.
|Q. Talking of fees, how do I pay you?|
|We issue invoices electronically. We require an initial Production Deposit (as set out in the Order Form) to be paid within 7 (seven) days of the invoice date (or as agreed and provided for in the Order Form). The Production Fee balance (as set out in the Order Form) shall be paid within 7 (seven) days of the delivery of the final product (or as agreed and provided for in the Order Form). Any additional fees shall be paid within 7 (seven) days of the invoice date.|
All payments should be made in full to us via BACS or the SWIFT international payments system. You agree to pay all charges associated with international transfers of funds. Please note, if you are late in paying, we reserve the right to charge interest on the overdue sum at 6 (six) per cent a year above the Bank of England’s base rate from the due date until payment of the overdue sum, whether before or after judgment. We will also have the right to suspend all services until payment has been made in full.
Alternatively, if we are delayed in providing the Production Services, or any final product by the Estimated Project End Date, or the Start Date is extended, all due to your negligence, inaction, or breach of the Agreement, we (notwithstanding any other remedies available to us), have the right to charge you a Delay Fee (as set out in the Order form).
|Q. What is the position regarding intellectual property?|
|Just to be clear, what we’re talking about here is intellectual property rights, meaning “all patents, rights to inventions, copyright (including rights in software) and related rights, trademarks, service marks, get up and trade names, internet domain names, rights to goodwill or to sue for passing off, rights in designs, database rights, rights in confidential information (including know-how) and any other intellectual property rights, in each case whether registered or unregistered and including all applications (or rights to apply) for, and renewals or extensions of, such rights and all similar or equivalent rights or forms of protection which subsist or shall subsist now or in the future in any part of the world”, which we’ll call “IPR” for short. |
Each party and/or its licensors own the IPR in anything it has developed prior to this Agreement. For us, this means any IPR relating to the Production Services (including all unedited or partially edited footage i.e. rushes), the final product, and any IPR we’ve developed separately from this project and not paid for by you, and for you this means any IPR in text, images, video content, music, talent and other artwork you provide to us (“Client Materials”).
You also grant us the right to copy and modify any materials or brand collateral for us to provide the Production Services and you guarantee that all elements of the materials and brand collateral you provide are either owned by you, or that you have permission to use them. When you provide these materials to us, you agree to protect us from any claim by a third party that we’re using their intellectual property.
Regarding the final product, provided you have paid for the work and the Agreement has not been terminated, we will grant to you a fully paid-up, worldwide, non-exclusive, royalty-free, perpetual, irrevocable, non-transferable licence to use the final product. This means you’ll have the right to use the final product forever, and we cannot take this right away from you. Furthermore, we’ll assign all IPR in the unique footage audio and graphics which have been created solely for you and used in the final product. Those will be yours to own.
Rushes / project files will be kept free of charge for 12 months – after this we will discard or you can pay for us to store or send via HD (we can provide a price for this on request).
As a final word, we’re proud of the work we create and we love to show it off, so we reserve the right to display all aspects of our creative work, including the completed Project on our website, social media channels, newsletters and other marketing collateral.
|Q. I’ve changed my mind, can I terminate the Agreement?|
|Either party will be able to terminate the Agreement by giving written notice to the other, such termination to take effect after the approval of a Stage of Production and prior to us commencing the provision of the Production Services in respect of the subsequent Stage of Production. If the Agreement is terminated, all fees due to us will become payable and if the Agreement is terminated early by you specifically, you may be charged an additional reasonable Cancellation Fee (details of which are set out in the Order Form).|
|Q. You say these are Terms and Conditions, so where’s the “small print”?!|
|Although the language and format of these Terms and Conditions is simple, the intentions are serious, and this contract is a legal document under exclusive jurisdiction of English and Welsh courts. This Agreement is personal to you, and you shall have no right to assign, transfer, charge, subcontract, or deal in any other manner any of your rights under this Agreement without our consent. Furthermore, no one, other than a party to this Agreement and their permitted assignees, shall have any right to enforce any of its terms. We will endeavour to work out all disputes between us, but in the event things progress, the courts of England shall have exclusive jurisdiction. This Agreement constitutes the entire agreement between the parties and supersedes and extinguishes all previous agreements, promises, assurances, warranties, representations and understandings between them, whether written or oral, relating to its subject matter.|
