There are no other promises, conditions, understandings or other agreements, whether oral or written, relating to the subject matter of this Agreement.
8.1 Each job is unique with many variable factors. Therefore, MIND THE FILM LTD prefers to estimate on an individual project basis, after having discussed or been fully briefed on the proposed project.
8.2 There are a number of variables which may affect the estimate including the location of the shoot, shooting conditions, team required, equipment required, sophistication, length and amount of deliverables, final use / distribution, urgency and work load.
8.3 We will be happy to discuss any of the above with you in greater detail and we are sure you will find us fair, reasonable and transparent.
8.4 We are happy to provide any estimates in writing once we have received a full brief from the client and been able to discuss the requirements and expectations.
8.5 Amendments to the delivered video take time to re-edit and are chargeable to the client. We usually include one round of minor amends at no extra cost but re-editing and/or any further rounds of amends are not included in the estimate and will be billed to the client accordingly.
8.6 Music, voiceovers and hired equipment may also represent additional costs.
9.1 Written estimates will be supplied for all work on receipt of a clear and accurate written brief from the client. Written briefs are required to ensure objectives are well defined for both the client and MIND THE FILM LTD and to avoid errors.

12.1 Limited reproduction rights of the commissioned material pass to the client upon full settlement of the final invoice. This allows reproduction for agreed uses as on the briefing / quotation. By default, and in the absence of any stated use, this will be ‘General Marketing’. ‘General Marketing’ use excludes use for ‘merchandising’ (e.g. reproduction of an image for promotion on goods for resale), for which an additional fee will need to be negotiated.
12.2 Unless agreed in advance, use of the images by any third party (including, but not limited to, newspapers, magazines, book publishers, television, film and the Internet) will only be granted following written permission from MIND THE FILM LTD. This will incur a negotiated reproduction fee.
12.3 We abide by the Consumer Protection from Unfair Trading Regulations 2008 and the Business Protection from Misleading Marketing Regulations 2008. We will not alter our images to deliberately mislead the viewer.
13.1 We grant you (our client) an exclusive licence to use the commissioned material as agreed previously for a period of 12 months from the date of delivery of the commissioned material from MIND THE FILM LTD to you (our client) or from the date that full payment has been received by MIND THE FILM LTD from you (our client) for the commissioned material, whichever is the later. After the period of the licence as stated it will have expired:
13.2 We grant you (our client) a non-exclusive licence to use the commissioned material in perpetuity and in agreement as previously expressed. And you (our client) agree that MIND THE FILM LTD may use the images ourselves and that MIND THE FILM LTD may also licence the images to third parties without reference to you (our client).
13.3 MIND THE FILM LTD shall be granted complete artistic licence including in relation to the poses photographed and the locations used. The photographer’s judgement regarding the locations/poses and number of images taken shall be final. Due to the vagaries of the weather and the willingness of subjects it may not be possible to capture all the images requested.
14.1 If a job is cancelled by the client and simply not re-scheduled due to the client no longer requiring our services and if MIND THE FILM LTD has incurred costs/fees unless by a pre-agreement, costs that have been incurred will have to be met by the client.
15.1 If MIND THE FILM LTD cannot shoot due to adverse weather conditions or mechanical failure, and the shoot cannot be rescheduled, MIND THE FILM LTD will refund all advance monies paid for that day. Costs incurred prior to the shoot day such as paid-for site visits and meetings are excluded and remain due for payment.
15.2 If MIND THE FILM LTD cannot shoot due to reasons that only become evident once on site or for reasons that MIND THE FILM LTD was not advised of beforehand, then the full cost will remain due for payment. MIND THE FILM LTD may, at its sole discretion, offer a discount on a reshoot should one be scheduled.
16.1 Notice of cancellation by the client must be received in writing by MIND THE FILM LTD, and the notice is not valid until confirmed in writing by MIND THE FILM LTD.

However in case of external or operational constraints MIND THE FILM LTD cannot guarantee completion on or by any specific date. It, therefore, cannot be held responsible for any missed publishing or other deadlines or any consequential costs involving the timing of the commission.
17.4 The completion of work may be subject to alteration due to cause or causes beyond our control. In this case, the best possible alternative shot(s) will be supplied and these will be deemed to fulfil the contract.
17.5 The client understands and accepts that event coverage will be as the filmmakers professional expertise determines and that no one image/video will be more important than another. Special requests are not binding instructions, although every effort is made to comply with the client’s wishes.

17.8 In exceptional circumstances, MIND THE FILM LTD may not be able to completely fulfil or complete a contract at all.
