It is your responsibility to obtain any permissions, licenses, and pay any fees to any venues/locations or entertainers/musicians performing, where filming will take place (if applicable).
Unless advised otherwise, we will assume all persons attending the event have consented to being filmed.
We respect the wishes and regulations of anyone overseeing the production/event which may limit where we position cameras and other equipment. There may be other restrictions such as a limit to movement around the venue or certain parts of the event which we are not allowed to film.
We make every effort to produce a quality film and ensure all our equipment is of the highest quality and regular maintained. We employ several back-up strategies for sound and vision however, we cannot be held responsible for any lighting, sound or interference issues caused by circumstances outside our control. This includes camera/equipment failure, adverse lighting, noise issues and restrictions imposed by venues.
We use our professional expertise and discretion to ensure that significant parts of the event are recorded. Unfortunately, we cannot guarantee that we will be able to record every aspect of the event as filming takes place 'live'. We retain artistic license.
It is your responsibility to ensure there is a sound processor (mixer, dj, etc.) available for the live recording of audio. If there is not and our services are required to supply a mixing console/unit for live sound recording during the event, there is an additional fee of $500. We believe that a large part of a great video is great audio and only wish to present our clients with the best product possible.
We aim to have a copy of the final film available for you within 90 days of your event. However, this is only a guide as a quality product is of mutual interest to both parties.
You must notify us in writing (email or letter) within 7 days of receipt of the final product of any faults or playback issues and we will make every reasonable attempt to resolve them. Should we not hear from you within 7 days we will assume you are happy with the final product.
