Adrift Pictures brand control insists that the client(s) decides on having a package a director will be supplied internally from Adrift Pictures. It is not acceptable for a director to be brought in from outside of the Adrift Pictures staffing administration.
No footage would be supplied to the client(s) unedited and no raw material can be requested to be edited outside of Adrift Pictures. Clients will all receive a finalised edited showreel that will have been edited internally within Adrift Pictures staffing administration. This is to protect the Adrift Pictures brand.
In order to reserve a booking for a showreel a non-refundable deposit of half the total amount has to be made and cleared in the account of Adrift Pictures and only then will the filming be processed and booked into the system for further development. If for any reason the filming cannot go ahead based on an error from Adrift Pictures, the deposit will be refunded to the clients bank account.
This is at the desecration of Adrift Pictures and Adrift Pictures reserve the right to not refund any client if they deem it an error of the client and not of the company. If the client(s) cancels or postpones the date of filming on two separate occasions with over 24 hours prior knowledge of the filming date, the client(s) will have to pay a new non-refundable deposit of £50 to secure another date to film.
If you needed to move your date within 5 days of your filming date, we do have to look after our crew, cast and locations that will have been booked by this point and may have turned down other work to work for you. so, if you cancel within 5 days of your filming date you have 2 choices:
– Book a different date and pay another £50 deposit.
– Pay for your showreel package in full on the day you cancel and we will waive the deposit fee (saving you £50) and book you in for a new date free of charge. We call this our ‘good faith policy’.
If the client(s) cancels or postpones the date of filming within 24 hours of the filming date they will have to pay a new £50 non-refundable deposit. This is to cover Adrift Pictures loss of earnings on the cancelled or postponed date of filming.
Full payment is to be received before the filming in question. This balance has to be cleared into the account of Adrift Pictures before midnight the day before the filming date that is booked in with the client(s) or Adrift Pictures reserve the right to cancel the filming date without refunding the clients deposit.
Adrift Pictures reserves the right to not show any persons filming material of any kind until the balance for the filming material in question has been paid for in full and has cleared and shown up into the account of Adrift Pictures. Adrift Pictures reserves the right to not refund any client(s) upon request. Adrift Pictures reserves the right whether a re-shoot should take place; this based upon the client(s) not being satisfied with their showreel because of an error from Adrift Pictures. Adrift Pictures always reserves the right to refuse a re-shoot free of charge, or a refund for either the deposit or the full amount paid for the showreel in question.
On receiving the showreel the client(s) is given 7 days to respond with technical or creative notes that are to be given to the editor for changes. Each client is entitled to as many notes as they want, under the express understanding that all notes have to be given to the editor in one email at one time, within the 7 day period from the time the showreel was delivered to the client(s). After these changes have been made or the 7 day period has elapsed each client will incur a fee of £25 in order for the editor to make any more changes. This £25 pays for another re-edit, as long as the notes come in one email at one time. If the process is needed to be repeated each re-edit will incur a fee of £25 per client.
Adrift Pictures do not keep the raw camera and sound files for longer than a period of 12 months. Adrift Pictures are not responsible for the loss of archived footage shot over the period of 12 months from the date of filming. Adrift Pictures will only keep archived footage of any kind for 12 months.
If a client has had a showreel created by Adrift Pictures over 6 months ago, the fee for adding additional footage to the reel will be charged reflecting the costs on the website for existing footage showreels. If the payment for a showreel has not been recieved 10 working days after the due date set on the invoice in question, Adrift Pictures reserve the right to remove the free re-edit and a cost of £25 per re-edit will be incurred for any charges needed.
Any showreel provided by Adrift Pictures cannot to used as film or other festival material.
