Full or minimum payment must be paid to Mental Imagery Films immediately for the video to be planned and booked. This payment term can vary depending on agreement with client and will be explained prior to the agreement. Any payment made outside of the agreed upon invoice is considered a nonrefundable tip or donation unless a prior agreement had been made allowing cash payments. Terms of payment will be stated within the invoice.
REFUND TERMS: Once the invoice is paid in full or even part paid in deposits, we do not issue refunds under any circumstances. We will aim to fulfill the contract as per the terms, but we do not issue refunds if the client changes their mind at any stage of the process.
It is up to the purchaser to arrive at the shoot on time and prepared, Mental Imagery Films will not be held accountable for loss of shooting time or expenses incurred. Mental Imagery Films promise to film and provide the music video as close to the original description in the video plan attached to the invoice, however this can depend on the performers, day of filming, unanticipated set-backs and co-operation of all involved. Depending on your budget the number of reviews/amendments of the final video will depend on the package you choose. For all additional amendments there is a charge of $40 for each set of amendments and each time the video has to be rendered. Mental Imagery Films will do their best to send you a preview of the video within 3-4 weeks after filming, and will endeavor to have the video finished within 1 month from filming, depending on reviews/amendments requested from client and quality of video/footage, however this is not a guarantee.
Hair & Makeup terms: If we provide the hair and makeup artist, we will endeavor that they will do the job to your preference, but cannot guarantee they will meet your expectations. It is up to the client to ensure they are happy with the service and make it clear on the day of filming if they are not. We will not be held accountable for hair and makeup and the final results. The client must come prepared if they have high expectations for this.
We will not be held responsible when a model, dancer, actor or extra does not attend day of filming although they have been booked by us in advance. we will endeavor to find a replacement if possible and if we do not succeed we will refund the fee payed for the said person, less administration fee. We will also not be held responsible if a dancer, model, actor or extra does not perform to the highest standard that is expected of them for the said project. This is always a risk when booking people for projects.
We will do our best to meet the requirements of the video; however will not be held accountable if the client/purchaser is not satisfied with the final outcome. The purchaser is entitled to all footage taken of the shoot if requested, there is a $250 charge to release all the footage to the client, however Mental Imagery Films and the Director/ Videographer involved must be accredited in the final video and if the footage is used elsewhere, as Mental Imagery Films and the director involved hold all creative copyright on the original footage. If the client would like to own all rights to the footage and buyout the director and Mental Imagery Films, there must be a payment of $500 paid, and Mental Imagery Films will release all footage to the client with a contract of full release of ownership.
The purchaser agrees to allow Mental Imagery Films to use the video footage, photographs and behind the scenes footage/photographs and final video for their own promotional activities including promotion on their show reel, websites, social media and video profiles including YouTube and Vimeo. Mental Imagery Films and the Director in charge of the shoot still have creative copyright on the original video and footage. If the video is tampered with and reclaimed by another person as their own, including any video footage/photos, this is copyright infringement and legal action will be taken.
For Music Videos, whichever Director worked on the video will be entitled to brand the video at the beginning with their name, under no circumstances should this be removed. This is for any music videos that will be used online. If for example, a special requirement is that the name must be removed at the beginning for TV purposes, we are happy to supply a copy of the video for TV, at any format requested, without any branding for a small fee of $100. But all credits must be given to the Director at all times. If the client requests that the Directors name is completely removed from the final music video, for use online, TV and anywhere else there will be a cost of $500, however this does not mean that Mental Imagery Films or the director has removed creative copyright, these terms of creative copyright ownership still belong to the Director and Mental Imagery Films. If the music video is found online without the Directors name present on the video, and this has not been agreed with Mental Imagery Films or paid for, then Mental Imagery Films can take legal action.
For any other type of videos including promo videos, interview videos, event videos etc we do not require that the Directors name is present at the beginning of the video. We only require that the company logo “Mental Imagery Films’ and contact information is stated at the end of the video, and given credit on any online or other viewing forums. This logo must not be removed from the video if being used online. However if the video is being used for TV, the logo can be removed by client, or we can remove and send another version without the logo for a small fee of $50. All credits to ‘Mental Imagery Films’ must be given at all times. No other payment will be requested by ‘Mental Imagery Films’ and their directors after the initial costs of making the music video, as long as all terms mentioned above are followed.
