Each job is unique and carries with it a number of variables. One client may require a few local aerial photos, whilst another may require a full media campaign with finished film creation.
400 Feet Films prefer to quote on an individual basis, having discussed the brief for the proposed project. Being UK based the biggest variable we have to contend with is the weather. We cannot fly in the rain or very strong winds. Other factors such as time of year, location, associated risks or additional CAA approvals and site visits also need to be considered.
Travel expenses, along with accommodation (where needed) will also be chargeable, though this will be agreed with the client before hand.
Our payment Terms
30 Days, with a 25% booking fee to be PAID IN ADVANCE. We are happy to provide quotes in writing upon receiving a full brief from the client, along with discussing the aims & objectives with the intended shoot.
Availability & Booking
We are very flexible with working with clients, most jobs can be re-scheduled to other week days where necessary. However we do need time to do pre-flight checks to ensure the job can be carried out safely, adhering to the rules and regulations of aerial filming and our CAA operating licence.
Postponements & Cancellations
Should a shoot need to be cancelled due to flying conditions, we shall not charge the client for the rescheduling to another date. The 25% booking fee will simply be transferred over to the new date when we can shoot.
If the job cannot be rescheduled (we normally know weather conditions 5 days in advance), we will discuss cancellation policy and potential fees and come to a fair and reasonable compromise.
Should a job be cancelled due to other reasons and not rescheduled by the client, the 25% deposit will not be refunded. Additional costs incurred will also have to be met by the client.
Unless copyright has been bought as part of the commisssion, 400 Feet Films retains the copyright of all filming assets. The purchasing client will get full use of the material, however they will not be able to pass on to any third party without prior agreement.
We reserve the right to use our work actively to promote ourselves, whether it be in showreels elsewhere on the web. We also reserve the right to supply stock agencies at a later date.
Should you have any querries with these terms please address them prior to filming, thank you.
All enquiries will be treated in the strictest of confidence.
