Terms & Conditions

  • SHOWREEL SCENES - FULL PACKAGE

  • www.self-tape.co.uk owns the 100% video copyright of all filmed-from-scratch showreel scenes.

  • Shot-from-scratch scenes must only be used for showreel purposes. They must not be submitted under film festivals, given alternate titles and used as Spotlight credits or anything similar. 

  • No rushes or un-edited files will be provided to the client under any circumstances. Clients will be provided with a finalised, finished edit that has been edited to completion. 

  • Showreel deposits are £100. This secures your filming date.

    You may change your date ONCE in the lead up to filming, but this must be given within 2-weeks notice before your filming date. 
    If you change your filming date inside of the 2-week period, an admin fee of £50 will apply to cover costs of rescheduling actors, locations, equipment rental, the loss of a filming day for our team.

    This deposit covers the work that goes into the pre-production elements, including but not limited to - taking bookings in the calendar, continued email/phone support and correspondence, sourcing scene-partners for scenes and scouting and booking locations.

    Once any of the work above has begun this deposit is non-refundable

    Cancelling your booking within the 48 hours prior to your filming date will result in a loss of your deposit.

    Filming must be completed within 6 months of paying the deposit. 
     

  • Additional costs:

    We travel by car to all locations to haul kit and equipment. If any location requires parking costs over £7.50, this will be invoiced after the day of the shoot to the client. 

    Travel outside of London will be charged per-mile.

    Some locations require a rental fee. Depending on where you want your shoot location to be, there may be a charge. We will always do everything we can to secure locations for free or at the lowest possible cost - but places such as cafes, bar, pubs, offices may incur additional costs. 

  • We reserve the right not to refund a deposit.
     

  • We reserve the right, if needed, to postpone a shoot or booking for any reason. Any cancelled shoot will be re-booked at the earliest convenience to the client. 

  • Full payment for showreel filming must be paid 2 days (48 hours) before the day of the shoot. 

  • We aim to send out finished showreel scenes within 10 days after completion of filming. However, this may take longer depending on our schedule.

    A fast 24 hour turn-around service is available for an additional £99.

     

  • Rushes and raw camera files are kept for no longer than 3 months after delivery of the finished showreel scene has been received. We will not hold onto the footage for any longer than this period.

  • Clients are permitted ONE set of re-edit notes after receiving their finished edit. 

    If, after receiving your finished scene, you feel as though some changes could be made, then any such changes need to be written and provided in an email for us to review and (where possible) apply to a 2nd version. However, due to the nature of editing, do bear in mind that it may not always be possible for us to make all of the changes you ask for. 

    Any desired re-edits after the 1st set of changes is charged at a rate of £49. All re-editing notes must be provided all in one go, via email and at one time.
