In the following terms & conditions “Cinematographer” shall mean G. Victor Fox trading as “Victor Fox”. “The Client(s)” shall be those persons defined as the soon to be married couple in the wedding booking. It is agreed that the following terms set out the total agreement made between the parties and that no variation or modification of this contract shall be effective unless agreed upon by both parties in writing.
BOOKING FEE/DEPOSIT PAYMENTS
This contract shall not become effective until it is signed and the initial amount due has been paid by the Client(s). At the time the contract takes effect, Victor Fox shall reserve the date and time agreed upon, and not make any other reservations or accept any other clients for said date and time. For this reason, in the event that the Client(s) cancels the contract for any reason, all monies paid shall be retained by Victor Fox in order to offset its loss of business.
If additional hours are required of the Cinematographer the client(s) will be invoiced for that time after the event. Payments for additional hours will be due within 30 days of the event.
The Client(s) shall notify the Cinematographer of any changes to scheduling details in writing. The Cinematographer’s typical day consists of Bridal Prep to First Dance unless stated in writing otherwise.
The Client(s) may cancel this contract at any time by giving written notice to the Cinematographer but in doing so shall forfeit any monies paid. Cancellation less than 6 weeks before the wedding will result in the payment in full becoming due. All cancellations must be in writing.
The Client(s) hereby allow(s) the cinematographer to display any video covered by this contract to generally promote Victor Fox in advertising, websites, social media, etc.
FORCE MAJEURE OR ACT OF GOD
The due performance of this contract is subject to alteration or cancellation by either party owing to any cause beyond their control. Although all equipment is checked regularly and reasonable steps are taken to ensure backup equipment is available, the Cinematographer will not be responsible for footage that is not produced due to technical failure.
This includes LIVE-STREAMING. Reasonable steps are taken to ensure live-streams function properly and are retained online after the event (I do not use the venue’s wi-fi unless absolutely necessary. Instead, I use a mobile cellular network for the streaming connection.) However, the cinematographer will not be responsible for footage that is not produced or footage that is below expected quality due to technical failure.
In the unlikely event of the assigned Cinematographer being unable to attend your wedding due to unforeseen circumstances, Victor Fox reserves the right to appoint another Cinematographer to attend your wedding on their behalf and to undertake the wedding Cinematography to his/her best ability and to a similar standard as the original Cinematographer.
LIMITATION OF LIABILITY
In the unlikely event of total video/equipment failure or cancellation of this contract by either party or in any other circumstance the liability of one party to the other shall be limited to the total value of the contract. Neither party shall be liable for indirect or consequential loss.
DELIVERY OF FINAL VIDEO
The final video shall be delivered digitally within three months from the date of the filming.
FILMING ON LOCATION
When filming a wedding in an uncontrolled environment the Cinematographer is sometimes limited by venue restrictions or the layout of the venue. It is understood by the Client(s) that the Cinematographer will work to the best of their ability in each location and judge the best shot for each set of circumstances.
By agreeing for Victor Fox to film your wedding, you are allowing creative licence in shot composition, direction and editing of all the final films. Editing a wedding video is an extremely time-consuming process; a typical wedding video can take over 25 hours to edit. Even minor alterations can be very time consuming. For this reason we only provide revisions at an additional cost.
