This agreement formulates established work practices and etiquette of the industry and by which Aktion Productions operates.
Once a shoot is confirmed by both parties and dates, call times, and fees are agreed upon via e-mail, the date will be considered booked. If a shoot is booked verbally, it must be then followed up with an e-mail giving confirmation of dates/times and fees agreed upon and reconfirmed via e-mail by Aktion Productions. A deposit of 50% of the agreed-upon quote is due at the time of booking to secure the shoot date, which is applied to the final cost of the shoot.
A cancellation fee will apply at the rate of 50% of the shoot quote if the shoot is canceled within 48 hours of the pre-agreed shoot date (the deposit at the time of booking). A cancellation fee of 100% of the shoot quote will apply if the shoot is canceled within a 24-hour period from the agreed-upon shoot date. No cancellation fee will apply if the shoot is rescheduled to a later date (other than the 50% booking deposit).
Force Majeure Cancellations
“Force Majeure” means “Superior Force.” Such forces could include fire, earthquakes, labor strikes, war, civil unrest, tsunamis, or hurricanes. Force Majeure Cancellations DO NOT apply to rain, potential rain, fog, heat, or other usual weather occurrences. Due to a Force Majeure, either party may cancel a shoot without a cancellation fee or without standard notice without the threat of legal ramifications. However, reimbursement of any production rental equipment, travel expenses already made, etc., will still be owed by the client even in case of Force Majeure cancellation.
