Agreement For The Production Of Television And Cinema Commercials


Some changes were made to the provisions relating to the presence of the Agency`s representative at the photo shoot. The Agency now has the right to organize it not only during filming or recordings, but also during post-production. 2. If the client or his designated primary contact is not available for consultation during the project or changes the terms of the project so that the production company is unnecessarily uncomfortable, the production company reserves the right to collect additional administrative costs that do not exceed the initial remuneration. Such customer actions may, but cannot be limited to; Repeated cancellation or postponement of meetings at the customer`s request, excessive failures or delays (i.e. one week or more) to respond to written, electronic or telephone communications, excessive costs on the part of the production company, postponement of the agreed film or days, or delay in the provision of the agreed services indicated by the production company in accordance with this contract. A similar provision applies to the production company to the extent that such death or assault is due to its own negligence, while the production company is not explicitly responsible for the insurance of non-established staff in the United Kingdom, who are subject to other mandatory insurance agreements against death or personal injury that can only be carried out by the employer of the registrations. In such cases, the employer must be responsible for the provision of the corresponding insurance. One type of contract often used, but often misunderstood, that is used throughout the entertainment industry is the Production Services Agreement.

This short article will attempt to demystify and explain the use of such agreements, but should not be considered a substitute for real legal advice by a lawyer you have hired to help you determine the best overall structure of the agreement for your project. From the filmmakers` point of view, it is very important that the enterprise agreement be developed to ensure that the filmmaker retains full control over the management of the company. Since the films are very personal to the filmmaker, the enterprise agreement should include an “emergency plan” which, as the name suggests, should indicate the backup plan and the consequences in the event that, for whatever reason, the filmmaker is unable to conclude the project. We also recommend that filmmakers` obligations be specified in separate employment contracts, so that filmmakers become employees of LLC and that the intellectual property created be owned by the LLC under the traditional principles of “work for rent.”
