1. Agreements

By signing the order form or asking us to proceed with the work detailed within the quote, a binding agreement will come into place, which cannot be cancelled without consent from both client and us.

This agreement is governed by English Law so that disputes can only be settled within English Courts.

This Agreement constitutes the entire agreement between the parties with respect to all matters referred to herein and supersedes all earlier warranties, representation or statements made by the parties (whether orally or in writing).


2. Payment Terms and Agreement

This agreement is to pay for an order in accordance with Thunder and Lightning’s simple three stage
payment terms, consisting of a 30% deposit with the order, a 30% payment on the first day of production and 40% payment on delivery or completion of works and no later than 30 days after this point. Work on a project can only commence once the deposit has been paid. A project is considered complete if delivery of client-supplied content is preventing completion of the project.

The second stage invoice will cover the production part of the project, with the final stage fee to include
any additional fees or expenses accrued during the project duration. This will include shoot travel costs, accommodation and sundries as well as extra production and studio time over and above the agreed rate at project start.

Where payment is not made, interest is chargeable on outstanding balances at a rate of 2% per month

Acceptable payment methods are by bank transfer or BACS.

Any additional work requested on the project once the second stage invoice has been issued will be re-quoted as a separate project and the above three stage invoice process will apply.

The project start date is deemed once a signed order confirmation has been received, from which the
cancellation policy will apply. On cancellation at any point of the project after this date, the paid deposit will be retained. If the project is cancelled by the client during the commencement of the project after any aspect of the work has been carried out, the client will be liable to pay for the daily ratable amount of work completed minus the deposit already paid.

An additional cancellation policy applies to live shoot dates. If a shoot date is cancelled or postponed
by the client less than 24 hours prior to the shoot, the client is liable to pay the total rate for the shoot.


3. Ownership

All goods provided or delivered as a result of this order will remain the property of Thunder and
Lightning Films Limited until payment is received and cleared in full.

Once the project has been signed off and full payment has been received, Thunder and Lightning will retain and archive all project footage, assets and documentation for a period of two years, after which the footage may be deleted. Any footage or assets can be released and retrieved at any time in this period for use by the client. Any time spent collating, retrieving and transferring footage or assets will be charged at an hourly studio rate.


4. Copyright

Thunder and Lightning will retain copyright on all films produced until payment is received in full,
upon which copyright is assigned to the client.

Any client-supplied footage, images or content must have full permission of the copyright holder,
and as such, Thunder and Lightning are indemnified against any future copyright


5. General

All prices are subject to VAT at the prevailing rate unless otherwise stated.

Time or price quotations are subject to change without notification, unless quoted in writing
and subject to a maximum guarantee of 2 months from the date written.
