4.2 The Goods and Services that we provide are available in different packages and at different prices. By choosing video option, the “Basic Package & Classic Package” you accept that the creative content is limited since this option includes only one camera operator. You acknowledge that the creative content will be greater with a greater investment to support us as a company.

4.3 Where you also choose an option for Goods which includes still photography, the number of photographs that we supply to you may vary.

5. TITLE AND RISK

5.2 Ownership of the Goods will only pass to you when we receive payment in full of all sums due for the Goods.

6.2 We will not publish publicly any of yours and your friends & family’s footages and photos unless ordered by you.

6.2 Any material, raw images or film footage is retained by us for no longer than 4 weeks from the delivery of your goods by mail.

7. PRICE AND PAYMENT

7.1 The price of the Goods and Services will be as set out in our price list in force at the time we confirm the Agreement. Prices are liable to change at any time, but price changes will not affect any Agreement which has been previously agreed and signed.

7.2 These prices include VAT. If, however, the rate of VAT changes between the date of the Agreement and the date of delivery, we will adjust the VAT that you pay, unless you have already paid for the Goods and Services in full before the change in the rate of VAT takes effect.

7.3 A non refundable payment by bank transfer of 10% of all monies owed for the Goods and Services as stated on the Agreement must be made in advance in order to secure the Agreement. The remaining balance will become due 7 (seven) days before or after the date of your Event.

7.4 Our account details are as follows:

Account Name: DMD Studios Ltd.

Account Number: 49055932

Sort Code: 09-01-28

Branch Address: Santander, Chichester Branch, 15 North Street, West Sussex, PO19 1LB

7.5 Any agreed Goods will not be supplied until all payments due have been fully paid and if you do not make any payment due to us by the due date for payment (as set out in clause 9.4 we may charge interest to you on the overdue amount at the rate of 4% a year above the base lending rate of Santander from time to time. This interest shall accrue on a daily basis from the due date until the date of actual payment of the overdue amount, whether before or after judgement. You must pay us interest together with the overdue amount.

7.6 Without limiting any other remedies or rights that we may have, if you do not pay us on time, we may cancel or suspend our performance of the Services or supply of the Goods or any other outstanding order or Agreement until you have paid the outstanding amounts.

7.7 The Basic and Classic Packages are non-refundable budget packages. We recommend filming weddings with 2 or more camera operators (as an experienced and professional video production company) as this is safer and gives us more than just one angle to film from. This also gives an opportunity to use a cut in editing if a camera needs to move in the live event, as a wedding is. Filming a wedding on 1 camera does not sometimes give us the opportunity to produce a slick production, as a wedding is a live event. Also, by booking 2 cameramen/women, if something goes wrong, you have a 2nd camera operator as a back up. We therefore always advise, as a professional video production company, if you have high expectations for your wedding video to ALWAYS use 2 or more cameras to film. We always do our best for customers on the Basic and Classic Packages but please be aware the more you invest into your wedding video/film, the more we can do to produce an outstanding wedding video/film production for you.

7.8 We have the right to revise and amend these Terms from time to time to reflect changes in market conditions affecting our business, changes in technology, changes in payment methods, changes in relevant laws and regulatory requirements and changes in our system’s capabilities.

No waiver by us of any of these Terms shall be effective unless we expressly say that it is a waiver and we tell you so in writing.
