PROJECT OVERVIEW

The purpose of this project is to develop the following content for El Paso Health:

  • Four 30-second TV spots with different iterations.

  • Eight mid-length cuts derived from the TV footage for digital use.

  • Six super short videos tailored for social media platforms.

  • Twenty (+) high-resolution photos for various campaign assets.

PRODUCTION

The Production expenses encompass a comprehensive range of financial considerations associated with both Pre-Production and Production phases.

  • In the Pre-Production phase, meticulous planning, thorough preparation, location scouting, casting, and storyboarding are essential elements.

  • Moving into the Production phase, the focus shifts to professional crew engagement, aerial services employing drones, equipment rentals, travel arrangements, permits acquisition, props procurement, and any other necessary expenditures to ensure a successful production process.

All video footage will be securely stored on our drives for a duration of 30 days following the delivery of all project files. Subsequently, these files will be terminated. Should you wish to have us keep the footage on our drives, an additional storage retainer can be arranged. Alternatively, you may provide an external drive for the transfer of the footage.

EXAMPLES

POST-PRODUCTION

The Post-Production expenses encompass a comprehensive range of costs intricately tied to refining the visual and auditory aspects of the project.

  • This includes meticulous editing, innovative sound design, precise color grading, visual effects, and any other essential post-production expenditures required to elevate the overall quality and impact of the final product.

All deliverables will be provided in industry-standard digital formats through an advanced video collaboration platform. This tool allows you to comment and annotate for adjustments to the edited video, ensuring effective version control. Your valued input is crucial, and we're committed to meeting any additional requirements for the successful completion of your project.

14. CONTINGENCY AND WEATHER DAYS
14.1. A contingency day is any day where a scheduled media/film shooting has been prevented from occurring due to circumstances beyond the control of the production company.

(2) Injury, illness, or absence of client-supplied elements (e.g. key talent, color correct products).

(3) “Force majeure” (meaning but not limited to, earthquake, riot, fire, flood, volcanic eruption, acts of war, strikes, labor unrests, civil authority, terrorism, and acts of God).

(4) “Client Insured Re-Shoots” (any additional days for a job insured by the Client, who is therefore authorizing the expenditure). The Client should be provided with a contingency day cost which should be approved before proceeding with that shoot day.

14.3. The Production Company recognizes its obligation to minimize contingency day liabilities and will apply accepted industry cancellation practices.

14.4. The Production Company will quote the maximum exposure figure (a “not to exceed” figure) as a contingency day cost. This will be a cost per day figure. However, this figure does not include the cost of premiums for crew or suppliers (i.e., should the contingency day fall on weekends, holidays, or premium days based on consecutive employment).

 

15. CANCELLATION AND POSTPONEMENT
A cancellation or postponement is defined as a rescheduling of the production to a later specific date caused or directed by the Client or total cancellation of the project.

If the Production Company blocks out a specific period of time with the agreement that it represents a firm commitment from the Client, then the Production Company makes no further efforts to sell the time. If the job is canceled or postponed within the Guideline time frame, it is unlikely that this time can be rebooked. It should be understood that this time represents the Production Company’s only source of income.
