Description of Services: (Attached to Agreement)
[We’ll send a description of services with your order]
Please note, within the basic one-off or monthly packages we do not include the removal of all “umms” “ahhs” and filler words unless you provide specific sections or timestamps. That being said we will remove all long pauses or sections that were clearly not meant to be included in the final cut by default.
Specify regions that need to be cut or edited in timestamp format (i.e. Cut 2:47-3:24, Add 30 seconds of silence at 18:44, Add mid-roll message at 23:17, etc.) If you would like breaths or specific noises or filler words removed please let us know what the noises are and where to find them. If we do not hear from you the only things we will remove in the cutting phase of editing are dead air and sections that were clearly not intended to be included in the finished product.
Within the standard, full service, and deluxe packages, episodes are limited to 90 minutes. Any episode over 90 minutes will be addressed on a case-by-case basis.
Please specify the range you would like us to pull the captioned video from. If you do not provide a section for us to look within, we will select a section that we feel does a good job at hooking the viewer’s attention. If you are not happy with our selection, there is a $10 fee for us to redo it with a brand new section.
2: You have the ability to authorize Podblade to charge your account for all overages, and to receive reports of these expenses as they occur. For authorization of overages, we will provide a separate document.
We take full responsibility for work done by subcontractors within the scope of services, as it is for work done by its own employees. We will have written agreements with subcontractors that contain, at a minimum, clauses that are the same as or comparable to the sections of this Contract regarding ownership rights and confidentiality of your materials.
This contract does not imply a Business Partnership or Employment of Andrew Crider, or any other Staff/Subcontractors employed by Podblade.
