Robert Scott Film (hereinafter "Producer") is pleased to provide video production services (hereinafter the "Production") to individuals, websites, companies, and public entities, and/or their agents and representatives (hereinafter "Client").  By retaining the services of Producer, as provided in the  "Video Production Service Agreement" (provided separately), Client agrees to be bound by the following Terms of Service:  

1. Service Agreement. Producer is retained by Client to perform video production services as described in the Video Production Service Agreement.  Only those services specifically described in the Video Production Service Agreement will be provided at the cost, or estimated cost, stated therein.  Any other additional services, changes, re-edits, or modifications ordered by Client are subject to additional charges.  

2. Status of Producer. Producer will perform all services as an independent contractor, and not as an employee of Client. Producer shall operate under the direction of Client only to the extent as needed to produce desired content.  

3. Ownership of Production. Client and Producer each considers the Production to be a work made-for-hire. Excepting such items which are specifically identified by Producer as proprietary trade secrets, the finished Production and all rights therein, including copyright, shall be and remain the property of the Client.   

4. Covenant on Use. Client agrees to use the Production only for lawful purposes, but in no event may the Client use the Production, or cause or allow the Production be used by another, for purposes of disparaging or bringing false light to any person, company, corporation, public entity, the Producer, or to any event, cause, enterprise, place or thing, whether depicted in the Production or not.   

5. Producer's Rights. Producer retains the right to use, in perpetuity and without limitation, all or any portion of the Production in Producer's own advertising and marketing efforts, its website, or in other websites, and by any means or in any materials by which Producer might promote its business. Producer shall have the right to make and keep duplicate copies of the Production and documents for its own file.  

6. Editorial control. The Client grants Producer full production and editorial control regarding all aspects of the Production. Producer makes no guarantees either expressed or implied in regard to the aesthetic qualities of the completed Production or in any particular effect, interview or special request therein. Producer has sole discretion as to whether any particular segment or event is recorded, or partially recorded, or made part of the edited master video/DVD.   

7. Restrictions. Restrictions imposed by others, including but not limited to photographers, religious organizations, venue rules, guests, the proximity of crowds, or willingness of others to cooperate with the Producer, and the constraints of the physical environment, including but not limited to safety, weather, power failures, venue size, fire, Acts of God, and other circumstances beyond Producer's control, can negatively affect the quality and extent of video coverage. Producer is not responsible for these occurrences, or for any deficiency or defect in the Production as a result thereof. Any re-shoot of video recordings because of these circumstances shall be at the request and expense of Client.  

8. Rescheduling. Producer may reschedule any video recording date as it deems necessary if adverse or undesirable conditions exist, including but not limited to, inclement weather, conditions likely to cause damage to video equipment, lack of access to, or hazards contained within locations or premises, conditions of  location or premises not ready to be filmed, no-show actors, Acts of God, illness, equipment failures or transportation problems. Producer is not responsible for any delays in Production caused by conditions beyond the control of Producer, which might not be reasonably avoided.  

9. Delivery of Production. The finished Production shall be mailed or delivered to the Client  from 1 to 20 weeks after the end of video/audio recording, depending on the amount of footage taken and the complexity of the Production. The delivery schedule as per the Service Agreement is only approximate, and, among other factors, is dependent upon Producer having received all production materials supplied by the Client for inclusion in the Production. An extended delivery schedule necessary for proper completion of the Production will not void the Video Production Service Agreement or the Terms of Service.  

10. Movement of Personal Items. If Producer is requested to shoot within the premises of a private home, business, or office, it is understood and agreed that Producer may temporarily move or relocate any furniture, objects, artworks, or other items as may be necessary or desirable, at Producer's sole discretion, to achieve appropriate footage, to avoid filming copyrighted items, or otherwise to produce the highest quality results.  Producer will return all items moved by Producer to their original positions after filming.  If, in Producer's judgment, any items should be moved that appear fragile, heavy, or of great monetary or sentimental value, Producer may request that such items be moved or relocated by the Client, or persons specifically designated or hired by Client to move such items.  Producer is not responsible for damage to any item moved or relocated either by Client, those designated or hired by client to move items, or the Producer.   In the event Client objects to the movement of items within the premises as Producer deems necessary, Producer may, at it's sole option, cancel the Video Production Service Agreement with Client, and be entitled to payment from Client under Paragraph 11 hereinbelow.  

11.  Payment for Services.
