SHOWREEL SPECIFIC - WE NO LONGER PRODUCE VIDEO SHOWREELS

  1. Round Island Showreels is run by The Actors Guild Limited. A not-for-profit company registered in England and Wales. Registered address: The Actors Guild Limited, High House Production Park, Vellacott Close, Off London Road, Purfleet-on-Thames, RM19 1RJ. Company number 7839251.

  2. In the event of a client "no show" or failure of the client to give Round Island 24 hours notice of their intent to cancel or postpone, a cancellation fee of £50 is payable.

  3. Round Island archive your showreel, however we cannot accept responsibility for loss, damage or theft of archived work.

  4. It is the sole responsibility of the client to make sure any necessary copyright clearance is obtained before the edit takes place. Copyright is a legal right which exists in literary, dramatic, artistic and musical works. It is only necessary if you lift words, music or footage directly from an existing piece of artistic work. In most cases, the producers of the work that you want to use will either have rights assigned to them or at least, a licence to the rights. Often original producers grant permission for you to use short clips free of charge. Under our terms and conditions you have full responsibility for clearing any copyright for material that you want edited or reproduced by us. Round Island will not be held responsible for any breaches in copyright.

  5. Our showreel streaming package has a one off set up fee of £30 followed by an annual £6 fee that covers upkeep, maintenance and rental of web space. We currently use Google Video to upload and embed video. This results in us being able to offer the service at a reduced rate. However because videos are hosted by a third party if their site experiences technical issues a video might become temporarily unavailable. Round Island will do all it can to help resolve such issues but ultimately can not be held responsible for third party websites.

VOICEREEL SPECIFIC

  1. Round Island Voicereels (now VOICEOVER KICKSTART) trades under the name Voiceover Kickstart Ltd.

  2. If a session is cancelled within 72 hours of the recording time, 50% of the full fee will be payable. This 72 hour period does not include weekends but only the normal working hours of Round Island Voicereels 10am - 6pm Mon to Friday inclusive. We resist charging the full fee like companies offering similar services. If the session is postponed and rebooked to another future date but we are still notified within 72 hours (again referring to working hours) then a reduced £75 studio fee will be chargeable (as the engineer and studio are booked and the slot cannot be filled at such notice). If a session is cancelled with less than 5 full days (again, working days) notice the client will forfeit their deposit. Rescheduled sessions will need to be booked and completed within two calendar months of the original date. Deposits for Gaming + Animation (character) reels are non-refundable.

  3. Payment for all voicereel services must clear within 3 business days of your appointment to avoid a late payment fee of £25. Clients will therefore need to pay by cash/PayPal or BACS after they have finished recording or after the session, but on the same day to avoid this charge. Please note tracks will only be released once payment has cleared.

  4. All material provided by the client must be free of copyright. If we are editing existing voice tracks where material was recorded off site it is the sole responsibility of the client to make sure any necessary copyright clearance is obtained before the edit takes place. Likewise it is the sole responsibility of the client to provide themselves with scripts that are not in breach of copyright or royalty laws. Copyright is a legal right which exists in literary, dramatic, artistic and musical works. It is only necessary if you lift words, music or footage directly from an existing piece of artistic work. Round Island will not be held responsible for any breaches in copyright.

  5. The standard price for a two hour session is £285. Any further recording time is charged at the half hourly rate of £25.

  6. The compilation track is an additional service that we include free of charge as part of the voicereel package. If for any reason a client wants their compilation reordered or reedited after its initial creation there is a fixed fee for the service. Contact us for more information.

  7. Wherever possible and specifically on the client's own website, Voiceover Kickstart Ltd should be credited with 'Voicereel recorded and produced by Guy Michaels'.
