CANCELLATION In the event of a postponement or cancellation of this contract, so long as a minimum of thirty days notice has been given to Studio, the deposits paid may be used for any future event up to one year past the date of this contract, providing Gippos Video Studio has no other obligations for the future date. After that time, all deposits will be forfeited to Studio.
If Client gives less than thirty days written email or certified mail notice of cancellation or postponement, a $250 Cancellation Fee will be charged plus trip fees, if any trips have already been made.
If event is canceled after Gippos Video Studio arrives at location on the date of the rehearsal or event, the deposit and payment of first half of total fee will be considered “earned”, but the last half of total (if already paid) will be refunded.
CHANGES The Client has had opportunity to critically view samples of the Studio’s video work only online by his request and has retained the Studio as the exclusive official videographer to cover this event. The Client grants Gippos Video Studio full production and editorial control regarding all aspects of this production and post-production.
Client may request one set of changes, upon viewing on-line full wedding video. If such changes require more than one hour of editing time, such extra time shall be billed at $99 per hour. Such changes must be requested by email or other written form, within 72 hrs of receipt of approval video.
Studio takes utmost care with respect to the exposure, sound capture, editing, duplication and delivery of the video products and services offered.

Production may proceed without such materials if not supplied by this time and Client agrees to accept the necessary changes in the production as a result.
