Matchbox Productions will do their best to send you a preview of the video within 3-4 weeks after filming, and will endeavor to have the video finished within 1 month from filming, depending on reviews/amendments requested from The client and quality of video/footage, however this is not a guarantee.

The client must come prepared if they have high expectations for this.

The purchaser is entitled to all footage taken of the shoot if requested, there is a £200 charge to release all the footage to the client, however Matchbox Productions and the Director/ videographer involved must be accredited in the final video and if the footage is used elsewhere, as Matchbox Productions and the director involved hold all creative copyright on the original footage.
The purchaser agrees to allow Matchbox Productions to use the video footage, photographs and behind the scenes footage/photographs and final video for their own promotional activities including promotion on their show reel, websites, social media and video profiles including YouTube and Vimeo.
Matchbox Productions and the Director in charge of the shoot still have creative copyright on the original video and footage. If the video is tampered with and reclaimed by another person as their own, including any video footage/photos, this is copyright infringement and legal action will be taken.
For Music Videos, whichever Director worked on the video will be entitled to brand the video at the beginning with their name, under no circumstances should this be removed.
This is for any music videos that will be used online. If for example, a special requirement is that the name must be removed at the beginning for TV purposes, we are happy to supply a copy of the video for TV, in any format requested, without any branding for a small fee of £100. But all credits must be given to the Director at all times. If the client requests that the Directors name is completely removed from the final music video, for use online, TV and anywhere else there will be a cost of £500, however this does not mean that Matchbox Productions or the director has removed creative copyright, these terms of creative copyright ownership still belong to the Director and Matchbox Productions.
If the music video is found online without the Directors name present on the video, and this has not been agreed with Matchbox Productions or paid for, then Matchbox Productions can take legal action.
For any other type of videos including promo videos, interview videos, event videos etc we do not require that the Directors name is present at the beginning of the video. We only require that the company logo “ Matchbox Productions’ and contact information is stated at the end of the video, and given credit on any online or other viewing forums. This logo must not be removed from the video if being used online. However if the video is being used for TV, the logo can be removed by the client, or we can remove and send another version without the logo for a small fee of £50. All credits to ‘ Matchbox Productions’ must be given at all times.
