Note: REVISIONS vs Edit Error

This note has been prepared just to clarify a few aspects in regards to our editing work for any old, current or future customers using our services.

As you read your package description booked with us (WHP) or the contract between you (the customer) and us (WHP) you will notice that none of the packages when it comes to edited products include EXTRA REVISIONS or CUSTOMERS REQUESTS.

We are trying to edit in our own style based on the footage captured on your day following the contract and the package description. Unfortunately we can not read customers minds and edit as they wish. Making changes to an edited video as requested by a customer require extra time and obviously extra payment. No one would like to work a few extra hours in the factory free of charge as far as we are concerned. If you wish to edit in your own style (no problems at all) simply purchase the unedited footage from us (current price £200) and hire another editor or edit in your own time.

Re-editing/ adjusting your edited video because of an error/s it is included in all the packages indeed and will be fixed at no extra costs. However errors doesn’t mean the same thing with making revisions or apply special request to your edited videos. Errors are completely something else and we will attach a few editing errors as a sample guide below for anyone to see.

Revisions or Requests to your edited videos are not free of charge and samples will be also listed below for you all to see. Whenever we have to make a revision or apply a special request to an edited video will lose a minimum of 2x hours or more out of our usual working day. This revisions or requests will create delays for other customers waiting their edited product and is not fair on us as a business working free of charge.

 

ERROR’s Samples:

 

The Sound during Ceremony or Speeches it is out of sync.

Picture goes black for few seconds during the video (exception when we applied fade in and fade out as part of the editing style).

Title is not spelt correctly.

Part of our wedding day missing i.e. a chapter has not been included into the final version video.

 

REVISION’s & CUSTOMERS REQUEST’s Samples:

 

Change of music choice or change the order of the music choice.

Change the music for Highlights.

Cut out parts of the Speeches.

Everything not included in the Error’s Samples List means Revisions or Requests which is not free of charge.

 

Revisions and Requests starts from £35ph and can go up to hundreds of pounds depending on your requests and our time required in front of the PC to complete the task/s. If you still needs additional clarification please private message our page or send us an email and will try to offer you more support.

Many Thanks

“WHP”
