GUIDELINES & ELIGIBILITY
Effective Jan 1/2016
In an effort to help support the talent of our customers, as well as making our contribution to Public Service Announcements, Affiliated Equipment makes the following offer of PSA/Spec days to those eligible.
WHAT IS CONSIDERED AS PSA/SPEC SPOT
A project that has either minimal or no funding, where virtually everyone and everything is being donated for free. It is not a job with an impoverished budget or a job where someone simply doesn’t want to pay for equipment. Rule of thumb is, if others are being paid, we would like to be paid as well. And if others are working at reduced rates it is only fair that we share in whatever funds are available.
Any and all customers whose payment for work with AE, over the previous 12 months, exceeded $100,000 are eligible for 2 PSA/SPEC base days.
Included in these days: Package truck (ten ton combo truck or smaller), Camera Package (with S4 or Ultra Prime Lenses and one zoom, Generator, Dolly and Some Additionals (within reason, when available ), Overnight Parking and Cage Access.
Note: that any significant a la carte Truck or Camera orders are considered equivalent to prescribed packages.
Everything is subject to availability and occasionally last minute substitutions will have to be accommodated.
Not included in these days: all hard costs such as Fuel for generator, Truck Driver, Sub rentals and Expendables (Gels, Tapes, Foamcore etc…).
All AE equipment must be handled by experienced and competent technicians.
Any further spec day/s requests approved (entirely at the discretion of AE).
Conditions For Additional Days:
If you require a prescribed package, only CCS and CCXL will be offered without charge. All other truck packages or substantial a la carte L&G equipment orders (more than a few items), will be charged a flat fee of $400. Only one (1) Arri Alexa Classic or Red Epic Dragon, (with S4 or Ultra Prime lenses) camera package will be offered without charge. Any other camera packages or bodies will be charged a flat fee of $400. These charges are to offset labour, materials, wear and tear (including bulb burn) and maintenance costs.
The total cost of equipment and services requested on additional days may not in total exceed 5% of your previous 12 month’s payments*.
*For clarity, during the prior 12 month period, at the time of your request, you have been invoiced and have paid AE an amount, for services supplied, for example $100,000, you may receive a maximum of $5,000 credit towards additional PSA days (the value of any other additional days already used will be subtracted from this credit).
Included in these additional days: CCS or CCXL Package truck, one (1) Arri Alexa Classic or Red Epic Dragon Camera Package (with S4 or Ultra Prime Lenses and one (1) zoom), Generator, Overnight Parking and Cage Access.
Not included in these additional days: Dolly, Any Additionals, and all hard costs such as Fuel for generator, Truck Driver, Sub rentals, Expendables (Gels, Tapes, Foamcore etc…).
Without exception, no production company will be supported with a PSA/Spec day unless the following terms and conditions are accepted:
– The Executive Producer must sign the request directly.
– The request must be submitted 5 days before shoot date.
– Any request must be approved and signed by Ross Mclean directly.
– All accounts must be in good standing, not be in arrears.
**Please note that after-hours entry will not be available for PSA/Spec days, unless the person/s actually doing the pick-up or drop-off are pre-approved by AE.
