10

The talent acknowledges the fact that he/she will not be remunerated as long as the film director and his crew have not been paid for the production of the documentary film. The talent may however expect some financial reward should the documentary film be aired below its production costs.

Remuneration for the shooting of video footage with the talent takes into account the following:

The documentary film will not be aired or released for distribution without satisfying the talent's financial expectations. Should the latter prove to be excessive the film director reserves the right to cut out sequences involving the talent even if he/she had approved the pre-release of the documentary film except in the circumstances evoked in pt. 10.

[top]

13

Commercial use of the documentary film induces drawing up another contract which will specify terms unsolved under pts. 9-10-11-12.

[top]

The talent certifies that he/she is over eighteen years of age and is competent to contract in his/her own name insofar as the above is concerned.
