Film Shoots T’s & C’s
  • A standard 12 hours for a full day and 6 hours for a half day is applicable.
  • Crew on set is limited to 30 people.
  • 10 vehicles are permitted on location.
  • A reasonable grace period of 2 hours is permissible (one hour prior to and one hour after the shoot has ended)      for full day and half day shoots. This is to accommodate the setting up and wrapping up of the shoot, calculated  from the first man on set to the last man off location. In effect the total time could extend to 14 hours (full day) and eight hours (half day) including the grace period.
  • Overtime fees apply once the time on set exceeds 14 hours (full day) and eight hours (half day). The fee per hour is determined as a percentage of the full day location fee. This rate applies to both half day and full day film shoots.
  • A 10% overtime fee will be charged from 14 - 16 hours (full day) and 8 - 10 hours (half day).
  • A 20% overtime fee will be charged per hour from 16 hours (full day) and 10 hours (half day).
  • On confirmation of a booking, Houghton View will provide the Production Company with any rules and regulations pertaining to Houghton View Guest House
  • The Production Company is responsible to ensure that the production managers are aware of the location rules and that these are respected.
  • If it is deemed that the location is being used for more than the pre-arranged booking (ie: two photographers on set / many more than 15 people on a stills shoot) then an increased fee will be charged. This fee is over and above the initial location fee and excludes the applicable transgression fee.
  • No smoking or drinking of alcohol is allowed anywhere on the location.
  • Cancellation of confirmed bookings must be in ratio to the booking time period. For example, if a client books a  location for two days then the booking must be cancelled prior to 48 hours from the first booking date.
  • If the booking is cancelled within the prescribed notice period then a 50% cancellation fee will apply for the entire booking period which was cancelled.
  • If the Production Company cancels within 24 hours of a one day booking, then a 50% cancellation fee will be charged.
  • Should a confirmed booking be cancelled more than 24 hours before a shoot, and Houghton View is unable to re-book the Location, a cancellation fee of 50% will be charged.
  • Should the team not arrive on set for the day that the shoot was booked, a 100% cancellation fee will be charged
  • Payment is due on the day of making the reservation with Houghton View Guest House.
