Quotation Validity
Our quotations are valid for 10 working days. When a quotation is not accepted within 10 working days, Lukacz Creative can revoke the validity of a quotation in view of the availability of its teams. When a quotation is accepted or the service requested more than 10 days after the initial quotation date, discounts and bonuses that were part of the initial quotation are no longer applicable.
Quotations can be accepted up to 10 working days after their issuing date. Quotations that are accepted longer than 10 days after the date of issue may be subject to changes in pricing.
Production timeline
Pre-production of your video or web product will start upon full proposal approval. A proposal approval procedure consists of the following steps :
- the customer will sign the quotation document and return the signed document via email to Lukacz Creative
- Lukacz Creative will issue a deposit invoice for 40% of the total production budget
- Lukacz Creative will receive the deposit payment and launch pre-production, lock in production dates and start the project.
- Within 20 days after a Quotation has been accepted, arrangements will be made between Lukacz Creative and the customer to plan and lock in the production dates, as well
as post-production deadlines.
- When production dates are locked in, the customer agrees to arrange locations, spokespeople, content and props as outlined in the pre-production consultancy.
To guarantee clear communication Lukacz Creative require that you choose one contact person within your organisation to discuss the production. Lukacz Creative will only accept input,
feedback and comments from the agreed contact. Input and feedback from other spokespeople in your organisation will be channeled through your chosen production contact.
All revision requests, comments and feedback are to be supplied in a written form via email (Email address provided before the start of the project, alternatively info @lukaczcreative.com can be used), with clearly stating and describing required changes, accompanied with a video time code where possible.
Number of revisions will be clearly stated in your quotation.
A revision round reqiores the customer to provide feedback and revision requests in a written form before the date agreed on in the quotation and in the contract and no later than within 20 business days. All these required changes have to be stated in one email, with clear description of required changes, accompanied with video time code whenever possible.
Lukacz Creative then commits to address these changes and requests in it's entiriety or as much as possible.  If customers requires more than agreed number of revisions, additional fees may be applicable per each additional revision round.
Lukacz Creative recognizes than video production is a subjective medium and an artistic license is required for every project. Whilst all efforts are made to meet artistic vision of the client, Lukacz Creative reserves the right to refuse to attend to requests that are unclear, not possible, not reasonable, not applicable or are not within the agreed scope of the project.
Cancellations and Force Majeure
In case the customer cancels the shooting that was planned for a certain date, he/she will first try to accommodate Lukacz Creative to reschedule the shooting to another date.
In case the customer cancels the shooting 5 business days or less before the agreed shooting date, a cancellation fee of $500 ex GST will be applicable and will be added to the total project cost.
The customer will then work out a new shooting date based on availabilities offered by the Lukacz Creative team.
In case of total cancellation, the deposit will always be allocated to cover pre-production, project admin and cancellation fees.
In case Lukacz Creative has to cancel the shooting the team will first try to reschedule the shooting to another date. In case your shooting can not be scheduled or produced, or in case of a technical breakdown causing the accidental loss or non-recording of unique footage, Lukacz Creative will return your deposit and you agree that no other claims will apply to Lukacz Creative, its staff, partners or subcontractors. In case of a Force Majeure, a technical breakdown, a loss of footage and/or cancellation by Lukacz Creative for organisational, staffing or logistical reasons, both parties agree not to submit any damage claims and not to undertake any legal action or claim against the other party.

Feedback timeframes
Upon reception of your preview, you agree to deliver feedback within 10 business days. This is required for us to deliver a finished product. Failing to provide feedback within 10 business days after reception of the preview link will lead to extra
administration fees, with a minimum applicable fee of 10% of the total project cost.
Failing to provide feedback within 25 business days, may lead to considering the project as completed and closed without any change requirements and Lukacz Creative may require a full payment for the completed project.
Final Delivery

Payment Delays
Should our team agree to a delivery before payment of the end balance, then you as a customer agree to pay the remaining balance within 5 working days after delivery of the final product. It is agreed that after the due date marked on the balance invoice, failure to pay the balance invoice within 5 working days will incur an administration fee of $100 per an invoice reminder (sent every 14 working days) and a penalty interest rate of maximum 7% of the total production value per 30 calendar days after the due date included in the invoice.
Upon reception of the payment in full, you obtain the right to use your video content online and offline. Unless otherwise specified the creative copyright of the produced video content remains property of Lukacz Creative and a user licence without any restrictions is granted to you as a customer.

as an extra service when the project is being approved. Additional services may include archiving a copy of all master and project files, or supplying a hard drive to the customer containing these files.

The client is required to report any errors found in the ‘final draft copy’ within seven (7) days.
