Promptin' Circumstance Terms and Conditions
Negotiated days are defined as: the closest quarter hour the operator arrives on set to the closest quarter hour the operator leaves.
**LUNCH IS ON THE CLOCK** (if we're on the set, we're on the clock). For example, an 8 hour day is defined as 9am to 5pm regardless of breaks (unless a break -- off set -- is provided as 4 hours or more).
As soon as an operator arrives on set, whether he or she teleprompts, it is considered a full day and charged as such. This applies to rehearsal days and set up / strike days.
Operator Overtime 8 to 12 hours: SEE QUOTATION
Operator Double time 13 to 16 hours: per hr. SEE QUOTATION
PORTAL TO PORTAL / PARKING AND TOLLS:
Mileage - .52 per mile over 50 miles each way (jobs occurring 50 miles or more outside of the NY, LA or Las Vegas Metro areas)
The hourly rate will be charged as portal to portal, meaning as soon as the operator leaves his or her house, the clock starts. The clock stops when he or she returns home (if on the same day).
Parking / tolls - price varies, will be submitted by receipt
Per Diem (Can vary city to city) generally: $60.00
100% cancellation fee will apply if the job is cancelled 24 hours or less before the call time.
A 50% cancellation fee will apply if the job is cancelled between 24 and 48 hours notice.
***If a start time (call time) is NOT established within 24 hours of the shoot date, it is ASSUMED to be 9am (yes, we've run into this before).*** Therefore, if you do not establish a call time the day before a shoot and cancel at, say, 1pm that day, your production will be responsible for a cancellation fee.
Operators must have at least a half hour meal break every 6 hours from the established call time (either catered or walk away).
A meal penalty of $75 / operator per hour until meal is provided beyond 6 hours.
(example: If the call time is noon, there must be a break for food before 6pm. If a meal is provided at 8pm, a penalty of $150 will be assessed)
Meals do not count against the day (meaning a half hour meal will not be deducted from the 8 hour or 10 hour day).
A meal provided while work is being done (ie. a plate is made and brought to the prompter station) will be subject to a $50 penalty. The operator must be allowed a decent amount of time to finish said meal or, well... see above.
If an operator is called for the same client within eight hours of the end of the previous call for the same client, then the operator will be in short turnaround.
Short turnaround will continue until reset by nine hours off or the end of the final call for the client, whichever is sooner. (this includes the portal to portal time)
An operator on short turnaround will be paid at the overtime rate established (SEE QUOTATION)
PAYMENT: Payment is due within 30 days of the final day of the production. Overdue payment is subject to a monthly fee every 30 days beyond the due date.
We accept Checks and all major Credit Cards (at a fee of 2.75% the final invoice total if swiped on site. 3.5% if entered manually.)
