MINIMUM RATES ONLY:
The rates in this rate card are minimum rates only. We are free to negotiate rates with producers/ advertisers in excess of the rates set out herein, provided that where a single television track is intended to run with different tags (as defined) in a large national campaign that is substantial in nature and there are to be multiple tags produced in one session, then we may negotiate rates other than those set out in this rate sheet.

“Submission” is defined as a recording where a performer is asked to voice a proposed script for a commercial for demonstration purposes only. A submission track may be broadcast provided a final/ broadcast fee is paid. If a track is a submission, this must be notified to us at the time of booking otherwise the full fee is payable.
