This is for any music videos that will be used online. If for example, a special requirement is that the name must be removed at the beginning for TV purposes, we are happy to supply a copy of the video for TV, at any format requested, without any branding for a small fee of £100. But all credits must be given to the Director at all times. If the client requests that the Directors name is completely removed from the final music video, for use online, TV and anywhere else there will be a cost of £500, however this does not mean that Halaqah Films or the director has removed creative copyright, these terms of creative copyright ownership still belong to the Director and Halaqah Films. If the music video is found online without the Directors name present on the video, and this has not been agreed with Halaqah Films or paid for, then Halaqah Films can take legal action.

This logo must not be removed from the video if being used online. However if the video is being used for TV, the logo can be removed by client, or we can remove and send another version without the logo for a small fee of £50.
