Terms & Conditions
Please take a moment to review our standard policies.
Pelicula Media agrees to rent the premises (agreed upon booking) to Renter for any future agreed upon reservation date and beginning/ end times booked and paid for in advance.
Renter agrees to abide by all the Pelicula Media Studios policies listed below.
Rental times are pre-arranged at the time of booking. Rental time begins promptly at the designated starting time and ends promptly at the designated ending time. Reservation time must include set up, break-down, and clean up. The property must be cleaned and vacated by the end of the rental period. Set up and breakdown times must fall within the total reservation period reserved. It is the responsibility of Renter and its Vendors to set up, breakdown, and move equipment and other items within the Studio.
In order to confirm and hold a reservation, all rental fees must be paid in full at the time of booking. In the case of additional equipment rental added on the shoot day, the rental fee must be paid by credit card or cash deposit at the time of rental.
An overtime fee will automatically be charged to the card on file at a rate of $10 for every 5 minutes over the designated rental end time. This also applies to rental start times. You may arrive up to 10 minutes early, but please be mindful of the reservation wrapping up ahead of you. If you arrive more than 10 minutes early, you will not be allowed to enter the studio space until 10 minutes before your reservation time. If you enter the studio more than 10 minutes ahead of schedule, the card on file will be charged the overtime fee rate listed above.
Renter can reschedule/ Cancel reservations up to 24 hours prior to the start of rental period and receive a credit to use towards a future rental with no additional charge.
No refunds will be provided for cancellations. Your reservation credit will expire in 90 days. If the renter cancels or reschedules less than 24 hours from the start of the rental period, no credits or refunds will be offered. Please note, this includes reschedules / cancellations for any reason including the photographer or videographer’s client having cancelled their shoot and cancellations due to illness including Covid-19.
Upon cancellation, you will receive a credit for the quantity of hours booked or the dollar amount purchased for 4-HR, 6-HR or 8-HR reservations that can be applied towards a future reservation.
We ask that you assume responsibility for returning the studio to its original condition and be courteous of those using the studio before and after you. This includes but not limited to discarding the trash, props returned to original locations, and messes cleaned up. Renter agrees to dispose of smaller trash items in the provided trash cans, discard larger bulkier trash items in the back-parking lot dumpster and clean up any messes that occur during their rental period.
Pets are allowed in the studio, and we do ask that you bring appropriate cleaning supplies for any messes or hair left by the pet.
If the Studio is not in the same condition when rented, Renter agrees to pay, as applicable a minimum of a $150.00 cleaning fee (based on the amount of time required to clean the Studio at a rate of $100 per hour).
