LICENSING
Consider sharing the licensing rights to the material. Depending on the nature of the production we can grant a license to use the material on a limited basis. If the material has potential value to other clients then we can also consider a licensing arrangement.

ALL PRICES NEGOTIABLE
All services provided directly by Alt Gobo are negotiable. Third party hires, rentals, and expenses are non-negotiable. Any reasonable offer will be considered. Please bear in mind that any job not paying the full rate can be cancelled at any time when another client makes a firm offer for more money.

DEFERRED PAYMENT
In select circumstances consider a deferred payment plan. Services are provided at full price but payments can be due at a date well in the future or project milestone. Deferred payments do accumulate a finance charge so it will cost more the longer a client chooses to delay payment. This is available only for Alt Gobo resources. Services provided by third parties (crew, talent, music, services, equipment rental, special gear/software/prop/costume purchases) will have to be paid for immediately and can be done directly or through Alt Gobo with a 20% service charge.
