Charges & Requirements
Once we know what services you require, a detailed quotation will be sent to you for approval.
All third party expenses for services not directly offered by A to Z Solutions (such as accommodation, flights, licenses, fees and customs/clearing costs) will include a handling fee of 15%. This covers taxes, and a small administration fee.
A non-refundable engagement fee of USD 500 will be required in order to commence services. This will be deducted from the final fixing fee. Prior to travel and upon the acceptance of the quotation 50% of all fixing fees (less the USD 500 engagement fee) as well as all Third Party costs must be paid in full ahead of travel in order to secure services. The balance, as well as any incidental costs incurred and agreed upon during the shoot will be paid within 7 days of completion of filming.
Customers are paying for an all-inclusive service that will ensure a seamless and efficient production experience in Zambia. With A to Z Solutions buying power, we are able to offer competitive rates for all services, as well as invaluable advice and networking opportunities.
