Additional Fees/Usage Fees
An additional fee will be negotiated if video (or portions of video) that embodies performer's likeness is used for commercial, television, film, dvd, concert tour usage, Netflix, Hulu, YouTube/YouTube Red, Vevo, social media or any other promotional media.  
Usage fees are calculated based on the total budget of the video.  Usage fees include all ancillary usage for music videos including documentary, "making of" specials, dvds, film trailers, social media/online footage, or concert tour usage.  Usages excluded from this fee are product-related commercial usage, usage that falls under union jurisdiction (such as the use of music video within a feature film, non-promotional television program, etc.)  print usage (including, but not limited to cover art) and "lifts" into other titled music videos.  This also includes any medium now known or created in the future.
*Please be aware that usage fees do not happen all of the time, and when received, usage fees may vary for non union work.*
With the increase in reality/documentary styled filming, please be aware:
*Behind the scenes footage, or any filming/taping must be cleared and negotiated in advance of cameras rolling tape or film*
*Always contact your agent before signing any release form*
