The INto INdustry Programme : Terms and Conditions for Programme Participants

 

 

Participation

 

1 year Programme

 

Participants must commit to a minimum of 20 hours of training and production activities per week over the duration of the 12 month programme.  Extra tasks will be available for any participants able to contribute beyond these hours and availability should be discussed in the weekly production meeting. Participants failing to meet their 20 hours without acceptable justification will be asked to attend a meeting with production coordinators to develop a plan to improve the situation. Following this meeting, if a student is recognised to be failing to participate for these 20 hours on 3 more separate occasions, they could be asked to leave.

1 month Intensive Programme

 

Participants must commit to a minimum of 36 hours of training and production activities per week over the duration of the 1 month programme.  Extra tasks will be available for any participants able to contribute beyond these hours and availability should be discussed in the weekly production meeting. Participants failing to meet their 36 hours without acceptable justification will be asked to attend a meeting with production coordinators to develop a plan to improve the situation. Following this meeting, if a student is recognised to be failing to participate for these 36 hours on 2 more separate occasions, they could be asked to leave.

 

Part-time work outside the programme

 

1 year Programme

 

We seek to encourage and enable people from all types of economic backgrounds to participate, and as a result have created a flexible working timetable to allow people to take on part time jobs to support themselves during the programme.  However, participants are recommended to take on no more than 20 – 22 hours per week in other part time employment for the duration of the programme.* Students working for more than 20 – 22 hours who are failing to meet their programme commitments could be asked to reduce their working hours to 20 – 22 in order to fulfil their learning and training experiences on the programme.  

 

*From regular research we’ve found that this number of hours, even in lower paid sectors, is sufficient for participants to cover all costs of living in Barcelona, during the programme.

 

1 month Intensive Programme

Given the Intensive nature of the programme, any participant who intends to undertake non-programme related part-time work, should provide details to OTOXO’s directors and reach an agreement on the quantity of hours, and maintaining programme commitments.  

 

Intellectual property:

 

1 year programme: The ownership of the documentary made by programme participants and OTOXO during the 12 month of the programme is shared equally between OTOXO and all programme participants. This documentary is defined by its duration and content as projected in the public screening on the final day of production. Any profits generated by the film are split 50 / 50 between OTOXO Productions and programme participants.  

 

Participants cannot at any time, present the film as their own individual work, without acknowledging other co-directors.

 

Participants cannot at anytime, make alterations to this film in any form and present it as their own, individual work.

 

During the process of research and selection of final film, a number of further ideas will be shortlisted and not developed into into a film – These unselected subject matters will remain the shared property of OTOXO Productions and all participants for the duration of the programme, and participants will have the opportunity to develop them further during phase two of the programme*. During this time, the directors of OTOXO Productions can choose to join the production as advisors, executive producers, or co-directors, depending on specifics of the subject matter. At the end of the programme, all contacts/potential projects found during initial research will remain in OTOXO’s bank of gatekeepers, but participants can approach OTOXO at anytime to discuss the development of a co-production.

*Should a separate INto INdustry group find the same potential subject matter independently prior to the final three months of production, OTOXO reserves the right to proceed with this potential subject matter, granting equal research credits, and recognition, to all relevant participants.

 

For any further commissions or co-productions of any length, which stem directly from the film created during the programme, which are secured following the completion of the 12 month programme: Any work required will be conducted by OTOXO Productions and, when required for larger scale developments, will be supported by selected members of the original production team of programme participants.  Payment rates for additional work will be paid at the industry standard in Barcelona at the time of the work.
