Covering Creator Expenses

If you are willing to cover production expenses that occur over the course of a Project, you may select this option when you create the Posting. Additionally, you may activate it at any time during the project from the Project page.

Any expenses that are to be added must be fully accounted for. Creators should keep all receipts and upload them to the "Details" tab within the project page. Following this, the expenses should be itemized and clearly described when entering them into the "Expenses" tab of the project page. This must be done before a project is marked as “Complete.”

All expenses that are approved when the client marks the project completed will be paid along with the price of the project itself. Expenses will be added to your project price and subject to our service fee.

The following are typically considered reimbursable “expenses”

  • Production costs such as the purchase and/or rental of equipment, locations, expendables, and other materials necessary for the production

  • Transportation costs such as mileage, gas, bridge and toll fees, parking, airplane tickets, luggage fees, and the like

  • Food and drink acquired for the shoot as craft services or as individual crew meals

  • The licensing of assets for post-production, including but not limited to: music, stock footage, and previously distributed or created works

The following are not considered reimbursable “expenses” and should instead be added to a project’s base price.

  • Subcontracted services for production support, whether on-set or off-set
    (camera assistants, translators, assistant editors, fixers, etc. that were separately hired by the contracted Glimmer creator)

  • Additional costs of labor from an extended production timeline, or from altered deliverables that were not originally detailed in the assignment description

  • Any performed labor or services rendered
