Rates

ZSS offers flat daily and weekly rates for each service listed above.

Along with daily and weekly rates for individual services, ZSS also offers a flat-rate package (on a per-project basis) based on your budget for combining multiple services. This flat-rate is discounted for clients who wish to use ZSS exclusively for Audio Post-Production. Please contact ZSS for pricing details.

There are also special flat-rates for student filmmakers and ultra low-budget short films.

Payments may be made via PayPal, personal check, certified check, cash or money order. A receipt will be provided upon cash payment. When paying by personal check, no materials will be released until the check has cleared.

Regardless of payment method, final tracks will not be released until payment is received in full.

FTP Login

ZSS offers each client a unique FTP account with a personalized username and password to facilitate the transfer of large files typical of the Post-Production process. Please read the Terms of Use regarding your personal FTP account.

This FTP account will be made active upon receipt of 30% of the agreed upon rate for the project. It will remain active for 2 weeks after final delivery of all materials is made. It is the responsibility of the client to backup any desired files from the FTP before the account is deleted.

Visit our FTP page once you have your assigned login. Alternatively, you may download an FTP client to your computer such as Cyberduck or Filezilla for use of your FTP account. Some support will be provided by ZSS in setting up these applications, should you prefer to go this route.

Ultimately, if you do not wish to utilize secure FTP for transmission of your files, ZSS does maintain a Dropbox account for file transfers below 2GB in size, though files cannot be kept on the server as long as is possible with FTP. Also, the WeTransfer service is a great alternative.
