editing feedback and changes are made to the first draft of your Highlight Reel,

days after delivery of the second draft of your Highlight Reel, then Bella Pictures

filmmaker's schedule permits, s/he will do so but please note, for the first hour
you will be charged an overtime rate of $200/hour. If you request more than 1 hour
of overtime, you will be charged the coverage price that is closest to the total
