If the producer wishes to edit a film image for distribution on DVD, basic cable, nationally or during the flight, you must be informed of the time to be added or deleted and any changes to the lateral relationship, and you must modify the new version or be consulted on the changes in the same way that you would modify them or be consulted in connection with changes for the television. (7-509 (g)) Any difference of opinion regarding the provisions of this paragraph 7-404 may be subject to arbitration, but the employer should not be prevented from completing the work in question. In determining this dispute, the arbitrator is guided by the fact that the parties have agreed that this is a list of circumstances that cannot reasonably be anticipated prior to the start of the main photograph and which can serve as the basis for the extension of the second unit during the main photograph. This list is not intended to make these circumstances exhaustive. When a theatre film is authorized by the employer for the exhibition on a national basic cable service, in New Media, for national air shows or for the national distribution of videodisc/videocassettes, and the employer publishes such a film image in its own facilities in the United States, the director has the right to treat the English version of the film image without additional compensation. The above publishing fee for basic cable exposure is limited to the first exposure on a basic wiring service and does not include processing that complies with standards or thought requirements.

In the event that a second unit work is envisaged, the director has the opportunity to consult with the individual manufacturer and to participate in a reflection on the person who will be responsible for the management of this work of the second unit. In the event of disagreement between the employer and the director on the choice of the person to be recruited as the director of the second unit, the employer presents the Director with a list of three (3) qualified persons, one of whom (1) would be admitted as director of the second unit, and the director is required to approve one (1) of these three (3) persons. The director sees the sequences assembled as soon as the editor has compiled them according to the director`s instructions during the shooting of the image, provided that this does not delay the time and preparation of the composition of the sequences.
