Law/Patents - Law: Contract(s) / 联合制作合同
Chinese term or phrase: 重要
The first part of the sentence below seems inconsistent with the rest of the sentence, and I find the choice of words (应该, 重要) equally strange.

Thanks for your help.

Priority ought to be given to


Explanation:
Priority ought to be given to the creative budget (创作费用). I cannot tell if the creative budget and the planned overall production budget (计划中的联合制作预算) are independent of each other.

More crucial


Explanation:
See explanation at the discussion panel above.

The key is to make the parties concerned that no extra money will be available from the joint production budget should any creative cost will incur . This is the intent of the clause. The translation must reflect this.
