Probably not a huge problem. My answer is to charge them nothing because you won't grant copyright, but 100% address their REAL concern: Because of their fame, they probably just want to protect the privacy of their footage. I'm a still shooter for wedding work, and this is what I tell my clients: I hold copyright on my work, but there's another side to the coin: I can guarantee in writing that I will never use the material for commercial or even simple promotional purposes (e.g., a blog post or showing the work to future prospective clients) without client consent. AND my clients can even have personal use to reproduce my copyrighted shots since I don't sell prints. (Also, I always include editing since I don't want my raw shots out there, but I appreciate that editing still shots is less time-instensive than editing lots of video footage.)
