Well, I recently graduated from school and am doing more and more freelance work as a DP but most has been unpaid so I haven't worried too much about contracts. But as I start to work with new directors and producers whom I have never met nor worked with before I want to get a contract template together for myself.
I'm doing a lot of free DP work now, and was looking for some help into what I should include in the contract.
What I'm currently looking at is...
- duration of project
- notification of dates for reshoots
- crew, equipment, labs, etc. selection
- working on the color correction
- DVD copy as well as HD version of selects for reel
- meal plans plus penalties (second meal, etc.)
What else should I have included in the contract? I'm also going to be putting together contracts for my crew just to protect them as most of my crew that I use regularly have a lot less experience working on larger sets than I do, so I want to make sure they don't get screwed over.
