Anyone have any examples of Deal Memos that they use when they are serving in the role of cinematographer. I am about to start a shoot and was looking at a copy of the deal memo given to me by production and it was rather generic. Lately I have been working primarily as a gaffer, so the deal memos usually don't bother me, but in this case, as I am now cinematographer, I wanted a bit more say in the matter. Wanted to lay out a few things not mentioned, including use of the footage for reel and promotional use, right to be included in the post process, etc. Also, when working on a pitch project, some sort of "right of first refusal" if the show were to get picked up as a feature length film. I know that gets tricky, but wanted to see if anyone else had done anything. Or even better, if anyone had copies of their deal memos they would be willing to send me?
Let me know
