Im in the process of writing my short film. I put out a casting call and have recieved actors who are aware that they are working free. My plan is to have my cast meet and distribute the script for a read though. After they take home the script, I give them shoot dates and we begin filming.

1. Should I make them sign a release form? (if so what kind)
2. Any advice on the business process of a short film production

On any shorts I've been involved usually have a actor's engagement form, which outlines terms and the rights that you have to exploit the film.

The business process is the same as a feature film, all the paperwork is the same.
