I just had a very bad experience shooting a student film. I worked as a DP and after few days of very badly prepared shoot, misunderstandings with a director, production collapsed. I was blamed for it. It is a long story so I am not expecting you to judge if I was to blame for it or not. Everything happened in very uncivilized way. I was not payed the money I was supposed to be payed.

Anyway, my question is: what happens to the footage I shot? Can I request it and use it for my reel? What kind of rights to it do I have? What if it is gonna be used without giving me a credit? Etc.

Anybody have a similar bad experiences?

Of course, me naive, I have no contract signed of any kind.

Thank you,

Just a shooter
