Where a director is involved in a production, a Directors Agreement will be needed to set out the director's services.
When producing a film or television program, there will undoubtedly be a Director involved. It’s always best to have a Director’s Agreement in place before entering the pre-production stage, so that all issues including approvals, deliverables and payments are discussed and settled before everyone gets to work. It’s important for the Director and Producer(s) to have their relationship or arrangement set out in writing, to avoid disputes before, during or after the filming and editing stages of production.
If you need a Director’s Agreement, fill out the checklist below and we’ll be able to start working on an agreement for you. If you can’t answer certain questions, that probably means you need further advice, so just put ‘I don’t know’ or get in touch!
