DIRECTOR'S AGREEMENT CHECKLIST

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. 

 

Director’s Agreements can seem simple, but there are a lot of subtle differences between a good Director’s Agreement and a generic services agreement converted to be used to engage a Director.  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.
