How to safely and politely secure rights for a self funded short?

I am finishing the principal photography of my first short film. almost a zero budget one but with a dedicated small crew of professionals. I am the producer"De facto" and the writer /director. I won't be the editor /sound designer/grading/music so that all the material is also in other hands until the last step of music will be completed.

I Have no experience in legal and not sure if is better to prepare a paper where I could write that every property or distribution rights is mine and than ask for a signature from the crew members, for example for festival submission, or possible screenings both in local communities and web or more where I could earn something...(who ever knows?)

How I'd have to proceed without being rude or unpolite with the crew that so kindly had decided to help me for free?

Thank you!
