Template contract for scriptwriters with an independent film company?Hi Shooters,
I have been writing short films for an independent production company for 5 years and things are starting to advance with them. They are currently seeking distributors and wish to use a feature film treatment, script and TV pilot that I wrote so they can market themselves.
However, I am reluctant to hand over my work as I would feel more comfortable if there was a contract set up between me and them outlining payment, rights etc. as I cannot continue working for free.
What tends to be in a writer's contract? Is there a standard fee or percentage writers are entitled to between independent production companies? Is there a template online I can find? Any information I would be very grateful for...
Many thanks for your help in advance.
