Hey guys, found this crew deal memo deep in my hard drive and thought you all might like it for your current or future projects. Please do not share this, if someone wants it please direct them here to download for free. If you want to skip this information I am about to write and just download the contract, just look at the bottom of this post and click download.

So what is a crew member contract and why is it important? First off having contracts for anyone you deal with is highly recommended at all times. While at first you might just be dealing with your friends and family in your films you will at some point end up dealing with people you do not know. Well these people must all be great perfect people right? Well I would like to think that as well, but that is not the case, hand shake deals are no longer appropriate for this day n' age. Keep in mind that just because you have a contract for your crew members does not mean you do not trust them, it is a matter of liability and it is good business practice to get used to. I receive contracts all the time and I have signed NDA's lots as well, I do not look at the person and say "You don't trust me?" No, matter of fact I even have more respect for that person as I know that they have a general knowledge of business and how to reduce their own liability. So bottom line is, be sure to have your butt protected with a simple easy to edit Crew Member Contract for all of your films.

If you need help with how or what to edit, just leave a reply :)
