Finders Fee Exclusive
The Independent Filmmaker/Producer seldom have the funds to complete her/his Project. Financing Intermediaries, or Finders in the financial parlance, help the Filmmaker/Producer raise the necessary Project funding.
A Finder’s Fee is the compensation given to an intermediary in a business transaction. Such compensation is common in business and is regulated by contractual agreements and law.
This Agreement between the independent Finder and the Independent Filmmaker/Producer is drafted in plain English that is easy to read and comprehend. This is the “Short Form” of two pages and six clause legal Agreement. The Agreement may be filled in on your computer or printed out and filled in later.
We regularly receive feedback that we have successfully drafted our filmmaker contracts to be as complete as possible for all legal situations. However, should you experience a unique personal situation requiring the drafting of a special clause, please contact us at your convenience. Otherwise, you may be obliged to find a local entertainment lawyer experienced in the film making industry who will draft any and all other clauses for your Project’s unique situation or circumstance.
This Agreement is part of the Actor’s Deal, the Director’s Deal, and the Producer’s Deal, and the Investor’s Deal.
