An Independent Filmmaker, (a.k.a. the Producer of a/your Project), may require a Group for the Project. This may involve a few to several hundred Group Participants. As the Producer and staff will not necessarily know any of the Group Participants this Agreement is drafted fairly comprehensively.
Signing this contract the Group Participant is assigning any and all Rights to their performance over to the Producer.
This Agreement between the Group Participant and the Producer is drafted in plain English that is easy to read and understand. This is a five page, sixteen clause legal document. All Group Participants can sign the same Agreement. The Agreement may be filled in on your computer or printed out and filled in later.
