View Full Version : Writer/Producer contract


Scale Plus Points

I was hired to adapt a short story into a screenplay. We have a contract, which is fine, but now the underlying rights holder (the guy who hired me and owns the rights to the short story) has asked me to help him produce the project. My question is: Where do you think I could find a sample contract/deal memo/letter of intent (preferably something simple - a one sheet of some kind) that I can use as a model for my own contract. As you may have guessed I don't have the money for a lawyer and would really like to keep this simple, even if it only hits the main points, and the rest is "to be negotiated in good faith when x...".
Any thoughts?

Mark Litwak's books have been helpful for me.
