Re: Collaboration Agreement - Question!

My educated guess would be yes, if you're billing yourself as a team then you'd most likely get the same credit consideration. But to be fair, I've only worked in rooms where the writing teams were...

Re: If you have a manager and attorney, do you absolutely need an agent?

I donít know enough about your story so I canít really speak for or against it, but I will say that (in my opinion) the best action movies always come down to character. Die Hard, The Matrix, Fast...

Re: Austin 2019

Re: Different managers for different projects?

I can't think of a single manager who'd go for that arrangement. If a rep wants you in their stable - they'll want all of you. They need to make money off of all your projects, otherwise it isn't...

Re: Imagine Artist Management

Re: Looking for an agent

Sure, it's definitely not a hard rule. In fact, I'll slightly amend my last statement. OP should have at least 2 good script samples. They may not even need to show the second one. BUT if an agent or...

For OP, I think it also depends if itís a management company vs an agency...

Re: Release form - standard or concerning?

I actually don't think it looks too fishy - mostly standard language.
