We are really pleased to share with our members our latest standard agreement.
We have designed the Standard Feature Film Editing Agreement to establish fair terms and conditions between editors and producers.
Now available to members under Resources. Please make sure that you read and understand the Guild’s accompanying advice before using the standard agreement:
Before using it, please read ALL of the agreement carefully so that you understand it.
It is made available in MS Word format so that you can enter the basic information and present it to the engager (producer).
In negotiating your terms and conditions with the engager, you or they will insert or change the text and or terms and conditions of the agreement. Such changes will vary the document away from this standard agreement template. You MUST ALWAYS note where those changes are made and understand them, as they could weaken your terms and conditions. The Track Changes function in MS Word is useful for this but you or the engager may not use it.
Before signing your agreement, make a FULL AND DETAILED comparison against the standard agreement so that you know where any changes have been made.
