I currently work as a web developer, but have recently set up a small production company on the side.

I've secured my first project and sourced a crew. Before the project begins, I need to create a contract between myself and the client.

I'm finding it difficult to source a good general contract for video production that I can amend. Can you recommend where I can find such a contract or whether I should write one from scratch? I'm happy to pay for this.


Writing one yourself is never a good idea. If you're willing to pay, why not hire a lawyer?

There are places on the net where you can find boilerplate, for example FilmContracts and FilmMakerIQ, but if there's real money involved your smartest move is to get local legal advice.
