The Nuts & Bolts of Screenwriter Agreements
With Gary G. Goldberger, Esq.
There are many different kinds of writer deals made: film, TV, established writer, new writer, guild, non-guild, etc. In this workshop, speaker Gary G. Goldberger will discuss and analyze the deal points involved in different kinds of agreements between writers and producers, from the perspective of both writers and producers.
Agreements and talking points include submission agreements, representation agreements, option/purchase agreements, for-hire writing agreements, collaboration agreements, source materials, copyright registration, and rights retention & reversion.
