Most of the animated books I`ve read leave out one of the most important things an animator needs to know: How to make a deal! Do you really need a lawyer? Here are some examples of how you can do it yourself and keep your own. There are a variety of ways in which an independent animator or filmmaker can become. If you get involved with a real expert, there may be no escape. But a well-written agreement can save you in most cases. Decide for yourself if you need a lawyer, but legal eagles usually fly high and need a lot of fortified dollars to keep them in the air. I may be lucky, but I`ve done better with the contracts I`ve designed myself. A lawyer has enough hub to make a contract thicker than your feature film script, and you probably won`t understand most of them. From my experience with vampire producers, I`ve reduced the essential armor plate to a few pages – often a single page – with the essentials all there. However, each project is different in one way or another, so what I present to you here are just examples that can be adapted to your case.
