If you intend to employ minors to work on your film, you must use another type of agreement and the legal guardian of the minor must sign on behalf of the minor. The agreement, which is generally one-sided, gives the manufacturer the exclusive right to make sustainable use of the image and image of miners. Of course, it is possible that children`s actors are in the SAG and, in this case, minors would be covered not only by the terms of the employment contract, but also by the rights and protection defined by the SAG rules. Therefore, this class of small players in SAG would require a more complex agreement. In addition, it is important to be aware of the rules provided in the specific state in which the film is shot. Some states, such as California, require a teacher to be recruited and to set a cap on the number of hours minors can work at any given time. Preproduction refers to the time of a film before production and filming begins, when the film`s directors complete the rights and script, obtain financing, assemble the cast and crew and prepare for production. The early stages of preproduction are often referred to as “development.” The development phase can take many years, as the rights are acquired and the occupation and crew are slowly assembled. The agreements that are often required during this period are those for acquiring rights, developing the script and adjusting the authors to finalize the script. Rights purchase contracts, option agreements, employment contracts or cooperation and co-production agreements are among the many types of contracts required to hire talented people to develop a production scenario.

In addition, the art of cinema involves many promises, transactions and commitments. It is very important that these relationships are regulated by law.

In addition to the agreements mentioned above, there are various other agreements, such as research contracts, casting and occupancy agreements, marketing agreements, lease work, investment agreements, etc. The modern film industry deals with many agreements for specific purposes. From cameramen to caterers, services are often documented. Several NOCs can be signed between authors and producers for the exploitation of intellectual property. In addition, many agreements are reached on the protection and licensing of IP rights. Confidentiality and confidentiality rules are part of almost all agreements, as confidentiality is of the utmost importance throughout the film`s production process. However, these agreements may and often are limited to some rights and may exclude others.
