Description
"The Film and TV Actor's Pocketlawyer" is an educational handbook for actors to use and reference whenever they are presented with an underlying contract for a talent management deal, a talent agency deal, a series regular role for a television show, or a speaking role for a major independent or motion picture film and the book is organized into six helpful chapters: Chapter One: The Talent Management Agreement. Chapter Two: The Talent Agency Agreement. Chapter Three: First Television Series Regular Role. Chapter Four: First Major Indie or Motion Picture Role. Chapter 5: SAG-AFTRA FAQs. Chapter 6: Spearheading Your Own Projects. The first four chapters summarize the most important areas to look out for when negotiating and signing certain agreements commonly signed by actors, while also providing general industry standard norms and tips to be aware of as they pertain to each area. And the last two chapters address commonly asked questions regarding basic SAG-AFTRA actor rights, and the dos and donts when actors spearhead their own small writing and/or film projects. Although there many legal handbooks out there in the market for music industry folk and filmmakers to use and quickly reference, there are absolutely none for the actor. As such, this legal and educational handbook was created for the actor in mind.
