If you hire a videographer to film your wedding or event, you should ask people a few questions before hiring them. They want to make sure that the filmmaker can deliver the desired results and that they are easy to work with. Besides the fact that they are available if you need them, you can also ask them: Subcontractor understands that all video orders in which the subcontractor has shot and/or edited a studio video are used by Studio for the promotion and development of the studio business. I am shocked by the number of small entrepreneurs and filmmakers I talk to, who do not have contracts or who do not have all the clauses they should have in the contracts they establish. If you think that describes you, let`s fix it. Have you ever signed a lease or sales contract for a piece of property, and you had to start each page and even a few important paragraphs (such as the paragraph on each asbestos removal). The purpose of these initials is clear. Everyone knows that people tend to skip contracts, so the initialization of certain paragraphs requires the party concerned to declare that they have read these important clauses unequivocally. They do not want poor communication on issues such as copyright, use or, most importantly, timelines. If it takes me 60 days to deliver the project, I don`t want a client to call me a week later to ask where the project is. It should be noted that even if you have a subcontracting agreement in place, if in practice the IRS determines that an “entrepreneur” is really an employee, you could be for thousands of dollars in employment taxes and penalties on the bar.
The things they look at are whether the contractor works in your office or not, how much you say in how they have to do their job, whether they have a viable business with many other customers or not, etc. It is worth investigating the law is that you are not sure. I would like to discuss two types of contractual relationships by listing these important clauses: studio/client relations and studio/contracting relationships.
