What Do I Want In My Contract? A WGC Panel Discussion at McGill Faculty of Law, Moot Court, February 6 2012. What should a screenwriter ask for when he or she options a feature film or a TV series to a producer? The Writers Guild of Canada’s minimum contract (the Independent Production Agreement) covers many basic terms, but others are up for negotiation, including lots of ways to get paid on the back end, the right to write new material, and the crucial “Created by” credit in TV. Plus, what’s all this fine print? With: Alex Epstein, co-writer of BON COP/BAD COP, author of CRAFTY SCREENWRITING, National Forum delegate for the WGC; Marc Lapointe, agent at Omada Agency; Dean Chenoy, lawyer at Hennan Blaikie; Jasmine Spei, WGC. Panel organized by Alex Epstein (WGC), Jennifer Mulligan (WGC), Emile Arsalane (MESLA) & Ivana Cescutti (MESLA).
