Employment & HR - Actors Agreement

Actors Agreement

A big name Hollywood star is often a significant driving force behind an audience’s attraction to seeing a particular feature film. Everyone loves to see their favourite star doing what they do best. Unless you happen to have played your cards incredibly well, it is unlikely that you are going to be able to secure Arnold Schwarzenegger to star in your next production.

We appreciate that for independent film makers it is not the size of the star that is important, but how brightly it shines. Securing your leading man or leading lady and ensuring they are happy with their circumstances can mean the difference between a solid performance that gets the audience’s hearts racing and one that leaves them wanting more.

Whether the actor is performing on screen or on stage, making sure that their relationship with the production is on the right track is essential for the success of the project as a whole.

When thinking about the terms and conditions that your talent will be subject to, we would suggest starting with the following:

  • The details of the project, including the name, length and target market
  • The pre-disclosed elements of the project and confidentiality
  • Proposed time frame
  • Remuneration
  • The actor’s input and obligations
  • Director and producer obligations
  • Performance rights
  • Warranties and indemnities
  • Termination

We will be happy to advise actors, directors and producers on any circumstances relating to the involvement of an actor or actress in a production.
