Making a Videography Contract

  • What is a Videography Contract?

    Videographers and their clients use Videography Contracts as a means of documenting their arrangements. Suitable for wedding videographer engagements, business videos, and all other videography services, this essential document helps define each party's expectations. It outlines details such as the time, place, and duration of the job plus pricing information and cancellation policies. With Rocket Lawyer, your Videography Agreement is not your average template. If you ever require support from an attorney in the event of missed payments or any other problem, your Premium membership provides the optional benefit of Document Defense® protection on every contract.

  • Why do I need a Videographer Contract?

    No matter how small the job, having a record of your commitments to the client is key. Using a Videography Contract most likely will be good for you due to the following list of benefits:

    • Neither party is confused about fees charged
    • Neither party is surprised by how much time is required
    • The videographer and client both understand the scope of their responsibilities

    If you don't have a Videography Agreement, you might have to manage one or more of the following issues: unrealistic expectations, challenges collecting payment, unmet standards of quality, unclear deadlines, and, unfortunately, limited recourse when something goes wrong.

  • What do I need to make a contract for videography services?

    You should organize the following information for the Videography Contract:

    • Contact information for videographer and client
    • Time and date of filming including the duration
    • Description of services
    • Number of days to provide sample video and final product
    • Price and deposit information (including overtime fees)
    • Whether a cancellation policy is included and time to cancel
    • When the contract terminates
    • Who retains ownership of the video footage
    • Days to correct a default for both sides
    • If both sides will be protected from "acts of God"
    • Whether arbitration is to happen before going to court

    As you might hope from an agreement like this one, any Videography Contract that you make using Rocket Lawyer will also contain the standard language regarding the non-employer relationship between the videographer and client, the protection of private information, dispute resolution methods, and finally, reimbursement for losses. When you build your agreement, you'll also be able to determine which state's laws will govern it. More customization is possible, as needed.

  • How do I make a custom videography contract template online for free?

    If you want to create a Videography Contract for free with Rocket Lawyer, you can get started by tapping or clicking on the button labeled "Make Document." You will then answer a few questions about your situation to help build a contract. Before signing your Videography Agreement, you might also consider having your drafted document reviewed by a lawyer in our nationwide attorney network. This route, in many cases, would be much less expensive than hiring a traditional attorney, whose fees might total hundreds of dollars or thousands, if your situation is complex.

    If you've got any particular hesitations or concerns about getting started, ask a lawyer, or explore the other business documents in our library.

  • Is anything else required after my Videography Contract has been drafted?

    Whether you are making a wedding videographer contract or an agreement for a different type of video production, the next steps are the same. After completing your contract using Rocket Lawyer, you'll be able to open it wherever and whenever you choose. You also may try any of the following actions related to your contract: editing, signing via RocketSign®, downloading it as a PDF document or Word file, or printing it. Attached to each Videography Contract, there is a series of proposed steps to take after the document is completed. You should be sure that all signers get a copy of the final contract.

  • Would Rocket Lawyer be able to review my Videography Agreement before I sign?

    If you try to do it by yourself, locating a lawyer to review your agreement might be expensive. Some attorneys will not even agree to review documents that they didn't draft. If a lawyer does offer to provide feedback on your document, they are still going to charge their standard rate to do so. An easier route would be to go through Rocket Lawyer attorney services. By signing up for a Premium membership, you can get your agreements reviewed or send any questions. Whether you decide to use your existing videographer contract template to create additional Videography Agreements or you make other documents, Rocket Lawyer will be by your side.
