enny Posted March 16, 2016 Share Posted March 16, 2016 Hi guys i shoot produced edited the whole 9 yards music video for free no money was exchanged or contract written for a local rock band ( i am making my portfolio and gaining experience). I delivered finished music video on time that i agree on resalable 3 weeks turnaround 3 reversions with a client ( they are not paying client but i am approaching this as professional and as paying client) and they love the finished video we all head input on the look and fell of the video. Lead singer of the group become professional editor over night since he seen some videos on you tube how to use avid. I told him there is more to editing then just buttons its a craft/art. Other 3 member of the group love the final edit but this main guy is now asking me to give him raw files so he can make changes of course nicely and politely i told him no that was not the deal at all and they head enough time to change what ever they like to a point. 3 other band member are staying out of it Before anything started i told them in the email that they will get 3 reversions full production editing, camera, lightning all the gear was provided by me and location but final edit is my to make and after final edit all the original files will be deleted and no money will be made of the original raw files sold ect so i can move on to next project. He basically is saying that legally those files are his since he is in the picture. I told him under Canada law since contract was not made and nothing was written or specified those files are my to do what ever i wish plus i have the original email them agreeing on the terms i asked for. My question is i have few more music videos coming up under same deal should i have some basic contract written up? Any ideas or insight would help Thanks guys sanveer and Axel 2 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
