We generally think of contracts as lengthy and incomprehensible documents used only in significant transactions. However, whether running your own studio, working for someone else, or just occasionally doing commission work, the reality is that you are forming and entering into contracts every day, often on nothing more than a handshake basis. Just as often, technicalities and details of the transaction are not worked out in advance, leading to misunderstandings and disagreements as deadlines loom. A good contract can go a long way toward eliminating these potential pitfalls. In this course, you learn that you don't need to be a lawyer to improve your contracting skills. The basics of contracting are covered: what a contract is, how to create one, and how to go about determining what it should say.
