Upcoming Webinar - Contract Webinar Series, Part 2: "Premiere & Stock Contracts"

Join PGC's Professional Contracts Manager, Rebecca Burton, for the second installment of a three-part series about PACT/PGC professional production contracts. Having covered the Standard Clauses in the first session, Part Two of the series focuses on Premiere and Stock Contracts for regular and TYA productions. Learn about the elements included in these contract forms (e.g. the right to produce, extensions, royalty rates, exclusivity, etc.), so you are well-equipped for future negotiations with PACT companies. This is a free 30-minute webinar for PGC members.
