    Director Employment Agreement (non-union)


    Hire a director for a non-union motion picture production with this Director Employment Agreement.

    • This is a non-union contract but the parties intend the DGA credit rules to apply.

    • The director's compensation will consist of fixed flat fee compensation, plus deferred and contingent compensation.
    • The producer has the right to suspend or terminate the agreement if the director becomes incapacitated or is in default of his/her obligations.
    • If the producer becomes a DGA signatory, the Directors' Guild of America Basic Agreement will govern if there is a conflict between its terms and the terms of the Employment Agreement.
