Here's an event that will be well-worth attending for those who want to polish their contract negotiating skills. The New Zealand Cinematographers Society has organised Matt Emery and Chloe Smith to host an event covering everything that you have never understood about the negotiating and contracting process, and everything that you would like to have remembered to negotiate for but forgot to ask, because you weren't prepared to be your own agent!
Matt Emery specialises in advising producers on film and television productions and has extensive experience in structuring complex contracts. Chloe Smith is a member of the NZCS committee and has a background in production services to the film and television production industries. They'll go over some FAQs, plus answer your questions too.
When: 3 July 2018 7:00 PM - 8:30 PM
Where: The Horse & Trap, 3 Enfield Street, Mt Eden, Auckland
Cost: Members free, non-members $15
