A Casting Director is the person responsible for selecting Performers for a production. This role is crucial to the overall success of a production. He has to hire Performers with the correct experience or quality to play their role, or they may affect the production.

This customizable Casting Director Agreement is used between a Film Producer or Production Company and the Casting Director. It sets out the essential deal terms, compensation, and more. This is a non-union agreement necessary in a work-for-hire, independent contractor role.

Having the right deal in place is essential to protecting you and your production. Without the right contract in place, you can expose yourself, your company, and your film.  For films, it is essential to document every deal properly to have a clean chain of titles for distribution or acquisition.

Creating a film contract ensures that the parties making the agreement will have all the proper terms and conditions laid out in advance of the engagement.
