With rich experience in building Business Affairs Departments from the ground up, Contracts Matter develops and implements strategies and best practices for both deal structures and negotiations. We believe in educating/mentoring both Business Affairs and Creative/Production Teams in all matters of development, production and exploitation.
Whatever medium you are creating for, Contracts Matter has the deal-making and negotiation skills to facilitate your scripted/unscripted live action, animation, and digital deals. We’re consistently recognized by our deep industry contacts as effective and trusted negotiators, closing deals quickly and within parameters.
Examples of types of deals we excel at (but not limited to):
(* For both WGA and Animation)
Other Underlying Materials
Contracts Matter knows the ins and outs of guild / labor matters including the ability to advise and negotiate guild compliant deals. Two areas of notable expertise include navigating WGA and I.A.T.S.E. 839 – The Animation Guild deal making. (The latter from representing writer/creators of animated pilots and series and working internally at Disney.)
We successfully partner with senior executive/management teams to strategize and develop deal terms, proposals, and templates that support their business model and objectives.
