I got a call to operate and fly steadi on a "new media" contract series for the next few mos.  It's feeling a lot like the wild west out here, talking to these producers about rerating, etc. I've decided this is a great time to rewrite my deal memo from the ground up, and would really like to double check. Does anyone have one of theirs they'd be willing to share with me? Any other advice for hammering out steadi agreements on new media shows?

Sample of a basic Steadicam Operator deal memo is on the Steadicam Guild website. 

Lower left side on the page called "Operator's Corner" There is a PDF version and a word version of a deal memo. 

Direct link to the main page:

Thanks David. I've been on that page before and totally glossed over this. Maybe I need to bring my current 6 pages back to something like this and simplify.



Or maybe I need to go look for an agent...
