Assignment

          You want to hire a professional editor to help your film scripting group to put together a script for a two-hour documentary on the lives of illegal immigrants in Texas.  It is estimated that the editor will be employed by your organization for three months and will be paid $250 per day.  For the most part, he/she will be editing work that your colleagues have already written, or are in the process of writing.  But it is clear that the editor should be able to write new material when the occasion arises.  For the editor to function properly, he/she needs to attend project meetings for the project and be capable of interviewing key people when necessary.

This is all the information you have been given regarding the editor’s potential chores.  You are asked to write a professional services contract that both your Vice President and the editor will sign.

  1. What items and issues should be included in the contract?
  2. Compose a short professional services contract that your company can use on the documentary project
