From DEGNZ, the Directors and Editors Guild NZ
Get more control over your career by knowing the pitfalls to avoid before you set out on your web series dreams.
Be informed about issues currently facing web content creators in NZ. Lately, we’ve seen some appalling agreements given to our director members to sign.
In response, DEGNZ has been busy on a standard contract for scripted content on the Web for Directors that will be launched at Before You Say Yes to Web Series.
You have the right to be compensated fairly for your creativity, ideas and hard work. This contract will help.
If the mention of “contract” makes you want to curl up into the foetal position, no fear, we’re bringing Tim Riley in from Dominion Law to break down that jargon. Without boring you to death.
DEGNZ supports your right to work for free, too. But if you do get the opportunity to make scripted online content and be paid, we’d like you to know what we believe is fair for your creative contribution. And when there isn’t enough hard cash involved, what you should ask for to make up the difference.
Be sure to bring your mates and get in the mix!
When: Saturday 28 October, 10am – 12pm

Where: St Columba Centre, 40 Vermont St, Ponsonby, Auckland.
