Royalties for film
I will be producing my first documentary film next month. I have a 2 week shoot in El Salvador and then Mexico thereafter. The documentary will be edited by me in 2019 and hopefully released later that year or in 2020. My question is how should we (client and me, the producer and director of photography) divide the percent of the profit royalties for the film as it has potential to make money in the future?
My client mentioned dividing up the earnings amongst the team, but I want to receive a fair amount since I will be performing the majority of the work for this documentary. Let me know what you think.
