It is recommended that you use it instead of business or quick jotting down your own note to validate the currently underway.
There are two types of contract available - one for directly hired authors and the other for authors on loans. The use of this contract can and will make your lives simpler, both at the moment of the contract negotiation and in the unlucky cases in which a conflict arose later.

The guild's default contract is currently intended for cinematographic work, but other types will be available in the near theater.
The contract does not represent any kind of judicial consultation, but is provided by the guild as an assistance to guarantee the punctual supply of the contract and thus the punctual payments to the author. It is designed to make the negotiation procedure between a author or his agent and a firm that employs him easier.
Businesses, authors and their agents can use these documents as a reminder of contracts of work before submitting a "long-term contract".
