The Development Agreement is used for the development of new works, usually prior to an intended Production Agreement engagement. The agreement includes three contract tiers: Tiers 1 and 2 are limited to two weeks, with Tier 3 covering two to eight weeks. All three tiers offer pension and health benefits. Tier 3 and, in some circumstances, Tier 2 offer contingent compensation.
Members can view Development Rulebook in the Rulebook Library in the Member Portal.
