Just curious about the wonderful world of getting screwed out of money. What's the general consensus when it comes to contracts? Do most freelance designers have a contract that they carry around and adapt for each productions? Or do most just get the contract from the theatre or production company and alter and argue the fine print? How do you go about making a contract. If anyone has a sample contract (or rider) that they can post or refer to I'd appreciate it greatly. I did a search online for sample contracts but it seems that theatrical design contracts are few and far between.
