Hello All,

My wife has generously offered to produce a Yoga instructional video I am creating for a client. While I have many years experience in video production and post production, none of it is in the role of producer. My wife has experience as a theatre producer, but no video production experience. For this particular job, she will mostly be generating and managing contracts and licenses as well as keeping the books.

Can anyone recommend a book or website that will help my wife brush on the particulars of being a video producer? I am especially interested in resources that offer sample contracts and talent releases.

Many thanks,

Here's a great place to start Chadwick. Mark Litwack's book of contracts has many good legal forms that can be doctored to your own specs. Have you wife memorize everything on his website and have her come here for additional advice.
