WGC's Digital Guidelines
The WGC’s Digital Guidelines provide a practical model for producers, writer-producers, agents and writers undertaking a digital production.
The WGC Digital Guidelines are based on an analysis of industry statistics, data gathered from actual contracts for work in digital screenwriting, and consultation with screenwriters working in the area. With guidelines for funded and speculative digital productions, short and standard-length digital productions, as well as non-linear digital productions, our goal is to help make the project happen.
The guidelines provide suggested rates and conditions for writers and agents to use in their individual negotiations. Based on our analysis of the industry, we believe these terms and conditions are fair. Writing for digital productions does not have minimums - fees are negotiable between producers and screenwriters.
And just as for any other writing on the screen, WGC members must have IPA contracts for their digital writing work and may only sign with producers who have signed on the Independent Production Agreement. And signing is easy - for producers and self-producing writer/creators - just call us.
