DPA Presents Contract Guidelines for Independent Documentary Producers.  To address the concerns of independent documentary producers, the Documentary Producers Alliance launched the Contract Guidelines for Independent Documentary Producers, intended to address working conditions, career sustainability, transparency, and compensation. These guidelines are the first of their kind, including a recommended rate table for producers, what terms producers should consider within a contract, and a glossary of terms and phrases.
