Through one of my ads I've been contacted by this film producer (or at least claims to be. Says he owns a small video production studio) teamed up with another producer. I auditioned alone in the second guy's studio, and was told they are interested in me, and I will be trying out with the rest of the band next week. They have some tracks that were recorded by some session musicians in the UK, and the idea is to make the band work and improve on them before september - at which time there we'll play a gig, which some record company bigwigs are supposed to attend and ideally offer us a contract. Until then, it's one rehearsal a week. So, movie producer guy told me they'd put me under a contract, which I asked about but was not given many info yet - just stating that it would be really simple and simply bind me to play in this project for an year - and bind them to have me play in said project. He mentioned money would be on a percentage basis rather than a fixed amount for gigs. He did not mention whether rehearsals are in the contract or what the penalty is if I quit. He did mention however that the show will be "carefully planned", such as requiring specific stage moves/attitude, clothing etc. Now it seems strange that I'm offered a contract where there's no money involved yet. And I don't like being bound to something that I could greatly not enjoy - I can picture director guy getting mad over said "choreographies". On the other hand, it sounds like a good opportunity, in money and "exposure" (fortunately for him, he did not use this term) - or in other words, musical contacts. I wish I had more actual info, but I won't see the contract until I'm actually offered the job. I'm thinking about asking a percentage for the gigs but WITH A MINIMUM, and also ask at least for gas expenses for rehearsals - it's a 20km drive twice every week after all, and I'm not doing this for the glory nor because I like the music so much. It would seem that the other musicians are under a similar contract What do you think?
