this release/certificate of employment for anyone who gets a credit on one of our shows. The purpose of this is to be able to show a nice paperwork trail of the title and everyone or everything that could ever be copyrighted about the work. Weirdly, I have to sign the thing -- and more than once. I need to indemnify 'ganst my being a director, writer, cinematographer, and composer.
So there ya go.
Basically, in order to get credit, we have to have a signed contract. Otherwise our distributor will release a battalion of androids to come over and smack us.
