This is a true story of a studio attempting to do wrong to an artist, and how that artist protected himself from it. The facts are all true, only the names have been changed or left out.

I have written this so that others can learn from my experience and legal events that I had to go through to make things right.

The first phone conversation

September 25, 2009

Today, after a brief exchange of emails, the head of production from a studio, Epilogue, calls me to discuss details on the feature they are working on. We talk and negotiate over the phone and make an agreement verbally. I then say that I am going to send over a booking agreement with the details in writing and ask if they can confirm it for me.
