I've been asked to direct a music video for a new pop song that's going to be released.
I've struggled to find anything on the web regarding this, but basically I wanted to know what sort of percentage I can ask for from a royalty perspective?
The people asking me to direct it have also said that they've been told by the VPL and EMI that I should actually only receive a one-off payment. However, the people creating the song have no money so any payment would be on a deferred basis which I don't really like as it means I'll be in a position where I could do the work and not get paid. At least if there's a royalty agreement, I could get someone like the VPL to collect royalties on my behalf etc.
Any links to sites which have information, or contacts to establish what I should be asking for would be much appreciated.
