What is it? A non-disclosure agreement (NDA) is a legal contract that multiple parties (at least two) use to keep information shared with each other, confidential.
Examples of non disclosure agreements:
An NDA is put in place to protect sensitive information, from what I can tell it’s something that business would use much more. If a business has a secret kept from the public like ingredients, they may have to share this with someone they’re working with so a contract to keep this confidential is vital for them.
I personally haven’t seen a need for any serious contracts in the work I’ve done or have planned but clearly contracts are very important if you need to keep something between you and a client. If I was to have an NDA in place it would probably come from a company I’d be doing work for, not me. The only kind of contract I’ve wanted to create is for photography as I’ve realised it’s necessary to protect your photos since the work represents you.
How could I apply this to my campaign? If I’d worked with a film student I could’ve maybe used an NDA to keep the video private until exhibition or when it would be shown publicly.
