The Contract is dated January 23, 2023.


1.1 Project.

1.2 Schedule. The Coach will begin work on February 1, 2023 and will continue until the work is completed. This Contract can be ended by either Client or Coach at any time, pursuant to the terms of Section 4, Term and Termination.

The Coach and Client will meet by video conference, 4 days per month for 2 hours.

3.1 Overview. This section contains important promises between the parties.

3.2 Authority To Sign. Each party promises to the other party that it has the authority to enter into this Contract and to perform all of its obligations under this Contract.

3.3 Coach Has Right To Give Client Work Product. The Coach promises that it owns the work product, that the Coach is able to give the work product to the Client, and that no other party will claim that it owns the work product. If the Coach uses employees or subcontractors, the Coach also promises that these employees and subcontractors have signed contracts with the Coach giving the Coach any rights that the employees or subcontractors have related to the Coach's background IP and work product.

3.4 Coach Will Comply With Laws. The Coach promises that the manner it does this job, its work product, and any background IP it uses comply with applicable U.S. and foreign laws and regulations.

3.5 Work Product Does Not Infringe. The Coach promises that its work product does not and will not infringe on someone else's intellectual property rights, that the Coach has the right to let the Client use the background IP, and that this Contract does not and will not violate any contract that the Coach has entered into or will enter into with someone else.

3.7 Client-Supplied Material Does Not Infringe. If the Client provides the Coach with material to incorporate into the work product, the Client promises that this material does not infringe on someone else's intellectual property rights.


This Contract is ongoing until it expires or the work is completed.

6.1 Overview. This Contract imposes special restrictions on how the Client and the Coach must handle confidential information. These obligations are explained in this section.

6.2 The Client's Confidential Information. While working for the Client, the Coach may come across, or be given, Client information that is confidential. This is information like customer lists, business strategies, research & development notes, statistics about a website, and other information that is private. The Coach promises to treat this information as if it is the Coach's own confidential information. The Coach may use this information to do its job under this Contract, but not for anything else. For example, if the Client lets the Coach use a customer list to send out a newsletter, the Coach cannot use those email addresses for any other purpose. The one exception to this is if the Client gives the Coach written permission to use the information for another purpose, the Coach may use the information for that purpose, as well. When this Contract ends, the Coach must give back or destroy all confidential information, and confirm that it has done so. The Coach promises that it will not share confidential information with a third party, unless the Client gives the Coach written permission first. The Coach must continue to follow these obligations, even after the Contract ends. The Coach's responsibilities only stop if the Coach can show any of the following: (i) that the information was already public when the Coach came across it; (ii) the information became public after the Coach came across it, but not because of anything the Coach did or didn't do; (iii) the Coach already knew the information when the Coach came across it and the Coach didn't have any obligation to keep it secret; (iv) a third party provided the Coach with the information without requiring that the Coach keep it a secret; or (v) the Coach created the information on its own, without using anything belonging to the Client.

6.3 Third-Party Confidential Information. It's possible the Client and the Coach each have access to confidential information that belongs to third parties. The Client and the Coach each promise that it will not share with the other party confidential information that belongs to third parties, unless it is allowed to do so. If the Client or the Coach is allowed to share confidential information with the other party and does so, the sharing party promises to tell the other party in writing of any special restrictions regarding that information.


Neither party is liable for breach-of-contract damages that the breaching party could not reasonably have foreseen when it entered this Contract.


8.1 Overview. This section transfers certain risks between the parties if a third party sues or goes after the Client or the Coach or both. For example, if the Client gets sued for something that the Coach did, then the Coach may promise to come to the Client's defense or to reimburse the Client for any losses.

8.2 Client Indemnity. In this Contract, the Coach agrees to indemnify the Client (and its affiliates and their directors, officers, employees, and agents) from and against all liabilities, losses, damages, and expenses (including reasonable attorneys' fees) related to a third-party claim or proceeding arising out of: (i) the work the Coach has done under this Contract; (ii) a breach by the Coach of its obligations under this Contract; or (iii) a breach by the Coach of the promises it is making in Section 3 (Representations).

8.3 Coach Indemnity. In this Contract, the Client agrees to indemnify the Coach (and its affiliates and their directors, officers, employees, and agents) from and against liabilities, losses, damages, and expenses (including reasonable attorneys' fees) related to a third-party claim or proceeding arising out of a breach by the Client of its obligations under this Contract.


9.1 Assignment​. This Contract applies only to the Client and the Coach. Neither the Client nor the Coach can assign its rights or delegate its obligations under this Contract to a third-party (other than by will or intestate), without first receiving the other's written permission.

9.2 Arbitration. As the exclusive means of initiating adversarial proceedings to resolve any dispute arising under this Contract, a party may demand that the dispute be resolved by arbitration administered by the American Arbitration Association in accordance with its commercial arbitration rules.

9.3 Modification; Waiver. To change anything in this Contract, the Client and the Coach must agree to that change in writing and sign a document showing their contract. Neither party can waive its rights under this Contract or release the other party from its obligations under this Contract, unless the waiving party acknowledges it is doing so in writing and signs a document that says so.

9.4. Noticies.

(a) Over the course of this Contract, one party may need to send a notice to the other party. For the notice to be valid, it must be in writing and delivered in one of the following ways: personal delivery, email, or certified or registered mail (postage prepaid, return receipt requested). The notice must be delivered to the party's address listed at the end of this Contract or to another address that the party has provided in writing as an appropriate address to receive notice.

(b) The timing of when a notice is received can be very important. To avoid confusion, a valid notice is considered received as follows: (i) if delivered personally, it is considered received immediately; (ii) if delivered by email, it is considered received upon acknowledgement of receipt; (iii) if delivered by registered or certified mail (postage prepaid, return receipt requested), it is considered received upon receipt as indicated by the date on the signed receipt. If a party refuses to accept notice or if notice cannot be delivered because of a change in address for which no notice was given, then it is considered received when the notice is rejected or unable to be delivered. If the notice is received after 5:00pm on a business day at the location specified in the address for that party, or on a day that is not a business day, then the notice is considered received at 9:00am on the next business day.

9.5 Severability. This section deals with what happens if a portion of the Contract is found to be unenforceable. If that's the case, the unenforceable portion will be changed to the minimum extent necessary to make it enforceable, unless that change is not permitted by law, in which case the portion will be disregarded. If any portion of the Contract is changed or disregarded because it is unenforceable, the rest of the Contract is still enforceable.

9.6 Signatures. The Client and the Coach must sign this document using Bonsai's e-signing system. These electronic signatures count as originals for all purposes.

9.7 Governing Law. The validity, interpretation, construction and performance of this document shall be governed by the laws of the United States of America.

9.8 Entire Contract. This Contract represents the parties' final and complete understanding of this job and the subject matter discussed in this Contract. This Contract supersedes all other contracts (both written and oral) between the parties.

So, what role does the actor invoice example play in boosting your acting career?

1. An actor invoice template builds relationships

It might surprise you to note that your actor invoice template can help you to boost relationships. Networking is such an important component of any success you wish to enjoy as an actor. Networking simply revolves around the relationships you build.

The relationships you build along the way could end up being the door to a bigger contract. To be able to build relationships that are beneficial in future, you have to always communicate professionally in every situation. Paint a picture of someone they can recommend, someone who will not disappoint. Be keen always using an actor invoice example to ask for payment no matter how short the gig may have been.

An invoice for actors is a powerful tool in this regard. It presents you as a trustworthy and honest professional. Charge accurate rates that will not make you out to look like you are greedy. Fill the invoice with only accurate information based on the contract you have with the person or organization that hired you as an agent. This way, your reputation would improve substantially. The clients you serve would then have no problem exposing you to other opportunities.

2. An actor invoice template builds a resume

Good actors have a solid resume, which they can present to anyone who needs it in an instant. The actor invoice template is proof of the work you have done over the years. For this reason, you should start preparing it the moment you get a foothold into the industry. Do not wait to start writing an actor invoice only when you have become a famous artist. Take this career as any freelancing gig. Build it from the bottom up. Let everybody you interact with from the first day know that you’re focused on building a lasting career. On top of building a resume, let the actor invoice example act as an accurate record of all your past achievements too.

When you have a good record of all the work you have done, it is easier convince someone that you are capable. The acting industry is all about having a name; a good brand takes you places. 

Other than having proof of the gigs you have been involved in, you are able to manage your cash flow. As an actor, before you are put on any company’s payroll, you remain a freelancer. And for this reason you have to sell yourself as you grow your business in the process. To grow your business, you have to have stable cash flow. The only way to track and manage your cash flow effectively is to be able to know how much cash is coming in and how much is going out. A good actor invoice template enables you as an actor to do this seamlessly.

3. Work on attitude with an actor invoice template

Writing an invoice for actors requires a good attitude. In fact, you can learn to work on your attitude by spending enough time creating an invoice for all the freelancing gigs you perform as an actor. The process is quite laborious, but the rewards make all your efforts worthy. The acting business can be full of disappointments such that you would be ready to take any gig that comes along without taking measures to protect yourself. The biggest disservice you can do yourself is to embark on an acting project without a contract. Therefore, spend as much time as you need preparing the actor invoice example knowing the role it plays in improving your attitude.

A well drafted actor invoice example is a chance to showcase your professionalism as we had already seen. But it is also an opportunity for the client to either dismiss you as an unsuitable candidate or one they can continue working with. The actor invoice template reflects your attitude as a person; it paints a vivid picture of how working with you can be. The contract you sign at the beginning of any gig should include the details you will display in the invoice for actors. Don’t exaggerate anything or try to be lenient, stick to the agreement even when drafting the actor invoice template.

4. An actor invoice template is proof that you know your craft

You are more likely to find yourself dealing with people and organizations who want to take advantage of you if you don’t know your craft well. In this industry, you will be treated like any other freelancer. It’s upon you to show that you know your rights. Even if you feel you are still in the process of learning the art, professionalism is the secret to surviving. When your transactions are professional, including when asking for payment, people will begin to take you seriously. You may not know your way around the industry but being keen to details will cover you. Make friends with the actor invoice example.

You will come across clients who will not be willing to pay without being prompted to dos so. In fact there are some who will even bring up issues to delay payments. Sending your invoice for actors at the same time every time is one way to ensure you get your payment at the right time. But more than anything, the actor invoice example should be very clear and concise. Put all the necessary details including the due date, the work completed, the name of the client and any balances that are there. Ensuring that you are not sounding vague is one way to avoid conflicts. Being clear also helps to ensure that unfair clients don’t have any foothold when looking for ways to frustrate you.

Embrace professionalism. Insist on contracts and invoices for every project. Do not take anybody’s words at face value. Show them that you take your work seriously. Prove to all that you’re not to be taken lightly, as well. Earn the respect that you deserve. Your clients will only respect you when you show that you deserve respect. The invoice – and the contract – is the key to all that.

Use the actor invoice template to show how serious you take your work as an actor. Even when it’s dealing with someone you have developed friendship with, maintain professionalism. Send invoice for actors every time you ask for payment and at the same time so that the clients will also respect time as you do.

There are actors who climb up the ladder to success within a short time, while there are others who take longer to establish themselves. It may not be because of the similar issues, but professionalism is a proven ticket to success. Make it easy to achieve this by telling your clients to expect an actor invoice template for all projects.
