I DRAW, YOU PAY!!!
When one is working at a production office for a feature films or commercials, I don’t worry about getting paid. Yes, there can be a snafu here and there, but you know that a bonded company has accountants set up and a payroll system.
You will get paid with a week if you are on a film (studio film, indies can be dicey) or a few weeks on a commercial.The two things that you enter on your own risk are music videos and when someone pays you out of their own pocket.
On a video (better to work with a large company that does commercials as well) the director often gets paid off the top of a job, particularly if they are an owner in the company. This has backfired on me many a time. I have waited a month to get paid on smaller companies as the check from the record company went to the director to get their bite and THEN the rest went to the crew.
If a director is paying out of their pocket, you might want to write out a simple contract,
showing what each of you must bring to the table and what the penalties are for NOT doing this
