Thanks! Very helpful. The comment below about the effective dates and length of the Agreement was also useful. I just landed a Training Video production, and this was just what I needed.

Thank you for the sample letter of agreement. I use a Project Confirmation with my clients that may be too robust. I think yours provides the right amount of coverage. Very nice.
