Task 2 – Working to a brief

A brief is an agreement between the client and the company that lets both parties know of the
correct aims and objectives of the project, either clearly defined in the initial stages or as an evolving
process as the communication between the client and the company progresses. All projects start out
by some form of a brief.

Contractual briefs

A contract brief is a binding contract between the client and the employee (the producer). The
contractual brief explains how the company schemes its work and the duties required. The
contractual brief states how much the employee will receive once the production is done. The
contractual brief includes many other areas within it such as what the employee is agreeing to, it
also includes the general liability insurance. Producers in the media industry most often use
contractual briefs. In brief, it is a legal contract between the client and the employee which
describes the task required to be done, the price and also the payment terms. The advantages of
these types of contracts are that it is easy for the client to complete the production with extra
information; it also allows them to have more control over the process. The disadvantages are for
the producer making the contract as there may be disagreements between what the client and the
producer would like to be on the contractual brief.

Negotiated briefs

Negotiated briefs are the type of brief that is flexible and may change during the process due to
requirements from either the employee or the company. Negotiated briefs are one of the types of
briefs that are much more relaxed than others. Negotiated briefs can have input from both sides of
the creation, the company and the clients, which means this kind of brief is open to interpretation.
Negotiated briefs include what needs to be done as well as other information such as the target
group, size, cost, medium required, scope of work, quantity, siting and time frame. The usual client
that most often uses this type of brief is mostly a small company that is open to negotiation in order
to suit both the employee and their own company. The communication between the company and
the employee is vital whilst doing this type of a brief as the brief is created by both parties and all
decisions are made together.

                                                                                               Stating how the project will be re-
                                                                                               evaluated and reviewed for later
                                                                                               change for both the company and
                                                                                               the employee to have an input.



               Formal briefs

               Formal briefs are briefs that may change overtime by the client as the production develops due to
               additional requirements needed that may be put in by the client. This brief is also relaxed like
               negotiated briefs and the layout is very calm and is easy to read. Due to this structure of formal
               briefs it is much easier for the client to understand and create the product.


               Informal briefs

               Informal briefs are usually done a lot simpler and are generally less specific to the person, informal
               wouldn’t be made or given to a person directly usually, they would get it off the internet or from a
               company; the aspects of the brief must usually appeal to all members from the client list. One of the
               advantages of doing an informal brief is that it is very laidback, which creates a relaxed environment
               for the client and the employee and therefore the product can be created much more quickly. One
               disadvantage of an informal brief is that it is most usually seen as unprofessional and unclear and
               could create confusion between the client and the employee.

               An example of an Informal Brief:

                                                                                                                        2

                                                                                                project fee.


 Details on how to apply.




            Another example of an informal brief done directly to a person that notifies the company that they
            are resigning:




                                                                                                                 3

Tender briefs

Tender briefs are the type of brief that producers receive if they are new to the company. Whilst on
a tender brief, you develop your ideas amongst others and then based on the quality of your work,
the company decides whether you are suitable to be the client or not. The advantage of a tender
brief is that it is relaxed and easy to do. A disadvantage of a tender brief is that at the end you may
not be chosen by the company as the final client.

Commission briefs

Commission briefs are much like other briefs however the main difference is that they allow
compensation to the clients, the service that they give is called commission or brokerage.
Commission briefs are unique as they are the only type of brief that allows the customer to apply to
get the money back.

Co-operative briefs

Co-operative briefs are the type of brief that allows there to be two or more parties involved in the
brief; it allows a number of clients to work together. This is quite different to other briefs as it allows
more than one person to be involved with the brief.




Competition briefs

Competition briefs are used in competitions and are given to the participants within that
competition; it explains to the clients what they must do to enter the competition and lets them
understand how to complete the competition, this type of brief involves and is centred on the
audience. Company’s usually use this type of briefs to promote competition by giving out the brief to
clients so they are clear on what they need to do to enter and compete in the competition. There
are many attributing factors that come in to play when creating a competition brief such as the
scope of work, size of purchase (competition details), target audience and how to attract the
audience, quantities and siting.

  • 1. Pooyan Amiri Unit 4, 5 and 62 Assignment 1 Task 2 – Working to a brief A brief is an agreement between the client and the company that lets both parties know of the correct aims and objectives of the project, either clearly defined in the initial stages or as an evolving process as the communication between the client and the company progresses. All projects start out by some form of a brief. Contractual briefs A contract brief is a binding contract between the client and the employee (the producer). The contractual brief explains how the company schemes its work and the duties required. The contractual brief states how much the employee will receive once the production is done. The contractual brief includes many other areas within it such as what the employee is agreeing to, it also includes the general liability insurance. Producers in the media industry most often use contractual briefs. In brief, it is a legal contract between the client and the employee which describes the task required to be done, the price and also the payment terms. The advantages of these types of contracts are that it is easy for the client to complete the production with extra information; it also allows them to have more control over the process. The disadvantages are for the producer making the contract as there may be disagreements between what the client and the producer would like to be on the contractual brief. Negotiated briefs Negotiated briefs are the type of brief that is flexible and may change during the process due to requirements from either the employee or the company. Negotiated briefs are one of the types of briefs that are much more relaxed than others. Negotiated briefs can have input from both sides of the creation, the company and the clients, which means this kind of brief is open to interpretation. Negotiated briefs include what needs to be done as well as other information such as the target group, size, cost, medium required, scope of work, quantity, siting and time frame. The usual client that most often uses this type of brief is mostly a small company that is open to negotiation in order to suit both the employee and their own company. The communication between the company and the employee is vital whilst doing this type of a brief as the brief is created by both parties and all decisions are made together. 1

Formal briefs Formal briefs are briefs that may change overtime by the client as the production develops due to additional requirements needed that may be put in by the client.
