Default Work For Hire

I'm just leaving college and want to begin getting paid for my work as a sound supervisor for films.

I have a gig lined up and the producer's a friend who I've negotiated payment with, but I want to develop a contract that will be generally acceptable to most paying clients.

The problem is that "work for hire" contracts (which seem to be common in this industry) don't actually allow for using the film and sound design in your portfolio, nor can I reuse sounds I recorded in my own sound library... legally speaking.

I don't expect an issue from this client, but I'd like to get it cleared up. Any ideas? Experience?

Currently my only solution is to do this first one under a WFH contract and use the payment to hire an IP attorney to draft my long standing contract template for the rest of my clients.
