Need advice for film crew contract...

If a film crew is working on a film for deferment, is it normal for them to also ask for a percentage of the gross income? If so, how much? What is fair? What is standard?

This is a low budget, short film. Any advice is appreciated or links to sample film crew contracts.

Thanks
Eric

I thought that was only for the high level guys like the producers,
director and perhaps the writer? But I could be wrong on that.

In the end I'd say you (the producer?) can decide what you want
to do with this. I would decide probably on level of involvement
of a person.
