Film Production Payroll Workshops – Detroit and New Orleans

Hello, all. I have been working on a union payroll workshop for the film production business for a while now. After much time and effort I am now prepared to start delivering it. This workshop has been asked for many times, by assistant film accountants, by those wanting to get their foot in the door as a film payroll accountant and by aspiring Line Producers who need to know how to budget and control union labor costs.

After some time and effort I have now finished a comprehensive, well researched and referenced 2-Day Payroll Workshop for:

SAG Schedule A (Day Performers
SAG Schedule B (Weekly Performers)
IATSE (all union film productions less than $12Mil apply the rules as set out by the National IATSE Low Budget Agreement – this is our main concentration)
IATSE Area Standards is also referenced for productions over $12Mil – this is relatively easy after the foregoing.

Most of the workshop is practicing to make you fast and competent at working with the key facets of union payroll in film. We also cover the workflow of all payroll, right from the union contract through to the issue of the pay checks. Knowing the workflow is not only vital for aspiring Film Payroll Accountants, but also an excellent way for Line Producers and UPM’s to be able to budget and control union payroll.
The workshop is coming up in Detroit on March 5th and 6th, and the same workshop again in New Orleans in May.

I hope to see you all there.

Best to all,
