New Orleans -Film Accounting and Auditing For Professional Accts

This workshop introduces the professional accountant to the film industry specific standards, terminology and methodology as used throughout the industry. Before servicing this industry, or planning an audit of a film or television production for State tax credits, it is essential to understand the processes, industry standards and the ethics of not only the film accounting, but also of the producers and financiers of this very insular industry.

The workshop counts as 8 hours of CPE. The workshop will be held on Monday, May 23rd in New Orleans.

In addition to the Major Topics listed (see the link below) you will also compare the Louisiana State Tax Credit with other State tax credits – to gain a better understanding of why the Louisiana State Tax Credit is working so well.

The workshop is delivered by John Gaskin, a production accountant who has 25 years experience working on over 45 film and television productions of every size, in 5 different countries. John is also an engineer, an instructor, and an author of a book used in the mentoring program at the American Film Institute, the U. of S. California’s producer program, and the U. of Tampa’s producer program.

There are many testimonials on John’s home page. For more information on the “Film Accounting & Auditing for Professionals” workshop see
