Film Accounting 101 Workshop – Next Stop Orlando Oct 12/13th – 2013


The film accounting week-end workshop is hands-on training using a common proprietary general ledger software used in the Film Industry. You’ll be doing exactly the same thing all assistant production accountants do – all of the details are practiced in a controlled environment.


  • Film Accounting practices, processes and work-flows are generally the same throughout North America (if not the world).
  • We DO in the workshop what any assistant accountant must DO in the actual working environment of any film or television production.
  • After 2 days of practical ‘doingness’ you will be feeling pretty good about walking into a film production accounting office as an accounting clerk or a 2nd assistant accountant.
  • As an additional option you can also attend the 6 live on-line webinars after the weekend training which will take you into the next level of managing a film budget and cost reporting to the financiers.


In addition to having the skills to break into the film accounting business, you will also receive:

  • my ebook “Walk The Talk”, used by the Peter Stark Producing Program at the Univ of Southern California
  • multiple formatted film budgets
  • +50 practical Accounting & Legal Form Templates
  • accounting policies
  • flow charts of film accounting systems
  • a typical film production organization chart
  • a booklet in pdf on Managing Film Budgets
  • a booklet in pdf on Managing Cost Reports (a “Cost Report” is the weekly financial report card showing detailed and summarized information on the variances from budget as well as prediction of the final costs expected)
  • SAG payroll templates
  • IATSE Low Budget payroll helper template
  • cashflow templates
  • hot cost templates
  • enjoy a weekend in Florida at one of the best conference centers in Orlando
  • etc.

I hope to see you there. You can check out the details of the course by visiting my web site at CLICK HERE FOR MORE INFO

Cheers / John

    I just came across your blog, and I must say I am thrilled to have located this informative and well laid out site. I have aspirations to enter into the film industry as an Accountant. I have a Masters Degree in Accounting, but much of my experience is centered around Healthcare Financial Reporting. I would love to acquire the additional knowledge needed to transition career paths, please advise to when is your next Workshop. I am in North Carolina, but I am more than willing to travel to take part in this opportunity.
