Many independent filmmakers are unaware that the the State of California and the IRS require producers to pay all actors and crew on their sets as employees even if they are only working for a single day. They require producers to provide workers compensation insurance, get signatures on tax forms, and pay payroll taxes on time. There are very, very, few exceptions to these rules.
The risks and liabilities associated with not legally employing your cast and crew and failing to provide them with workers comp insurance are very high.
Castifi provides a secure, user friendly, one-stop solution that allows producers large and small to safely, legally, hire the pros they need to legally produce great content.
