Many people who work in Hollywood 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. These laws require producers to provide workers compensation insurance, get signatures on tax forms, and pay payroll taxes on time. The risks and liabilities associated with not obeying these rules is very high, and really it doesn't cost much to obey them.
The information in this video will be important to you whether you are a producer, cast, or crew because it explains how to meet these obligations cost effectively and why it's worth the bother for all involved.
You will learn:
- How to sign up as a Producer with a full service Employer of Record
- How Much it Costs to Employ People using the service
- How Producers hire cast and crew through the platform
- How Cast and/or Crew sign up
- How to send offers to Cast and Crew
- How to Get Tax Forms and Releases Signed
- How to Approve Time Sheets
- How Cast & Crew Can Track Payments Approved and Payments Made
Note: This includes a demo of Castifi which I use to employ people on my projects. There are certainly competing solutions that work well. Seeing this solution will help you understand them all. I get no kickback or payment from Castifi, I just use their service and like it.
You will also receive:
- Video: An Introduction to Intellectual Property Fundamentals which covers things creative pros need to know about protecting their ideas, work, and future earnings.
- Video: Contract Law Fundamentals with Attorney Justin Sterling which will help you understand how to avoid making enforceable contracts by accident and how to make deals you can enforce.
- Video: Enforcing Back End Deals using Collection Management Accounts which is useful if people frequently promise to pay you a share of profits from projects you work on.
If you have questions about these resources, please email firstname.lastname@example.org. You can find more resources at entertainmentindustryevents.com. I look forward to hearing from you.
