Managing finance for a film or television production can be a high-octane, action movie all of its own. The global pandemic, and the measures required to keep a production safe, add a further layer of complication. Traditionally, the film and TV industry have used large amounts of cash – to pay per diems to cast and crew or manage expenses and ad hoc purchasing – adding to the tension in terms of the risk involved and the opportunity for error. Today, with teams working remotely, there is a quicker, safer solution to get funds to crew, reduce paperwork whilst increasing visibility and control. Join them for their masterclass on:
Thursday 29 April
Online via Zoom
Members and partners have been emailed the registration details.
In this masterclass, Simon Liddell, Director of Film, Music and Entertainment and Jack Hodgkin, Senior Account Manager will demonstrate how Centtrip offers the perfect cash-management solution for production projects. They will also explore the many benefits of running a cash-free operation from increasing visibility and control to empowering production teams to quickly handle opportunities or issues as they arise.
