Cast & Crew Entertainment Services - The Interview!

Payroll Companies play a large and increasingly critical part of the production industry, and are _C&C-Albuquerque-192x384-r4often the “unseen heroes” that really help a film tick.  In this interview with our New Mexico clients – Cast & Crew Entertainment Services – Senior VP of Client Services, Shardell Cavaliere, explains about the role of the Payroll Company in the modern production landscape.

What are the core services Cast & Crew provides to the film industry?

As a leading Entertainment Industry services company, Cast & Crew offers a turnkey solution for the Industry’s payroll and production needs.  Our suite of services includes specialized payroll and residuals processing, Cast & Crew’s own proprietary software products: PSL production accounting software, (the most stable in the industry), onBudget, (Cast & Crew’s premier production budgeting software) and onSet, (Cast & Crew’s Purchasing and Procurement Company.)

Most people would be surprised at how large and diverse a role payroll companies play in the production of feature films. In addition to payroll, what services and/or logistics does Cast & Crew provide to the industry?

Cast & Crew has a suite of proprietary technology solutions for production from budgeting via our onBudget software to our production accounting software, PSL.  For our clients, Cast & Crew facilitates all areas of Worker’s Compensation, provides access to our extremely knowledgeable Labor Relations group and provides state-by-state production incentive advice.  Additionally, through our onSet service, productions are able to procure goods and services through Cast & Crew to take advantage of various state incentives.

As production continues to decentralize from LA to “incentive” states, what challenges or opportunities does that present for a company like Cast & Crew, and how do you stay on top of it all? Is that the benefit of having offices nationwide?

At Cast & Crew, we look at every change in the industry as an opportunity to increase both our knowledge base and our role in the ever changing industry.  We work directly with film commissions in all US and Canadian jurisdictions and participate in numerous panels and discussions all year long.  Through these relationships, Cast & Crew is kept abreast of proposed changes and is able to work proactively with our clients to ensure that they get the most out of the individual incentives. 

While traveling to take advantage of incentives is beneficial to the productions, are there areas where it makes things more difficult or less cost effective? How does working with a company like Cast & Crew minimize those challenges and help maximize incentives?

Cast & Crew’s relationships with various state agencies only benefit our clients.  The ever changing world of incentives poses a challenge to all productions but, by utilizing our services, they do not need to be worried that they are missing out.  We all know that it is not practical for a production to purchase and own all of the equipment that is necessary.  From the expense of traveling that equipment across the country to the expense of storing it until it is liquidated at the end of production, the viability of owning just does not make sense.  This is where Cast & Crew onSet provides an amazing service.  Productions are able to procure their equipment from onSet and take advantage of the state incentives.  No need to store or transport equipment and they get credit for incentive purposes.  This is a double win for productions! 

Productions are increasingly mobile, going from New Mexico to New Orleans or beyond. Do you follow along and provide services throughout, regardless of the location? What about overseas locations? What's one of the most exotic places your staff has traveled to?

When a production starts with Cast & Crew, they may begin working in the US and soon find themselves across the country or the ocean.  Cast & Crew currently has offices across the United States and Canada and we are pleased to be opening our first overseas office in London this spring.  Cast & Crew will be with them every step of the way. We have had productions in various parts of the world, including remote parts of Africa.  We are able to process US nationals working anywhere in the world and, with the opening of our London office, will be able to process payroll across Europe as well.

Does Cast & Crew help productions navigate all the State incentives to help them decide where to shoot? Or do your services begin once the locations are set and the project is green-lit?

Cast & Crew is available to work with any of our clients to get the most out of the state incentives.  We are not in the business of keeping our clients out in the cold and that philosophy extends to production incentives.  A client simply needs to call and let us know where they are going and we are ready to assist them with the most up-to-date information available.  We provide monthly email updates and twice yearly we publish a physical version of our TIP Guide which details the incentives on a state-by-state basis.  These tools and the personal relationships that we have with state agencies enable us to provide up to the minute information to our production partners allowing them to maximize their return.  

New Mexico remains one of the top production locations in the US. What is it about New Mexico that continues to keep it so successful in light of aggressive competition from other States?

New Mexico has state-of-the-art stage facilities, a good crew base and no per project cap except for the $20M aggregate cap on performing artists’ salaries.  In addition, the incentive is fully refundable, a short commute from Los Angeles for weekend trips home, and good weather,
all of which provide a very competitive landscape.

What are some of the more notable New Mexico productions Cast & Crew has worked on? 
Cast & Crew has been privileged to work with many productions in New Mexico such as The Lone Ranger, Game Change, Longmire and The Lying Game, to name just a few.

Tell us about your New Mexico crew. What makes them the best in the industry?

Our New Mexico office is led by a seasoned team of industry professions.  The majority of the team has also worked on the production side which adds to the client experience.
Cast & Crew uses "the most stable and sophisticated production accounting software available on the market." Explain a bit about the system, what it enables Cast & Crew to do, and how it gives you an edge over other Payroll companies.

PSL was designed to track production incentives efficiently and effectively. In addition, the user friendly interface makes it the go-to software for the biggest films ever produced, most recently THE LONE RANGER filmed in New Mexico. The flexibility of PSL allows for customized reports to be created effortlessly, allowing productions to maximize their return and speed up the incentive process.   Combine that with the 24/7 customer support, PSL has become the choice of production accountants everywhere.

NM House OKs larger subsidy for TV production

SANTA FE, N.M. (AP) — Television shows filmed in New Mexico could qualify for larger tax incentives under a proposal the state House unanimously approved Wednesday in hopes of bringing more long-running TV series and their jobs to the state.
The award-winning series "Breaking Bad" is set in Albuquerque and filming a fifth and final season. One of its actors, Steven Michael Quezada, sat in the House chamber as lawmakers debated the measure.
New Mexico offers a 25 percent tax refund for certain film and TV production expenses.
Under the legislation, the incentive would increase to 30 percent for a TV show producing at least six episodes in New Mexico. The extra 5 percent also would be offered for film and TV projects that spend an extended time in New Mexico doing their main photography at one of the state's film studios.
Quezada, a New Mexico actor who won a seat on the Albuquerque school board, said in an interview that the higher incentives should encourage more TV series to come to the state.
"It's a great investment. It's a long-term thing," he said.
"Breaking Bad" follows Bryan Cranston's character Walter White, who produces and sells methamphetamine with a former student. Quezada plays DEA agent Steven Gomez.
In 2011, the state imposed a $50 million annual limit on the tax credits provided for all film and TV projects. However, the legislation will allow unused subsidies to be carried over to the next year. That could mean that more than $50 million would be available in some years.
The cap was established when New Mexico faced a budget squeeze and state officials wanted more control over the costs of the film incentives.
The state provided about $96 million in film and TV tax refunds in the 2011 budget year, as production companies rushed to receive payments before the $50 million limit took effect. The state paid out about $9.5 million in 2012, and the New Mexico Film Office estimates the incentives could reach about $45 million this year.
The proposed incentives will "send a clear and strong message to the industry that the government of the state of New Mexico welcomes the film industry and also wants more TV production filmed here locally as well," said Rep. Antonio "Moe" Maestas, an Albuquerque Democrat who sponsored the proposal.
The measure heads to the Senate, where a similar proposal has cleared one committee.

Bill designed to lure more TV series to N.M.

From The Santa Fe New Mexican, by Steve Terrell, 
 SANTA FE — Call it the "'Breaking Bad' Bill."
In a bill meant to spur more production of television series in New Mexico, Rep. Antonio "Moe" Maestas, D-Albuquerque is proposing bigger film-incentive rebates for television series.
"TV series are good for job creation and sustained economic growth," Maestas told reporters Monday. "TV series that are successful stay around for several years. Movies come and go."
Longer series mean more job security for New Mexico crews, Maestas said.
The legislator said his House Bill 379 is meant to attract more series like AMC's critically acclaimed "Breaking Bad" and USA Network's "In Plain Sight."
Both series, shot primarily in Albuquerque, lasted five seasons.
HB 379 also would allow the state to carry forward unused film tax credit production funds from previous years, if the state spent less than the current $50 million annual cap. For example, if the state spent only $40 million on the rebates one year, the next year the cap would go up to $60 million.
The bill appears to have legs. One good sign for it was that it only received one committee assignment in the House, to the House Taxation and Revenue Committee.
And Gov. Susana Martinez, who hasn't been one of the biggest backers of the film incentive program in the past, supports at least part of the bill.
"The governor fully supports carrying over unused film incentives from one year to the next," Martinez's spokesman, Enrique Knell, said Monday. It allows us to maximize use of the fund while providing budget certainty."
But, Martinez hasn't committed to support the other part of the legislation.
"We haven't seen the bill yet, and haven't reviewed the proposal to increase the rebate level to 30 percent," Knell said. "That's something we will have to look at."
Martinez in 2011 spent much of her first legislative session criticizing the film incentive program. She frequently made statements like, "I'm not willing to give Hollywood a 25 percent subsidy on the backs of our kids."
However, since the Legislature agreed to the cap on the program that year, she has warmed up to the film industry.
The final eight episodes of Breaking Bad, the story of an Albuquerque high-school science teacher turned methamphetamine producer, will be aired later this year.
Another series, being shot in Las Vegas, N.M., is the A&E network's "Longmire," a crime drama in its second season.

Open Arms: Three Basic Tips to Welcome Production Crews

Breckenridge is one of Colorado’s most production friendly locations, and here’s some tips from Rachel Zerowin of GoBreck on how to welcome and work with incoming film and photo shoots. See why they’ve been so successful in bringing film to Colorado.
by Rachel Zerowin, GoBreck.
We all know that film, video and photos tell stories. When a crew wants to help tell your community’s story, it can be valuable to welcome them with open arms. Of course, permitting processes vary, but no matter the community’s structure or size, considering a few basics can help open the door to productions.
Recognize (and reward) public relations value
Some productions seek nondescript backgrounds that can’t be placed in a specific town. When productions want to identify and show off your signature shots – the locations you use to sell your community – the result is often public relations (PR) value. Say thanks by waiving permitting fees.
Travel programs can show major and obvious PR value but with the wealth of resources in the state, Colorado communities can (and should) think beyond that. A field test of cycling gear can show off mountain bike trails or a commuter cycling network; and a reality TV show on home purchasing may reveal perks of visiting the community. Whatever the focus of the program, be open to how it can share your community’s story, and be willing to give accordingly.
Be a resource
From permitting and parking to knowing the best overlook and which coffee shops open before 6:00 a.m., it’s the little details that can be difficult to wrangle. Even if you don’t have all the answers to every question – and you won’t – assign someone to wrangle. That person should work closely with those who issue permits, and have a connection with, or be willing to contact, local businesses. Additionally, this person can serve as the on-site contact for any on-the-spot questions or requests.
In Breckenridge, crews typically work through town permitting, ski area permitting and permission for private property. Many handle these steps on their own, but some seek our assistance here at the GoBreck office. Beyond sending crews to the appropriate permitting offices, we make ourselves available to be involved as much or as little as requested.
This varies from providing an on-site host, to setting up activities for cast members (often at no charge based on PR value), connecting producers with private property owners, or simply suggesting shoot/b-roll locations.
Be flexible
As crews communicate needs through the permitting process, be flexible and communicate any changes in normal procedures. For example, police/parking would probably be made aware if you issued a longer-term parking permit, but you may also want to notify impacted businesses or the public works department. Consider internal fact sheets so that crews with special permissions aren’t bothered. For those that want a crowd, use your in-town resource to inform businesses, rally crowds and contact media as appropriate.
In addition to fulfilling basic operational requests, be willing to make (or consider) changes for outdoor lighting, schedule demands, street closures, and close-in permitting requests. (Remember the first tip?) We’ve secured lifts, moved event locations/times and worked with activity outfitters to offer special trips. Yes, there will be limitations. But be flexible and be prepared with second and third choices
Rachel Zerowin is the public relations manager for GoBreck, the destination marketing organization for the Town of Breckenridge. GoBreck works closely with the town and the ski resort to assist productions interested in shooting in Breckenridge. The community has hosted everything from movies and catalogue shoots to ski films and reality television programs. For more information on film and video permitting in Breckenridge, visit the Town of Breckenridge website or the Shoot Colorado location guide to Breckenridge.

After the Catch, the Deadliest Catch recap show that relives the last crab fishing season, was shot in Breckenridge in summer 2012. In addition to fulfilling basic operational needs, the town and the ski area hosted a sampling of town’s signature activities and events, including the annual Outhouse Races.

Perfecting the Tapeless Workflow

Guest Blog by Tom Miller, Big Pictures Media
There often comes a point in a shoot day, or week, when the value of the footage we’ve shot exceeds that of the equipment we’re using to shoot it!
You look at the tapes and start to think of the work that was done to capture the footage,
the lighting, the heartfelt storytelling by the subjects, the efforts of the actors and production team.
Or what about the one-time events – the release of the weather balloon, the breeching whale, the explosion, the expensive aerials?
The tapes become – “The Money.”
They’re the only thing I know that can start out the day with a value of twenty bucks, and end the day worth thousands!
So what happens when we’re asked to shoot onto CF Cards, hard drives, P2, SxS, or flash media? I can tell you for those of us who have been shooting twenty years or more, it’s a little unnerving. The footage seems so vulnerable there – bits and bytes of it floating around on little cards and drives. Now granted, tapes have problems too. But at least at the end of the day, you have something physical to look at!
The challenge then is to get over our neuroses and fully embrace the tapeless workflow, and make it as safe (or even safer) than shooting onto tape or film.
Here’s how we do that here at Big Pictures:
First we always have at least two portable drives on the set. One of them can be ours, and one can be the client’s. We carry Lacie 500GB Rugged Firewire drives (or similar). With us, it’s just part of the package when we’re shooting with our nanoFlash, 5D, P2 camera, F3, or any number of our other tapeless configurations. We have created a “Media Management Kit” that includes all the adaptors, drives, and cables we need – along with a Macbook Pro loaded with Shotput Pro.
Then we simply download the cards to one of the drives via a laptop, and then copy it over to another. Or download to both drives concurrently (there’s some great software that helps with this – like Shotput Pro.) One drive goes with (or gets shipped to) the client, and the other stays with us. Once the first drive makes it to the edit suite and is backed up, we can release the second drive.
Now this of course begs the question of who does all this downloading and backing up in the middle of the busy shoot day. If it’s a big enough shoot, and there is a lot of footage, it’s great to have a Media Manager on the set who can handle this. This can be anyone from a well-trained PA to a Media Manager. Sometimes the producer takes on this role. Otherwise, it’s up to the camera crew. We just build it into the day.
Our HDX900-nanoFlash combination gives you the best of all worlds – as we can concurrently roll on tape, and the nanoFlash’s CF cards. This gives you the tapeless workflow with the extra protection of tape backups and archiving.
If done properly, tapeless production can be an amazingly efficient way to work. But for those of us who have worked with film and tape for so many years, it takes a little getting used to. Instead of handing the client a box of 30-minute cassettes at the end of the day, you hand them a drive. And if something happens to that drive, you always have a backup – which is more than you can say for that box of tapes!
