John Finn, founder and CEO of Greenslate, remembers the good old days — and they weren’t that good. In 1995, when he first got into the independent film industry, he was a freelance production accountant, loaning himself out to productions where every penny counted. The standard practices of production accounting were daunting back then: there were seas of paperwork, year-end production company tax filings were strenuous efforts, and, on set, accountants would spend entire days running around just trying to get signatures on start paperwork from producers and crew members.
Entertainment industry production payroll specialist Indiepay has rebranded itself as GreenSlate, unveiling enhanced payroll and accounting software, Variety has learned exclusively.
Indiepay, the fastest-growing provider of payroll, financial and tax credits services to the film and TV industry, announced today that it has expanded and relocated their LA office. Indiepay is now located at 11835 West Olympic Boulevard, Los Angeles, CA 90064. The new phone number at this office is (310) 789-2001.
