As you probably know, Georgia is quickly becoming the go-to state for film and television productions. Our state’s lucrative tax incentive program has made this an exciting time for those in the entertainment industry. In order to meet the demands of the burgeoning Southeast, Production Accounting and Crew Services, LLC, Atlanta Film Festival 365 and Women in Film & Television in Atlanta (WIFTA) are partnering on a preparatory seminar that will introduce job opportunities in production accounting. Mark your calendars for Saturday, March 2, 2013, as this will be Phase I of this monumental seminar. During this phase, attendees will learn the role and the importance of all the positions in the accounting department.
- Accounting Clerk
- 2nd Assistant Accountant,
- 1st Assistant Accountant
- Payroll Accountant
- Key Accountant or Estimator
You will also learn the day-to-day responsibilities of each position and how the records they process are used to present important financial information to producers and studio executives. After Phase I, you will be knowledgeable enough to know if the accounting department is right for you! Immediately following, Production Accounting and Crew Services (PACS) will offer Phase II of the accounting seminar where each participant will receive hands on training. Each person in attendance will walk away with enough knowledge and the skill set required to work for PACS in the accounting department on a film or television show.
**Please Note that attendance in the first seminar is mandatory for participation in phase two, “Film & Television Accounting Seminar: 102.”**
