Projects can mean many things in the entertainment world. In Wrapbook, a project is a container for all the workers you will pay, reimburse, and share documents with for the course of a single production.
Each project that you work on should be entered in as a new project within Wrapbook—be it a feature film, short, commercial, event, or television episode. If a particular production project will shoot in multiple states, you will also need to create a separate project for each state. Each separate project within Wrapbook will ensure that the payroll run for a shoot in a particular state will stay compliant with that state’s tax legislature.
To create a project, you’ll need:
Providing details about your project will help us determine your Workers Compensation Application. As an Employer of Record, Wrapbook provides Workers Compensation for workers (Employees and Loan Outs) as a part of the cost of running payroll and disburses those payments when and if needed.
Certain project types and situations may lead to more questions. Specialized workers and stunts (such as stunt work on aircraft) demand higher safety standards and take longer for approval. Please submit projects with details about how you intend to mitigate risk to these workers further in advance so as to ensure timely approval.
For projects that include union workers, set up your project as employing all worker types. You will also have to elect what unions you’ll be utilizing for the particular project. If you don’t know which Unions will be represented during the project, you can still add additional unions throughout the run of your project. However, you will need to add them into the system prior to hiring in order to be able to process your payroll.
In addition to filling out the union information, provide your contract agreement with the union and your contracts with your workers as well as any timekeeping or additional union specific information. Upload these documents to the documents folder in the project settings menu.
