"Nothing has ever been wrong. Other payroll services are such a pain. I think the ONE time I needed to call EP, everything was taken care of immediately. Best in the biz right here!"

Brittney B. | Producer

"If you want to break into [the] industry, you should take EP Production Accounting 101. I was placed with an HBO show two weeks after I finished the class and I have been working in the industry since then. Currently I’m working as a 2nd Assistant on my third show."

Helian V. | Class of 2019

“[Even] with a sizable group of competitive software available these days, I have not found one that can replace the functionality of EP software. The ability to scale between a short student budget and a 100M budget is also something I don't see with other commercial software.”

Eric R. | Line Producer

"I have been using Movie Magic Scheduling Program since 1992. I had always received excellent technical support combined with unique personal care. I have called them for help while filming in Africa, I have called them from Siberia and Puerto Rico - always available and always super helpful!"

Leo Z. | 1st AD
