EP was profiled in an article in Variety entitled, Showbiz Payroll Systems Reach for the Cloud, which discusses the industry’s move from manual, paper processes to digital, cloud-based systems. The feature notes the EP and Ease merger and the technology offerings of each company. “We want to create a paperless production environment, adding automation efficiency to the workforce management processes,” says Myfa Cirinna, Entertainment Partners’ EVP of Marketing and Sales.
The article also discusses the use of production incentives, and the role our EP Financial Solutions team played in the financing for Mr. Right, the action comedy feature that will close the Toronto Film Festival. “The producers had raised a good portion of equity for the film,” says EP film finance head John Hadity. “We did the tax credit loan, and the balance came from the bank.”
