The Best Alternative to Film Emporium

vs

Looking for a powerful alternative to Film Emporium? Then look no further than Wrapbook, an insurance provider and payroll company that makes covering your next shoot easy and affordable.

1. Payroll + Insurance

In order to run a shoot, you typically need two things: production insurance to protect yourself from fault and a payroll company to keep yourself compliant with the law.

Besides making onboarding and cutting checks easy, using a payroll company is often required when working with unions like SAG.

While Film Emporium can take care of the former, you’re out on your own to find a payroll company.

Wrapbook provides both services under one roof. In addition to providing lowest cost insurance to you, Wrapbook’s interface allows you to track timesheets and expenses, run your payroll in real time, and onboard your entire production digitally.

Drawing from the latest tax codes, Wrapbook calculates employer taxes automatically and provides worker’s comp insurance, which most insurance agencies do not.

These in tandem make Wrapbook one of the best film insurance agencies.

2. 100% Customizable

You shouldn’t have to pay for things you don’t use. And your insurance policy shouldn’t be any different.

Whether you choose Film Emporium or Wrapbook, at the end of the day, all film insurance agencies are just re-packaging the same policies from the same parent companies.

Wrapbook ensures you get the most coverage for the lowest cost to you. By giving us the details of your shoot on our intuitive quote builder, our insurance agents carefully craft a policy custom made to your shoot.

Stop paying for policies you don’t need on your shoot, so you can put more of your budget into your project. Only pay for what you need.

In order to best serve you, we offer short term production insurance, annual DICE policies, and film equipment insurance. All of which are fully customizable.

3. 24/7 Certificates of Insurance

In the film industry, things move a mile a minute at the last minute.

In order to secure locations or rent equipment, you’ll need to show a certificate of insurance (CIO) to prove you’re covered.

And perhaps even more frustratingly, onboarding crew and running payroll are treated as two separate entities – despite the fact that they share essential information.

Both Film Emporium and Wrapbook allow you to spin up CIOs in an instant. Using a web-portal with Wrapbook, you can always load your certificates of insurance whenever you like.

No more calling your insurance agent and waiting for them to fax you a COI.

When talent and crew are onboarded, Wrapbook gathers their tax information upfront.

Preview your payroll instantly without ever involving an accountant.

6. Insurance + Payroll

In order to run a shoot, you typically need two things: production insurance to protect yourself from fault and a payroll company to keep yourself compliant with the law.

Besides making onboarding and cutting checks easy, using a payroll company is often required when working with unions like SAG.

While EP can process your payroll, they do not offer insurance at this time.

Wrapbook provides both services under one roof. In addition to providing some of the affordable entertainment solutions on the market, Wrapbook can customize unique insurance packages so you can stay compliant with any union for the lowest cost to you.

Drawing from the latest tax codes, Wrapbook calculates employer taxes automatically and provides worker’s comp insurance, which most insurance agencies do not.

These in tandem make Wrapbook one of the best film insurance agencies.

Take a Test Drive

Like so many things in entertainment, most decisions regarding payroll are made on recommendations from friends – people who have worked with vendors who cut checks on time and responded in a timely manner.

While you might have to wait to get a quote from Entertainment Partners, it’s absolutely free to demo Wrapbook which you can do instantly.

Set up a mock production, collect timesheets, onboard your team, and get everything just the way you like it. You take a new car for a spin before you buy it. Shouldn’t processing millions of dollars operate similarly?

Wrapbook only charges a fraction of a percent when you finally cut the checks or pay out via direct deposit. Plus, Wrapbook doesn’t require a payroll bond, so you can pay your crew without having to front your entire budget upfront.

Wrapbook is the best alternative to Entertainment Partners Payroll

Because it allows filmmakers and producers to put more money into their projects’ actual budget. Producing a film is a long and difficult process. Entertainment payroll shouldn’t be.

Why I Switched to Wrapbook

"Wrapbook took great pains to understand the types of risk my production company was undertaking. And whenever I have a question, I have never have trouble getting in touch in a flash."
