Meet Wrapbook: The Best Alternative to Film Emporium

Looking for a powerful alternative to Film Emporium? Then look no further than Wrapbook, a powerful new insurance provider and payroll company in one.

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.

While Film Emporium can take care of the former, you’re out on your own to find a payroll company. Besides making onboarding and cutting checks easy, using a payroll company is often required when working with unions like SAG.

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.

Easily track who hasn't submitted their start paperwork so you know who to text passive aggressively.

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.
