You might be familiar with Wrapbook’s digital solutions for payroll and production management, but how much do you know about the people who make it all happen? Behind the software, Wrapbook is driven by a team of incredible human beings who each bring unique skills, experience, and expertise to the table.
In this post, we’re taking our community on a backstage tour to meet some of the humans leading Wrapbook and forging successful relationships with our clients. Join us below, as we celebrate the passion, perspectives, and personalities that bring Wrapbook to life.
Cameron Woodward knows all about the struggles of traditional payroll. After all, he was an executive producer at his own production company. It gave him firsthand experience with the problems - and mountains of paperwork - that production teams face every day.
That’s why Cameron co-founded Wrapbook in 2019.
With Wrapbook, Cameron is helping to craft a digital-first alternative to traditional payroll and production insurance. By replacing inefficient manual processes with streamlined digital tools, Cameron believes that Wrapbook is a faster, easier, and less costly payroll solution for filmmakers everywhere.
See more from Cameron below, as he talks to the producers at Smartypants about their Oscar nomination for Stranger at the Gate:
Formerly the Director of Media & Labor Economics at SAG-AFTRA, Paul Schoeman is now Wrapbook’s resident expert on unions and guilds. He brings hands-on contract and compliance expertise to the innovative tech solutions built into Wrapbook.
Wrapbook is designed for professional filmmakers, and the world of professional filmmaking is deeply connected to labor organizations. Paul and his team make sure that Wrapbook is up-to-date and in-the-know on the latest union contracts, regulations, and concerns.
They also work tirelessly on new Wrapbook features built specifically for union productions, like the ability to automatically calculate LA IATSE and Teamster timecards.
Paul brings decades of in-depth contract experience to the Wrapbook team, but you don’t have to take our word for it. Just watch the video below to see how Paul breaks down the SAG-AFTRA Basic Agreement like a pro:
Paul’s presence on the team demonstrates Wrapbook’s commitment to the entire production community. His unique voice and skillset help optimize the Wrapbook experience for production companies and crew members alike.
He’s also a snappy dresser and living historian for all things SAG. Ask him about his Ronald Reagan-era Screen Actor’s Guild cufflinks when you get the chance!
