Sargent-Disc Payroll & Accounting Newsletter March 2019
SD Payroll Newsletter
Dear Subscriber,

We recently contributed to Broadcast magazine with an article looking into how the FAANGs have changed the landscape of television, increasing the opportunities for producing high-concept drama, and how Digital Production Office® software can ease the pressures of scaled-up budgets, larger crews and the overall impact on sustainability.

On a similiar note, we shared the importance of contracting crew at a seminar held in partnership with the Production Guild of Great Britain,
highlighting how digital systems can make the onboarding process more efficient.

Over the past few months Sargent-Disc has supported the RTS Programme Awards as a Major Patron, and our National Film and Television School scholars and their peers at the 2019 Graduation Ceremony. In the upcoming months, we will be holding a number of Movie Magic Budgeting and Scheduling, and Vista Accounting training courses - read on to find out more.
