Information about our popular Calendars:
Movie Maker Calendar - 2018-20 - This 3-year calendar format was created for our clients, who need a longer view to the future. Each one is "personalized" with your name; your name with company name smaller below; or company name alone. The front-side displays a 15-month view of the current year (2018) + first 3 months of the following year (2019). On the back-side, the following 2 years (2019 and 2020) are displayed (all 24 months), plus our popular "legend of holidays" for the current year (2018). Work holidays for the USA, Canada, U.K. and Mexico are color-coded in all 3 years. The Movie Maker Calendar is our standard for production and post-production scheduling.
Producer's Calendar - 2018-19- This 2-year calendar is also Personalized in the same way as the Movie Maker Calendar. The 2-year Producer's Calendar covers all movie union work holidays in 4 countries for the years 2018 and 2019 (each year is a full page side on the double-sided calendar).
We are not currently publishing an edition for Toronto.
With the new opportunities provided by state tax incentives legislation across the USA, the need to budget correctly for crews in these states is very important. The Area Standards Tool sorts out different rates and jurisdictions for the IATSE (other than LA & NY jurisdictions). It also has some of the Teamsters rates in frequently-used areas. If you’re shooting in the USA outside of LA or NY, you’ll want this Tool.
This status page is updated regularly to provide you with the latest information.
