How We Help Independent Producers

Saving money and working more efficiently is easy with Indiepay. For more than a decade emerging filmmakers and experienced producers have turned to Indiepay for high-touch service, innovative technology and industry expertise. With tight budgets and even tighter time frames, you need a responsive partner who understands. 

You could save 20% or more on your payroll

Because your payroll costs represent a significant line item in your budget, every dollar you save matters. We get that – we were the first in the industry to offer an alternative to the traditional Employer of Record model. We help productions save thousands in unnecessary fringe charges by taking advantage of much lower new employer rates for state unemployment insurance (SUI) and workers’ compensation. See how we can drive savings* for your budget:


*Percentage of savings varies, depending on state and budget circumstances

Going the extra mile to meet your unique needs

While productions of any scale can benefit from Indiepay, independent producers choose us because they know that the level of service they receive doesn’t depend on the size of their budget. We’ll guide you through everything, from the budgeting process to handling your fringes and meeting all your union obligations.
