More than four decades of quality, integrity and security.

Cast & Crew Entertainment Services celebrated its 40th anniversary in 2016, but our focus has not changed since we opened our doors in 1976. That’s why we are the premier provider of technology-enabled payroll and production-management services to the entertainment industry.

The year 2016 was a special year for other reasons, as well, as Cast & Crew made two important acquisitions — screenwriting software leader Final Draft and CAPS Payroll, a leader in the commercials, music, live events and venues verticals.  Team members across all three companies are playing a critical role in Cast & Crew’s transformation into a provider of digital payroll- and production-management solutions.

We have long-standing relationships with major studios, top producers and production companies in the industry. These industry giants — and a steadily growing number of prestigious independent companies — don’t just select Cast & Crew for a single production, they continue to work with us, year after year.

Your next production is our number one priority.


Lynn Johnson discusses how the integration of Final Draft and CAPS Payroll is a reflection of the heart of Cast & Crew.


Cast & Crew’s commitment is to provide service that goes above and beyond what is expected. We anticipate your needs, find creative solutions to your issues and support you every step of the way.
