About Us

01 We put the crew in Cast & Crew

Quality, integrity and security. We value our values.

Cast & Crew has changed a great deal since we opened our doors in 1976. But our focus on providing you with exceptional service and the industry’s best solutions has not changed. That’s why we are the premier provider of technology-enabled payroll, accounting and production workflow solutions to the entertainment industry.

In 2016, we made two noteworthy acquisitions — screenwriting software leader Final Draft and CAPS Payroll, a leader in the commercials, music, live events and venues verticals. We’re an integrated organization today and team members from all three companies play a critical role in our combined culture and transformation into the leader in digital solutions.

We have long-standing relationships across each of the verticals in which we operate. The reason: because your next production or show or event is our number one priority.

Our backstory.
