Save time and get better results

  • Paperless Background

    There’s enough going on during a shoot without having to worry about paperwork. We take care of the I9s, W4s, and release forms for you ahead of the production. At wrap, we deliver a folder containing all signed documents. Digitally.

  • Real-Time Skins

    Last minute changes are a part of every production. PDF skins are great but they don’t change once printed. Our “On-set” app shows you who is on set at all times, and provides you with contact information, additional pictures and much, much more.

  • Running Late

    When your talent is stuck in a traffic jam at 7am, be the first to know with our “Running Late” feature. With the push of a button, Cast & Crew can safely and easily let you know their ETA.

  • MPV & NDBs

    Entertainment rules are complex. And at the end of the day, it’s easy to miss a detail or forget a meal penalty.

    Our platform lets you enter all types of meal breaks, including Grace and Non-Deductible Breakfasts. From there, we calculate wages and include meal penalties where they apply. No more squinting at the back of your production reports for zeros and ones!

  • SAG-AFTRA Rules

    Our software helps you track how many SAG-AFTRA actors have been booked, and always uses the right language to differentiate an availability request from an official booking so you're covered when it comes to union regulations. 

  • Taft Hartley

    When you need to upgrade a non-union extra, we make it easy for you. In one click, you can change the way an actor’s payroll is calculated.

    With our automated taft hartley form, you can generate a pdf with the performer’s information already filled in. Choose the reason for the taft hartley from a drop-down menu (or type it in) and you are done!

  • Auto Wrap Reports

    Thanks to Castifi's platform, you have all the information you need to generate wrap reports. Whether it’s a background breakdown, a production report, or a payroll edit, Castifi’s report tool lets you export any document anytime.

  • Back of PR Export

    No one looks forward to waiting around after wrap to make sure daily time sheets are collected. With Castifi, your crew’s daily times are entered by each freelancer and fed back into your Production Report. In a couple of clicks, you can send your production office all the information they need to go to bed with the assurance that you ran a successful set.

  • Mass Messaging

    Whether it’s vital information or just handy, our platform lets you send text messages and emails to your cast & crew. And, as with all Castifi features, this can be done directly from your phone.
