Media Services is releasing the 2011-2012 Showbiz Labor Guide and hosting its first launch party for the local production community on Oct. 6 from 6:00–9:00 p.m. at the Taj Lounge in New York’s Chelsea district.
More than 300 film, television, and commercial producers, accountants and other production professionals are expected to attend the industry event to network and enjoy drinks, hors d’oeuvres, and prize drawings.
The Showbiz Labor Guide is a budgeting and accounting tool for film, television, commercials, Internet and music video production. Published annually, the guide lists up-to-date rates and contracts from all major guilds and unions including IATSE, DGA, WGA, SAG as well as working conditions for every major production center in North America including Los Angeles, New York, Chicago and Canada. The event will feature a special presentation of Media Services’ new software endowment, the Showbiz Software Grant Award.
“We are committed to supporting the entertainment industry and are excited this grant will help emerging talent with what we consider the best software tools in the industry,” said Media Services’ VP of sales and software development Steve Bizenov. “New York is home to one of this nation’s top production centers and we are thrilled to be a part of the community.”
