The company recently announced a new line of products designed specifically for filmmakers. The groundbreaking anamorphic lens will retail for approximately $149, and allow iPhone, Galaxy, and Pixel owners to capture extra wide images, complete with cinematic lens flare.

When hiring independent contractors, they should provide you with proof of their General Liability Insurance policy. 


Actual independent contractors operating their own business have a "risk of loss," and as such, should protect themselves with a General Liability policy. 

HOWEVER, it is your responsibility as the hiring party to make sure you are covered from ALL angles. Make certain your independent contractor provides a certificate of General Liability and names your company as additional insured. It also wouldn't hurt to have a written contract indemnifying your company for liability claims. 

The hiring of independent contractors remains one of the most confusing issues for managers throughout the film and television production industry.

Cutting Corners on Payroll Creates Compliance Nightmares 

Though largely unintentional, payroll shortcuts and cut corners are putting corporations at significant risk of legal entanglement. 

A recent survey of more than 800 American payroll professionals, conducted by the The Workforce Institute  at  Kronos Incorporated, discovered that a majority had experienced  "questionable" practices regarding HR and payroll compliance at their workplaces. Many of these instances were not malicious, but stemmed from employees being overworked or understaffed.
