Wave goodbye to receipts
Parts of the production are filmed here. Others nearby. And then there’s that scene 300 miles away. That’s just how it is in this business. All the expenses generated by getting cast and crew from A to B are kept under control with Pleo.01 / 05
Food and drink
Everyone needs a break between scenes. A little time to relax, drink some water, have a coffee, recharge with some sustenance… that’s a lot of mouths to feed. If you manage it all with Pleo, you can have total peace of mind.02 / 05
Props and filming equipment
Suddenly need a Roman costume for a new scene? Send someone out to find one, buy it with a Pleo card,... Problem solved. Maybe you need a particular kind of chair, half a dozen eggs, an eye patch or an old radio-cassette player… for anything that’s an expense, there’s Pleo.03 / 05
A lot of cash is moved around when making a movie. With Pleo, you can keep track of every single penny spent. For the times your team needs to pay for something using cash, they can be reimbursed instantly.04 / 05
Let’s get technical…
Filming in the 21st century is different to how it was back in the 1960s. The technological element is much bigger now, from camera supports for filming on the move, to computers for rendering digital backgrounds. And, naturally, you can manage all the expenses involved with Pleo. Manage the cost of all those moving parts with Pleo.05 / 05
And the Oscar goes to… Pleoooo!
People left out-of-pocket?
Settle your teams’ reimbursements instantly. Rome wasn’t built in a day, and neither is a movie. Everyone involved, whether they’re permanent or only have a few lines will have expenses. With Pleo, they won’t have to dip into their own wallet.
Once it’s a wrap, your team will pass those receipts to the bookkeeping department, who might take a few weeks to reimburse an actor that £10. It’s a pain, isn’t it?
Effortless and uncomplicated. The typical nightmare of checking paperwork, dates, quantities… it’s all in the past, because with Pleo that work is done in real-time.
All that time spent wondering how you’ll get hold of the second camera assistant to explain the £15 receipt for a lunch during the shoot. Doubts and questions run high and it would take too long to clear everything up.
As happy as can be. Whether it’s the next Oscar nominee or the person who brings the coffees, they all feel independent and important, and the mood on set is fantastic.
Always with half a mind on expenses, having to put their own money in when there’s a purchase needed that they shouldn’t have to pay for themselves. But of course, there’s no company card, so that’s just how it is 😐
Feeling great. No time wasted on reimbursements, thinking about who is paying for what, or who owes how much to whom. Everyone else can just get on with their work, and you can do yours.
Chasing and herding all the cast and crew, who seem pretty distracted and not very focused on their work. And, of course, you end up frustrated because you feel like that’s not your job. It’s out of control!
Your company (whether it’s a temporary enterprise or otherwise)
All your expenses are under control, everyone has been paid on time and you can get on with planning your next production. No need to keep looking back!
Funnily enough, winding a production up can be the most painful part of the whole process. With mountains of admin and paperwork to sort through, it can be chaos. Yikes! Never be without complete control of your expenses again.
One for the Razzies 👎
