To maintain the smooth running of the production, production updates as well as cost and variance reports were scheduled. We acted as lead contacts for the broadcaster’s production management and finance teams and, working alongside a freelance Production Accountant, implemented cash flow and invoicing as agreed with Sky, and took care of pay roll and pensions where needed.
Throughout filming, we dealt with all compliance, H&S, and legal issues, including the lawful contracting of freelancers and suppliers, and the drafting of risk assessments. With children featuring heavily in the production, this involved checking and obtaining the relevant licences, drafting a Child Protection Policy, and making sure it was always adhered to.
As production partners, our final contribution to the making of the series involved completing post-production paperwork and overseeing the smooth supply of the programme and all deliverables to the broadcaster.
