On Saturday, March 2, Production Accounting and Crew Service (PACS) International led an Introduction to Film & Television Accounting workshop at Georgia State University as part of Atlanta Film Festival 365 year long programing. It was hosted in partnership with Atlanta Film Festival 365 and Women in Film and Television in Atlanta (WIFTA), in order to educate the public about career opportunities in production accounting in the film and television industries.
Two expert production accountants led the workshop: Lisa Annitti (Production Accountant on the hit ABC show Revenge) and Cheryl Jenkins (CEO of PACS International). More than 50 people attended to learn about the daily responsibilities of production accountants and the importance of their role in the production process.
The workshop was created as part of PACS International’s mission to fill the need for quality accounting services in the film and television industries, especially in the state of Georgia as it’s growingly becoming a hub for entertainment production.
PACS International will offer Phase II of the accounting workshop for those interested in receiving additional hands-on training (completion of Phase I is mandatory to attend). Attendees who successfully complete the second workshop will be able to explore career opportunities in production accounting at PACS.
