November 14, 2018

Have a passion for numbers but still want to do something meaningful with your talents? That was exactly the conundrum John Finn found himself in as a young man.

His creative drive as an artist led him to the film industry and to the creation of GreenSlate, a payroll and accounting company for the film industry. Join us on FILMCAST for this fascinating discussion about accounting, creativity, digital software solutions for production... and John's professional basketball playing father (yup!).

Listen in to our FILMCAST conversation, learn more about what EP does and how you can get involved if you think you have the skills and passion for this side of the industry.
