TiM offers a variety of commonly used forms as pre-built TiM Templates to help you build Packet Templates as quickly as possible. If necessary, you can customize most TiM Templates to meet your production's specific needs.
For guidance on customizing Templates and the tools available in the Builder, see: Building Startwork
Don't see the form you're looking for? TiM Template out of date?
Email a PDF of the form you need to firstname.lastname@example.org and our team can assist to build the form on your behalf!
Please note, TiM does not provide or build forms unique to your company.
Any forms that are unique to your production company (such as a Crew Deal Memo, NDA, Appearance Release, COI, etc.) can be uploaded and built by you! (In fact, this is the intention of TiM - to allow production teams to manage their own forms!)
For instructions, please see: How to upload & build Company Forms

TiM has a variety of payroll forms for different payroll companies available as pre-built TiM Templates. Commonly used types of payroll forms include:
- Start form
- Box/kit rental inventory
- Direct deposit form*
* If your Project is processing payroll with Media Services, Cast & Crew, or CAPS, employees can go to My Cast & Crew to register for direct deposit. Click here for instructions from the Cast & Crew Help Center on how to register for direct deposit.
Pro Tip: There is a pre-built memo regarding direct deposit for Cast & Crew, Media Services, and CAPS clients. In the builder, look under the category "Payroll Forms" -- the Template is named "Direct Deposit Memo - Cast & Crew, Media Services, and/or CAPS."
Union Forms (DGA Deal Memos, SAG-AFTRA Contracts, Dues Auth Forms, etc.)
Since union forms or contracts might be updated by a union at any time, for good measure we like to confirm that what we have in our system is up-to-date.
If you need union-specific forms included in your packets, please email a PDF of the form you need to email@example.com, and our team will cross-reference the TiM Templates in our system against the form provided by the union, to ensure you're distributing the most recent version of the form.
If what's in our system does not match what you've provided, the TiM Team will build the union-specific form on your behalf.
