Movie Measure

@nathanrussell, you were paid for all your January work a couple of days into February. We explained then that we had some payment system issues with paypal. We had resolved those with them and that February work would be paid at the end of February. You then accused us of being semantically incorrect, despite us sending paypal payments on Feb 28. Note, bank transfers went out on Mar 1. These are for trailer checks. For installs, we do not pay when you are done; we pay when the project is complete. There are too many moving parts to pay out mid-project. However, Accounting has paid YOU specially. We have now closed your account, and you are free to seek work and payment terms from other firms. I am sorry to see you go. Your work was all approved, but your approach and attitude, including your accusatory style makes you no joy to work with. As any company does, we have had, and will have problems in the future - we need our team to work as a team. Good luck. Rakesh

They are legit from what i understand. I was contacted originally via facebook and then by phone call. However i have not performed any checks for them yet as 1. I was warned of payment issues by the person who contacted me via facebook and 2. I had read here that people were still having payment issues so ive been kinda reluctant to accept anything until they get those issues worked out because all though i am understanding that things happen some times and that new companies have to work out the bugs i work because i need money not just for something to do. So yes they are a legit company but im not real sure about everybody getting paid what they are supposed to be paid and when they are supposed to be paid so if you lovely people could keep me updated on that part it would be awesome!
@kellycowger They had some issues, but they communicated to their checkers well. I love how responsive they are. I get emails informing me of upcoming assignments, and when I had a problem with the app, I was able to reach a live person while I was in the theater. I've done trailer checks for them since February. The app is really easy to use and because it's real-time submission, there is no need to go home and enter the result which is awesome. I am assigned to my permanent theater, so when there is work there, I get the first pick. Can't complain!
What is their payment schedule & method? I have asked them several times but have never gotten a straight answer.
Hello @stormraven73 @Chickster and @kellycowger . Firstly, thank you for taking the time to post and share your thoughts. We absolutely had some payment issues earlier in the year. We had started with Venmo to allow us to pay without asking for personal details. The problem was that we instantly blew any limits Venmo had. This caused some people to be paid, and others not. So we fixed it. We have a new Accounting Team. We have moved to Paypal and Bank deposit. That worked much better in February and will be even smoother in March. There will always be issues about payments, as we have to pay for approved work, and sometimes we and the checkers may not agree on what has happened, but we do our best to work that out,. Other issues can arise when we had paid people via Venmo but they had not claimed it. We marked it as paid, but the checker has not received it. We hope that won't happen with the new payment methods. In terms of schedule, we pay monthly for trailer checks. SO if you do a trailer check in March, and the data is approved, you will get paid at the end of the month. We need to implement that same approach for Ads and for Installations.

If you still have concerns about payment methods or approach, please email accounting@movie-measure.com and we will make sure we get back to you.
Thanks
I used the app for the first time this weekend. It works well. I found the auto detect of the trailers doesn't work well for trailers with no talking like Frozen 2. You need an android phone or iphone to do the trailer checks. It seems like they've taken over from certified. I referred another friend and she finds it convenient too.
How do you gain access to the theater? With Marketforce and verites they provide a letter of approval from the studio, I asked the manager last week if anyone has been doing trailer checks using cell phones and he said no one has been there since me last year. (when marketforce lost the contract) So how are the cell phone people getting in? Or are some locations just going uncovered?

In my experience you just tell them you are there to do trailer checks and mention the company name, Movie Measure. Worse comes to worse there is an authorization letter in the e-mail you get from Movie Measure. Quite frankly as long as you don't stay in the theater after the trailers check most of the theaters don't care as who would show up and willingly sit through trailers multiple times for free?
Hi @any007 , thanks for the post. We recommend that you start the auto listen when you feel the trailer sounds are audible, but if it doesn't pick it up, just listen again. We saw Frozen automatically match multiple times over the past projects. One other tip - kill other apps on your phone during the trailer checks. Apps like Facebook use your microphone without you knowing, and if that is open, that could interfere with your trailer listening. You can just open facebook after the trailer check is done. Thanks!!
Hey @Alwaysringstwice and @weatherman2111 A few things. Our clients have introduced us to most corporate offices of the theaters, so they know us. However, you can always find a theater that has an issue. We have the authorization in the app to help prevent any mis use (the letter getting into the wrong hands etc). Finally, we are always available during check times to assist. The golden rule is not avoid any confrontation. We've had that before and (generally) prevented any major problem from developing. Which location were you referring to that had not been checked? Would you like to be the checker there? Thanks
I have been chasing payment for my first two assignments for weeks now, and getting nothing but runaround. "I will look into it" doesn't pay my bills or answer my questions. I get replies to my emails, but they are always nonsequiteurs or non-answers. Thankfully I am only out $20, but I will be putting this company on my 10-foot-pole list for at least a year.
