LOS ANGELES, Feb. 27, 2024 /PRNewswire/ — Impact Crew today announced a partnership with Warner Bros. Discovery and Netflix aimed at improving the way productions source and hire crew talent.

Impact Crew will work closely with Warner Bros. Discovery and Netflix productions to build new custom features and reporting tools, specifically tailored to meet each studio’s hiring and talent management needs. “We’re thrilled to be working with two of the most innovative studios in the industry to optimize the way that global productions assemble, hire, and onboard the incredible crew talent who bring stories to life,” said Impact Crew Co-Founder and CEO, Tyler Mitchell

Impact Crew has a specialized search engine that can filter its 600,000 crew network by role, location, association, and genre to pinpoint the best candidates for the job. Executives and Department Heads can then use Impact’s AvailCheck feature, an advanced hiring tool that automatically creates hiring grids for each job and tracks crew responses in real time.

AvailCheck has been used to source crew for over 100 productions, engaging over 4,700 qualified crew with job opportunities. This innovative tool significantly streamlines the hiring process, which collectively takes hundreds to thousands of hours of executives’ and department heads’ time during pre-production.  Warner Bros. Discovery and Netflix productions will also have exclusive access to Impact’s AvailCheck PRO service, an internal team dedicated to rapidly sourcing available crew in 24 hours or less, seven days a week.

Impact Crew’s mission is to create a better, faster, more inclusive industry for everyone, by uniting all the people who power it – studios, producers, executives, HoDs, crew, and assistants, on one platform. Crew members are encouraged to update their profiles to maximize their visibility as productions begin to ramp up. Similarly, hiring executives and department heads are invited to explore the enriched pool of talent available, ensuring their next hire is just a click away.
