The Apply4 team combines unique experience in film production, events management and software development.
We started creating online applications for film and event administrators working in local government in 2007. We have evolved our products since then, in response to our clients’ needs, and now have over 70 clients in the USA, Canada and the United Kingdom.
Andrew spent many years working in film production before applying his industry knowledge to software development, to improve the way permits are processed. With his wealth of experience managing inflexible film schedules and limited budgets, Andrew knew that efficient software could make all the difference. For this reason, the first product he developed was FilmApp. The benefits to Events became obvious very quickly and Apply4 Technology’s product portfolio has grown accordingly.
Karen worked freelance in the film industry for many years, in locations, production and post production. She began working with business partner, Andrew Pavord in 2007 and set up FilmFixer and Apply4 Technology in 2009. Karen has a wealth of industry knowledge and understands better than anyone how important it is for communication to be clear and error free. As CEO of both companies, Karen is responsible for keeping both organisations on track.
