"HBO, it's so kind of by the book," Bannat said. "Everybody who got any sort of payment, location fee, they'd have to fill out an agreement and W-9 and put a check request into accounting and wait for the check. ... Otherwise HBO wouldn't reimburse you. There would be no way to track it. ... You still had to get their Social Security number. A smaller indie movie will pay out cash, but by and large they have to track all their expenditures to qualify for certain rebates from the state and that sort of thing."
