Stunt Insurance Can Be A Life Saver

Almost every movie or production has some level of stunt activity. And it is these brave men and women who can make the difference between a good scene and a great scene. Even training films often include stunts as part of the production.  However, many traditional insurance packages don’t automatically cover stunt work. We can provide the right kind of insurance for your production company.

We can provide special stunt coverage for many of the productions you are involved in. Producers and production companies can attain coverage for the following… Stunts, aerial scenes, falls, fight scenes, recreational vehicles, water scenes, weapons, precision driving, and animals.

Many insurance companies provide special stunt coverage packages for film productions. The insurance company provides quotes per stunts performed during film shoots.

Short Term Entertainment Insurance

Every day in Los Angles there are literally dozens of production companies shooting, commercials, training films, full length motion pictures and documentaries. All these activities bring with them unique risks that should be insured. And when it comes to entertainment insurance,

Here is a short overview of what you might consider:

  • Rented Equipment
  • Owned Equipment
  • Cast Coverage
  • Props, Sets and Wardrobe
  • Negative & Faulty Stock
  • Third Party Property Damage
  • Extra Expense
  • General Liability
  • Automobile Liability and Physical Damage
  • Workers Compensation

Once a film, television pilot, commercial, or documentary is finished, the next step is normally distribution. Most distributors will require the production company obtain an Errors and Omissions policy on the production. If you are a distributor, you should always carry your own E&O policy, in addition to requiring each of the productions you distribute to be covered. When purchasing your insurance policies, it is once again important to remember that the amount of coverage you purchase is wholly dependent upon the type of project you’re working on.

What Is The Best Way To Manage Your Entertainment Insurance?

An Entertainment Insurance Update

We recommend you start 2018 strong by having us complete a review of your entertainment insurance program.  We will review your exposures to risk and compare these to your current coverage.  If we do not find any gaps, we will tell you, and if we do find gaps, we will provide recommendations to you.

Here are some things you can do today to strengthen your business insurance program for 2018:

  1. Read your insurance policies. It is better to know what coverage you have before a loss occurs.
  2. Meet with your agent and have him/her review your program and make recommendations.
  3. Review your losses over the past few years and determine if there are any areas where improved safety might help reduce losses.
  4. Take advantage of any loss prevention services offered by your business insurer.
  5. Consider adding additional coverage like Professional liability, media liability, or copyright infringement, employment practices liability, or a commercial umbrella policy.
  6. Review all your safety policies to make sure they are up-to-date
