Are You Sure Your Production Is Covered?

The Wild Wild World Of Entertainment Insurance

When you think about entertainment insurance there are a number of things you must consider. But the single most important thing to consider is the skill and experience of the agent.  We have been helping the entertainment industry manage risk for many years, and we have found three things that will help you understand your risk.

Why work with an independent agent?

When you purchase insurance through an independent California agent you are working with a licensed professional who specializes in the products and services you need. Independent agents are local business owners who employ your neighbors to serve your needs.

  • We represent many different markets, giving you more options.
  • MovieInsure is there to handle your claims, and we will help you through the claims process.
  • We are experienced. Our staff completes regular training on all the insurance products you need.
  • You want a business that is locally owned.

Proven ways to save on your entertainment insurance

  • Narrow production periods. Rather than 3 weekends try to manage in six consecutive days.
  • Paint a picture that describes what you do and how well you do it. You have to sell the underwriter on what is different about your operation and how the insurance company needs to insure your risk, because you are above average.
  • We will market your account with many different insurers, giving you the best combination of price and coverage.

Entertainment claims

Entertainment firms have claims, and we understand that you need the right kind of insurance to cover your losses. Here are few of the claims we see.

  • A crew member drops a $15,000 camera in the water.
  • Someone steals a key prop (like a custom auto) used in production.
  • A production set guest trips and falls on cables and sues the production company for medical bills.

We are ready to help you find the right combination of price, coverage, and services.

The Value of Entertainment Insurance

No one likes to think about having an insurance claim, but accidents can and do happen. That is why you buy insurance in the first place. Every so often, we like to share examples of the claims that are common in the entertainment industry.

  • A production company was filming a commercial in Los Angeles CA, and the company had $30,000 of equipment stored in a truck. While the production was stopped for lunch, a car hit the truck and most of the equipment was damaged. The driver of the vehicle had no insurance. Fortunately, the production company had property insurance on their equipment and the claim was covered minus the deductible.
  • An event planner scheduled a concert and had presold $100,000 worth of tickets. Three days prior to the event, the venue had a fire. The event planner had Event Cancelation Insurance and had the resources to settle all claims and reschedule the event for a later date.
  • A post production company was hired to produce 10,000 CD’s for a motivational speaker. The CD’s were to be ready for sale prior to a big event the speaker had scheduled. Due to production issues, the firm missed the release time and the speaker sued the firm for lost revenue.

How To Insure Animals

Animals have been used in movie-making, advertising, documentaries, print, and various production functions since the early days of the industry.  The American Humane Association has worked for many years to protect animals in films. This confirms how important animals are in movies, TV, documentaries and other productions.

Animal Mortality insurance will pay an agreed value for your animal actors if it dies from any accidental or natural cause. This coverage protects you against loss as a result of a variety of perils, including fire, lightning, windstorm, hail, theft, collision, upset while in transit, accidental shooting, and drowning.  Plus, it pays the agreed value of the animal actor if death was caused by one of the perils listed on the policy.

How it Works…it is simple

We get the resumes on the animal actors and their wranglers.  We can then write Animal Mortality coverage (life insurance) on the animals for a predetermined value.
