Shooting A Commercial In L.A…? You need Insurance

Shooting A Commercial In L.A…? You need 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 insurance 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.

The Risks of Drone Ownership

More and more businesses are purchasing and using drones for a number of reasons.  Drones have been used in the entertainment business for a number of years.  Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV’s), affectionately referred to as “Drones”, are revolutionizing the industry as we know it. Drone insurance is a vital component in protecting the “Owner/operator” of the aircraft. Drones are a quickly evolving technology, and the implications and regulations for owning one may change in the near future. Current sales of drones are running about 200,000 for 2015.

Liability Issues with Drones

Here are a few issues that have not yet been worked out through the courts:

  1. Who owns the airspace?
  2. What constitutes an invasion of personal space?
  3. What are my privacy rights?
  4. Who is liable for damage?

Drone Insurance Concern

Most business insurance excludes liability related to an aircraft of any kind. Drone owners should talk to their insurance agent to see if they have coverage and, if not; consider what coverage options might be available. We have the ability to write drone insurance, call us today.

We are proud to offer specialized coverage for production and event insurance of all types.
