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.
