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.
