The Film Producer's Day

Managing Risk at Every Turn

Working in a busy and specialist environment, your business is exposed to a unique range of risks. It’s important to work with a specialist broker who really understands you and can support you with professional advice as you plan, create, edit and roll out your work.

06.00 Set off for the airport for location shoot. Question: does your insurance cover international location shoots? Both the travel element and your liabilities?

07.00 Remember you’re travelling with hired kit. Question: does your policy cover hired-in equipment – and any loss of continuing hire charges?

11.00 Arrive at location. Question: have you done a camera and stock test? Without it your insurance may be invalidated…

14.00 Shoot is delayed for 2 hours by storms – this’ll cost you an extra day. Question: did you consider adverse weather contingency cover?

16.00 The extras arrive. Question: does your Employers Liability policy cover non-UK residents?

17.00 Equipment shorts due to power surge – some material in the can is lost. Question: do you have Negative, Film and Videotape cover in place?

18.00 The extras’ day wages have gone astray. Question: do you have cover for cash in hand?

It’s a wrap! But when the red carpet’s rolled out for the premiere… do you have Errors and Omissions insurance in case someone takes offence at your work?

Talk to us about our exclusive policy Media Portfolio, which can cover all your risks under a single policy. Premiums start from £1,000.

“These guys are the only insurance people I will tolerate speaking to these days, as they are actual humans (with both a brain and a heart!) and offer very good packages too - they answer calls and emails promptly and when I had an issue recently with my bank were very helpful to get it fixed.”

Advice You Can Trust

…from an expert who understands you

Tech-based business is 24/7, global and borderless, exposing you to new risks and liabilities - often in unfamiliar places. As the law struggles to keep pace with technology, insurance can provide a real safety net if you fall foul of changing legislation.

  • Specialist insurance for media and digital businesses
  • Independent professional advice
  • Relationship-based service: right beside you when you make a claim
  • “Can do” culture
  • Seamless insurance across UK and US

Are we right for each other?

What sets us apart is the advice we offer: we really know our stuff. We listen, we analyse, we advise you on how to eliminate or mitigate your risk, and how to protect yourself against what remains. We may not be the cheapest option – so if an off-the-shelf policy and call centre queues work for you, be our guest. But if you need some advice on identifying your risk areas, how to structure your insurance most efficiently and effectively, and how to adapt it to the changing dynamics of your work or life – with hand-holding and close attention to detail - you’ve come to the right place. Welcome to the family!
