Producers' Indemnity Insurance

Get a Quote

Producers Indemnity, also known as Production Cover, will protect your production budget from losses due to the injury, illness or death of cast members, or for the delay or abandonment of a shoot due to circumstances beyond your control.

What is covered by Producers Indemnity insurance?

Producers Indemnity is designed to protect the budget of your production, should you need alternative shooting dates or to abandon the project entirely. For example, if a location you will be shooting at is destroyed in the days leading up to a shoot, causing you delays and additional expense in finding alternative locations, your production company is covered. Or alternatively, if a lead actor in the production is taken ill, and the production dates need to be pushed back, you will be covered.

In the event of a claim, the policy will pay out for either the additional expenditure incurred to complete the production or, in the case of abandonment, you will be compensated for the expenditure already incurred.

Why Choose Performance for Producers Indemnity Insurance?

We have a dedicated team of media insurance professionals ready to respond quickly when you need support.

From our in-depth experience, we are aware of the vast spectrum of dangers that exist in this business, as well as the sheer diversity of people who work in it. That’s why, whether you’re a well-established production company, a freelancer, or a student just starting out, we take a personal approach to finding you the right cover.

We offer bespoke cover for most sectors within the television, film and media industries, with annual and short-period options available.

To provide an annual quotation, we would need to know your estimated annual budgeted production costs together with the maximum budget per individual production. If you are looking for a short-term quotation, we would just need the budget for the production you are looking to cover.

Annual

Not every production takes months to make – but even when projects are short-term, they still need protecting. That’s why we offer cover on terms of 90 days or less.
