While most Film Production insurance policies cover on-set injury and damage, depending on your shoot, specialised policies can usually be added on. For example, an insurance policy for a feature film shot underwater would be very different from one for a commercial shot on a used car lot.

Additional risks that can be included in a production insurance policy include:

  • Errors and Omissions
  • Personal Accident insurance
  • Terrorism
  • Kidnap and ransom
  • Adverse weather
  • Death and disgrace
  • Non-appearance, cancellation and abandonment
  • Cyber risks insurance
