Film set insurance

Even a low-budget film can cost hundreds of thousands of pounds to produce. With so much investment on the line, even the slightest delay, incident or accident can result in huge losses for both companies and individuals. Insurance for production companies is an absolute essential and is usually factored into the overall budget not just for individual productions, but for general coverage.

At Park Insurance, we have over 30 years’ experience in providing specialist insurance for production companies, as well as film set insurance for individual shoots, and media production insurance that covers almost any eventuality. Whether you’re shooting a full-length feature or a 30-second advert, working in a closed set or on location, we can help.

Specialist cover at the right price

If you’re in charge of a film budget then you have to account for every single penny, which is why getting the right type of film production insurance is crucial. Why pay for something you don’t need? And can you really afford to cut corners when it comes to production insurance? At Park Insurance, we work with you to make sure your insurance cover is right for you, your business, and your budget. So we provide specialist cover that’s tailor-made for:

  • Advertising Agencies & Production Companies
  • Feature Film & TV Production Companies
  • Animators
  • Music Video Production
  • Camera Men
  • Independent Producers
  • From bad weather to wardrobe malfunctions

Anything can derail a filming schedule. From bad weather to equipment (and the occasional actor) breaking down, damage to stock or an accident on set, getting that film in the can is a challenge from the moment the script has been written. So at Park, we use our experience as preferred brokers, as well as our connection to the film industry, to deliver insurance for production companies that won’t leave you over-budget and under-protected. We can put together a package of insurance that includes:

Adverse weather

A sudden change in the weather can ruin a shoot, whether it’s a one-day fashion photoshoot or two weeks of location filming for a multi-million-pound feature. It can be difficult to get protection against adverse weather, but at Park Insurance we use our contacts with the UK’s top insurance providers to get you the cover you need.

Combined Liability

From personal to public liability insurance cover, we can provide you with both short and long-term options for one-off events or for continuous cover.

Specialist Film Producer’s Indemnity

As a producer, the buck stops with you, and the failure of a project can mean your investment turns into a financial liability. Our specialist Film Producer’s Indemnity helps protect you against the financial hardships and get you back into the black.

Motor Props, Set and Wardrobe

For any production company, investing in everything from prop jewellery to full period wardrobes for a costume drama represents a significant investment. Protect that investment with motor props, set and wardrobe cover.

Personal accident

Any workplace has the potential to be hazardous, but a film set can be especially risky. From trips, slips and falls to serious injury during a stunt or car chase, personal accidents can end up costing your production company thousands in compensation claims. Protect yourself and your business with full personal accident cover that includes legal fees.

Travel insurance

If you’re filming on location and you need to travel abroad, Park Insurance can arrange specialist travel insurance for film production companies that protects you, your vehicles, and your equipment. Ensure your cameras, lighting and sound equipment are fully insured in transit, and let us arrange travel insurance that also provides medical cover for your production crew and cast.

Negative film and videotape

Once the rushes are done, the job isn’t over. They still need to be edited and finished in post-production. If anything happens to the negative film, videotape, or digital files then it can mean a loss that runs into thousands as you have to arrange second shoots to replace the lost content. Protect yourself financially from the cost of losing those crucial rushes with specialist insurance from Park.

We also provide cover for:

  • On-set Cash losses
  • Errors and Omissions
  • Production Campaign costs
  • Employer’s liability insurance
  • Specialist vehicle insurance
