Other Insurances

Depending on the nature of the production, there may be other specialist insurance required, e.g:

  • Marine
  • Aviation
  • Livestock
  • Political risks
  • Kidnap and ransom
  • Foreign local insurances
  • Weather insurance
  • Presenter’s / Actor’s disgrace
  • Essential element – refers to a person who is essential to the production. This is a policy endorsement added to cast coverage wording. A claim is made under the cast coverage if death or injury or sickness for a specified time of an essential element during pre-production or principal photography prevents the completion and delivery required by the distributors and makes it necessary to abandon the production. A separate charge generally applies.
