Our policy
Our wide ranging film production package policy protects the property associated with these productions such as videotape, animation artwork, office contents, props, sets and wardrobe. However, in addition we insure extra expenses arising from illness or injury to cast members, loss of money, theft, liability and errors and omissions. In short our film productions insurance is wide ranging and will protect the entirety of the production from start to finish.
