Film Insurance

Delays in filming schedules are probably the single most common and costly cause of claims made by producers. Each day’s delay in a typical £2 million budget film can easily cost £30,000 – £40,000 – an exposure that remains constant throughout the shoot, for 26 weeks or more.

A Chesterfield Film and Television Production package covers events that can cause delays to filming. We can tailor a policy to specific needs, making additions or amendments as necessary.
