FILM & VIDEO PRODUCTION INSURANCE
As an Independent Producer you have many special needs that are unique to your profession. The field of movie production is like no other and for that reason you must have an insurance agent that understands your needs and the problems that you face every day.
In today’s competitive marketplace it is not enough to just buy insurance from your neighborhood insurance agent. Frankly, they just doesn’t have the knowledge nor expertise to obtain the kind of coverage you need to keep disaster from completely ruining a production.
Your neighborhood agent doesn’t know about the necessity of having Certificates of Insurance available in a moment’s notice (often within minutes)! They usually aren’t aware of the special types of risk you are exposed to, such as: Cast illness, faulty stock, weather delays and a host of other problems which can cost days worth of shooting and thousands of dollars.
It is for this reason that Hudson & Muma made a choice, decades ago, to specialize in writing this type of business. In those years we have learned what it takes to cover even the most unusual situations involving film and video production, and we’ve built a service staff that understands the ins and outs of this unique endeavor.
Perhaps this expertise and qualification is enough, but we also have something else: We enjoy working with producers and production staffs. It is an exciting business and we like being a part of it! Let’s face it, that’s why you make films, if you didn’t enjoy it you wouldn’t have chosen such a difficult profession.
Everyone has a tendency to choose working with people who are professional and enjoy what they do, and producers are no different. After all, people who enjoy what they do are usually the best at it.
When you choose Hudson & Muma as your insurance agent you are making a choice for expertise and professionalism, and a group of people who like their work.
In the scheme of things insurance just doesn’t seem all that important. You have other things to worry about: shooting schedules, rewrites, equipment rentals, catering, sets and wardrobes, getting the talent to show up on time and dozens of other elements of a good shoot. You don’t have the time to worry about whether or not you have the right insurance coverage in place. That’s why we’re here: we do the worrying for you so that you can concentrate on getting the best possible production.
Liability & Property
Because more and more people are becoming “liability conscious” they are insisting that producers filming on their property or in their town must obtain liability coverage and provide them with a certificate of insurance prior to the shoot.
Most independent producers believe that liability insurance is expensive and hard to obtain. This simply isn’t true. Hudson & Muma has designed, in cooperation with high-caliber insurance companies, a liability package insurance program with all the coverage you need at an affordable price.
We have programs for the basic independent producer/videographer, for D.I.C.E. Productions (Documentary, Industrial, Commercial and Educational) and for the full feature producers.
