Our advisory examines how film production insurance can help producers and artists mitigate the evolving risks of foreign shoots.
Explosions and dramatic stunts in exotic locales keep movie audiences on the edge of their seats, but behind the scenes, filmmakers must strive to keep the actors, stunt performers and crew safe while providing only the illusion of danger on screen. The scenes may be fictional, but the risks remain all too real. Pyrotechnics can cause severe injuries and death; car chases and other auto scenes too often lead to injuries and significant losses; even the industrial nature of the equipment on a set presents risks that may be overlooked. All of these exposures are heightened when production takes place in another country with differing employment and insurance laws.
