8 WAYS TO SAVE MONEY WHEN INSURING STUNTS & SPFX

Stunts on film sets

  • Hire an experienced coordinator with a lengthy résumé. This is the most important step you can take to reduce your insurance costs.
  • Close the set to public and guests.
  • Use stunt actors, instead of your "real" actors.
  • Provide a diagram showing where the equipment and crew will be located relative to the action. Place equipment and crew a safe distances from the action.
  • Use long lenses on camera, sandbags, and Lexon shields if possible to protect the filming equipment.
  • Provide a full description of stunt & SPFX including script pages.
  • Describe safety measures on set: fire extinguishers, sand, fireman/policeman, first aid, etc.
  • Underwriters charge when they are anxious or uncomfortable when reviewing a stunt or SPFX. Give the underwriter enough information to make them comfortable and you will minimize the premium charges for your stunts & special effects.
