Third party property filming
Third Party Property Damage (TPPD)

Third Party Property Damage coverage provides for the damage or destruction of property of others (including loss of use of the property) while the property is in the care, custody or control of the production company and is used or is to be used in an insured production. This is the most ideal coverage to insure a film location.

Third Party Property Damage may also be extended for damage to buildings and contents rented as living quarters for cast & crew during production.

Coverage does not apply to: liability for destruction of property caused by operation of any motor vehicle, aircraft or watercraft, including damage to the foregoing; liability for damage to any property rented or leased which may be covered under props, sets or wardrobe, or miscellaneous equipment coverage (except, that loss of use of any such equipment is covered), will fall under those respective coverages instead.

This type of exposure is not covered under a Comprehensive Liability policy. Property Damage coverage written as part of the Commercial General Liability Policy excludes damage to any property in the production company’s care, custody or control.


Extra Expense reimburses the production company for any extra expense necessary to complete principal photography of the insured production due to loss of, damage to or destruction of property  or facilities (props, sets, wardrobe or equipment) used in connection with the production.

Coverage can also be extended on some policies for delays due to civil authority, mechanical breakdown of camera equipment, disruption of outside power and non-industry strike.
