We’re celebrating National Insurance Day with 7 days of discounts

Posted by Meghan Stickney on Jun 20, 2018 9:21:21 AM

OK, yes, there does seem to be a ‘national’ celebration for almost every occasion (National Chocolate Ice Cream Day is also this month) which is why we’re giving National Insurance Day a celebratory edge by offering 7 Days of Discounts this month!

From June 21 to June 28, we’re offering:


And if you’re still not sure why you might want to celebrate National Insurance Day, here are a few of the reasons we love insurance so much:

  1. Did you know, that none of your favourite films would be produced without insurance? That’s because all film production companies are required to have insurance to gain access to a location, rent the necessary equipment and gear and secure the financing needed before the director can say “lights, camera, action!”
  2. Insurance is essential to protect any workplace environment. Most business owners are required by their landlord to have insurance to set up shop. So, whether you’re visiting your accountant or favourite clothing store or restaurant, these amazing businesses wouldn’t be able to safely operate without Workplace Insurance.
  3. Insurance is just as critical for your favourite online businesses, to protect them against hacking. From the convenience of online banking to online shopping, you don’t have to look very far to see why Cyber Insurance is worth celebrating!


We’d like to invite you to celebrate National Insurance Day with us, by taking advantage of our 7 Days of Discounts happening from June 21 to June 28 this month. Use the code “Celebrate” when you purchase any of the following and enjoy these big discounts!

Claim your discount now!

Plus, you can get insured with Front Row in just a couple of minutes online, so there’s no need to meet in person or do any paperwork. Yet another reason to celebrate!

How to choose between a DICE Policy and a Short Shoot policy*

Posted by David Hamilton on Sep 22, 2017 4:56:00 PM

A Short Shoot Policy is intended for those producers who are conducting shoots lasting 14 days or less, using rented equipment and with budgets of $250,000 or less. This makes it ideal for short film producers, student projects or anyone else who will be filming on a short term basis and requires insurance. Equipment coverage can apply to any rented film production equipment as well as rented props, sets and wardrobe up to the specified policy limits. Commercial General Liability coverage can also be purchased either together with equipment coverage or on a standalone basis. If you would like a free non-obligation quote or to purchase coverage, please visit our Short Shoot policy website here. *Currently we are only able to provide this coverage to Canadian Producers. If you require this coverage from outside of Canada please contact your local Front Row office for assistance.

The Dice Package Policy is intended to provide insurance for documentaries, corporate videos, commercials, educational films music videos and more. It is best suited for producers who are planning to produce projects other than feature films or TV series. This can provide coverage for a full year for Rented and Owned equipment as well as Props, Sets and Wardrobe, Office Contents, Vehicle Physical Damage and more. Commercial General Liability coverage can also be purchased either together with the equipment coverage or on a standalone basis. If you would like more information or to request a free non-obligation quote, please visit our DICE Policy website here. If you are a US based Producer please click here instead.

Reel West Announces Front Row Short Term Film Insurance Program

Posted by Mike Groner on Nov 14, 2014 5:22:00 PM

From Reel West Magazine Nov. 14, 2014 E-News


Over 800 producers and filmmakers have visited the site since the launch last October, says Front Row Insurance President David W. Hamilton.

The online Short Term Production Insurance program allows filmmakers to obtain quotes for short-term projects in less than five minutes, 24/7. The types of short shoots that can be covered are: short films under 30 minutes in length, commercials, music videos, documentaries, public service announcements, corporate films, teasers and more. Clients from across Canada can choose short-term equipment insurance for their rented gear, and/or short-term general liability to protect filming locations. Coverage can also include props, sets and wardrobes, as well as rented production vehicles. Policy terms are for up to 15 days and coverage is provided anywhere in Canada and the United States.

"Most of the 800 visitors have obtained a quote. They can get a quote themselves on the site in two minutes," says Hamilton. "The average time spent on the site is six minutes and 10 seconds."

52 sales in the first month is an excellent result, he adds.

Hamilton says Front Row developed he program because they saw an explosion of low budget HD productions that film in less than 15 days.

"We were getting a lot of enquires through our website after normal working hours. The best way to do this was to automate it," says Hamilton. "We did a lot of testing before launch and except for some minor tweaks it is working as planned."
