Short-Term Production Insurance for Filmmakers (US)

A Short Shoot Policy is intended for those producers who are conducting shoots lasting 60 days or less, using rented equipment and with budgets of $1,000,000 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.

Please contact us if you have a higher budget.

A short-term film insurance package can satisfy insurance requirements from film schools, rental houses, permit offices, prop houses, and/or studio location rental space.

HOW MUCH DOES SHORT-TERM PRODUCTION INSURANCE COST? Pricing starts at around $1,000. Please note that we do not offer standalone rented equipment coverage.
