Film Production Stunt Insurance



Many productions make use of stunts during filming.


Please note: a short term application is also required in order to receive a quote.

Most traditional film insurance packages will not cover these stunts as they are considered too unpredictable. We are now happy to provide special coverage for some of these situations through our Stunt Insurance Package.


Directors can now get coverage for a variety of activities. These include stunts, aerial scenes, falls, fight scenes, recreational vehicles, water scenes, weapons, precision driving, and animals. These are all subject to underwriting approval.   An application is REQUIRED for this coverage.
