WHAT DO YOU MEAN THAT’S NOT COVERED? LESSONS LEARNED IN MANAGING RISKS AND COSTS IN YOUR PRODUCTION

Insurance may be one of the last arrangements you make in your production, but it is for certain one of the most important. Done properly, it can mean all the difference in executing a safe, smart, and profitable production.  

In this panel, we bring perspectives from production executives and risk management & insurance professionals to explore real-life production disasters – ranging from weather delays to death of cast family members to #MeToo related turnover and reputation damages – and how you can learn from these incidents and prevent them (or at least contain their consequences).  You’ll also learn how the standard coverage provisions that come with an “off the shelf” policy can be customized to better protect your production, your cast & crew, and your creative vision.
