This comprehensive cover provides insurance in the following six categories:
1. HDI Cast/Crew Insurance
Actioning a film project usually hinges on the leading actor, cameraman and director. If one of these people has to drop out because of illness, an accident or untimely demise, this leads to production delays or filming has to be interrupted or even abandoned. This can necessitate, for example, longer rental of the filming location or a longer engagement of the film crew. Such extra costs are covered by HDI Cast/Crew Insurance.
2. HDI Film Equipment Insurance
The destruction or damage of the film set or of props and scenery sets can lead to considerable film production delays or the abandonment of filming. Often damage to or the loss of recording equipment can have equally serious consequences. The cost risks associated with such scenarios are covered by HDI Film Equipment Insurance. If filming has to be abandoned, payments that still have to be made in accordance with contractual agreements are also covered.
3. HDI Image and Sound Recording Insurance
Film recordings can be damaged or get lost while they are being produced, stored, processed or in transit. The recovery or recreation of recordings costs money. If the recordings are irretrievably lost, the entire film project can fail. HDI Image and Sound Recording Insurance reimburse these recovery/repair costs and cover any previous as well as contractually agreed expenditure, if a film project has to be abandoned.
4. HDI Filmmaking Equipment Insurance
This insurance solution covers damage to recording equipment. Owned, borrowed or rented items, including accessories, are insured against most risks that could arise from the usage, transportation or storage of such equipment.
5. HDI Film Props Insurance
Props can be damaged or get lost during filming or while being transported to and from the film location. HDI Film Props Insurance reimburses the costs of their repair or replacement plus any clearance costs that might be incurred. It does not matter whether these props are owned, borrowed or rented. All sources of risk, with a few exceptions, are covered. On request insurance cover can be extended to living animals, jewellery, plants, structures etc. that are needed for filming.
6. HDI Film Production Cash Resources Insurance
Film production cash resources include means of payment like cash, cheques, EC and credit cards and their function is to enable payments to be made during filming, e.g. to extras. HDI Film Production Cash Resources Insurance insures these payment resources against theft in particular whilst being transported or in safe custody for the entire film production period.
