Woodland Hills, Ca (PRWEB) July 03, 2012
The Film and Movie industry, unlike so many others, has a continuing need for insurance. MovieInsure.com helps film producers obtain film insurance cheap. Often the budgets for film productions are tight, especially for the “indie” producer. However, cutting corners on the insurance is discouraged. Nevertheless, the rates offered by MovieInsure.com are outstanding – Brilliant Insurance Services has access to 4 national carriers, resulting in the best choice in rates and coverage for the customer.
MovieInsure.com provides film insurance in California, as well as thirteen other states, and caters to the independent filmmaker. “Most of the policies we sell are short term…” says David Karubian, CEO of Brilliant Insurance Services, “…eventually as producers gain experience they see the value in obtaining the yearly plans to save money”. The following is a list of the states in which we currently transact in no particular order: California, New York, Florida, Hawaii, Arizona, Nevada, Texas, District of Colombia (DC), Georgia, Illinois, North Carolina, New Jersey, Ohio, and Utah.
There are four basic sections to the production policy, including Workers’ compensation, Hired/Non-owned autos, rented/borrowed equipment, and general liability. The “general liability” is required to get filming permits. Some producers own their own equipment. Workers compensation is absolutely required on SAG Union “shoots”.
Most of the film insurance in Los Angeles transacted by Brilliant Insurance Services is due to the proximity of the office to Hollywood (and the “valley” where North Hollywood and Studio City are located). “We have great relationships with several of the stages and indoor facilities where sets and green screens are used” says David.
Additionally, MovieInsure.com (Brilliant Insurance Services) is a preferred vendor for FilmL.A., Inc. FilmL.A., Inc. is the Los Angeles City Film Permit office for Los Angeles and it’s assigned territories. The reference to Brilliant Insurance Services (MovieInsure.com) can be found on FilmL.A.’s website in the insurance section, found under the forms section, in the area entitled “For Filmmakers”.
