Are you in the middle of creating your big Oscar worthy film? The Oscars are right around the corner (March 4th 2018). In order to complete your big production, you want to make sure your film budget is protected. The type of protection we are referring to is weather insurance. US Weather Insurance Cost Containment Coverage can be set up quickly to protect against the increased costs above and beyond what you expected.
For example, your production budget may look like something below:
- Producer fees ($70,000)
- Development ($15,000)
- Publicity ($10,000)
- Overhead ($40,000)
- 50% of contingency ($25,000)
Depending on your production company, this budget may seem big. However, money isn’t the only thing you should consider when making a film. It’s time as well. If you have a big budget but only have a weekend to shoot the film, the pressure for everything to go right increases. The last thing you need is for bad weather to strike.
To make sure that weather does not negatively affect filming, Cost Containment coverage is the best option. Since filming can be time sensitive, US Weather Insurance takes that into consideration to create a policy that is specific to the shooting duration and the type of weather.
The steps are simple:
Contact US Weather Insurance and provide us with the following:
- Estimated total expenses during the time period you would like to be covered against severe weather.
- Date, time and location (zip code) of the time period you would like to be protected.
- Type of weather you would like to insure against (Rain Insurance, Snow Insurance or Temperature Insurance).
Once we have to above information, we can take it from there. We will then be able to give you a quote that usually ranges from 1%-5% of the amount of coverage. As good as our prices are, we will leave the Oscar nomination for your film. If you need help setting up coverage, give us a call at 888-882-5440!
