La Playa: Insurance with Intelligence®

Children’s Media

Animation | Production | Post Production | Promotion & Distribution | Gaming | Interactive Media | Publishing | Merchandising

Specialist insurance advice is essential when making children's TV, cartoons, film and online content.​​

What if...

  • You're accused of plagiarism?
  • A child actor is injured during a shoot?
  • A key actor cancels?
  • Rushes get lost or corrupted after a computer crash?
  • Equipment, merchandise or cash are stolen or damaged?

Working in Children’s Media, you need specialist advice on which insurance covers you need - depending on the nature and scope of your work, and on your contracts. Your insurance needs will differ across developing, producing and distributing content - for television, radio, film, animation, games, interactive media, publishing, licensing, merchandising and live performance. And major distribution channels (BBC, Channel 4, Discover, Nickelodeon) may require you have Public Liability, Employers’ Liability amd Professional Indemnity/Errors & Omissions covers in place.

“Where there’s a contract, there’s liability. Where there’s liability, there’s an insurance need”

Then there's your intellectual property: in creating content for kids, new ideas are the Holy Grail. Childsplay, right? Charismatic characters, strong format, high production values, commissioning guidelines, regulation framework, competing with global imports – without looking like anything that’s gone before. Anywhere. Ever.

Which is why Intellectual Property Insurance is a MUST. But copyright infringement is just ONE of the key risk exposures your organisation faces....

3 key types of Insurance:

1. Commercial Producers’ Indemnity: for risks in actually creating your content (shooting etc) This is a package policy that covers your filming, liabilities, reshoot costs (incurred by interruption, cancellation, abandonment or re-scheduling of a production), Employers’ Liability, Public Liability, Property, Money, Cast and Crew, Loss of Media.

2. Commercial Producers’ Professional Indemnity: for financial loss arising from mistakes

3. Film Errors & Omissions: for risks associated with distribution contracts

Please note: Equipment is insured as part of a wider business insurance package, and not on a standalone basis.
