IMS PROFESSIONAL INSURANCE
FILM AND MEDIA INSURANCE
Since 2005, IMS Film Insurance has insured over 10,000 productions in the UK. As a specialist insurance broker it offers leading-edge of innovative insurance solutions for the film, entertainment and multimedia industries.
With the emergence of the digital era, media has become easier and less expensive to produce, says Turul Brown, IMS managing director. As a result, production budgets and equipment values have gone down, and in turn insurance premiums have been driven down to record lows.
“The media industry has never been so fast-paced. Producers and agencies are more time poor than ever and always working to a deadline,” says Brown. “As a broker, we have to meet their expectations with swift turnaround times coupled with high-quality professional advice. The challenge for the industry is that agencies and filmmakers are under increasing pressure to make original, engaging content, and consequently as their broker we have to make sure that their ideas and briefs are insurable.”
