Mooneys has been involved in the risk management of Film, Television Commercial, and Television Series Production for over 30 years, and we are recognised as one of the leading film insurance brokers in the region.
Whether you’re shooting a Feature Film, Television Series, TVC, or a music video, Mooneys will provide solutions to your risk management issues.
Our involvement with the Screen Producers Association of Australia (SPAA) has resulted in the development of a member discount scheme being available as part of our SPAA Members Program.
We prefer to become involved early in the pre-production process which results in risks being identified and addressed in the earliest stages of the production.
If a claim does occur we are there to represent your rights, and ensure that you receive the maximum compensation payable, in the shortest time possible. We also understand that when something goes wrong action needs to be taken immediately to ensure that production recommences as soon as possible. That is why we are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
Mooneys has had a Film and Television Public Liability Facility in place for over 15 years, which has been tailored to suit the particular requirements of the industry, and we are constantly looking at ways to increase the protection provided by the products on offer in the market.
