Getting productions insured is one of those necessary things that can be unnecessarily frustrating.
The bad news is that not many event insurers know that immersive experiences exist, let alone how to classify them. We know that is going to change in time, but in the meanwhile a lot of producers find them selves talking to people who just don't understand.
The good news is that every time someone successfully ensures an event, we are all one step closer to a world where getting insurance for an immersive or experiential work is no different from getting insurance for any other live event.
To that end, we are spearheading a crowd sourcing effort on the community’s experiences with getting insurance. Our hope is to take the hard earned lessons of trailblazing producers and turn it into a knowledge base which the community may access.
This survey is the first step in that process. You’ll find some of the questions quite detailed, because we’re looking for a realistic, not idealized, vision of what’s going on out there. We are asking producers to share their insight into the insurance process, so that those who follow may benefit from their wisdom.
