i would suggest that you call an insurance company. they have different deals depending upon what you need the insurance for and the value of what you are insuring. make some calls. learn something. nicole wrote: > where can i get cheao insurance for my film, this is a completely no budget movie, so can anyone help me out, > thanks > Nicole

There is a company in LA called Filmmaker's Resource. Their phone number is (323) 822-2060, and they tend to have one of the best deals for short film production (one day to two weeks of insurance). If you want to have a longer production, like a feature, you should get the insurance for an entire year, since it will end up saving you money, even if it's for a few weeks. Try USI Ent. at (818) 704-1000, or another company called Acord. I'm not sure if Acord represents USI, or if USI is its own entity, but I know they've covered a number of shoots that have rented from me. Try LA411.com for insurance company listings. Look into how much insurance you'll need. There are general policies geared toward filmmakers, but your limit of equipment loss can vary, and you have to decide if you need to have vehical coverage, in the event that you rent a grip or camera truck from the rental house. Find out how much insurance you'll need to cover by calling the rental houses and see how much they require (I require $500,000 in Equipment coverage, while some may require $250,000 for less expensive cameras). Good luck!
