Insurance Costs

I was shocked. Literally.

For an upcoming MathTacular4 shoot day I needed to get insurance that would name Bandimere Speedway "Additionally Insured" for a million bucks. This isn't a big deal if you already have insurance coverage from a company. However, I only had personal insurance (typically stuff like house and car) which wouldn't work for business equipment and other locations. So I had to call up my insurance guy.

After doing some research (he doesn't have many filmmakers among his clientele) it turns out that I can get a year's worth of insurance (the million in liability and a little bit for my stuff) for only $301. What's more, $300 is the minimum price of business insurance, so I'm maximizing my return. How cool is that?

If you don't know, it's pretty cool.

So how is the rest of MathTacular filming going? Today was quite successful because we were done by lunch (a late lunch, but lunch). This means we have only two more activities to shoot before next week when we go back into MathTacular4.

There's also some really cool news about that coming up, but I'll save that for a more opportune time.

You'll just have to check back to find out.
