Brazilian production insurance is a question that must be addressed when flying your international crew to shoot in Brazil. It is crucial that your project is covered from potential liabilities that your crew might be exposed to while shooting there.
International production companies may carry their own production insurance that covers their activity in their countries of origin, but their coverage may not extend to potential liabilities on foreign soil. Also, due to the fact that international production companies coming to shoot in Brazil need to partner with a local production company, there's a portion of the liability that falls on the shoulders of the local hired production company. Thus, the local production company must take out insurance to cover production activities when working in partnership with a foreign production company.
In Brazil, production insurance is issued on a project-to-project basis, not yearly as it is the case in some countries such as the US. BPS, as your local partner in Brazil, will always insure your production in Brazil through reputable international insurance companies such as HDI and Allianz.
