Short period insurance is not just for short films.


Feature films, music videos, kit tests, corporate videos, and commercials are just some of the other projects that may also need insurance for a short period of time.

Our online system provides instant estimates as you choose your cover, so you can see at a glance what the likely cost is going to be.

Furthermore, our cover is accepted by all major hire companies, and is simple and easy for you to arrange – even outside of normal working hours!

If you are planning a production which is scheduled for 90 days or less, Performance can provide you with cover at a time that is convenient for you.
