Insurance for Studios
Providing the cover that your Studio truly requires.
Finding the right cover for your Studio should involve more than just insuring the bricks and mortar. The type of studio you are, and how you operate, may also influence the insurance cover that you need. Our job at Performance is to understand these nuances, ensuring that you have the cover you require, whilst not paying for “frills” that you don’t need.
Recording studios may hold tapes, hard drives and other media containing content on-site that, if damaged or stolen, would mean that more studio time is required to complete the soundtrack - at your cost.
Our range of multimedia covers are designed to protect you (and your relationship with your client) by ensuring that you are back on track as quickly as possible.
Film or TV studios may have equipment, sets and props on site, or they may just hire out a staging facility, green screens, or rehearsal space for others to use.
With our experience of insuring studios across a host of disciplines, we can put together a unique proposition that suits your particular business down to the ground.
We can advise on; engineering inspection cover, for any pulley systems and hoists you may use to move items around; cover for your liability, so others can use your site; and protection against your loss of income, should the worst happen.
Sometimes it’s the little extras that make life easier – we know that insurers recommend carrying out insurance checks for the people who are using your space and that some studios are better at this than others. We can take this pain away, and are happy to perform these for our policyholders, free of charge - it's all part of our service! But don't just take our word on it.

Meet the team
“Andrew Leen and his team at Performance took a chance on our short film fund in its very first years. Taking a genuine interest in not just the insurance logistics of each shoot but also the creative thinking behind the stories, meant that they've built relationships with filmmakers from across London at the crucial, formative stage. This is, I believe, unique amongst film production insurance services and much needed in such a competitive market. I have no hesitation in recommending Performance for both their expertise and sense of humour when it comes to insuring and claiming and have used them on my own feature film, Island and ongoing company insurance for Tailormade Productions. Long may our collaborations continue!”
Southern Exposure Film Fund [the Lambeth-Southwark-Film London film fund]
“We've been working with Performance Media Insurance since 2008 when they first put together a special package for our London Calling short film funds, which produce over around 20 short films every year. As both insurers for new and emerging filmmakers and long-term partners in this area of work, Performance's commitment to up and coming talent is clear and very much valued. And from a business point of view, I would put their longevity and success down to maintaining the personal touch.”
Producer - Short Film Schemes
“ I've been insured with Performance for 7 years and have found them to be a helpful and flexible insurance provider. They were able to find solutions to insurance issues I was having on two US commercials shoots and were extremely helpful when I needed to make a claim following a burglary at our offices.
I would recommend them without hesitation.”
