"WMM was always quick to make whatever adjustments where needed to make sure my production went smoothly."
Patrick Coleman Duncan
“I can't stress enough the peace of mind WMM's production management gave me. I have witnessed on set injuries and property damage handled poorly by inexperienced filmmakers. There is no way someone should shoot a film without support from WMM ."
"We were in a difficult place with a shoot about to be cancelled.
My DP told me about We Make Movies - and I called Eric, desperate and depressed. Within a few minutes, Eric not only cheered me up - He literally saved my life - and saved the shoot.
I can't say enough about how great a help Eric and We Make Movies was! Without them, I would have had a really angry client and a cancelled shoot. I am so thankful for these guys - and happy they are there to help out the little guy in situations like this.
If you're in trouble - Eric and his team are the people to call..."
"We Make Movies has been an asset to our production company. They provided expert advice when we lost footage due to a damaged data card. Because of the coverage we had through WMM, we were able to reshoot the lost footage and complete our film. They saved us thousands of dollars! We will always use the services provided by We Make Movies for future productions."
Terms and Conditions:
To be clear, we do not sell insurance, we cannot and will NOT sell individual certificates of insurance. We are a fully insured production company that handles the tedious aspects of production for you. Here’s how it works:
Think of We Make Movies as your film studio. Studios typically provide insurance, legal protection, process payroll, secure permits, handle union and cast/crew contract paperwork, interface with vendors, and generally provide a structure for the production of your project.
One advantage to working with us instead of a traditional studio is that we will NOT claim or take any ownership rights to your Intellectual Property/creative/story of your project. We will not seek any additional compensation or back-end on your project if it’s sold or returns a profit. We outline this in our production agreement which we sign before beginning work.
You’re welcome to bring on additional production companies/producers to handle any and all creative production, but in the case of the physical production of the project, insurance and payroll WMM must be the sole production working with those elements of your project.
For your paid cast and crew, we can handle the onboarding and processing of those workers for you via Wrapbook (the most competitively priced payroll platform we’ve found!). Please note, we can only provide workers comp for interns who you tell us are receiving less than $600 total in stipends (IRS reporting threshold) otherwise they must be paid via payroll to be covered with WC.
If you're using our payroll services, the initial quote will not include those final costs since we’ll need to collect the rates and days worked for your cast & crew in order to give you a total. The total cost of payroll is broken down like this:
Cast/Crew Member Salaries + Payroll Taxes + Wrapbook’s 19% Fee + WMM 3% Processing Fee= Total Payroll Cost [We assure you these rates are industry standard.]
All injuries must be reported within 24 hours of the incident occurring and all known damages within 48 hours of the incident occurring.
If you’re renting gear, equipment, locations or if you’re applying for permits, those transactions must be processed and paid for by us (either by credit card or ACH.) You’ll find rental houses will not rent to you if the name of the entity or person paying for it does not match the name on the insurance certificate. We add a processing fee of 3%
We have partnerships with trusted vendors who can save you thousands of dollars on your equipment rentals -- ask us for more info!
Narrative feature films cannot be covered under our blanket policy, however, we are able to negotiate an affordable separate policy for you.
We Make Movies needs to be listed on all call sheets and credited as Associate Producers on the film.
