Spotlite Claims launches "Lunch and Learn"

In February 2015 we held the first of a series of Spotlite Claims:Lunch & Learn” sessions at our offices covering entertainment industry related topics.  Primarily aimed at staff but with room for a small number of interested clients, these free- to- client sessions will aim to cover all aspects of both film and contingency business during the course of this year. The sessions, led by industry experts, are designed to provide our staff and clients with in-depth specialist knowledge that will furnish them with additional expertise when adjusting claims.

 

February Lunch & Learn – “Production Accounting, Lifting the Lid”

Our first guest speaker was Rachel Plose, Financial Controller at Florence Film Ltd who began her career in 1996 at the BBC before moving into Film.  She has worked on independent films such as “The Iron Lady” and many studio films including “Hot Fuzz” and more recently the Fox movie “Far From The Madding Crowd”.  Rachel gave a very useful and informative talk and Q & A on all aspects of production accounting. She updated us with details of the latest software packages currently available to studio and independent productions. We looked at what these packages can deliver in terms of reporting, to help us make our own claims audit process slicker and faster.

Having worked in television and on independent and studio films, Rachel was ideally qualified to inform us about the similarities and differences in accounting practices across all media and to help us refine our processes, drawing on best practice in both genres. She also walked us through the different crew and cast contracts and the minefield of entitlement to overtime and 6th/7th day payments across various departments. 

 

April Lunch & Learn – “The Magic Art of Film Finance, Insurance and Bonding”

Our April speaker (date and details to be confirmed) has considerable experience as a producer and financier of films.  This session will also be held at our offices, just outside Watford.   Our next speaker will be providing us with an insight into how films are financed/ insured and bonded. This will be an inter-active and entertaining session with a light-hearted look at an example of an Insurers’ “worst nightmare” script. We will be breaking this down to look at the insurance issues and how these can be dealt with.  

Why not make this an opportunity to visit us at our offices and have lunch, with an educational bonus thrown in! If you are interested in attending, please e-mail info@spotliteclaims.com

Due to space, numbers will be limited to 2 persons per company and allocated on a first come basis. However, don’t be disappointed if you are unable to come to this next session. There will be more, stimulating sessions throughout the year with planned speakers from the worlds of ticketing, theatre and event management. Please follow us to receive updates on all of these Spotlite Claims: “Lunch & Learn” sessions. Finally, if you attend a session, please do provide us with your feedback or ideas for other topics, so we can make sure that we maximise the benefit for everyone.

We hope to see you soon at one of this year's Lunch and Learn Sessions...
