Oklahoma is home to the Great Plains and the U.S. Interior Highlands. The state is supplied with vibrant cities and rural towns that have their own unique qualities. Combined with locations like the Alabaster Cave, the Wichita Mountain Wildlife Refuge, and the Black Mesa, Oklahoma is a perfect place for a shoot.

Film Insurance Requirements in the State of

The State of Oklahoma does not require film productions to carry insurance. However, films utilizing the Oklahoma Film Enhancement Rebate Program administered by OF+MO must meet specific insurance requirements as mandated by the guidelines of the program without exception. Film productions are strongly advised to have insurance policies in place to ensure the safety of cast, crew and locations while filming in Oklahoma – and many of these parties will prohibit filming and/or their involvement with the production without a policy in place.

We recommend the following: 

Certificate(s) of Insurance (COI) as evidence of General Liability coverage in the amount not less than $1,000,000 for each occurrence.

A separate additional insured endorsement for the COI with the following wording: “the State of Oklahoma, including its officers, agents and employees is named as additional insured, with respect to liability arising out of the operations related to filming on Oklahoma state owned or operated property.”

Workers Compensation: State laws requires companies provide proof of worker’s compensation coverage. If a company has no employees the company may submit a Workers Compensation waiver letter.
