Hi,
I'm shooting a film in Albania and Macedonia. I want to insure my meters, camera's and laptop.
Do any of you have any experience in these countries or know the best place to find insurance.


Thanks,

David Morrison

Hey David,
Can you use AAA travel insurance? I think you may be able to. Or what I'd do is have production cover you. I did a big travel job once and the production covered all my equipment, did the paperwork and everything.

All I can tell you is be really careful in Albania. I was doing a project in Tirana in 2000 and people were really agressive, eyeballing equipment, etc.
It is a poor country and your light meter represents one month's salary to a lot of people.
Be careful!
