a production i am working on wants to rent several cars from private owners and not through a special movie car rental facility. the idea is that this will save him a lot of money. how does one go about getting insurance for the length of time you are renting the car from somebody or don't people usually do that? is it a matter of a special contract or using a car's existing insurance but agreeing to pay the deductable? any insight would be much appreciated.

I've never dealt with it personally but I'm positive that getting insurance on it would be a standard. I'm quite sure that being used as a picture car (and associated risks) are not covered by standard auto insurance.

You'll need an aggregate on your insurance liabliity form specifically naming the people and liability terms and/or a special policy. Best to ask your insurance company that handles your general liability.
