Re: Videographer As Crew
We can acquire liability insurance if the end user seeks it. As it is, we are careful to obtain signed releases for all people who appear in our work. The liability insurance only insures against fraud, appropriating a name without permission, that kind of thing. It does nothing for the boat and it's crew. Since our proposition is to do a video for the ownership of the yacht which he can use to show his family and friends or to motivate others, we don't believe the captain needs a special license. He is already charging people for a good time by saying, "you pay expenses", now he would be saying, "and the expenses are $200 more over the trip per person to pay for the cost of the videographer."
