Industry Discounts

Identify yourself as a Digital Cinema Society member to receive special benefits and pricing from the following organizations. Save Money While Supporting the businesses of DCS fellow members.

Thimble.com — Short Term Online Small Business Insurance

Thimble.com is an insurance broker that arranges for coverage by the hour, day, or month in as little as 60 seconds online.  For a recent DCS shoot, we were able to cover our two person crew with a one million dollar liability policy for as little as $35 a day which includes sending out certificates of insurance as necessary at no additional charge.

This kind of policy might not be right for larger scale productions, but it seems ideal for the small one-off shoots that sometimes come up for documentaries, corporate, and educational productions.  Why pay for an expensive annual policy when you are only shooting for a day or two?  Next time this comes up, we suggest you check out Thimble.com.  And if you use the following link to signup, DCS will get a small finders fee.  So, save yourself some money and help support DCS:  https://thimble.sjv.io/DjYXn
