Hi, all I just got the first job as Steadicam Op. I was really excited but the producer told me this and am really worried now. Here's what he said: "Just so you know, our insurance may not cover you if you are "owner-operator" (because CA state requires you carry your insurance as contractor; thus many production insurances don't cover owner-operators who are contractors). So use your company as a rental company then there's no problem." As a new guy, I haven't set up a company for my Steadicam yet. I'm just wondering if what he's saying is true and I have to use my own insurance or if it's false and there's a way to get it covered. Thanks,
