We were hired by an independent adjusting firm and insurers to review the economic damages claimed in relation to a production loss on a motion picture being filmed overseas. The production loss resulted from a re-shoot that occurred two months after the end of scheduled production. The re-shoot occurred as a result of the lead actor being injured.
Our role included assessing travel costs related to the crew who left the country before the re-shoot and the costs of the re-shoot itself. We were required to review these records in detail to ensure that costs claimed for the re-shoot were not for employees who had already left the site. Based on our review, we made an appropriate determination of the additional costs incurred as a result of the delay versus the normal costs that would have been incurred in any event.
