Biz Talk Episode 6 - Liability & Safety On Set

Nader Khouri, Photographer and APA SF Board Member hosts


This week we check-in with Michael Horta, owner and founder of MJ68 Productions, and Ed Gillman of APA Insurance Services.

Michael and his team have developed Covid-19 related set safety guidelines, which APA is endorsing. He will talk with us about the process of developing his company's guidelines, how to make them approachable to the client, and how he was able to get through his initial feelings of fear to feeling empowered through all of this. He was first interviewed by Andrea Stern on Navigating the Unknown recently.

Ed Gillman will report to us what is happening from an insurance perspective and address topics such as loss of income, general liability, and worker’s compensation.

Michael Horta serves as executive producer with MJ68 Productions, creating campaign images and videos for major global advertising campaigns. His production company started in 2006, primarily serving the automotive advertising business. Since 2012 it has expanded to a variety of clients which includes Mercedes AMG, Samsung, Coca Cola, Toyota, HBO, Apple and many more.

Collectively, they work with some of the top global and domestic photographers, directors and cinematographers creating original images and content.
