Hello, I’m producing and directing a low budget, one-location film. It’s a 24 day shoot and since I was a fry cook for 11yrs, I had the idea of renting a mobile kitchen, hiring a couple of local cooks and feeding my 35 person cast and crew that way, instead of hiring a catering company.
Like I said, it’s a one-location shoot, so there’s no daily breakdown-move-setup hassles. I have a friend at a local restaurant, who would let me park some supplies in his walk-in freezer and cold box. He could also find me some dependable cooks.
My main concern is:
- Food cost – would it be cheaper in the long run than a catering company?
- The health dept. and permits. When I worked in food service, we all feared the health dept.
So, I’d like your input on this –
- thanks Craig Tarry
