As a go-to film catering company, we’ve learned that an efficient catering solution is the key to ensuring there are no unexpected diva moments on set.. Especially when it comes to those longer filming projects, where days can often feel monotonous. Film cast and crew members work extremely hard, and deserve to be rewarded with sufficient nourishment to keep them going throughout the day, and ensure they capture the perfect shot. We’re here to share what we’ve discovered along the way to establishing Fire Up Pizza as one of the most trusted Film and TV catering companies.
An industry that relies on the indebted commitment and dedication of film cast and crews, the world of Film and TV can often feel far from glamorous when it comes to working behind the scenes. Call times can start before the sun rises, and lunch breaks can easily be pushed back to dinnertime.
With the unpredictably of a busy filming schedule, a successful film catering solution should aim to have food prepared and ready for serving at any time of the day. Most importantly, a fast and staggered service is needed to ensure everybody is fueled in between short breaks, which can range between 30-40 minutes to break up 12-14 hour days!
Friendly faces make everything easier
As a matter of personal preference, we’ve always found that opting for a no-agency policy when it comes to selecting who we choose to carry out our service, works best for everyone. Providing a personalised, reliable and friendly service is paramount to us, and building a team of friendly faces that you will get to know over those long days of filming can be crucial to keeping a relaxed and energising atmosphere in those spare moments between takes.
We love when our clients can get to know the real us.
