Actors sometimes have contractual guarantees listing certain items they want on set. In these cases, you’ll need to ensure you provide those foods and drinks. In other instances, craft services may want to serve snacks on a commercial shoot’s schedule. Catering provides the best solution with the following options:
- Breakfast: A breakfast with hot or cold platters or a buffet-style assortment can fuel the whole team with energy in the morning. Some popular staples to get everyone ready to film include fresh fruit, yogurt, bagels, muffins, scones, eggs, bacon, sausage and hash browns with coffee, water and juices.
- Sandwiches: At the midday point on a production set, set members can benefit from a boost of energy with assorted hot or cold sandwiches. Pre-made and do-it-yourself deli platters offer opportunities for everyone on set to enjoy nourishing ingredients with vegan, vegetarian and meat-lover choices on freshly baked bread.
- Box lunches: A boxed lunch provides even more ways to keep your stars and crew happy with homemade items such as sandwiches, soups and salads. Sides, like chips or fruit, and cookies for dessert will leave everyone satisfied and ready to shoot the next scene.
- Traditional hot food: Some sets may provide hot food catering to keep actors and crew members satisfied or celebrate the final production day with a wrap party. A hot spread can include a themed or build-your-own arrangement of foods such as soups, salads, sandwiches, pasta, chicken, barbecue and more.
