On Location Paradise

Mentorn USA Inc./Tour Pros Ltd.

KM56 was sought as a partner to manage on-location craft services for a Fox Network reality based television project. We faced the unique challenge of being at a remote site with limited services in Mexico. The staff, crew and talent totaled over 200 people, with multiple shooting/eating schedules and unique dietary requirements.

What ensued was a strategic 8 weeks of 24 hours a day, on-site food, beverage and bodega services. We were in operation for the entire duration of the production, including the pre-production build-out and strike/tear down time. Around the clock service accommodated a fluid shooting schedule as well as the unique travel schedules of the staff, crew and talent. We knew who was eating when, and provided cuisine to fit the dietary restrictions of each person eating at each specified time. Budget goals were managed in a cohesive efficient manner in order to limit waste in production shoot time and perishable food product.

This project required meticulous attention to detail and extensive planning in order to fulfill intense, ever-changing production schedules.
