Jo and Mark understand that lunch break time needs to be met and a crew need to be well fed within the time frame and can always adapt out time frames to meet your daily requirements. Natural Jo will sit down with you and plan every detail from timing, sizing and numbers to special dietary requirements or even security and transport challenges.
When we are booked and on the road with a film crew meal times can become quite an event good conversation and laughter from the kitchen truck along with fresh food and a well presented buffet table, lunch is always anticipated.
Dietary requirements is also something we are used to catering for we always ask before we start a shoot if any one is intolerant to anything particular we will then provide a specific meal for them.
Jo has played a huge part of managing and operating Doof Doof through challenging logistics of catering locations all around New Zealand. We can get the food there, whereever and whatever you are shooting.
It’s a very different and sometimes difficult environment but we firmly believe we have found a working formula that is beneficial to both the caterer and the production companies we work with. I guess you could say our delicious fuel will add value to your shoot. Having a on site caterer is always a benefit and a incentive for your crew to get the job done.
