It's what we do
The team at Splitz Facilities have a number of key responsibilities when out on location and will give you a hand and are part of your team during a shoot. They must ensure that their vehicle arrives in good time at a specified location, which often means starting work very early just to beat our traffic. They will have thoroughly researched, in advance, the best route to the location. For very remote locations, reaching the unit can be difficult for our larger vehicles, so considerable planning may be required to arrange suitable access usually taken care of by the location department. This may sometimes involve an advance recce of the location and liaising with the Location Manager, they must also find the best place to park the location vehicle so the crew can set up without causing obstruction.
Before the shoot starts. Drivers will prepare their vehicle, making sure that it is warm, clean and ready for use by the artists and crew before they arrive, and that all the appliances are in full working order. Throughout the shoot they are responsible for the maintenance of the vehicle, its safety, and its cleanliness. At the end of the shooting day drivers must clean and refresh the unit before its next day ready for its next job, and may also need to drive it to the next location if working on a longer production. Driver/Standbys work very long hours, as they are often the first to arrive at location and are the very last to leave.
