90% of our drivers work mainly in the film industry with hustles on the side. We enjoy what we do and who we do it with. No matter what department we're working in, no two days are the same and that's what most of us are attracted to, rising to the challenges and reveling in the adventures. It sounds exotic but it's no different from other industries where we work long hours, often at night and in the rain with everyone pitching in to wrap and set up unit and tech bases, drive the same route a hundred times a day in a shuttle, or sit for hours in a vehicle waiting for cast members or ATL's. But we do this often in the most picturesque locations in New Zealand, which is what makes it such an attractive and addictive option for drivers.
One of the aims of the NZ Film Drivers Alliance is to offer training modules so everyone's on the same page. A brief overview of powering up a few weeks ago was revealing to even some of our most experienced drivers so that's where we're going to start.
So, if you're already a film driver, based anywhere in New Zealand, and want to be listed, go here.
If you're interested in becoming a film driver, go to the same place and we'll call you to talk through your driving experience and give an overview of what we do.
And if you need experienced, trained drivers for any department, you're welcome...
