FiveSix Productions on: Smashing Trucks

So, here's the thing, most of the time, those little signs on the bottom of overpasses, tunnels, bridges, parking garage entrances, etc. can be ignored... but sometimes they shouldn't be. For instance, if you're in a tall truck, if you play in the NBA, or maybe you're on a pogo stick, you'd probably want to proceed with caution. When you're in a vehicle that's tall, make sure to know just how tall it is, so that you know if it's safe to proceed past low hanging obstacles and barriers. We saw this truck recently that did not check all the stats before proceeding...


For your convenience, here is our most up-to-date list of clearance levels for some of the properties on Vegas Blvd.
Wynn: 8'2"
Caesars: 6'8"
Mandalay Bay: 7'2"
Rio: 7'6"
Cosmopolitan: 8'2"
MGM Conference Center: 8'8"
Aria: 7'6"
Bellagio 7'6"
Venetian: 6'8" (Easy access oversized lot adjacent)
Palazzo: 7"
Mirage: 6'10"

Best of luck.

Building a grip truck

Ok. So our production team has been using a pickup truck and a minivan to accommodate all of our different productions. The shoots have gotten larger, we have added a ton of new gear, but the cars have always stayed the same. It's time for a change.

We just picked up a Ford Transit 350 to build out. The question for us is how do we outfit it? After careful consideration, we have added 2 sets of shelves, some wall mounted E-track and a floor mounted E-track. We have a custom flag/bounce box being built and are looking forward to seeing this all come together.

Here are some photos of our work in progress.
