Everybody knows that the most fun is had in the creation process!

Getting set up…

Making sure that everything is perfect…

And finally having a successful shoot!

Then what?

Oh yeah… CLEAN UP.

Sure it isn’t always difficult, who wants to actually do it?  And then there are the times when it IS difficult… What then?

Enter… Great Dane Production Services!!

One of the things we do best is set demolition!

It matters not if the set is simply a temporary add-on to a current structure or an entire temporary structure.

We understand that the whole point behind set demolition is to return the location, as near as possible, to its original state or better. 

We are prepared to do what it takes not only to get the set torn down and removed but also to ensure the safety of the location before, during and after the set has been torn down and hauled away.

That means that we will protect any areas (outdoor or indoor) that can potentially be affected by the demolition process.

Indoor demolition can include any of the following as needed for each situation:

  • Flooring protection
    • Layout boards,
    • Carpet,
    • Drop cloths,
    • Tarps,
    • Etc
  • Surrounding area protection
    • Drop cloths over furniture, banisters, etc…
    • Windows and window sills protected as needed
    • Walls, doors, and other surfaces covered in drop cloths, plastic, or paper as necessary
