Michigan Crafty  Michigan Crafty & Film Production Catering is full service. We will work with you on craft services and catering or a combination of both. We have sources for transportation, tent rentals, equipment rentals, lodging referrals and more. Need crew? Ask us. We've worked with talented Michigan crew.

Michigan Crafty is experienced with television, cable, feature films and indies. HBO’s crew has told us we have the “best crafty in the industry.” TNT’s reality show Wedding Day is coming back to Detroit and we are already contracted for a “repeat performance” for their catering and craft. On All's Faire In Love, they loved us so much, we were contracted for crafty and took over midstream on the catering services.

We know how to cater to the film industry. Our craft service team is all over your set with high protein snacks, lattes, beverages and sweet treats all day long. Each morning we deliver snack baskets to base camp so your talent is well taken care of. We’ll make sure the director has his cappuccino when he wants it and the producer and talent get protein smoothies. We’ll move with you all day long. Just hide us behind a tree and we know how to stay out of sight while you are filming just a few feet away. Our service is the best you will find in Michigan and we do cover the entire state with you. Freshly made meals, much of it cooked on site are part of our standard services, which are in no way to be considered standard. It’s excellent! Need us mobile, we’ll use our mobile kitchen and our mobile crafty trailer to follow you to every location. Use us for your second meals, to feed extras and to keep your cast and crew happy with great meals and service. Whatever your needs, we are your best choice for food and crafty services on the set.

Our professional craft services team makes call time and is there past the 'martini shot". You will come to know and love our staff as they go out of their way with our midwest hospitality to make sure you have what you need, when you need it. Have a headache? We have the aspirin. Getting a little red in the sun, stop by crafty for some spray-on sun screen. Need a little pick-me-up? You'll find a double espresso at the crafty table. We'll keep your thirst at bay, your hunger pangs away and we'll have everything you need while on location.

Snack baskets at the trailers in base camp each morning with fresh pastries, waters, juices and protein bars, or whatever special requests the talent makes. These baskets are refreshed several times during the day.
