BRING YOUR FILM TO LIFE
Directors and filmmakers often choose on location filming to achieve a greater sense of realism and bring vivid and authentic details to their productions. But finding appropriate locations for films or sourcing the right equipment can be a challenge with lots of complicated logistics to keep in mind.
We partner not only with towns and corporate event hosts but also with imaginative filmmakers to make renting fair rides easy and rewarding. When it comes to creating a fun and colorful backdrop for your movie or TV series, nothing beats a lively fair. Think of movies like the 1978 film, “Grease,” or the carnival-centric film, “Adventureland” from 2009. Neither would be able to achieve some of their iconic scenes without real amusement rides and carnival details on set.
RENTING CARNIVAL RIDES FOR LOCATION FILMING
NAME has more than 200 fair ride rentals in our inventory and we’re ready to work with you to find the right rides to make your filming vision a reality. Maybe you’re looking for an iconic ferris wheel to send your characters on a romantic ride above the fairgrounds. Or perhaps you’re interested in shooting scenes of your cast playing classic fair games. Whatever you have in mind, we’ve got your back.
FAIR RIDE MANAGEMENT INCLUDED
If you choose to partner with us for your location shooting, our experienced midway staff will provide all of the necessary tools, equipment and staff. We take care of the set up and tear down, and ensure there is onsite management available to operate the rides and answer any questions the film crew may have. It’s our belief that success comes from strong and communicative partnerships and we look forward to helping you make an outstanding production.
CELEBRATE YOUR FILM OR TV RELEASE
One of the benefits of renting fair rides from NAME is the opportunity to transform your event into an exciting branded experience. We offer various ways to tie your film or TV series name, logo, and imagery into our amusement park rides and games so that your event matches your production’s theme. Usher guests into a carnival that is transformed into the world of your production by adding decals and custom elements throughout the fair experience.
Recently, NAME brought the Netflix original, “Stranger Things” to life in collaboration with the Calgary Stampede. Everything from the towering ferris wheel to the popcorn we sold at food stalls offered guests a way to interact with characters and visuals of the hit TV series. It was a great opportunity to feature the season’s launch on the fairgrounds and provide an interactive experience for the show’s fans.
Whether you’re looking for location filming opportunities or want to celebrate the success of your production and create stronger brand connections we can help form an exceptional carnival rental experience tailored to your needs. Just get in touch with our Business and Event Development Office to get the cameras rolling!
