Santa Ana, Calif., July 17, 2006 - How do you keep actors sure-footed in four feet of foam? For the Warner Bros. film Spring Breakdown (slated for release in 2007), the production resources department picked the ½ inch Dura-Chef mats to provide comfort and traction in filming a "foam party" scene.
The storyline of Spring Breakdown revolves around three thirty-something friends who break the monotony of their uninspired lives by vacationing on an island that's a popular spring break getaway for college co-eds. One of the women, who works for a powerful senator, is assigned to keep tabs on the senator's daughter (one of those co-eds). But the daughter is just as geeky as her chaperones. The movie is being directed by Ryan Shiraki, and stars Rachel Dratch, Amy Poehler and Parker Posey.
The production resources department tapped the Dura-Chef matting for its superb combination of traction and comfort. The ½ inch thick Dura-Chef is lightweight and durable, and offers beveled edges to allow easy access to equipment. Though primarily designed as a kitchen matting for restaurants, the Dura-Chef is a good option for any areas requiring a combination of drainage, anti-fatigue characteristics and anti-slip traction
