Filming at a Joplin Truckers Jamboree can provide you with a unique finished product. Here are some tips on making your location shoot the best:

  • Contact us early enough to provide lead time for staff and site preparation.
  • Be prepared to provide references from other shoots and a complete outline of project and filming schedule.
  • Assign a “locations” person from your staff to conduct communications with a member of the Joplin 44 staff.
  • Please identify any specific power requirements at least two weeks prior to filming date.
