Truck Stop

During the making of "Truck Stop," the FBL team and the actors enjoyed a wonderful combination of casting. The actors seemed at home in the scene, which was filmed in a real truck stop restaurant. Minimal redecorating was involved.

The flashback scene of the truck driver arguing with his wife was also shot in the truck stop restaurant, in the next room. The crew was able to hang homelike curtains and put other household items in the room to make it look like a living room.

One challenge was that the actor who plays the truck driver in the spot did not have experience driving an eighteen-wheeler. In the scene where he drives out of the parking lot, a real truck driver is crouching down next to him, out of sight of the camera, operating the gears and pedals so that the truck moves properly.

Just came across these after watching one on TV & had to go on the website. This is really a special one cause my Dad (R.I.P) used to drive trucks & now 2 other very special men do also and it just reminds me of ALL 3 of them cause they are men of true character & faithful to the people that matter in their lives. I know all 3 have done the same
