Bilingual Production Fixer
We fix your shoot in Spain!
Filming in foreign countries can have its own particular challenges: language barriers and the continual need for translation, different mentalities and cultural habits, and last but not least the attempts at searching and evaluating film locations from a distance can make pre-production a bit more difficult than at home…
And we all know that there is more to it than all that: film permits, organising crew transportation, catering, accommodation, sourcing local crew, extras, regulations, props and additional filming equipment…
Often logistical help and pre-production support are needed from a local professional. This is where our English-speaking fixers come in. A fixer is someone who is familiar with the country you want to film in but who also knows first hand which particular details are crucial for film production. That is why a fixer is not just able to make your pre-production process much easier but will also be a great help to you during your busy film production in Spain itself.
Sometimes the tasks of a fixer overlap with the work of a Location-Manager and sometimes they overlap with a Location Scout which always is a great help for any film-production in Spain.
Our production fixers can remotely find and check film locations for you according to your specifications!
Prior to your arrival in Spain a fixer can already provide you with highly relevant information, take photos on-site or send you short video clips of the location(s) so that you really get all the information necessary (as if you were on-site yourself) to evaluate locations and plan your shooting in Spain accordingly. We provide you with first-hand information and comprehensive advice covering all aspects of your production. Our Production fixers are the key people to bridging the gap between creative vision and feasibility.
We can also help you with getting paperwork and complying with local regulations. We can obtain film permits and special authorisations, arrange traffic blocks or get you access to exclusive areas.
In addition, we can source local actors and extras via casting agents in Spain, provide you with props and get you additional filming equipment and crew, such as cameramen, 1st ADs, camera assistants, gaffers, sound technicians, boom operators, runners, etc.

I am sorry that it was such a hectic shoot, but it really would not have been possible without you and Luis.
