AS FIXERS WE DO WHAT WE LOVE

 

Every production has different requirements. Sometimes all that’s needed is to arrange for filming permits, equipment or crew. Other productions require extensive research, special locations or handling the complete shoot in Germany.

And that’s exactly what we like so much about our job. Every production is different and special. One week we are filming hamsters in the famous German wilderness for Apple TV+, the next we are interviewing German national soccer players for History Channel. For the next production we do a real-people casting for a Microsoft TVC, before we dive into archive research for a historic documentary on looted art.

We love everything documentary and journalistic, but we feel equally at home in the areas of branded content and commercial shooting.

As fixers we work in major cities like Berlin, Hamburg, Frankfurt, Munich and Cologne, while for some productions we explore the most remote places.

OUR EXPERIENCE AS FIXERS

 

For years Christina  worked as a producer and production manager for German companies, where she gained lots of experience with fixers. As a result, she’s keenly aware of the responsibilities being a fixer entails.

The fixer is essential for the success of your production in Germany. As a foreign production company you rely on the fixer to deliver on its promises, because if not the worst case scenario can see a lot of money can go up in smoke.

We take our responsibility very seriously and are only satisfied when our customers are (view testimonials).

Our clients include BBC, DISCOVERY CHANNEL, TELEKOM, AMAZON PRIME, SAATCHI & SAATCHI, NETFLIX and many more.

ABOUT FILMING IN GERMANY

 

Filming in Germany can be a little tricky sometimes as the official language is German only. This is especially crucial when it comes to shooting permits.

In cities like Berlin getting location permits can easily take 2-4 weeks. In some cases, the procedures for filming permits are extremely complex e.g. when three different official permits are required for one single location.

Sometimes valuable time is lost when clients try to obtain the filming permits themselves. Nothing is more unfavourable for a production to be postponed.

You can accomplish your objective much faster, easier and cheaper with an experienced fixer. Make sure to work with a native German speaker with fluent English language skills.
