Fixer Spain works in a similar way to a fully-fledged production company, but is able to generally offer better prices because we have minimum fixed costs.
While our fixers can autonomously sort locations, access and general production help, we can hire extra crew and sort logistics through local suppliers on project-based assignments.
The services we currently offer include:
- Local help for international journalists
- General production support for
- TV programmes
- Crew hire
- Kit hire (through local partners)
Assistance for Foreign Journalists Covering Spain
Our Spanish fixers have extensive knowledge in doing reports for international media. Whether it is a remote village, a high official or a well-known singer, our network of contacts across the country can generally get access and book interviews with relative ease.
Our fixers can also help with doing the initial research and fact checking.
General Production Support (TV, Commercial, Film, Documentary)
Our film fixers in Spain can assist international productions from the initial stage to completion.
We have extensive knowledge in setting up shoots around Spain and our local service suppliers have previously been vetted.
Crew Sourcing & Equipment Hire
With more affordable rates than most places in Western Europe, equipment hire and crew sourcing in Spain can be done with relative ease.
There are many options to rent filming kit in Spain. However, the equipment generally needs to be shipped from bigger cities like Madrid, Barcelona or Seville. Since they have a relationship with most providers, our Spanish production fixers are generally able to get decent local rates for rentals.
Given the number of productions that have chosen Spain as a filming location in recent years, the availability of English-speaking cameramen, soundmen and other crew members is quite high. The work ethics tends to be similar to anywhere else in Western Europe. All crew members have a background in working with both Spanish production companies and international ones.
Location Scouting in Spain
With popular filming locations spread all around the country, our production fixers have a good enough network of contacts to book locations anywhere from Galicia to Catalunya and Andalucia.
We have thorough knowledge of getting filming permits and managing small or big-scale productions.
