    Hi, I’m looking for a fixer asap in Paris.

    We are coming to Paris to shoot a music video, which will be documentary style (no artist to feature or music playback)

    It will be based around urban basketball. So we need help finding people to appear on screen, locations, booking camera kit and small crew.

    You will also need to drive the crew bus when the small uk crew (director, producer, dop) arrive.

    You need to be able to speak fluent french (obviously) and English.

    The shoot is in the next few weeks, but I need to start pulling costs together today.

    Please only email neil| Do not phone


    A great source for freelance location fixers / location finders (scouts) and location managers in Paris is the PARIS FILM OFFICE:

    Hello Neil,

    I saw your request on the Location Guide site.

    I could help you with pleasure.

    I do often this king of services for Japanese, US, British, Canadian or Australian productions.

    I am also used to drive 9 seaters.
    I can do as well real line production as “simple” fixer jobs.

    If you need references, I can send you a list of my recent jobs, as my website was not updated recently.
    I can work on y own, or work through a French company, Froggie Production, depending on the scale of the job, for example if other French crew (and payrolls) or insurances are needed.

    I can make an estimate if you tell more about your needs.

    Best regards
