    Hi there, I am looking for a Colombian fixer in the coffee region.

    I would like to introduce myself briefly: my name is Britt de Jeu and I am a producer at the Dutch branded content media company Towel Media. We are going to make a 6-part online series to promote a limited edition iced coffee from Colombian coffee beans. In this series, 4 Belgians will make a 2-week tour through the Colombian coffee region. During this trip they will receive assignments in the field of art and cooperation with local Colombian people.

    I am looking for a local fixer for arranging business locally (eg permits, admission locations, transport, accommodation, props). The trip will take place in mid-January / February 2019.

    I’d love to get in toch with reliable fixers. Thank you in advance for dropping their names or get in touch with me!

    Hi Britt

    Sounds like a cool project and we´d love to get involved as I´m sure we would be able to help you with this, my name is John Paul (I´m from the UK) and together with my Colombian partner Luna we run Screen Colombia.

    Over the past 10 years Screen Colombia has completed almost 100 international productions including working with your fellow countrymen Dutch clients Endemol and Talpa. We´ve also worked with broadcasters such as the BBC, Netflix, Nat Geo and the Discovery Channel as well as providing branded content for organisations such as Facebook, Google and DHL amongst others. A full credit list and references are available on request.

    We´ve filmed numerous coffee related branded content and commercials in the Coffee growing regions and have excellent contacts and providers throughout the regions and with the National Coffee Federation of Colombia.

    Previous coffee productions include commercials and documentary content working with real local farmers, communities and coffee growers. We´ve worked with agencies such as JWT, BBDO & Havas to provide content for clients such as Taylors Coffee, Green Mountain/Keurig and Nespresso as well as a documentary for the World Coffee Federation exploring the effects of climate change on local coffee farmers.

    We specialise in non-scripted format, reality and documentary so I´m sure we would be the right fit for your project.
