    We are working on a shoot in Bhutan towards end of January or February. I am looking for a fixer/local producer to help us organize the shoot. Any local contacts or tips based on first hand experience is appreciated. Thank you so much.

    Dear Reiko,
    We can assist you with filming in Bhutan. All equipment and crew would need to travel from India since Bhutan has no filming infrastructure.
    Please email your script/storyboard to so that we can take this further.
    Best regards,
    Avinash Shankar
