  • Hello,

    We are producing a series of 5′ video city guides with a foodie angle, showcasing the destinations our client travels to.

    We have already shot in Rome and Muscat, the next destination is Norway, with a focus on Alesund and Geiranger.

    We are looking for a fixer / producer that can:

    – Help on the ground while we are in Norway
    – Help us with equipment rentals (probably only a C300) in Alesund, if possible.
    – Someone to work with us in the pre-production stages, to help organise the itinerary and sort out location permits.
    – Someone to help organise the interviews and source talent if needed.

    Please let me know if there’s anyone that might be able to help.
