    Hi colleagues!
    Can anyone tell me what the going rates are for fixers in NYC? We are looking to shoot a short corporate video in NYC in April (4-5 days shoot) and might need some help on locations, getting around and permits. But first of all I need to know what the rates typically are.

    You are welcome to contact me and my producer-colleague on the below mail address if you have any questions.

    Hi Millie and Mikael,

    I work as a freelance Production Manager or “Fixer” here in NYC.
    Depending on the scope of your project normal rates for a Prod. Mgr in NYC range from $500 to $700 pr/dy.

    Please feel free to contact me if you have any other questions or are looking to hire someone for your project.

    I have attached my resume for your review.

    Good luck!

    Hi Mille & Mikael,

    Thank you for reaching out! RFI has a deep bench of skilled freelancers and great NYC locations. I have a few questions about your project and a few links to share with some recent work that I will send in an email.

    Rates for an experienced NYC fixer usually fall between $550 – $750 depending on how complicated the shoot. New York City is a VERY film friendly city, but you need to have someone with experience to help you make the most effective decisions regarding schedule and budget.

    Speak soon,

    Hi Millie/Mikael,

    I have a locations company in New York City – – and frequently provide production services for overseas corporate video also. For a fixer, depending on what help you need, it would be between $500 – $800 per day. As I have an extensive library of locations in New York and the Tri-State area, I am able to tie in locations and services as a package.

    My direct email is
