  • Hi,

    I am working on a Travel Channel show and we are planning to shoot in Norway and France the beginning of June. I am having a hard time finding fixers who might be able to help in those two areas.

    Specifically I need one in Oslo, Norway and one in Upper Normandy, France.

    Can anyone offer any suggestions for these two areas?

    Hi Maura,

    My name is Mickael, I’m a fixer/Line producer at Purple Papaya Films. We’re based in Paris and we specialise in assisting foreign crews that come to film in France.

    We’ve worked a few times with the Travel Channel, last time was last November on the Paris episode of the “Metropolis” series. We’re also proud to be the first contact for the BBC when they come filming their documentaries in France.

    We’ve worked in Normandy before and we’re in good contact with the local Film Commission, I’m sure we’ll be able to help you organise your shoot.

    Feel free to contact me or drop me a line if you’d like to discuss your project. I look forward to hearing from you.

    All the best,

    Mickaël Bec
