    We are looking for an experienced fixer in NORWAY for a UK Channel 4 factual travelogue programme.

    The role will include:
    – being a sounding board/point of reference for the Director and provide ideas and suggestions on locations, stories and contributors
    – providing an ‘off the beaten track’/insiders view to Norway and help generate interesting and unusual ideas
    – providing contacts/places of interest that are not available to us via the internet
    – assisting with translation and logistics
    – having a good command of spoken and written English
    – Prep dates are flexible and on an ad-hoc basis (ideally along side other work)
    – available to film between 23 Sept-2 Oct OR 17-25 October (FILMING DATES TBC)

    CVs must have factual credits and and a UK reference must be provided. A background in journalism would be helpful but not essential.

    Many Thanks

    Hi there

    I was notified about your need for help in Norway. I’m fluent in English, used to work as a journalist when in university, and have been producing TVC’s since. Mostly service production.

    English references; several, but was line producer for Warner Bros. on Harry Potter when they shot in Norway. Tim Lewis was the English producer.

    Pls send an email if this is interesting!

    Regards, Jarle

    Hello Channel 4.

    My name is Eirik Vaage and I´m a line producer and location manager from the west coast of Norway. My speciality is to assist foreign productions, primarily feature films and commercials. I have a master in journalism and documentary. I did my bachelor at Griffith University in Australia.

    My small company is located in the middle of the norwegian alps in a small town called Ørsta. (link: http://www.frostmedia.no) Since 2006 we have been working with a lot of different foreign companies and my experience varies from co-production, line-production, location scouting and production management. I´m also involved in Orange Aerial as a cineflex operator (link: http://www.orangeaerial.com).

    I enjoy being part of the creative process in developing stories – especially in a documentary production style. I hope my services can be of use for your upcoming factual travelogue program.

    My last british production was Marvel Studio´s Thor 2, which I location managed in the Lofoten Islands (north of Norway).

    Hi Joy Scott,

    I like to offer my services for your upcoming production in Norway.

    I work as a freelance line producer and producer. Among my latest credits is producing a factual travel programme series for the biggest commercial broadcaster in Norway (TV2). I have lived/worked in the US so my English is fluent. I have extensive experience with service productions, including jobs for Radical Media London and Disney Channel UK.

    I work together with one of the most experienced location scouts/managers in Norway. This means we have access to a huge location/contact archive. My colleague has been involved with location scouting/management on several projects related to travel in Norway.

    We will be happy to assist you with a cost effective way of solving all your needs, and we are confident we have the right experience to help you generate interesting ideas as well as giving you an insiders guide to Norway. Thank you for your time and consideration.

    Regards,

    Dear Joy,

    I own 18 years experience in production, 15 of which have been in Norway servicing visiting productions through my company, Leader Films. As an ex US patriot, I like to believe that I possess a good command of the English language, albeit with a Rocky Mtn. accent.

    I first arrived in Norway as an inter-rail tourist 20 some years ago, and consequently I see the country with a different lens than someone who grew up here. Also note that I have directed on a plethora of projects and therefore have a good starting point for understanding your director’s needs.

    I have several UK references, including Giant Films “Age of Heroes”, Turner Broadcasting, London “Exxon Mobil”, and Wark-Clement / BBC “A Very Different Miss World”. Please reference my CV for details and contact me at your convenience.

    Kind regards,

    David Leader
