    my name is Boris Velican (36), producer and PM in Croatia. I have MA in Film, TV and Theatre production.
    Among many things I did, a few projects I did for canadian producer Daniel Clarke (“Max Schmeling”, “Blood Rayne” etc… imdb.com)
    I’m interested in servicing foreign producer as PM. As a freelancer, I can advise which servicing company is the best for the project intended to be shot. Croatia has VAT refund asweel as tax credit.

    Dear Jim,

    I am a fixer experienced in working with foreign TV and documentary film crews in Croatia and Bosnia. I also have experience with travel stories and good connections in tourism industry.

    Normally, I help the producers or directors, before they get here, with the story background and fact checking, I provide story ideas or help develop them, suggest who to interview, provide contacts with local officials, obtain all necessary shooting (and other) permits, and organize their stay and shooting here in Croatia.

    During the shooting, I travel with the crew, serving as a fixer, interpreter and location manager.

    After the shooting is done, being a professional interpreter and translator, I often also translate the interviews, with exact time codes.

    Recently I helped a French TV documentary series crew: I organized the whole schedule for their shooting in Croatia, Slovenia and Serbia, their transportation, accomodation and food, served as liaison with the persons they planned to interview, found and negotiated locations for the shooting, helped with fact checking, and even served as a set dresser.

    And, last, but not least, I am good with intersting and unusual ideas :)

    When I’m not on location with foreign TV crews, I work in tourism and services industry as a consultant and coach.

    I have already worked with Canadians, both English and French speaking, during the war, and it was a very good experience, so I’m looking forward to working with you. If we agree, I can make my schedule free for the preparation period (along my other work) and the shooting between November 8 to 24th 2013.

    I’ll send you my CV and more details,

    Best,

    Mirta,

    Dear Jim,

    I am writing from a Croatian production company as a response to your request for a fixer in Croatia for the Travel series.

    Over the last six years Kabinet has obtained a leading position in Croatia in commercial shooting production and more recently in feature film production.

    Our team consists of producers, production managers and directors with a wide-range of experience in production, servicing and directing of TVCs, feature length fiction and documentary films.

    As a team in our intensive work we have covered most of Croatia working for and with both domestic and foreign crews.

    You can see a lot of out commercial work on our website. Although, as a production company we have not independently produced a TV documentary travel series, as a team in our intensive work we have covered most of Croatia shooting with both domestic and foreign crews.
    We would be more than happy to see to all of your production’s needs and suggest a team among us or appoint and individual to help you prep the shooting in Croatia.

    Best regards from Zagreb,

    Tiha
