    Hi Phil,
    I would love to help if you still need someone. When do you need a fixer for? I am away this coming week but available apart from that. Feel free to email me at Here is my linkedin:

    I am location manager and very used in locations scouting and permits needed when shooting in Paris, camera vehicles as well. Let me know your expectations and if I can be the person you need, it will be with great pleasure to work with you.
    Best Regards,
    Michel Imbert

    I see that Michel already replied to you, he’s a friend of mine and we are both AFR members.
    Nevertheless if you need more help with you’re Paris locations issues I’m available for scouting or getting permits, used to Paris shootings and camera vehicles, such as this japanese Honda film ad I’ve been doing in april, 3 days in Paris with a technocrane on a camera car.
