  • Looking for a fixer for tv travel show shooting in Johannesburg ( shooting from 3-7 of January 2016 ) and Mozambique ( shooting from 12-18 of January 2016 )

    We don’t need to rent equipment as we bring all the necessary gear. It’s not a big shooting and we do it as reality show.

    We need help with permissions, translation and communication with local people.

    Hi Yulia
    I have seen your post on Location Guide. I am a TV and film facilitator in Johannesburg with 28 years of experience. I can set up your shoot here and make arrangements for Mozambique as well with trusted colleagues there.
    If you would like to send me more details of what you need I can put a timeline and a quote together for you.
    I work as an independent with no huge overheads so I can keep the budget tight – in fact many of my clients are amazed at what I achieve within their budgets.
    You can either email me on or call 00 27 83 259-6324. If you’d prefer to Skype please send me an email with a good time and I will make sure I am online. My Skype handle is karenmaxbrooks.
    All the best
