What exactly is a Fixer?


Production Assistant, Research Assistant, General Solver of Problems... A Fixer can fill many roles, depending on the sector. Basically - a Fixer is someone who solves problems and gets stuff done!


Fixers will most often act as a researcher, translator and guide, and will help to contact locals that the correspondent would not otherwise have access to.


They play a crucial role in the final outcome of a project in a foreign country. 

Why Hire a Fixer?


Whether you are a writer researching your upcoming novel, a film crew looking for off-the-beaten-track spots to film, or a journalist searching for people to interview, I can help you to organize and successfully complete your project in France.

France is the most visited country in the world, and the subject of countless books, articles and films. Filled with breathtakingly beautiful landscapes and a rich cultural heritage, it is also a country of exceptions. There are strict cultural guidelines on how to communicate, and more often than not plenty of red tape to negotiate. 

After 10+ years living in France, and working in Event Management and Communications, I am an expert organizer and  researcher, and know the magic words to convince locals to help with your project. I can help you to quickly complete your project by managing all aspects that involve contacting locals, handling communications, and organizing logistics.
