Fixing and Production Support
Location Scouting & Management Fixer Services
Within the process of film production, location scouts typically work in tandem with production managers and directors. A major influence in the success of any film or television shoot will be the choice of locations, while knowledgable scouts with good English language ability are familiar with local geography and architecture.
A good scout remains always aware of the specific logistical demands of particular locations and communicates these details clearly to other production staff. For instance, certain urban locations will require a more involved permitting process. Other rural locations can increase the expenses of transportation and lodging. These factors add up and may influence location decisions to a great degree.
Permits Fixing Services
The reality of film production in any country inevitably necessitates the obtaining of filming permits. Films shooting without a permit engage in what is called guerilla filmmaking, which causes undue risks to the production. It is always a good idea to obtain a film permit as early as possible and whenever possible in order to avoid principal production delay. A Thailand film fixer can walk you through this process and make it as easy as possible.
Having local connections and knowing the right people in official capacities is of paramount importance in this regard. In a sense, allying your production with a good local fixer is the most important aspect of shooting in a foreign country. This is especially applicable in Thailand and other Asia Pacific nations. Connections are a resource fixers leverage for the overall benefit of all stages of the production process.
Equipment and Crew Services
On rare occasions, visiting productions to Thailand and other foreign countries elect to import all their gear. Usually, this is not necessary, as local fixers and producers can help to rent equipment and hire suitable crew for any role on a film set. Fixers will know which locally available crew members possess specific experience applicable to a given project. This includes staff language abilities and prior training according to international production standards.
Local fixers will also know how to find the best equipment for a particular job. This includes the latest camera gear, as well as rare specialty equipment for action shots and underwater photography. Local fixers are also very keyed into the different production companies operating on the ground in Thailand, and are thus adept at linking visiting productions with the best support network for a particular job.
