Logistics, fixing and journalistic assistance
For several years now, we have been applying our expertise and knowledge in the service of television and cinema.
Our knowledge of the region, its cultures, its language and its ecosystems are assets for the work of the fixer, right-hand man of the reporter and essential ally of the journalist.
Interpreters, translators, scientific consultants, facilitators, technicians, logisticians and professionals of all kinds, our work list is long and structured. We have the contacts and take you to the right people. Our knowledge of the field will allow you to save precious time, both during pre-production and during the shooting. We also have extensive experience in translation for post-production.
Our experience in the field of natural history has enabled us to help in the making of several naturalist documentaries, on Andean bears, hummingbirds, Andean condors, Ecuadorian volcanoes and many other themes.
Ultralight aviation, horses, speedboats, helicopters, hot-air balloons, as far as logistics are concerned, we also have what you need.
Our knowledge has enabled major television channels and production houses to produce their images in the best conditions (BBC, NHK, France5, TV5, ARTE).
We also know all the ins and outs of filming permit applications, an essential element for filming in complete serenity.
We also take care of transcriptions and translations. Our presence during filming gives us a better knowledge of the content and allows us to save time during the final production process.
