A fixer is a local producer with contacts and knowledge of the specified city who plans and organizes all of your video production needs.
Featured fixer: Ben in Spain
Our clients love Ben! Fully bilingual, this British native has lived in Spain for over six years now, fixing shoots for just about every major media company and corporation you can think of. Ben is detail oriented and results driven – the consummate “go-to guy.”
Don’t make the mistake of getting a dumpy hotel way too far away from your shoot. Tell us what you need and we’ll make sure you sleep well.
It only takes one curious cop to ruin your shoot. Why take the risk? We’ll have your permits ready when you arrive.
Why overpay just because you’re an overseas client? Not only do we have in-house gear, but we’re regulars at the local rental houses and get the best deals.
From one-man-band video journalists to full crews, our clients make the smart decision to avoid major travel expenses by hiring locally. Don’t forget – we speak English!!!
Our clients love that we’re true city insiders with all kinds of recommendations and ideas for great locations across the board. We’re also happy to scout and take photos!
Worried about keeping it all together in an unknown country? Don’t worry, we’ll keep the crew running efficiently and solve any surprise problems. Frankly, we expect the unexpected.
We love tough requests! From sourcing a cave-dwelling fortune teller to acquiring an interview with Spain’s top judge (who does NOT do interviews), we’ve done it all.
Need a ride? Our local fixers know the streets of their cities like the back of their hands. And frankly, you just don’t have time to get lost.
We are a Dallas, Texas-based production company and creative agency that films around the world. We’ve relied on production services and talent in over 30 countries and for more than 20 years, but this is the first time we’ve actually followed a production with a letter of referral. I’m glad we waited. It’s only fitting that Ben Dornan and Phillip Stark get our first glowing recommendation. They earned every bit of it, along with all our respect and friendship. The project was not only as smooth as could be; it was also a true pleasure. The passion and attention to detail shown by Phil and Ben was evident in every element of our production.
Director & Founder
Ben, Phillip, and the team always took the extra steps to make sure the results were not only good, but perfect. For us, that puts them well in the top tier of the many fine production companies we have worked with internationally.
Senior Producer / Director
Bruno White Entertainment
Phillip Stark distinguished himself by his enthusiasm for the production and ambition to coordinate and confirm shoot details despite the challenges of our very tight production schedule. He secured the filming logistics on two of our seven stories, talking to the contacts on behalf of us and gaining their trust and approval to allow us to film. Phillip not only charmed the contacts and confirmed the shoot details, but also filmed video and met with potential interviewees, then uploading the video to the Internet for us to review here in Canada… Phillip also fulfilled additional roles, assisting with speedy translations of insurance documents and Internet links;, researching crew transportation and hotel options; assisting in obtaining insurance policies and film permits; and researching backup story ideas. He did everything in the timeliest of manners.
Associate Producer, Megaworld
Discovery Channel Canada
We’re a UK-based production company and went to Spain to shoot a fashion video. We got to Madrid OK – but our gear was delayed! That’s when we called Stark C&C. Though it was late into the night, they sourced the gear we needed and delivered it right to the shoot location first thing in the morning. First class service. I’d definitely use them next time I’m shooting in Spain.
