The term “fixer” originated in journalism. Correspondents in an unfamiliar location would hire a fixer to help with various aspects of their assignment, such as logistics, translation, planning, transportation and accommodation.

Today, a fixer offers support at every stage of a production, whether in the news, film or television industry. At FILMS.SOLUTIONS, a fixer is someone involved in the materialization of a film or Television project. Would you like to know more?
