location services

We have a large database of locations in The Netherlands and some in Belgium and Germany. Most locations come with a local contact, previous shooting experience, and personal connection. Think dykes, mills, historic city centres in major and small towns, museums, and of course all the typically Dutch stuff.

 

research

In our team, we have several freelance researchers to visit local archives, (pre-)interview, people. These are all research professionals with previous experience working for media companies. Trough our contacts at many institutions and archives we have easy access to an archive or research material located in the Netherlands.

local talent

We have a large network of media professionals, for organizing 2nd unit work, assembling a complete film crew to ENG-teams that can work together or independently from your own crew. With known and tested skills we will have a professional language correct team on standby in no time.

Travel & accomodation

We have several good contacts with both travel agencies and hotels. Crew and cast can have some specific needs and our local knowledge is a lot better than any hotel site out there. This means you get the local rate which is significantly less than booking through a travel website. Also, any special needs or requirements for food, security or storage are taken care off.

SHIPPING & TRANSPORT

Shipping any kind of material or equipment can be done through us. Fast, secure and insured as well as competitive rates make this easy. We also maintain good relationships with rental companies, so we always get the best rates for both equipment and transportation without any hassle of deposits or bonds.

 

PRODUCTION TEAM

We can assemble a production team for you suited to your needs, including turnkey offices with all modern amenities to on-site production offices in a trailer or van. We can staff any shoot or production, organize local castings and location scouts, arrange meetings with government officials or just make sure your crew keeps happy and productive.

time saving

Save on travel, permits, research and equipement. An experienced production team is ready to take care of you and your crew. Shooting abroad can be difficult, expensive and being far away from your tried and trusted network of connection can be a lonesome undertaking. Holland Fixer will be your local guide and beacon of information during pre-production. During your stay in West-Europe we can assist and guide you with our extensive network of local and national contacts. Even after you have left, you will have a link in place to take care of any (legal) issues that might arrive.

Experienced producer

Google is not a replacement for an experienced producer on the ground.
Finding the best locations, negotiating in native languages, prepping a production like a pro, making sure your cast and crew have a fantastic experience during your stay, these are all things an experienced producer can add to your project.

Advantages

A great creative and operational advantage is created by understanding each other’s background and learning how to cope with local and foreign customs and relations For over 20 years we have worked with almost all nationalities and cultures. We have visited many places and in return, we have shown the best Western Europe can offer in terms of talent, beauty, and creativity. We hope you find what you are looking for.

Who are you?

Holland Fixer is part of RenderRebels. At RenderRebels we create our own projects for all our Dutch clients.

We have been working for journalist and foreign production companies for years. 

Who do you work for?

We serve cast and crews from all over the world. Many of our team speaks more than one foreign language. English, Spanish, German, Italian, French, Chinese and Arabian are some of the languages we have spoken on past shoots.

What is a 'fixer' anyways?

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 Holland Fixer, a fixer is anyone involved in the materialisation of a media project.
