Filming in Rio de Janeiro.
Rio de Janeiro is one of the most known cities in the world. Filmmakers come from all over the world after its famous beaches like Ipanema and Copacabana.
They also come after its many unspoiled beaches, the Favelas and it’s local communities, the Carnival, Tijuca National Park, the Funk Carioca, and much more. But what really makes Rio de Janeiro special it is the unique culture, which is unlike any other in the world.
Filming in Rio has its challenges. To film in the National Parks it is important to get permits from the park managers – each park is run by a different government agency – so the bureaucracy can seem overwhelming. But Fixer Brazil can help you over the many red tapes. We have a local team of locations managers and producers that will get things done.
Fixer Brazil has helped many production companies to shoot in Rio de Janeiro, working with a local crew and providing the best logistic to film. From the urban Favelas to remote underwater shoots. We have local expertise to work with safety at the favelas and specialized people who know each corner of the “wonderful city”.
Fixer Brazil worked with Lonelyleap for the Google My Business films “Favela Brass” and “Hand Talk” . The five Americans from Lonelyleap joined FixerBrazil’s team that included the fixer, location manager, art director, drivers, first camera assistant, catering, for six days of production.
Fixer Brazil worked with Eyeforce and produced this video for KLM shoot in Rio.
When coming to Brazil to film we recommend that you bring all your gear as accompanied baggage with you in the same flight and declare them to the Customs (Receita Federal) as temporary admission of equipment or you can also use the ATA Carnet.
Rio de Janeiro and São Paulo are the entrances for most of the foreign crews that come to film in Brazil. We also work with customs brokers in Antônio Carlos Jobim International Airport, in Rio, and GRU Airport in São Paulo. Depending on the amount of equipment imported, we will partner companies to get all the gear on time to film.

Check what other producers have to say about us:
Renato Falzoni from 10e20 Filmes is an excellent fixer with in depth knowledge of the country. He is organised, determined and has a great ‘can do’ attitude. He was able to open doors that I thought were double padlocked, and quickly. I can highly recommend him.
Paul Reddish, Director
Free Spirit Film
“Brazil – A Natural History” is a 5 part series produced by Terra Mater Factual Studios for National Geographic.
10e20 Filmes was our partner in Brazil and they provided all the administrative and logistical support to produce this blue chip series. 10e20 Filmes proved to be a reliable partner with a passion for film making. On our next projects in Brazil I will certainly work with them again and I can recommend that you do the same, you will not be disappointed.
