Filming Jangadeiros in Ceará for French Television Arte

Fixer Brazil was hired by the French Production Company Découpages to organize the production of the brazilian episode of the TV Series “Peoples of the Sea“. We went to “Prainha do Canto Verde” to film the “Jangadeiros” a type of traditional fisherman that fish with the Jangada raft.

We did a short making of video about the shoot and the wonderful trip.

Fixer Brazil did the research, preproduction, location scout/recce, customs clearance, visas, permits, and worked as a fixer during the week of shooting.

 

“It’s been a pleasure preparing this movie with FixerBrazil. Tomaz did a very great job. We will definitely recommend you to anyone who wishes to make a movie in Brazil.”  Diane Micouleau / Producer – Decoupages.fr

Filming in Rio de Janeiro – Fixer Brazil

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.

RioDeJaneiro1

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.

Favela_FixerBrazil1

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”.

favela2

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.

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.

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.

We really enjoyed working with Tomaz from FixerBrazil, and we quite literally couldn’t have done it without him.
I truly can’t thank the FixerBrazil team enough.

Filming in brazilian National Parks.

We were hired to work with the Eyeforce BV, a video production company from the Netherlands. They came to Brazil to shoot a kiteboarding documentary. So, they needed amazing places to film it. Places like Lençóis Maranhenses National Park.
ICMBio is the institute in Brazil responsible for giving permission for filming in the National Parks. Any foreign company needs to associate with a brazilian production company that will interface with ICMBio to get the permit in order to film in those remote areas.

We also helped them with logistics, security and permits to film in Rio de Janeiro. To film in Rio de Janeiro you need a permit from the Rio Film Commission.
