The aptly titled commercial was shot over the course of 3 days with director Rebeca Diaz and the team from Tesauro, Barcelona. Taking advantage of the beautiful fall light in New York, the exteriors were able to capture the kinetic energy of the city. Employing a small unit, we were able to take our actor onto the subway as well as shoot some 2nd unit shots around the city that didn’t involve the entire crew. The interiors were shot in Barcelona while the exteriors were shot entirely in Manhattan and Brooklyn.

Shot just a few, short weeks ago in Downtown Los Angeles and Lancaster, CA over two days, we were able to tick a few boxes off of the bucket list working with Lucasfilms, C3PO and R2D2. Wasa-Be-Tokyo and director Kaoru Haga allowed us the opportunity to help them on this commercial for the Japanese market for the new Toyota Prius plug-in hybrid.
This was shot with an Alexa and then colored at Company3.
TRS Brussels and director Benjamin Lacour tapped Fixer to produce this film for French/Belgian bank Crédit Agricole, featuring Belgian Olympic Team members (and twin brothers) Jonathan and Kevin Borlée. Shot in Austin, TX in mid March, we timed our shoot to the development of the crops. Also needing a pine forest, we took advantage of the diversity of the locations surrounding this amazing city.
Home to filmmakers such as Terrance Malick and Robert Rodriguez, Austin has a long history as a film location. There is a deep pool of crew and plenty of equipment to choose from. For this film, we needed to get the camera up high to show off the epic locations while also moving swiftly across bumpy grounds. Along with DoP Patrick Otten, we decided to use the 73’ Hydroscope mounted on the Ultra Maverick from Chapman Leonard. This proved to be a wise choice as we were never limited in our camera positions.
Director Bram Coppens of Caviar directs this commercial for Draft FCB- San Francisco and Dockers. Shot over 4 days in the great state of California, many locations doubled for different cities around the globe. Where else can one find London, Berlin, Buenos Aires, Kyoto, the Alps and the beach all within a 600km radius? Downtown LA stood in for London, Buenos Aires, and Berlin, Mammoth Lakes did its best Alps impression, Long Beach’s Japanese Garden did a nice job playing Japan, while Malibu played itself.
Using an Arri Alexa and a Giraffe crane, this films production eclipsed its small budget to deliver results that have been recognized by shots, agency spy, and others.
