In Israel & Palestine
Highlight Films provides fixer / stringer / producer production and coordination services for TV and video productions in Israel and Palestine.
Since 1998 we have provided fixer services to many photography, TV and video productions of BBC, Netflix, Channel 4, National Geographic, Discovery, History, PBS, ARTE, Showtime, Fox and many other broadcasters.
A fixer is a local coordinator, production manager, or field producer. Our fixers are highly experienced professionals. All are fluent in English and some speak additional languages: German, French, Russian, Arabic, Spanish and Japanese.
Why are we considered as the best fixer production services company in Israel and Palestine? - First and foremost, because the best fixers in Israel, the West Bank and Gaza are working with us...
The experience of more than 16 years of producing and providing production and location services in Israel & Palestine proves that this area never ceases to attract documentary filmmakers, feature film and other producers. Whether our customers are interested in the history of Christianity, Islam or Judaism, in any current affairs story including sport events or live concerts, or want to follow a story related to the complicated political reality of Israel and the Middle East or the fabulous art, culture or night life of Tel Aviv. We offer producers a wide range of services to facilitate an affordable production at the highest professional standard.
We often provide productions with a full package of services – from initial research to location scout (recce), coordination, filming and post production. In many cases, the director or producer are the only one traveling to Israel, while we are responsible for the professional crew and production staff. In other cases, we are working together with a visiting crew and provide them with any services they require here.
We have a coordinator, or fixer, running each production. The fixer is the local key person in the production. All our fixers / coordinators are very experienced in planning and producing documentary, corporate or commercial shoots. Before the filming begins, the coordinator / fixer will obtain all the necessary filming permits. While the fixer is with the crew in the filming locations, he or she is constantly in touch with the Tel Aviv office, providing them with news alerts, logistical assistance and online research work when needed. Highlight Films employs both Israeli and Palestinian fixers who are all experts in the field. An Israeli fixer always accompanies productions filming in Israel; a Palestinian fixer works with productions in the West bank or Gaza. Our fixers / coordinators were responsible for more than 50 films dealing with history, archaeology and religion, as well as for several documentary series and dozens of films dealing with current affairs, on both sides of the conflict.
