TV Filming Logistics

Victor has successfully served TV crews doing various documentaries, particularly wildlife documentaries. These would be documentaries, or another type of filming, in the areas of Victor’s expertise – nature, culture, food, and adventure travel – and taking place in the places that Victor knows well: Southeast Asia, western China, Malta, and Libya. In these subjects and these areas, Victor can be the consultant-at-large: he can assist in the design of filming itself, in the research and fact-checking, in designing the itinerary, in finding people that could be interviewed on camera, and in arranging all the logistics (permits, transport, food, props, and people). In other words, he can be a one-point fixer for all your needs.    

 

In the last TV documentary that he worked on, Victor took UK wildlife celebrity Nigel Marven and his team to a remote mountain ridge more than 3,000 metres high to film the elusive takin, a shaggy animal that lives in high-altitude mountain grasslands in the eastern Himalayas. Takins are endangered animals – they are most numerous in Bhutan, where takins hold the title of ‘National Animal’ – and Victor took the crew to an area where a large herd of takins occurs in west China. Victor arranged everything for the crew: filming permits, itinerary planning & design, and arrangement of all logistics (transport, accommodation, food, porters, and so on).

 

     

 

This is what Nigel Marven said: “We contacted Victor in the last minute, and he could have easily told us to sod off after presenting him with such tight deadlines, but instead he worked hard and enthusiastically to arrange everything for the trip – we love Victor for this.”
