Film Location Management / Fixing Services

I have 2 decades of experience in the broadcast industry, taking tv crews to the most difficult locations and making sure everything is planned for. I understand the different concerns a presenter, producer, director, DOP or soundman might have and plan for all their needs at pre-production stage.
Logistics is my speciality and with a strong local network, build up in 20 years living in Malaysia and Indonesia, I’m confident we are up to almost any challenge.

I’m providing full service fixing for the locations I’m considering my backyard, namely:

MALAYSIAN BORNEO - SABAH AND SARAWAK
PENINSULAR MALAYSIA
BRUNEI
INDONESIA

Here is what my clients have to say about working with me:
  • It was a genuine pleasure to spend time alongside Eric on the Guiness World Record for the Longest Underwater Cleanup, in Sabah. We were covering the event for a Discovery Channel Asia documentary and Eric assisted us with access and advice regarding our crew deployment, as well as always being willing (and articulate) to appear on camera at various intervals to aide the telling of our story. I was personally very impressed with the organisational and logistic skills displayed by Eric and his team throughout the entire 7 day event.

  • We used Eric and his team to help us on a shoot for National Geographic, filming sea turtles in Borneo, and I have to say we owe our success to them. From start to finish, every thing down to the smallest detail was planned out, accounted for and handled. From visas to transportation, accommodations to translations, and even guided dives on the reef, Eric and his team are professional perfectionists who will go out of their way to make sure your project is successful. They are the only group I will work with if I ever return to Malaysia; highly recommended.

  • Eric was our fixer for a shoot in Malaysia Borneo with British TV presenter Nick Baker. We were shooting on a very tight schedule. I strongly recommend Eric! From talent scouting, organizing all the logistics, to translating, to coming on the shoots with us and helping film and take photos, he was 100% dedicated to our project and getting the job done. Thank you to Eric and his team, we couldn't have done it without you and hope to work together in the future.

  • Eric is a highly talented underwater photographer with an immense knowledge of marine biology. His enthusiasm for his work is infectious. He works very hard without losing his great patience and charm, and is able to deliver a polished product on short deadlines. I highly recommend him to anyone taking an underwater photography expedition or anyone who wants to have a great diving companion as he jumps in as a guide and teacher.

  • Thank you for your great support for our Discovery Channel production, it all went so smoothly, you were super organised, responsible and reliable. Look forward to work with you again.

  • I hired Eric for a photographic project I was doing on the Sea Gypsies of Sabah. Eric was very easy to work with and went beyond expectations with regards to logistics, security and local help to cover locations and keep the shoot running smooth and safe. There were safety concerns due to kidnappings in the region and Eric made sure I was safe (with the help of his local contacts). I have worked with various fixers before in many other countries and I can defiantly recommend him and his team for their professionalism. I really could not have done the shoot in such a short time without his help

  • As a producer who has worked in challenging locations all over the world, Borneo, Malaysia has to be one of the most difficult to plan a shoot. We worked with fixer Eric Madeja and his production company, they handled our logistics down to the smallest detail. Eric and his team were extremely professional and covered every aspect of planning the travel, lodging, meals, diving and daily plans. Eric knows the local people, culture, diving, and wildlife as well as anyone. I strongly recommend him to any production company that plans to work in Malaysia.

  • We had the pleasure of working with Eric on multiple occasions over the last couple of years for wildlife documentary shoots – and he will be the first person I call the next time I find myself filming in Asia. I was highly impressed with his forward planning and attention to detail on the shoot logistics. Working in remote locations and humid environments can present challenging filming conditions in which things don’t always go quite to plan. Eric always seems to be several steps ahead and always has a plan. He is the safe pair of hands that you want to have with you on any shoot.
