Back in 2018, we worked with Innovative Immersions from the US on video production for NBC Sports and the University of Notre Dame. While Michael Cloonan, the President and the founder of Innovative Immersions worked as the Field Director for the project, we became were the local production team.
This particular film was covering a part of Moosa’s Madrasa Discourses project, a revolutionary concept that brings together scholars from traditional Islamic schools known as madrasas to enhance and improve the curricula taught at these institutions. In this part, 55 recent madrasa graduates who engage with Moosa and other faculty from Notre Dame, Jamia Milia Islamia in New Delhi of India, and GIFT University in Gujranwala of Pakistan met to discuss along with selected Notre Dame undergraduates, largely peace studies students who are mostly female.
During the project duration, we used to wake up early in the morning to get a good shot from various angles. We also had to readjust much of the schedules due to the weather condition and fully handled the shoot as well as logistics and the permits.

Some of the inexperienced and independent fixers in Nepal do not have good networks with concerned authorities such as the (Ministry of Information & Communication, Home Ministry, Tourism Board, Defense Ministry, Aviation Board, Airports) for acquiring permissions and managing all aspects while handling international film productions.
Most fixers also lack the simplest of matters such as knowledge of acquiring permits, renting equipment, transportation services, and logistics matters, government protocols, and national rules and regulations.
While filming in Nepal there are various problems and issues which need to be managed in advance and also being in production and filming in Nepal in general. In order to manage all aspects and sort out all issues related to filming in Nepal a strong fixer must have a large network and should be well connected.

Top 5 Tips While Hiring Experienced Fixer in Nepal
Check the Fixer’s International Portfolio: There are lots of film production companies and independent film fixer service providers in Nepal. So, whenever hiring a fixer in Nepal, please ask for all the legal and necessary details and working experience in a particular field.
Also make sure that you interview them in terms of knowledge in the filming sector considering all aspects such as location knowledge, technical knowledge, legal knowledge, rules & regulations, permit knowledge, logistical knowledge, and language expertise. Your fixer will be the eyes and ears for you in Nepal considering the pre-production phase, and at the research phase, it is crucial to know that your fixer can deliver and has full knowledge regarding your filming project in Nepal.
Rules & Regulations: After assessing your requirements, the fixer should immediately come up with the perfect plan of action for your filming project in Nepal.
Not only that, but he/she should be fully equipped with relevant knowledge considering all aspects such as locations that are forbidden to film on to which permits are required for which locations. Similarly, they should know the land topography and should be expert managers for transportation services as well.
Due to unmanaged road conditions, sometimes reaching the destinations with dozens of film crew members is challenging, and carrying bulky filming equipment is one hell of a hard job. So, it’s better to affiliate with an experienced fixer who has knowledge on all the legal parts of filming in Nepal considering (Rules & Regulations).
Strong Network: Foreign filmmakers have to completely trust their local fixer for their filming project in Nepal in consideration of the (Pre-Production) stage. It is crucial that your fixer has a strong network in order to fulfill all your production requirements but that is solely based on how strong the fixers network is in terms of delivering fixer services to you in Nepal.
Being connected and interlinked to relevant government officials and also having all matters sorted on production can be challenging for most under experienced fixers but if your fixer has a strong network then he/she will be very likely to solve any problem which comes in your way while filming in Nepal.
Fixers should also have a very good network to visa offices, and relevant ministries in order to be prepared to provide services to foreign filmmakers. Likewise, he/she must have technical knowledge of filming equipment, location information logistics, hotels, flights, and local transportation according to your production requirements.
References: References are the key to having a successful filming production in Nepal, sounds basic but this is one of the most important factors you need to consider while filming in Nepal.
Asking for references and conversing with the previous clientele of the fixer is very important considering being able to predict the type of service which will be provided by the fixer in Nepal.
Nepal Film Production recommends that you ask the fixer’s reference on the overall experience of working with that particular fixer in order to know the quality of service and mostly the speed of work initiated by the fixer.
The reason behind it is that most of the filming companies in Nepal that provide fixers, don’t actually have international filming experience in Nepal, and randomly add the client’s details, most recommendations and references aren’t legitimate.
So, no matter how big or small, new or old the film production company is, always ask for the references.

Getting The Permits:
You can apply for filming permits from the Ministry of Information and Communication.
