What We Do

We accept any tasks regarding pre-productions and arrangement for productions, including:  talents, crew, equipment, locations, logistics, set constructions, studio hire, filming permits, catering, beds, food, travels, and transportation. These tasks will be administered by DFS fixer (producer, or PM).

We can accept project if; 

  • You do not have any fixer in Japan yet and are looking for a person or team to do comprehensive production tasks in the Japanese side. 

We cannot if; 

  • You already have a fixer in Japan.  Not a few production companies contact DFS and ask “remaining” production tasks like equipment rental, van/driver hire, and arrangement of supportive crew like gaffer, grip or sound. Please ask these tasks to your fixer. If your fixer cannot arrange these basics, do not hire him/her.
