Fixing Experience is the symbiosis of a multidisciplinary and professional team putting its skills at your service. All the members of Fixing Experience have a rich and varied background, but above all a shared passion for Ecuador. They will put a lot of energy into bringing your audiovisual project to fruition. Depending on your needs, one or other of our collaborators will work with you. Until we get to know them in the flesh, here's a summary of their profiles.

Xavier Amigo

Fixer, setter, interpreter, translator, photographer, diver and passionate naturalist, he has accompanied a large number of photographic reports and filming projects for numerous international productions. A connoisseur of the South American continent and its birdlife in particular, he will be able to advise and support you before, during and after the production, thanks to his experience and informed vision of the country where he has lived for 30 years.

Dorian Noël

As a biologist and scientific illustrator, he knows the country very well, especially its natural and scientific aspects. He has illustrated and painted numerous species for various journals, magazines and scientific dissemination projects, and is particularly fond of fish. His long field experience in the Amazon makes him an invaluable asset when preparing your filming project in these special environments.

Pierre Ferron

Trained as an Arts et Métiers engineer and a jack-of-all-trades, resourceful and agile, he meticulously manages projects to bring them to fruition. But he's also a man of the field: scuba diver, rock climber, nature photographer, he loves action and will guide you to the country's best spots, on land and in the water.

Wilson Raura

Wilson, aka the king of the steering wheel, knows the country like the back of his hand. He's traveled it in all directions and in all climates, in minibuses and 4x4s to drive scientists, film crews, fragile equipment and musicians, with whom he's developed a very close relationship. Ask him to get out his trumpet and you'll see.

Sebastian Diaz

Sebastian is Ecuadorian, but studied in France. A perfect French speaker, he is also a member of a theater company. So he knows the imperatives of good organization. Sebas will be in charge of all the operational aspects of your project, organizing all the logistical details necessary for its smooth running. He's also a connoisseur of ancestral local culture.
