This is our backyard! The Asia Film Fixers team lives, loves and works in Asia, and is made-up of both expatriate and local talent. Our local staff and freelancers are experienced, committed and multilingual.
Our Management Team
Born in Sydney, Australia, and brought up in Wellington, New Zealand, Terry learnt how to manage the needs of TV and production crews when he was the public relations coordinator for the Royal Australian Air Force aerobatic team, ‘The Roulettes’. His fourteen years in the Air Force gave him a sound background in people and operations management.
Terry moved to Asia in 2005 and since then has been organizing group journeys through Vietnam, Thailand, Laos, Cambodia, China and Japan. When not fixing, Terry takes contract work in remote places. In 2010 Terry spent six months in Kabul, Afghanistan as an Operations manager for Supreme Group, and most recently with the Exxon-Mobil LNG project in Port Moresby, Papua New Guinea.
Terry has extensive experience managing overland / cross-border shoots for small and large unit productions, having worked with countless TV stations and film crews from around the world. He has an Executive Masters in Business Administration (EMBA) from RMIT University.

Our Country Managers
We hire locally based specialist production staff for each of our locations.
For each country Asia Film Fixers operate in, we have an experienced production manager providing ‘on the ground’ support to our clients and productions. In each country we have ‘bricks and mortar’ office space for administration, meetings and planning required for each production.
With the convenience of having our own office space, we can provide your production with meeting and storage space to relax during pre-production and during each shoot.
