I am an experienced American-Swiss trilingual  (English, German, French) freelance fixer covering Germany, Switzerland and France from my base in Berlin.  I provide production service support to documentaries, reality tv shows, commercials, corporate videos, web content productions and photo shoots for major international broadcasters and corporate clients. 

Since 2000, I have secured over 500 locations for productions in nearly every region of Germany, French- and German-speaking Switzerland and France.  I am originally from New York where I began my career as a Location Assistant on the NBC TV series, LAW AND ORDER.

International crews rely on me for all their production services support in:

  1. location scouting and clearance

  2. securing shooting permits

  3. drone filming

  4. production scheduling, budgeting and logistics

  5. hiring excellent local crews

  6. renting equipment, often at a discount

  7. renting and driving production vehicles

  8. booking hotels

  9. translating

  10. securing props, actors, costumes and studios for recreations

  11. field producing

  12. research

  13. identifying and contacting interviewees

Client Testimonials

“Gabrielle’s work was invaluable for our shoot in Germany.  We were very impressed with her thoughtfulness and thoroughness – and extremely rapid follow-up on multiple aspects of the production prior to our arrival, including late changes to locations that we knew would be problematic, but still, Gabrielle was able to provide us with several options.

Gabrielle assisted with location scouting and permissions, permits for filming on public transport, vehicle hire and the appointment of a driver.  It was terrific to have everything in order before our crew arrived, and then any creative adjustments could be made.  During the shoot she was flexible and attentive to changing conditions and plans, and she provided all necessary permits and documents we needed for accountability upon completion of the shoot.  It’s been a great experience working with Gabrielle and we hope to do so again soon.”

“My deepest thanks … for the effort and extra special attention to detail. ..You were unflappable in the face of the many hurdles placed before you. You came through on every front to deliver us people to interview and places to access. Your research and keen eye for what matters in our story truly helped us achieve what might have proved to be unachievable…Of course, I hope and expect we will have future opportunities to work together. This has been a great experience and I look forward to singing your praises to people who might be looking to venture out to Germany and France for a shoot. ”
