The Mekong River has a special place in the hearts of the team at Fixer Film Asia. We have been actively facilitating shoots within the river basin since 1999. The Mekong River Basin is one of the most diverse biogeographic areas on earth which links all of the nations of mainland Southeast Asia (with the exception of Singapore) together.

Film Permits

Each nation within the Mekong Basin has its own film permit process, we have worked with all of them and can advise on the most efficient way to obtain permits based on your production’s requirements. You can see the individual requirements for each nation here:

Moving Crew and Kit Between Mekong Nations

We have worked on various multi-nation film shoots, where the crew travels directly from one Mekong nation to the next, filming the whole time. We have also arranged many ‘In transit film kit movements’ between Mekong nations.

For example, filming equipment that is required in Southern Laos arrives in Bangkok Airport Freight Terminal, the kit then travels overland to Laos and is crossed into Southern Laos by our team for a remote location shoot in the jungles of Southern Laos then exits Laos into Cambodia overland.

Direct overland movements like this can often save shoots considerable time and expense. Provide us with your production’s shoot objectives and we will be able to advise you on the most time and cost effective options available.

Film Permit Processing Costs

The complexity and work load of processing each permit varies depending upon the number of departments and parties involved and the complexity and scale of the shoot. Therefore it’s only possible to provide an accurate permit processing estimate once some details on the shoot specifics have been provided.

Feel free to send through some basic details on your shoot including: A brief description of the program with a rough filming schedule noting the filming locations and size of crew. With this information in hand we’re able to quickly obtain a permit processing estimation.
