"Eric (AsiaFixer.TV) helped us set up a complex shoot with Dame Judi Dench that involved an incredibly tight schedule essentially filming two films in the space for one. It involved filming natural history, on Islands, in jungles, along an inaccessible river, in a bat cave, in two wildlife sanctuaries and high in the canopy in a tree higher than Nelson’s Column. It went extremely smoothly. Need I say more."

"Another great experience with Scubazoo as location fixers and underwater camera. A sensitive subject was dealt with with huge patience and incredible support for the British crew. The logistics were well organised, the boat drivers fantastic and the underwater sequences a massive achievement"

"私たちが野生のオランウータンの撮影に挑んだのは、遙か一億年も続く熱帯雨林、ダナムバレイ森林保護区です。この森の明け方の感動は例えようもありません。霧に包まれ林立する70mもの巨木の厳かな姿。時の流れと共に変化し響き渡る、虫、鳥、テナガザルの美しい鳴き声。何度でも訪れたい、地球が生きていることを実感できるかけがえのない場所です。"

"We have done our filming of wild orangutans in the Danum Valley Conservation Area, a rainforest that survives for more than 100 million years.The dawn of this forest is incredibly beautiful. Lots of giant trees more than 70m tall in a forest surrounded by fog. Sounds and echoes of insects, birds and gibbons that change drastically with the flow of time.This is a precious place that you want to visit all over again and feel that the earth is alive."
