We've fixed/hosted TV shows for: Travel Channel “Bizarre Foods,” Discovery TV "Nightline," National Geographic “Taboo”, Food Network "World's Weirdest Restaurants," CBS “The Doctors,” NBC “Today Show,” CNN, NHK "Kawaii TV", Canal Plus, Pro Sieben, Norway TV and more. See our video clips

What we can do

- Japan is notoriously difficult to access and film. As local production coordinators (fixers), we’ll take care of shooting permits, language, logistics, local casting and negotiations.

- La Carmina is a colorful TV host, author of 3 books, and popular blogger. As an on-camera guide, she can conduct interviews and speak knowledgably about Japan, fashion, travel & trends.

- We’ll reach out to famous designers, artists, bands and fashionistas to be in your project.

- We provide insight into underground cultures and trends. As insiders, we have rare access into subcultures. Translating, connecting, coolhunting -- we do it all.

- We will promote your company to our large social network and blog audience worldwide. Details here.
