Who We Are

Swixer is a global full production service company that helps international clients with their Film, TV, Digital and Event productions. Our headquarters are located in Stockholm, Sweden with local offices and branches all across the world. 

In each country we have local Producers, Fixers and production managers who can help tailor and manage international shoots and events of all sizes in one or several countries. We have a solution-oriented and flexible mindset that we bring to every production, no matter the size.  

Swixer is proud to have been a part of productions for some of the leading agencies, production companies and brands in the world, such as: Apple TV, BBC, Microsoft, Volvo, Netflix, Bloomberg, CNN, Google, ESPN and more.

Our Network

Whatever the size of your production or your budget, Swixer will find solutions to help you tell your story. We know the value of working with a trustworthy, knowledgeable, and experienced crew when filming far away from home. That’s why we’ve built up a network of the most talented and reliable people in the industry – no matter the country or position.

Many of our clients see us as a ‘one stop shop’ rather than going to say five different service companies if they are shooting in several different countries. This intersection of talent, local insight and industry knowledge is the core strength of our work and what we are most proud of at Swixer!

Swixer’s Backstory

Swixer started with our founder and CEO Fatima Lagerås and has grown into something we’re so proud of. It all started in 2012 when Fatima received a request from Morgan Freeman’s production company Revelations Entertainment. They had found her CV online and needed local support for an upcoming documentary shoot for National Geographic in Stockholm. Back then Fatima worked as a freelance reporter, producer and director. At the time, the Swedish market didn’t really offer “Fixers,” and in fact, despite being experienced in the industry, Fatima hadn’t even heard the term before (at least not in a journalistic / production context). To her, a “Fixer” was someone who could fix a broken TV or washing machine perhaps. And all of a sudden, she found herself to be “The Swedish Fixer” and serving this fun crew from LA in her hometown Stockholm.  

The crew needed someone on the ground who could be their eyes and ears. Someone who could help them plan the shoot by securing permits and releases, booking interviews, translating and being present during the shoot to help with anything that came up. Fatima figured they probably weren’t the only ones who needed help shooting in Sweden. There had to be other international crews out there, right? And boom, just like that, a new production service company was born: The Swedish Fixer, or “Swixer”! 

Since then, we’ve been able to provide crew, locations, logistics, casting, management, equipment, talent, event staff etc to hundreds of international productions all across the world: TV shows, global commercials, livestream studio shows as well as branded corporate shoots and events. It’s all been possible thanks to our employees and our network of freelancers we’ve built up throughout the years. We’re on an exciting expanding adventure and can’t wait to see what the future holds. Thanks to Morgan Freeman!

“Swixer helped us set up a remote shoot for a livestream 5 camera studio show with live-to-tape, presentation, and online Q&A in Stockholm while we were in the UK. It was helpful to have Erin as our eyes and ears on set managing the production and talent the way we would have, had we been able to travel. From finding a studio and managing crew, helping us work within budget, and making sure our talent were taken care of, we knew we were in good hands with Swixer overseeing our project.”

“Our US-based company contracted with Swixer to fully organize and execute a local shoot in Stockholm, since none of our team was able to fly in, due to the pandemic. In interviewing multiple candidates for the project, I was continually impressed with Fatima and her whole team. Their responsiveness, professionalism, and attention to detail were extremely helpful in navigating the foreign shoot locale, and in providing on-the-ground support throughout. The team members she hired for the project were first-rate, everyone was solution-oriented, and our own US-based team was able to remote in seamlessly on the day. Swixer will certainly be our first call for any projects in the future.”

“Our shoot in Copenhagen was a massive success, everyone was so pleased. We were all slightly in awe of Christophe and the rest of the Danish crew – what a brilliant bunch of people. We were so happy to work and collaborate with them. Christophe went above and beyond and I just hope he enjoyed the experience also, it was full on some of the days, but we couldn’t be any happier.”

“Swixer provided our entire local crew (Director, DoP, Sound Recordist, Fixer and PA). Everyone was lovely and really went the extra mile in making sure the COVID-19 protocols were followed on top of rolling with the punches and delivering a great episode. I can’t thank SWIXER enough and look forward to working together again!”

“We worked with SWIXER’s crew earlier this year and it is a pleasure to provide a reference. In the lead up to our arrival they were very clear in their communications and made me feel very at ease. They completely understood the brief and made sure that everything was organized and in order before our arrival. I felt in very good hands. On set, Fatima is not only a pleasure to work with, she is extremely professional. The crew she engaged were also easy to work with and helped us run a smooth operation…”
