FIXER : Aquavision TV Productions https://www.photosofafrica.com/blog/2013/10/fixer-aquavision-tv-productions To Whom It May Concern

Please let this letter serve as a testimonial that Chris du Plessis worked as a fixer for me for an Australian TV crew that visited a South Africa. His knowledge of the area the Australian crew proposed to work in was paramount in order for the Australian crew to achieve their goals within their schedule. Chris organized everything from transport to, accommodation, to logistical planning of routes, scheduled working time and even down time as per the Australian work schedule. His friendly manner and time allocation was spot on. Chris is a great asset to any production and a fantastic person to have on the team.    

Thanks
