You tell the story!I will back you up.
I will work for you as
Producer, stringer, fixer in Central Asia, also as story and location scout, translator and planner
For television, radio and photography
Are you planning a media production in Central Asia, documentaries, reports or features for TV or radio? – Do you want to research a specific issue in the region as a photographer?
Then I will gladly be your contact, answer initial questions, support you during your preparation and accompany you, if desired, during the on-site production.
Good to know
The Central Asian countries are no simple path journalistically. My network covers the countries of Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan and Tajikistan very well. Uzbekistan and Turkmenistan are more difficult, but, under certain conditions, also feasible. You need one thing above all – time! – Therefore, please plan for a lead time of four to six months for larger productions.
For example, accreditations issued by the Ministries of Foreign Affairs (MFA) are essential for your work in Central Asian countries. – Just to give you an impression of how much time it might take to get temporary press cards issued for usually three months: The last time I was planning to go to Tajikistan in 2017, it took me more than four month to get the accreditation by the Tajik MFA and the journalist’s visa. In Kazakhstan the procedure to get only the accreditation takes officially two months, in Kyrgyzstan one month.
I will undertake and organize the following for you – any specific preparatory work you require can be discussed individually.
Planning and consulting
Researching stories and potential story angles
Advice on the selection of suitable locations
Coordination of shooting schedules
Transport and accommodation
Oral and written communication in English, German, Russian
Written briefing on contacts, appointments, costs etc.
Tight operational coordination
