ROUNDUP: 2012

February 20, 2013

A list of our projects and other events that populated our 2012.


The biggest news for us in 2012 was undoubtedly our company name change.  In September, vMediaWorks cease to be and Local Fixers Asia was born.  For a list of our reasons, please read our dedicated article.

Below are the other headlines that made 2012 our most successful year yet!  Special thanks to all our clients.

December 2012

  • Wrapped: Finding Bigfoot.   The crew sure is happy to be finally out of the Vietnamese jungle!   Photos (not of a bigfoot, unfortunately, to come soon).
  • Wrapped: Locked Up Abroad.  Very busy shoot comes to an end with a gala at the White House.  Well, kind of..   we'll do a write-up soon, when time frees up! 

November 2012

  • Wrapped: our 3rd episode of Ultimate Warfare, this time featuring the WWII Battle of Okinawa.  We've updated our UW article here.
  • Hard at work on 2 big December projects for National Geographics and Animal Planet.  Stay tuned for more info soon.
  • We are now in the midst of working out deals with partners and suppliers down in Jakarta, hopefully in the aim of offering our full line of services in Indonesia in a few months' time.  Stay tuned for more info as it comes in.

May 2012

  • Wrapped: Pinoy Explorer, the number #1 travel show in The Philippines.  Great fun to work with these guys, and a joy to meet its host, legendary Filipino actor Aga Muhlach.  After seeing him trying to play ice hockey, we think he should stick with his day job...
