Robbert Bruijs – Dutch TV Producer
I work in whole Latin America, in not all of the countries I have fixers so good to know! Yes Rodrigo is a very good fixer, I understands completely what journalists/filmcrews needs and he speaks a lot of languages. He is also the perfect brigde because as a Brazilian he traveled a lot, knows different cultures and he is intetested in new cultures. He is also very honest and its a plesure to work with him.
Nina Jurna – Dutch Correspondent NRC Handelsblad in Brazil. Journalist and TV Producer
As a correspondent I have worked with Rodrigo Braz Vieira on several reports for Dutch television and have come to know him as a resourceful, well-connected and hard-working producer. He is very knowledgeable about what plays in all strata of Brazilian society, speaks his languages (even Dutch!) and is fun to be around. Since he is an interesting person in his own right, I also did a story about him! I highly recommend him.
Max Westerman – Dutch Journalist
I have worked with Rodrigo as a location fixer/producer in Brazil/Argentina two times in the past. I am an Editor in Chief/Director making mostly travelshows for Dutch TV and have worked with many fixers before. Rodrigo is a very nice person to work with. He is open in his communication, understands fast what you’re looking for and always delivers what he’s promised. He knows his way around! Would definitely work with him in the future!
Andrea Pleijte – Dutch TV Producer
I have worked with Rodrigo twice - he fixed two photoshoots for me in Brazil, for the Sunday Times Travel magazine and Wanderlust. Rodrigo's work was first class. He was reliable, prompt and excellent value, and he found just what I needed. I would not hesitate to recommend him
Alex Robinson – British Photographer and Writer
He was amazing! He was so knowledgable and fluent in multiple languages, and his laid-back vibe was calming and excellent. Very impressed by his knowledge of Rio, and all his fantastic tips.

Working with Rodrigo and Bira was a big pleasant! In the pre-production I worked with Rodrigo, who totally understand what we need for the program! He came with amazing ideas, and locations. Bira was an amazing fixer on location, good ideas, punctual, flexible and a really nice and sweet person to work with. I really can recommend these fixers for tv shows in Brasil, it was a party to work with them, and they showed us brasil in the real way!
