Video production services in Russia
Alyona is one of the best APs I have worked with. Alyona was my Assistant Producer on a Series I made for Discovery channel “I want a House Abroad” (Mir Reality). She had to translate to me in English and then pass my instructions onto the Russian Presenter crew and Contributors. Her work ethic is second to none. We had to work to a tight schedule under pressure, and as a team we all delivered. I would have no hesitation in hiring her again as my AP.

I have sent crew all over the world, and for filming in Russia I’ve found that crews request Alyona. She’s thorough and professional to work with, giving me (from my office in North America) the confidence that everything is well in hand.
Leanne Brennan, Producer, Breakthrough TV
In a word, Alyona was fantastic, and I absolutely recommend working with her if you are planning a shoot in Russia.Throughout 6 weeks pre-production in Moscow, followed by a 2 week shoot in Siberia, Alyona Pimanova worked single-handedly as our local Fixer and Coordinator in Russia.
“Tough Trains: Siberia” required a lot of preparatory work setting things up prior to the shoot, and Alyona worked extremely hard to make sure that all the necessary arrangements had been made and permits granted. Alyona also has excellent research skills, and I soon came to rely on her implicitly in this regard. In addition, Alyona is brilliant at building good working relationships with contributors; all of ours quickly warmed to her genuine friendliness and enthusiasm. On the shoot, in particular, Alyona was also a great asset – a safe pair of hands getting things done, as well as a popular member of the team who was invaluable in keeping crew morale high throughout the shoot.

I had the joy of Munro's professionalism on a recent shoot in Moscow and would have no hesitation in recommending Alyona as a combined Fixer/Translator/Producer/AP. She has a top work ethic, a can-do attitude, and an intimate knowledge of filming in what can be a pretty tough place. From the constant translation, to organising kit, locations and contributors (with a keen eye on editorial) it was a pleasure working with her; if only she’d been around on my previous trip to Russia.
James Gurden, Producer/Director
Munro Productions assisted us in the production of the 44th episode of “Angry Planet” - shooting in the wilds of far eastern Siberia in the winter of 2015. Alyona and Dan were invaluable in the setup and preparation of the show, helping find the scientists and others we profiled in the episode, and organizing the complex travel and logistics for the shoot in this remote part of Russia. Alyona proved herself to be an excellent fixer, translator and associate producer. She also appeared in our film, translating and guiding our host, George Kourounis. I highly recommend Alyona, Dan and Munro Productions to anyone looking for a fixer to assist with a film shoot in Russia.
Peter Rowe, Producer - “Angry Planet”
Hi Alyona and Dan, I wanted to reach out personally and thank you for the tremendous job you both did on the ground and in the field for us in Siberia and Moscow. Alyona, thank you for being such a good friend and thorough guide to our crew. Looking forward to returning to Russia and working with you again.
