"I hired Rafa to work on the programme 'Nomad Chef' in Northern Spain for Discovery International. He is brilliant fixer and story researcher, with a strong documentary background. He is thorough and proactive and really goes the extra mile to support the crew at all stages of production. He's also a pleasure to work with and always offers solutions to potential challenges. I thoroughly recommend him if you're thinking of filming in Spain."
— Hannah Briggs, Producer/ Writer, Discovery Networks International, was Rafael's client
"We travelled from Australia to produce a global advertising campaign and Rafa was our Producer/Fixer in Madrid. Rafa is great to work with. He is detail oriented and had a great understanding of the brief, offering valuable suggestions throughout the process to help ensure the project ran smoothly. I was also impressed with the team. Of all 13 countries we filmed in, Spain was definitely a highlight thanks to Rafa and his crew! "
— Kim Ingles, Senior Producer, International Projects, 50 Kaliber Films, managed Rafael at Freelance
"The Bafta winning BBC project Mi Vida Loca heavily relied on the contributors and locations in Spain. Rafa was absolutely amazing in organising and supervising these in very different parts of Spain, before and during the shoot. Having Rafa on your team is like having a Swiss Army knife of options. I can't recommend him highly enough."
— Matthias Laeis, Director, managed Rafael at BBC
"We worked with Rafael on an episode of Who Do You Think You Are? for Shed Media. He assisted with part of the Spanish sector of our shoot. Rafael was very knowledgable and extremely committed to the task, he was a pleasure to work with and I would recommend him as a fixer. "
— Geraldine Mei Chia, Unit Manager, Shed Media Group, managed Rafael at Shed Media Group
