County Fair Production (Tea Collection)
Project Overview

Tea Collection

Working with many American production team in the past, County Fair Production is a San Francisco/NYC based production company, producing a photoshoot in Kathmandu for American kid’s clothing brand Tea Collection ( in mid April 2019.

Tea was initiating a project in Nepal on sharing the Nepalese culture with their brand. It was about the friendship and the bond between friends that makes a change. This project is all about how Tea believes in making friends and sharing it to the world. It was a seven days project full of excitement and thrill. The tight schedule was a challenge to the producer and the entire crew. Travelling to different locations of the valley in a short period of time was stressing. But this was a challenge well played. The teamwork from the entire crew and the cast members helped accomplish the production.

In conclusion, the production was a success and there was another story to tell.

Our Approach

The primary goal of this production was to finalize the production design within a short period of time.

The primary goal of this production was to finalize the production design within a short period of time. Finalising all the location and casting was a challenge. Stephen wanted us to be clear on the instructions provided. The two crew members were traveling earlier for the charity shoot with the Little Sisters Fund. We had to get the custom clearance done and complete the production before all the crew arrived. The schedule was planned ahead but changes were made according to the suitability of the client and overall time schedule. He wanted us to get to the location on time with precise planning. As we were working with children, safety was number one priority. Setting up base near location was a different approach we applied this time.

Couple of challenges we faced was the weather, as the weather can be unpredictable in the valley. Weather forecasts usually don’t work in the valleys. Being a fixer in Nepal being prepared for these situations is a must. We prepare for the worst and plan accordingly with options and alternatives. As a fixer in Nepal, it not only requires us to be smart and intuitive but also familiar to the multiple cultures and customs of the different societies living in.

Being a multilingual, multi-ethnic and multi-religious country, it requires the fixer in nepal to be familiar with a large group of people. Translation work is also part of the job where it requires the fixer to understand the culture and interpret the meaning and the values of a certain group of people.

Another important part of a fixer comes where not only interpreting the language skillfully but also the culture and norms of people living in various parts of the country. For example, certain artifacts and gestures resembles a different meaning when interpreted. Nepal represents as a harmony where different religions stand together where people often get confused on which it represents. This is also part of the Himalayan Fixer to properly interpret and translate the meaning of the society.
