Our management team:
Born in Sydney, Australia, and growing up in Wellington, New Zealand, Terry learnt how to work with and manage the needs of TV and production crews when he was the public relations coordinator for the Royal Australian Air Force aerobatic team, ‘The Roulettes’. His fourteen years in the Air Force has given him a sound background in people and operations management.
Terry moved to Asia in 2005 and has spent the past 12 years organizing and leading small group journeys through Vietnam, Thailand, Laos, Cambodia, China and Japan. When not fixing, Terry takes contract work in remote places – In 2010 Terry spent six months in Kabul, Afghanistan as an Operations manager for Supreme Group, and most recently with the Exxon-Mobil LNG project in Port Moresby, Papua New Guinea.
Terry has experience managing the needs of small and large unit productions. Terry has worked with Channel Seven Australia’s Sunday Night; Channel Nine’s Getaway and 60 Minutes; Roving Enterprises: Before the game and 7pm Project; Network Ten’s Good morning Australia, Sports Tonight and V8 Supercar productions; Channel Nine’s The AFL Footy Show and Wide World of Sport; Creative Media’s Luke Nguyen’s Cooking Series 2 & 4; The ABC’s ‘Sleek Geeks’ with Adam Spencer and Dr Karl, Cream Productions’ Wild Things with Dominic Monaghan & Modern Television’s (UK) journey to Burma with Griff Rhys Jones; Travel Channels Expedition Unknown with Josh Gates; as well as numerous documentary, film, television and sporting personalities – Australian film legend and hollywood star Jack Thompson, Australian Olympic swimmer and TV presenter Nicole Stevenson, Winter Olympic Gold Medalist Alisa Camplin, Formula 1 driver David Coulthard, AFL footballer Jason Akermanis, Supercar racing legends Greg Murphy and Jason Bargwanna, and Australian comedians Col Elliot, the late Lucky Grills, David Hughes and Julian Schiller. Most recently, Terry was the lead fixer for BBC Top Gear Special Myanmar (Burma).
Terry also has extensive experience managing travel and tour operations, specialising in unique and tailor-made itineraries throughout Vietnam, Cambodia, Thailand, Laos and Myanmar.
Amanda’s work, interests, life and personality inevitably led her to Asia Film Fixers. Her great-grandfather was Don Lee, the man that Mount Lee – where the Hollywood sign sits – is named after. She has also lived an exotic life: Born in Tripoli, Libya and schooled in Hong Kong, where her enduring love of Asia began, she gained a journalism degree in Sydney and has since worked in marketing in LA, Thailand, Brazil, Hong Kong and Australia.
After eight years with 20th Century Fox in Australia, Amanda has a great interest in all things entertainment. But more crucially, she knows the industry and how it works. During her time at Fox, she earned a broad and deep understanding of the immediacy and fluidity of the business – the day-to-day pressures of film production and marketing, revenue management and reporting, of managing major movie stars and major movie releases.
Amanda now lives in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam, where she met Asia Film Fixer founder and partner, Terry Gordon. This is a highly complementary partnership that now extends to a dynamic location management and film fixing offer across Asia.
