What We Do
Oman Fixer is a part of Diligence Trading LLC, a company started by brothers Sami and Jassim Allawati in 2012. Head of production Jassim Allawati, spent 12 years working in the UK Film and TV industry, working on top level productions with high profile directors and talent, David Hasslehoff, Idris Elba and Penelope Cruz to name a few.
Having worked extensively with the BBC, Sky, CNBC, ITV, c4, Discovery Channel and National Geographic as a sound recordist, drone operator and fixer, he has a wide ranging experience “from the floor” that he brings to his productions.
Sami, although from a law background, has written and directed a number of films over the years with award winning Arabic language “Hismanak amaanak” (buckle up for life) public safety film being a stand out.
With fresh ideas rooted in tradition and heritage, Diligence is blazing the trail by both fixing and facilitating large European TV productions in the sultanate as well as producing engaging content aimed at the Western world. Helping put Oman on the map as a top tourist destination.
Our most recent work was a BBC Natural History Bluechip production filming in the central and southern parts of the country.
