Our fixers working on Dark Tourist, Netflix

Our fixers in Russia and Kazakhstan help build up a complex filming of the launch of a Soyuz rocket.

Dark Tourist is a very interesting Netflix documentary series. It tells about the phenomenon of “dark tourism”. The locations and stories shown in this show are gorgeous. We are proud to say that our fixers were in charge of the episode filmed in Baikonur, Kazakhstan. FilmspbTV organized the visit of the host of the show to the launch of a Soyuz rocket to the ISS, as well as the filming of the lift off and erection of the rocket. Luckily our film crew got to the press conference given by the astronauts.

In episode 4 David Farrier travels through Kazakhstan to get to the place where most Russian rockets are launched to space – the cosmodrome Baikonur. FilmspbTV crew was in charge of the permit-getting procedure, logistics, accommodation and production support during the launch and the preparation.

Below you will find the trailer of the show. Watch the complete show on Netflix.
