Locations Manager, Surveys & Fixer

The Port Douglas & the Daintree is a popular location for feature films and television productions. The Pacific, Thin Red Line, Fool's Gold and other feature films and television shows were shot in this region. Australian and International television commercials are also regularly filmed here.

Are you a production company looking for location management, services & crew?

Contact Stephen Nutt to discuss your film or television project for the Port Douglas Daintree region. He can arrange transport, catering, provide accommodation options & a schedule for the best times of the day to shoot.


I was contacted by the international film company Metropolis Films to work with them as the Locations Producer on a campaign to be filmed in and around Port Douglas and the Daintree. My experience as a cameraman and having the 'local knowledge' was required.

Because of my local knowledge I was able to provide the script writer with a range of locations that would work with their concept. My location survey images gave their director the ideas and an achievable shooting schedule was formed.

The family and crew travelled to various locations around Port Douglas & the Daintree. The magical bonds of this family was transferred to the campaign by simply letting them be themselves and enjoy their Port Douglas Daintree experience.

After editing and the campaign launch in Uruguay I received some feedback from the director.

"Hi Stephen, here's the link (below) for our production in Port Douglas. Thank you very much for your incredible work. Greetings to Reuben & Cathy, great work!"

Sports Illustrated editors contacted me to work as the Locations Producer on their Swimwear Edition production to be filmed in and around Cairns and Tropical North Queensland.

A stills photographer with assistants, video crews, hair, makeup and magazine staff flew out from New York for this project. Four models including Kate Upton were used. Here is a short interview I did with the Cairns Post about my role when the magazine came out:
