USING A CUSTOM ROASTING PROCESS

We are focussed on finding the core of ‘the idea’, producing premium visual content, marketing & strategy wrapped in creativity.
Crafting beautiful film to tell compelling stories is a tricky business, but over the years we have perfected the craft. Heres the process we typically follow.

1_the-roast

.
We start things off by taking your story in its simplest form and putting the heat on, discussing what you want to say, how you want to say it and who you’re talking to. We bounce ideas off you and each other, ensuring we have explored every potential avenue. This is the concept, script & pre-production phase.

.
The fineness of the grind strongly affects the final cup, and we’re experts at ensuring the perfect consistency for the press and brew. This is the shooting & design phase, capturing the most stunning imagery, designing highly compelling motion graphics and recording the cleanest sound possible.

.
Having carefully prepared the grind, we then give it the press & brew using the utmost precision to create work that envelops the senses. This is the edit & VFX period and time for you to view and critique the product, whittling down your short film to its purest form, ensuring everything is tasting just right.

.
This creates the final look & feel of the project, ensuring the presentation is sublime. The sound mix & colour grade are supremely important, this is their time to truly propel your project to the next level & a last chance for any refinement before you deliver to your audience & convert new customers.

"The FGC team are extremely knowledgeable about video production and the most effective way to engage our customers, they helped us to develop the script using the right language to convey our message to our clients in the best way possible. Very happy with the result!"

− Jesse Larsen, OptiFleet

"Absolutely nailed it! The Freshly Ground team spent a lot of time and effort getting to know our business and then developed the script using the right kind of language for our target market. They really do care about owning a project to ensure it's the best it can possibly be. True artists and businessmen. "

− David Maxwell, MD Eighth Wonder Travel

"James and the team came up with the concept for the SAANZ campaign in quick fashion under a tight deadline, not only did they nail the target market, they delivered a video with production values far higher than the budget we gave them would suggest."

− Mike Smith, Snow365
