PHILOSOPHY

 

Established in 1999, Foreground Media is a collection of digital professionals focused on producing creative commercial video, primarily for the Web and Broadcast. Communication is changing more rapidly than ever. We are all inundated with content, both online and in the real world. This content needs to be innovative, tasteful and entertaining, or else it simply won't get consumed.

GAVIN EMMANUEL

 

Gavin Emmanuel is the Creative Director and Founder of Foreground Media. He is also the single point of contact throughout the production process. This makes things a lot easier when you're trying to convey a brand, message and feeling through a medium with so many elements.  Consistency and efficiency is best achieved through a direct line of communication.

TEAMWORK

 

Filmmaking is a collaborative process. Be it for Youtube, your company website, or even the silver screen, fluid communication is essential in order to achieve the best result. We constantly strive to make this process simpler and more intuitive. We take care of all the logistics, providing you with a clear-cut, step-by-step process and quality options along the way.

THE MODEL

 

Our production model is lean, mobile and flexible. The process and team applied to each project is personlised to that project's needs. Production overheads are trimmed down to only what's necessary. Our freelance model allows everyone involved to share the same goal of the best possible final product.

NETWORK

 

Camera operators, sound engineers, script writers, actors, actresses, voiceover talent, composers, production managers, just to name a few. We are all part of the same family of story-tellers. Foreground Media is the frontage for an ever-expanding network of creative talent. With a diverse range of people and skills on demand, we believe the best ideas should win.

TECHNOLOGY

 

Let's face it, in terms of media there is very little left that isn't digital. We dedicate a healthy portion of our time keeping up to speed with tech changes. Although technology by itself doesn't make anyone more creative or proficient, it certainly helps to deliver a better product to our clients, both on time and budget.
