It was the summer of 2004, two sun tanned mates were driving back to Adelaide after having been for a classic surf near the idyllic coastal town of Port Elliot in South Australia. The surfing session ended as per usual with a purchase at the local Port Elliot bakery. As Grant 'Pucker' and Adam 'Zilldog' drove back to Adelaide, pie with sauce in hand and iced coffee between the legs, next to them sat the trusty JVC tape camcorder, full of 8mm video tape with the latest memories captured from the recent surf session. With a gulp of iced coffee, they began to throw around a few names for Grant's "yet to be born" Video Production business. At that time the trusty blue Toyota Corolla, nicknamed 'Falkor', was coasting past the dairy cows and towards the town of Mount Compass. They began juggling with the word 'Compass' and the idea of what a compass actually is and how it provides direction and is one of the most important tools for navigation and visual representation. Then it was decided, with the last bite of the pie, the organic beginning of Compass Digital Media.
Now with 15 years of TV broadcast production experience and having worked with a diverse range of major brands and networks, those humble beginnings of filming his mates riding the waves has allowed Director and award winning Cinematographer Grant Puckridge, to bring his own passionate wave of experience and creativity to the world of online Digital Video Production.
