We Solve The 'Inhousing' vs. Outsourcing; Dilemma. FlexSourcing™ Gives You The Best of Both.
Using our proprietary in-house platform, we create teams of specialists – handpicked from our global creative community, shaped around your requirements.
Everyone is onboarded into your brand – and trained in the &FRIENDS Way. Giving you ‘plug-in’ teams – in all the right places – which you simply switch on whenever, wherever you need.
Flexsource™ The Team Around Each Brief
A camera team in Milan next week? Tick. A full production department in Malaysia next month? You got it.
With FlexSourcing™ you can adapt your resource throughout the year – fielding the right specialists for each particular project, when and where you need it – selected from your wider ‘squad’ of friends.
You only pay for people you need, versus shelling out for offices full of people you don’t know.
The budget you’ll save on creative can then be applied where it’s most effective – in media and distribution – ensuring audiences actually see your assets, and you deliver on the important KPI’s.
5 Reasons Why Friends Are Better
1. Strategy, planning, creative + production – all in-house.
2. Save budget on content creation, apply it where it counts.
3. Extension of your core team – right people, right place, right time… Every time.
4. FlexSource™ your bespoke team around the workflow – throughout the year.
5. Slash your carbon footprint – we have friends everywhere.
Think Like a Publisher
The key to engaging people is to give them what they actually want. Finding the sweet-spot between you and your audience (it’s why ‘influencers’ and Insta’ celebs do so well). No one knows this better than media owners – they literally wrote the book on cultivating and retaining audiences, long-term.
So we blend our journalistic pedigree with big agency thinking, sniffing out your brand stories that matter – turning them into beautiful, culturally relevant assets that resonate.
Refreshingly different from ‘shouty’ Old Advertising.
Production Company vs. Production Partner
What’s the difference?
Quite a lot. For starters we handle almost everything in house – including comms planning and brand strategy, ideation, production and post. We also take care of asset management, reversioning and translations for local markets – our senior in-house producers working shoulder-to-shoulder with you the whole way.
And like all good friends, we’re always available for advice and support – without you having to worry about ‘running the meter’. As a production partner or (as we like to consider ourselves) friend, we’re here for the long-haul – adding value, at every step. Think of us as your own, personal creative ‘concierge’.
