The Peachy Keen Colour team colour graded this observational documentary TV series Adventure Gold Diggers for Fredbird Entertainment.

This show follows a cast of five adventurous, thrill-seeking prospecting and mining teams. Venture alongside them as they brave the unforgiving landscapes of Australia’s remote and untamed regions in pursuit of the ultimate treasure: gold. Daring dives into icy Tasmanian rapids, audacious descents down abandoned mineshafts in Victoria, and skilfully manoeuvring heavy machinery in the scorching heart of North Queensland, there are no limits to how far these Adventure Gold Diggers will go to strike it rich.

The colour grade for the show differed slightly by scenes.  Desert scenes were graded warm and gritty, cave and mine scenes were neutral and cooler, while the scenes shot in the Tasmanian bush featured brighter saturated greens and strong blacks with warm skin tones.  Overall the blacks were graded strong and punchy.  The close up shots of the gold were accentuated in the grade – increasing the yellow saturation and vignetted.

Adventure Gold Diggers was broadcast in Australia on 7mate, on TVNZ in New Zealand, and in multiple countries around the world including the UK, Germany and other Northern European countries.

Another TV series colour graded by the Peachy Keen Colour team for Fredbird Entertainment is Mt Hutt Rescue.  Check out the trailer here.  The Peachy team who graded Adventure Gold Diggers season 1 & season 2 was made up of Angela Cerasi (who also supervised all episode grades), along with Emily Reid and Alex Aitken.
