BRANDED STORYTELLING WITH THE INDEPENDENT LIVING CENTRE, WA

The Independent Living Centre of WA teamed up with us to produce four online videos, one corporate and three of the branded storytelling variety. The ILC’s mission is to guide people’s choices to access assistive technology and services for independence and well being. They do this by providing information and advice as well as consultation, assessment, prescription, therapy, funding, hire, respite, training and support services. Our brief in a nutshell was to produce authentic stories that showcased a variety of customers including older people and people living with a [...]

Linkwest: Models For Sustainability, corporate videos

Following our work with Linkwest on the Beyond Gambling documentary Linkwest had us back to produce this three part resource for community based organistations and not-for-profits exploring alternative organisational structures that could provide a more sustainable future. Each video was shot in one day with a two person crew with a few additional pick up shoots. Filmed in Pingelly, Fremantle and Morley, WA. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AWa2E1U7jm4 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D6NiHy3mKuQ https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oqYRoaVKrGQ BEHIND THE SCENES https://www.instagram.com/p/BFWRtWrkVm3/?taken-by=alucinor_productions https://www.instagram.com/p/BFWSMN6kVoJ/?taken-by=alucinor_productions https://www.instagram.com/p/BF07RbUEVik/?taken-by=alucinor_productions https://www.instagram.com/p/BF07lVcEVjL/?taken-by=alucinor_productions https://www.instagram.com/p/BF07zqiEVjk/?taken-by=alucinor_productions https://www.instagram.com/p/BGaltOkEVtN/?taken-by=alucinor_productions https://www.instagram.com/p/BGtRV36kVj-/?taken-by=alucinor_productions https://www.instagram.com/p/BGtSHLUEVlA/?taken-by=alucinor_productions     A camera: Red Scarlet B camera: Sony A7s Lighting: Kino [...]

Beyond Gambling: Short WA made documentary with Linkwest

When I think about problem gambling or gambling addiction or when I have thought about it in the past I’ve never really thought of it as a big issue in Perth or in WA. Mainly because I’ve always kind of associated that with pokie machines and we don't have those everywhere (in Western Australia). They’re restricted to just the one casino in Perth city at Crown Casino. Gambling is never really anything I’ve done or been interested in outside of a few scratchy’s that have been given to me [...]

Branded Storytelling Video Production: Perth Home Care — AVIVO Rebrand

In late 2015 we began work in partnership with LinkLetters to produce six short films for Perth Home Care Services re-brand to an as of yet unknown (to us) brand. With Linkletters leading a complete rebrand we delved into our full branded storytelling process to plan and craft both genuine and moving customer stories. It was wonderful working with Avivo and Linkletters who both completely appreciate the power of storytelling with video (especially when they have such enthusiastic and appreciative customers happy to share their stories). We shot the majority of the six [...]

Mini-documentary personal storytelling continues with Disability Services Commission WA

We missed sharing this one back in June. A mini-doc sharing Ben's remarkable recovery with help from the NDIS My Way trial in the Lower South West. This was one of our first projects shooting on both the Sony A7s and the Red Scarlet. Shane, Dan and myself had a great experience working with producer/interviewer Kirsty Lawson in Margaret River for the shoot. Ben's story is really inspiring in itself, so we were really just trying to capture that rather than impose anything. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HX4zZpCFrGM A few behind the scenes [...]

Perth Home Care Corporate Videos

Following the positive industry feedback from our first production with Perth Home Care Services (watch here) we were lucky to be asked back in late 2014 for another corporate video / documentary. This time focussing on the stories of seven people and families whom are benefitting from individualised disability funding. Our involvement in the project was pretty late in the game. Just before filming we found ourselves promptly booking flights and flying to Geraldton, then filming back in Perth in the ensuing days. We didn't have time to put [...]

Perth Home Care Services – Stories of Self Direction

We produced these videos in mid 2014. They're a good example of the kind of work Alucinor Productions does when we have very little involvement in pre-production, have a bit of information - who, what, where, why etc and make the most of our time shooting. In some ways that's worked out really well on this project although there's definitely a few things that could be improved to get some more diversity of footage as well as footage that would connect even tighter with what's being discussed. Shane and [...]

WA NDIS My Way Personal Stories

We had three days to shoot four mini-documentary stories throughout Western Australia's South West destined to be screened at the My Way Launch in July of this year (I'm a bit late in writing this blog). Despite rigorous scheduling it required multiple relatively short shoots each day, think on your feet filming and spending around half of each day in the car traveling between Busselton, Dunsborough, Margaret River, Cowaramup and Augusta. My view at My Way launch Minister Helen Morton It was a frantic and [...]

Alzheimer’s Australia: The Unspoken Impact of Dementia

From Campaign Brief: Local video production boutique, Alucinor Productions, recently helped Alzheimer's Australia produce a video behind their social media effort to promote Dementia Awareness Month during September. The video is aimed at boosting awareness amongst Australians about dementia, and has received over 21,000 views over the duration of Dementia Awareness Month. In a mini-documentary format, the video follows the experiences of three people who are currently living with dementia and gives insights into some of the challenging aspects of this disease. Video co-creator Stephen Burge from Alucinor Productions [...]

Director and Actor: Passions, Process and Intimacy with Dalip Sondhi

I caught up with Dalip Sondhi to chat about our experience making the documentary, now being distributed by Contemporary Arts Media. (Get it here) Dalip discusses: Authenticity, the process of creativity, the actors job (to give lots of ideas...), critiquing ideas not the person, the shackles of being over prepared, the effect of the camera in the space, the actors ego and quite a bit more. The chat goes for about 13 minutes. But if you're interested in drama process, theatre, acting or directing, or the documentary for that [...]
