Why a Red Scarlet-w?

Why a Red Scarletw?   Over 4 years ago I wrote a blog about why we were purchasing a Scarlet-x digital cinema camera. A MASSIVE step up in performance and cost from our then current Canon 5D Mark ii. Well four and a half years since the purchase that camera is still our workhorse. 4k 24/25 fps and 3k 48 fps. We’ve shot everything under the sun with it – music clips, documentaries, shorts, green screen, TVC’s, even stills in 5k. We’ve yet to have an issue with the [...]

Amy Sugars – Halloween, music video out now

We had the pleasure of working with the very talented singer/songwriter Amy Sugars making the music video for her new single 'Halloween.'

GHS Solutions TV Advertisement

TVCs are certainly something Alucinor wants to do more of. Dean received a phone call from Kiya at Market Creations in early March advising they wanted to shoot a TV advertisement for the Geraldton based company GHS Solutions. A 2 person crew (Dean & I) would need to fly to Geraldton for a 1 day shoot. A script had been provided by Market Creations and we would need to shoot 3 members of the company delivering the lines from the script as well as a voice over for the [...]

Ocean & Earth TV Commercial

On what was undeniably a very challenging shoot we found ourselves contending with heat, dust, glaring sunlight, strong winds and filming around learners operating heavy machinery for this TVC (Scary!... But they were very careful of us and we kept a safe distance most of the time). Changing lenses was a tricky process, we were literally covered in red dust at the end of the shoot but all the gear held up beautifully. The advertisement, shot in the hills just outside of Perth was an exercise in little prep [...]
