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 [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

Legal Aid WA: When Separating

When Alucinor began working on a DVD for Legal Aid WA in October 2011 it was commissioned as a 45 minute DVD, a mix of drama and documentary/informational pieces. It became a 77 minute DVD and web series that fortunately surpassed expectations and set a new standard for video-driven legal resources in Australia. Here’s how it all came together. Scriptwriting The scriptwriting process began with us having numerous meetings with the team from Legal Aid and immersing ourselves in the Family Law legal frameworks and processes. We needed a [...]
