Officially, Alucinor began in 2007 when founders Butler and Piggott were finishing off their double major in Film & Television and Scriptwriting. However, their creative partnership actually kicked off way back in the spring of 1999 making their very first VHS short film, SHOUT. We fell in love with the craft, cutting our teeth on VHS as kids at the end of the 90’s and early 2000’s.
Back then making “films” consisted of running around with Dean’s Dad’s camcorder and making up stories as we went along, only to later edit (roughly) by connecting two VCR’s together. Not easy but that’s how it all started and the passion for crafting videos began.
Today the Director/DP creative duo collaborates with global and local brands and agencies throughout Australia and Asia to create artistic, emotive and authentic films, with a focus on storytelling. Although our films (and audience) have changed greatly since those days, we still have the same goals on every production – to push ourselves to make the best work we can and to put our audience first. Striving to make entertaining video content that’s worthy of their engagement.
We put an immense amount of care and consideration into what we do because producing films that genuinely impact audiences is how we gain meaning and satisfaction in our working life.
