AVIVO GEORGE AND PENNY'S STORY https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=22O1DxlbGQ4 Avivo recently had us back for another customer story. (Thanks Avivo!!! Especially Sonali for her insight, help and passion for this project and people) After pre-interviews via video link this one took us up to Geraldton WA to spend a couple days with the George, Penny and the avivo team. Our Zeiss glass was away getting serviced so this was shot entirely on Sigma Art Zooms and a couple Tokina 11-16mm ultra wides. GEAR: Red Scarlet-W Red [...]

St John Ambulance: VR First Aid Skills Launch Video

ST JOHN AMBULANCE WA VR First Aid Skills Launch Video It was great to be a part of the launch for St John Ambulance's revolutionary VR and App First Aid Skills experience. Tasked with producing a video that would highlight what the product offered as well as introducing it to the public, we collaborated with the team at St John to come up with a concept in which the talent would be shown to interact in the real world and the virtual world. To achieve [...]

Branded Storytelling with Vicinity Centres in Perth and Melbourne

2017 has seen us commence collaborating with Vicinity Centres on a variety of branded storytelling video production projects in both Perth and Melbourne. From successes in social procurement to the beginnings of a solar revolution we had the pleasure of discovering and telling some pretty neat stories. You can check a few of them out below. Shot on the Red Scarlet-MX, Red Scarlet-w and Sony A7s (Ronin MX shots). Zeiss ZF Primes and Sigma 18 - 35 Art. Edited and Graded in Adobe Premiere Pro with FilmConvert [...]

BRANDED STORYTELLING WITH THE INDEPENDENT LIVING CENTRE, WA

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 [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]

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 [...]
