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 [...]

WA Country Health Service: Corporate Video Production

WA Country Health Service "WACHS" enlisted our services to create two three to five minute corporate documentary videos. However to protect the identity of the main characters, scripts were written based off interviews with real people and actors were cast in their place (with names changed). WACHS had already heavily developed the scripts before we came on board. Before prepping the shoots Shane and I just spent some time collaborating with WACHS editing the scripts without making an overhaul. These were after all based on real peoples experiences and [...]

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 [...]

Legal Aid WA: MyCar TVC

Late in 2012 we were commissioned by Legal Aid WA to make a few online advertisements targeting financial and legal issues facing predominantly young first time car buyers. The result was three TV commercial's destined for Legal Aid's new MyCar website. We were tight on budget so my wife Mariza, Shane and writer Stephen Burge himself stepped in front of the camera with me behind it. I edited the videos to a strict 30 second format; Voice over by Glenn Hall of Just Improvise fame. The two outdoor shoots [...]
