History of Cinematography video & photographic editing & multimedia

Halyu­ci­na­tions Stu­dios was orig­i­nal­ly found­ed in 2001 as a qual­i­ty sup­pli­er of cin­e­matog­ra­phy and film pro­duc­tion edit­ing for dance school videos for dance teach­ers and pro­fes­sion­al per­for­mance groups.  From event based video & pho­to­graph­ic edit­ing the stu­dio has since expand­ed into oth­er com­mer­cial pho­tog­ra­phy, com­mer­cial video, event videog­ra­phy & multimedia.

Early Cinematography / Film production / Photography

In our ear­li­est days, we cre­at­ed doc­u­men­taries in Bellin­gen for Stamp­ing Ground, Australia’s largest men’s dance fes­ti­val. We filmed dance con­tests, audi­tions, press kits, and con­certs, then edit­ed the footage. We quick­ly gained a rep­u­ta­tion for exceed­ing our clients’ expec­ta­tions, which led to increased demand for oth­er, relat­ed services.

Among them, cre­at­ing films for small busi­ness­es, the­atre record­ing, school events, polit­i­cal cam­paigns and lob­by groups, through to wed­dings, med­ical train­ing and actors’ showreels. The busi­ness also began pro­duc­ing mul­ti­me­dia pre­sen­ta­tions on CDs and dvd cre­ation / dvd pre­sen­ta­tions, as well as offer­ing web video and pho­tog­ra­phy sup­port for polit­i­cal lob­by groups and psychologists.

This fur­ther grew into mul­ti­me­dia ser­vices for clients in a diverse range of indus­tries. We have also pro­vid­ed video record­ing and pho­tog­ra­phy ser­vices for legal and polit­i­cal pur­pos­es, wed­dings, fes­ti­vals, man­u­fac­tur­ing, and ser­vice indurstries.
