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.
