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.
