WHO ARE WE?
Our leader of the pack - Kim is our main director. Kim has a gift for putting people at ease in front of the camera so their message comes across as unrehearsed, confident and most importantly - sincere. This ability allows creative illusions to deliver real messaging from real people as easily as with paid talent. She has directed and produced; LIVE broadcast productions, webcasts, training and marketing tools and commercials both for TV & Internet. Her favorite movie of all time is 'The Wizard of Oz'. She collects all things related to the Wicked Witch of the West. We have no idea why.
With an IT background, Steve was the obvious choice to oversee the technical aspects of the company. The vast majority of our projects are produced for web delivery. That's Steve's main job as Rich Media Director - making sure it works. Originally joining the team to handle web development, the rapidly evolving landscape of digital video production offered many opportunities for skill set expansion. He's also charged with keeping the equipment maintained and up-to-date, having been accused of having a bad case of G.A.S. - Gear Acquisition Syndrome. During the many years he's been with his wife's company, he's also developed skills as a shooter and technical editor.
creative illusions started in Atlanta in the early 90’s providing set dressing as well as straight and special effects make-up to the film industry for projects such as ‘Robocop’ and ‘The Last of the Mohicans’. Working on large films, we saw an amazing amount of waste - mainly in time and personnel. We thought we could do it more efficiently. If we could put our finger on one single specialty that we have, it would be efficiency.
You will rarely, if ever, see a person on our crew who only performs one job - our people are Swiss Army Knives.
We are a professional full service High Def(HD) video production facility.
Have an idea for a video but don’t know how to get started? We’ll work with you to develop the right concepts and scripts within your budget that will ensure a smooth production path. Doing the right pre-production, such as creating storyboards and location scouting, can save you time and money down the road.
When you are ready to shoot, we can staff and equip any size job from a Hollywood-style production to a quick 2-man crew for an interview. We also have our own small boutique studio for extremely budget friendly production.
Whether it’s a corporate marketing video, training video, a local or national television commercial or a demo video for the web, our production department is equipped to handle all your video production needs.
Aside from the fact that we started in the 90’s to provide an alternative to the typical wasteful, inefficient production model -
there are other areas where we stand out.
We are extremely easy to work with! We love what we do, and you’ll see that when we’re working with you. We have a lot of fun, but in a ‘professional’ sort of way. We also dive into our client’s industry and world. We try to develop a great understanding of what you do, so that we can create a video that feels like you.
