Kim Brame

Our leader of the pack - Kim is our main director.She 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 Kim 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.

Steve Brame

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 several years he's been with his wife's company, he's also developed skills as a shooter and technical editor.

Why Us?

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 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.

OUR TEAM

We have no employees.  We hire local and some not-so-local production crew members as needed for a job. That way, you aren't paying for salaries when the crew isn't actively working!

That being said, we do have a few crew members that we use religiously, depending on needs - some for over 17 years!

These are the main services we provide. Of course the list isn't complete. If it's even remotely related to video and multimedia production, we can probably handle it!

AWARDS

OUR PROCESS

Pre-production

The first step will be to develop the plan. Most likely you’ll already have an idea, or even an exact design for your project. We’ll help to ensure that this initial idea is maintained throughout the production, and doesn’t get lost. We never lose sight of the fact that it’s your project, not ours. We will have at least one pre-production meeting where all of the wrinkles will be ironed out, and production won’t begin until we get a green light. If professional talent is included, this is where they’ll be auditioned and picked. If professional voiceover is needed, we have a large pool of talent to choose from, and we’ll present you with many samples.

Production

Once everyone is satisfied with the plan developed during pre-production, it’s time to pull out all of the equipment and get to work. We can shoot on location, in our small studio, or if a larger studio is needed, we can obtain one. We prefer our client to be on set for the shoot, because you are part of the team - we value your input during this phase.

Post Production

This is where we take all of the media shot during production, and put it all together. You are welcome to sit in on the editing sessions, or we have an online solution for you to review and comment on daily progress.

Delivery

We can provide your finished project in many formats - online video, either for your own website, or for upload to YouTube. We’ll even help you set up your own YouTube channel, and assist with setting up your videos to play on your site. We can author DVD or Blu-ray discs, and output to pretty much any type of deliverable you could need. We can also provide the necessary formats for broadcast.
