Illusions of Light

Video production is a blend of art and technical engineering. The goal is to capture light on a 2D image sensor in such a way that it the resulting image looks and feels 3D. Essentially, it’s an illusion that moves the viewer into a new world.

Why the x? 'Lux' is Latin for 'light' and light is at the center of our work. We use light to sculpt the contours of products, illuminate actors, and create environments that help tell a story.  X is also a force-multiplier; a product greater than the sum of its parts. When you assemble teams of talented people you can't help but create something inspiring.

Pro tip: It’s pronounced 'il-luck-shun' and rhymes with 'production'.
