ILLUXION: Illusions of Light.

Video production is a blend of art and technicality. 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.

Then 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 that is greater than the sum of its parts. We believer that when you bring teams of talented, creative people together you can't help but create something inspiring.


Pro Tip: It’s pronounced “il-luck-shun” and rhymes with “production”.
