BEHIND THE SCENES

OUR STORY

Inception

At Visual Suspect core, you find Gwendoline & Yiannis Biliris, the creative forces and founders. The unconventional inception of the company takes place in 2014, away from the expected grounds with the beginning of operations through a long travel across 4 continents. Getting inspired by the various cultures, working on small scale commercials and interviewing people along the way for a feature documentary, were the first steps. The goal was about creating films people love to watch.

Today

The production house is specialized in cinematic commercials, corporate videos and creative viral films. With clients spread across up to 17 countries and the operation core in Hong Kong, Visual Suspect works with high end customers, mainly in HK and Asia Pacific. In parallel, non commercial side projects go viral on internet with half a million plays, nominated and awarded in international film festivals, while techniques of filming are featured in key video and photography industry websites and magazines.

Gwendoline & Yiannis Biliris

Yiannis is the eye behind each frame – Film Director & Fine Art Photographer from Greece, he has over 18 years of professional experience in video industry and has been involved during 6 continuous years as a core member in documentary series production team, winning extensive awards in international festivals. Gwendoline is the bird eye view of the company and executive producer – coming from Landscape Architecture, she gained experience in managing multidisciplinary teams often based in various countries, working on long term and high end projects. Today she ensures projects are running well on track together with the overall operation of the production house.

Sizes of production

With modular production system, several awarded short films are made by Yiannis and his assistants only, while the team is able to scale up to about 25 people, and more if necessary, for producing cinematic commercials.

In short: with swift adjustment, the aim is to be great rather than big.

Filming Technology

Hats and rabbits are composed of robotic vehicles, high end drones, cinematic standard cameras recording in 4 to 8K, 360 virtual reality 3D cameras filming in 8K, as a base. During post-production, advanced colour grading techniques shape colours of films, together with tracking techniques to add or remove objects in motion pictures. Filming in formats allowing to get great amount of information during shootings, the finishing process has the power to retouch each single pixel shot.
