James McLeanCreative Director, StoryInc

From our first creative discussion to the delivery of the final shot on Cleverman Season 2, our experience working with Dusk was outstanding. Dusk's creative team are incredibly detailed and innovative, with every shot exceeding expectations. The same goes for their Production team, who were very easy to communicate with and worked tirelessly to ensure our moving deadlines were met.
