Optik Allusions is a radical film collective dedicated to social change, based in Oakland, California.

We make media that challenge the dominant culture. We tell stories that otherwise might remain untold. We express our alternative views of the world, have fun doing it, and welcome everyone to do so, regardless of prior experience. We learn by doing. We share resources, skills and knowledge to support eachother's creative endeavours. We make films in a spirit of collaboration, inclusivity and solidarity, supply a lending library of film equipment for creative projects, organize free, at cost or donation-based workshops, and host film screenings. We also steward a room dedicated to media post production at the Omni Commons. If you like to make videos and/ or become a member, come to our tuesday meetings! We're open and always happy to welcome new members.
