TALCO provides a one-stop shop for all aspects of lighting and grip combined. We start with a base-package of equipment, tools, and expendables. We have active working relationships with the major rental houses and can sub-rent generators, electrical distrobution, HMI, and larger equipment on an as-needed basis. We have a lot of specialty gear, rigging, and custom tools to accomplish things many productions never even dreamed possible on their budgets. Our flexibility and resourcefulness allows a production to go places and film things in ways they never imagined possible.
Vancouver loses one of its finest spirited filmmakers in writer, director Geoff Browne of Boundless Light, known around town for his Tibetan documentary, Kall it Karma. He has moved to Los Angeles to pursue directorial projects on feature length productions. He may be gone for now, but his name, along with TALCO, will be appearing soon on a 2-month shoot produced by Academy Award winning documentary filmmaker Malcom Clarke. Look for this highly controversial feature length docu-drama to be released within the next year making headlines big time. TALCO is pleased to have participated in 6 weeks of interviews followed by 2 weeks of big budget reconstructions which will bring this terrifying story to life. In the mean while, you’ll have to see Malcom’s recently Oscar nominated, Prisoners of Paradise — or perhaps even more intense his 1985 exploration of American Vietnam vets hiding from a society in which they are no longer fit to coexist with, Soldiers in Hiding. As for us, we are happy to have had an opportunity to work with filmmakers of such high caliber and for an extended period of time. Thanks as well to Barna Alper from Toronto for organizing, producing, and distributing this very interesting production.We look forward to working on many more amazing documentaries and we wish Geoff Browne great success abroad until we may next work with him again.
