Texas by Light is, more than anything, an exercise in relying on a team to make it all come together.  We had many people help out and one in particular is Mark Clark and The Lighting Zone

We had a pretty amazing shoot in Austin at Moore’s Crossing Bridge. This is reportedly a haunted bridge. We thought this would be a great spot to do some of the Projection light painting and we had this crazy-cool massive white silk that Maggie Poorman loaned us for just this type of occasion. The problem was how to rig and power the projector.

Enter The Lighting Zone….Mark provided us with the critical gear we needed to mount our projector safely in the field and also a great ultra-quiet Honda generator for power. These items are nothing compared to the massive inventory of Production and Lighting gear Mark regularly provides his clients. “Your success is our success” is the motto at The Lighting Zone. Mark made our production a success.

The Lighting Zone Inc. offers lighting and grip equipment for sale and rent. Houston based, TLZ is owned and operated by industry professionals with more than 30 years of set experience including: motion pictures, television series, video production and still photography assignments.

SWAMP Supports Texas by Light

We are thrilled to announce the Southwest Alternate Media Project (SWAMP) has committed their support for Texas by Light!

SWAMP has generously agreed to serve as a fiscal sponsor, helping bring to fruition this epic tour of Texas featuring the light painting of Marko93, interactive projection technology and Mehdi Idir’s urban production sensibilities.

Fueled by the success of Paris by Light, a love for light painting and a collaborative spirit, Texas by Light promises a look at the Lone Star State like you’ve never seen it before.

Texas by Light is part documentary, part cinema, part experimental and all about dynamically documenting light, human motion, and digital interactivity. Scheduled to shoot in Houston, Dallas, Austin, San Antonio and Paris, Texas, Texas by Light will combine photography, performance and media technology to turn the visual iconography of Texas into a futuristic and interactive light painting experience.

Visually stunning, emotionally compelling and totally original, Texas by Light promises to be larger than Texas itself.

SWAMP is a Texas-based media arts center committed to the film and video art of this region, the artists producing independent images, and to the cultivation of an engaged audience. SWAMP supports the tradition of artists who express their visions through film, video and new media.

We thank our friends at SWAMP for sharing our vision and supporting this important project. Special thanks to SWAMP Executive Director Mary Lampe and Board Member Jim Barham for their incredible support.
