‘Last Light’ is the story of Los Angeles bearing the brunt of a tempest and the clarity that comes after the storm. See Los Angeles in rare form. I spent the better part of two years trying to link together a continuity of weather and light, which proved to be by far the most challenging films I have done to date. For those of you who have lived in Los Angeles, you know that rain, for the most part, is few and far between. Fueled by recent storms, I was able to capture the city in a seldom seen light; torrential rain and dark stormy skies.

Colin followed up his PACIFIC STAR series with his TRILOGY OF LIGHT series which seeks to provide “an understanding of what it is to live amongst each other and to understand the system and order of a city, the seemingly complex organics that make it up and the life form that the city truly is.”
The Los Angeles Times, described TRILOGY OF LIGHT by explaining that Colin “reveals patterns imperceptible to the naked eye: the intricate signatures of planes circling high above Los Angeles International Airport, light splashing against the faces of buildings, clouds tumbling in the sky, cars flowing through the freeways like platelets in a pulsing vein.” TRILOGY OF LIGHT has been viewed by more than 10,000,000 people worldwide.
