Kevin Bilida, the owner and founder of TLC, had a vision of bringing high-energy excitement to events and his initial success with Music Unlimited touring multimedia shows expanded through the Pacific Northwest and became well known as the successful Talking Laser Company. TLC moved headquarters to the Los Angeles area and immediately became the top laser effects provider to the Hollywood film, TV and music video worlds, as well as bringing high-quality and high-technology laser entertainment to corporate events.
TLC’s expertise with laser effects in live events, and for the cameras, took the team to international attention, raising the bar in the ‘90’s and 2000’s, and enabling TLC’s expansion into all types of live special effects and creative production. Events, shows and exhibits from Vegas to Europe and the Caribbean, from India to Tokyo, TLC has a versatile slate of international business.
Today, TLC integrates new technologies and ideas into productions of all kinds.
