Tran started dabbling in AV in his early teens, volunteering to help out at local area concerts and youth groups. This soon lead to contracted opportunity with companies like, Westbury National Show Systems and Crocodile Productions at the Molson Amphitheater, which quickly turned this one-time hobby into a passion and full time career choice. After moving to Nashville for a couple years, touring and becoming a sought after Lighting Designer, Tran moved back to Canada to launch, Soundbox Productions, with life-long friend, Jamie Altena. Fifteen years later, Tran is still at it quarterbacking all Production Operations for Soundbox, which includes departments in all areas of the industry, including audio, lighting, video, staging and installation.
Notebooks by Tran:

In order to properly light a subject on a stage, we must first familiarize ourselves with the tools at our disposal by breaking down all the unique control attributes associated with Leko’s, Fresnel and Pars, while providing you a closer look at each fixture.
This notebook demonstrates how to properly light an entire stage using the three-point lighting techniques, while teaching you how to break your stage down in to zones, helping you accomplish the smoothest wash effects possible.
