What's In A Name

TALUS 
(noun)  - ta·​lus | /ˈtāləs/ - a slope formed especially by an accumulation of rock debris
 
A talus field or slope is a geological feature you might encounter while summiting a mountain - a rock field. The trail tends to disappear in these sections, and you're left to navigate your own way through.

For us, this parallels how we each as humans walk our own paths through life. Each with a unique story to tell.

Our chosen method for creative storytelling is film.
