The Atlantic Studios Co-operative (ASCO), established in 2004, provides
    professional motion picture and television productions in Newfoundland and
    Labrador with the best lighting and grip equipment available.

    In the past, the cost of bringing production equipment to Newfoundland and
    Labrador strained production budgets and acted as a deterrent to producer's
    otherwise attracted to the region. The additional cost of transport, and fuel
    charges made Newfoundland and Labrador an expensive location. Those
    days are over!

    ASCO's inventory provides an array of film and television lighting including
    HMI & Tungsten, Kino-Flos, Grip Equipment, Car Mounts, Dolly Track, a
    Giraffe Classic Crane with a 32ft extension, housed in its own travel trailer,
    complete with 50 Feet of Filmair track; and two 10 ton tandem axle trucks,
    complete with belly bins and hydraulic lift gates, one outfitted as a grip
    truck, the other as a generator truck with 1200 amp 3- phase 120/208
    volt crystal sync output.

    ASCO's professional service oriented staff ensures that all production needs
    can be met. Our close working relationship with other equipment houses in
    eastern Canada, enables us to supplement inventory in order to facilitate
    more specialized requirements.

    ASCO is able to link producers to potential studio locations in St. John's, and
    Corner Brook, or to the National Research Council's WaveTank in St. John's.

    ASCO is a non-profit Co-operative with producers and technicians as members.
    Profits over expenses are reinvested in the Co-op to renew and maintain
