Tolbran is a VCR era vidder and fan writer. Her vids appeared at conventions such as Escapade, Revelcon and Sharecon. In the mid 1990s she released a songtape collection that included: "Pros, S/H, Kieffer/Lou Diamond Phillips, one QL, one MV" according to Sandy Herrold's post to the Virgule-L mailing list (quoted with permission).

Her vids won several vid show awards. In the 2000s, she volunteered in various capacities at the Connexions convention.

She is notable because of the inclusion of one of her vids in the Escapade Vid Show Retrospective 1992-2001, organized by Kandy Fong. Her 'Pros' vid, with the song You Can't Hurry Love by The Supremes, was made in 1994.

Starsky & Hutch vids

In 2000, Flamingo posted the following review of "I Remember LA" to the Vidder mailing list. It is reposted here with permission: "Yes, [I Remember LA] was strictly from Hutch's POV, and this vid works on every level. In the first place, it is about Hutch not being Hutch anymore, (as in Starsky and...) but having a different career in a different place, being essentially *someone else*, so the use of extra source material was very appropriate (there would been *no way* to do this terrific vid using just source material from SH), and the clip use was masterful. The subject matter and the way it was handled totally knocked me out the first time I saw it (I believe Zcon 97?) While SH fans are notorious for not wanting to see the guys separated, I don't know an SH fan who doesn't like the vid because of the way it was done (they may find it too sad for repeated viewings). It is also extremely rare in that it is a *sad* SH vid, almost unique in that. (The vid proposes the guys are separated for good.) It is one of my absolutely favorite vids of all time, and probably more responsible for me doing vids than anything else. (Yet, I'm not ready to try my hand at anything "serious" yet. Plain chicken, I guess.)"
