Brambilla’s “Evolution (Multiplex),� a stereoscopic 3D video collage culled from thousands of movies, was called one of the most eye-opening events of the festival.

“Marco brought us in to produce the entire event from the site survey and coordinating content to providing crew, accommodations and local truss,� says Billy Kneissl of Big Show. “I spoke to every rental and staging house in Miami but no one could do what we needed to get Marco’s video on the screen.
