It took months of planning, but only two minutes to set the field for the show.  The 160’x90′ projection surface spread out by over one hundred volunteer crew looked amazing with the video animation produced by The Famous Group.  Quince Imaging was a great partner on the project and provided all projection and playback equipment and crew.     It took a lot of planing by a lot of talented people to pull off this show.  Here are the production credits:
