For years, Marco Tempest’s masterful blend of digital media and magic has enabled audiences to glimpse the future before technology gets there.
Adventurer, Scientist, Showman, Dreamer and Hero… There’s no one quite like Marco Tempest. His imaginative combination of computer-generated imagery, video, music and stagecraft with his unique vision of future life is creatively unique and unequalled within the performing arts.
No one else combines the incredible technical savvy with the showmanship, the physical skills and the charisma of Tempest. With all that talent, it’s amazing that he seems to enjoy poking fun at himself, and all those marvelous toys! Marco gets a kick out of bending reality around the edges. Is that image in the screen, or just in front of it?

Tristan Daley is currently a senior at Tisch School of the Arts as a Film Major and Psychology Minor. He has had valuable experience working as a Production Assistant, Boom Op, and Assistant Camera as a freshman for student films like “Ossetia,” “Rhonda’s Kitten,” and “Charlie.” While gaining experience on professional sets, he has also independently produced, and directed his own short films like “Lucid Love” and “Morning After.” Always looking for ways to be involved and learn about production, Tristan actively works as an editor as well as writes his own scripts. He is excited to learn more about producing and hopes he can bring the director’s vision to fruition.
Oliver Lanzenberg, a cinematographer based out of New York City, is a recent Film & Television graduate at New York University’s Tisch School of the Arts. Upon graduating, Oliver was 2011′s sole undergraduate recipient of the Volker Bahnemann Award for Cinematography presented by ARRI, inc.. Oliver’s passion for filmmaking was spurred at a very young age by way of frequent visits to film sets with his parents and other family friends who work in the industry. Oliver has lived, studied and worked in Los Angeles, California and Santa Fe, New Mexico prior to his move to the Northeast. Oliver has been shooting student and independent films consistently since his senior year of high school and is now more than ever a firm believer in the power of light manipulation as a story telling device. One shot at a time he hopes to make the world a better place.
