3d CGI Hologram Of 2Pac Shakur Lives On.
Well, almost all of you have heard about the Hologram of 2pac this weekend. It’s all over the internet. If you wish to see it, just search on youtube “2 Pac hologram.” What most of you may not know is that it’s not actually taken from Video of 2pac. It looks to be made completely from a 3d model. Not unlike other CGI Humans, this looks to be the work of special effects artists and movie ones at that. I’ve heard names such as Digital Domain being thrown around as the company behind it. What gives it away is the beginning of the performance. It almost has a Mannequin like look to the face in close up even though it is animated and moving. The rest of the performance the head is being bobbed back forth and up and down in constant motion so you can’t get a clear look at it. The baggy pants and secondary animation from the clothing and chain necklace really help sell the effect though. Overall I would give it an A just for being a well done live performance special effect. The 2pac hologram will for sure live on.
