Apparently it looked very realistic in person and on TV. So realistic that laser pointers seemed to terminate and reflect on to his body
What technology was used for this. People are already talking a Micheal Jackson tour with this technology. New or old?
suppose you're thinkin' about a plate o' shrimp. Suddenly someone'll say, like, plate, or shrimp, or plate o' shrimp out of the blue, no explanation. No point in lookin' for one, either. It's all part of a cosmic unconciousness.
Its just ole "Pepper's Ghost" done with a new, specialized, coated, stretched plastic film or films and good quality video projectors.
They use "Holographic" as a marketing gimick. It is not a hologram, its a reflection. Note the required EXTREMELY dark background.
The film probably comes from 3M, as does the controlled scattering film used to allow video projection on glass windows.
So old a technology, they are counting on marketing and gimmickry and a lack of education in entertainment to call it "New" again.
The retired Imagineers at Di$ney who reinvented it the sixties when it came from the 1860s must be LTAO.
Although the high tech plastic is world class material. Nice to see it looks like their using mutiple layers, courtesy of the pointer, that was a little detail that was puzzling me.
Thanks guys, I figured it wasnt a hologram which is why I put it in quotes. If you look at it from different angels (ie right stage or left stage you seem to see more of his sides) Is this how Di$ney makes their ghost "the secret way" in their haunted house?
I did notice the darker background than the others. For once, some idiot in the crowd with a laser pointer actually gave us something useful
whoever did the video editing did a good job, i notice the usage of covering his mouth with the microphone as making the mouth movement would have been very intensive. It still looked very good from my amateur eyes
How long before we get Elvis?
Elvis has been and probably still is on tour.
I did lights for an Elvis tour a few years back.
They just used a big video screen to project Elvis onto and had a band on stage... Still sold out arenas though.
I thought it was a bit weird to be honest..
If in doubt... Give it a clout?
