thinking abt how futurists want to upload our minds to the internet and become immortal and how itd effect tupacs art to be disembodied, just occasionally projected for profit, the deep longing for corporeality in rap form

^ good short story idea at least

I kind of feel like I'll just have enough money in my estate to pay for a 3d model of me, but they won't have enough money for animation so it'll just be my likeness performing Tupac songs with his voice

yeah, hologramming of real-life stuff in real time will be big. plus we could all have chess sets featuring monsters!

if this isn't a hologram, does that make it a hologram of a hologram

Looking forward to Holmgren Hologram.

i saw this and it was amazing, but hard to get a feel for how it was in person, given that i was watching it in 2-D. i guess i sort of just doubt this is an actual hologram? don't you need to use some crazy 3-D capture camera technology to make a hologram? you can't just extrapolate a hologram from video footage

(i realize there is probably a listicle that explains all this)

if it were a hologram you'd be able to move from side to side and see a different angle of tupac, but no such luck

mh, Monday, 16 April 2012 15:42 (2 years ago) Permalink

they can make 3d movies from 2d movies, like u dont see pac from all angles, just front on but he looks a lil popping out

lag∞n, Monday, 16 April 2012 15:43 (2 years ago) Permalink

you can't just extrapolate a hologram from video footage

This pretty much looks like a 3d computer model of Tupac which could be kind of like a hologram, but you'd have to be able to actually pan around. Everyone there saw the same angle, no matter which side of the stage they were on. He just probably looked kind of distorted.

For a really-real hologram, they'd have had to capture him using a camera that picked up all available light etc etc and it'd have to be video of him from life

tbh i don't really give a shit about holograms, wake me when we get a Star Trek: The Next Generation-style holodeck

Were you all wearing your special hologram glasses?

some dude, Monday, 16 April 2012 15:50 (2 years ago) Permalink

Masonic Butt (Lamp), Monday, 16 April 2012 15:50 (2 years ago) Permalink

it's interesting that before they show they pre-announced the hologram nate dogg but let this be a surprise

Coulda swore I heard something about this on Saturday as the follow-on from the Nate Dogg thing.

Ned Raggett, Monday, 16 April 2012 15:51 (2 years ago) Permalink

yeah maybe...but the nate thing was pretty well known in the press like a week ago, no mention of 2pac at the time

"We worked with Dr. Dre on this and it was Dre's vision to bring this back to life," said Nick Smith, president of AV Concepts, the San Diego company that created the hologram. "It was his idea from the very beginning and we worked with him and his camp to utilize the technology to make it come to life."

Smith said he wasn't allowed to talk about the creative aspects of the production — including how the hologram was able to seemingly perform the set in synch with Snoop and whether all the vocals were 'Pac's — but he did say that his company has the ability to recreate long-dead figures and visually recreate them in the studio. "You can take their likenesses and voice and ... take people that haven't done concerts before or perform music they haven't sung and digitally recreate it," he said.

The hologram was the latest visual magic pulled off by AV, which is also behind the 2005 Grammys performance featuring Madonna and the holographic members of the Gorillaz, as well as holograms used in concert by Celine Dion and the Black Eyed Peas.

The Tupac hologram was several months in the planning and took nearly four months to create in a studio and though Smith was not able to reveal the exact price tag for the illusion, he said a comparable one could cost anywhere from $100,000 to more than $400,000 to pull off. "I can't say how much that event cost, but I can say it's affordable in the sense that if we had to bring entertainers around world and create concerts across the country, we could put [artists] in every venue in the country," he said.

The life-size Tupac was amazingly life-like, down to the late rapper's signature tattoos, Timberland boots, jewelry and movements, all of which were also recreated under the direction of Dre.

is that from real footage of tupac? otherwise seems like you could just get a body double, do some motion capture, pull the same tricks that movie companies do to cash in when a star dies during filming

dayo, Monday, 16 April 2012 18:25 (2 years ago) Permalink

no that's not how he died

iatee, Monday, 16 April 2012 18:25 (2 years ago) Permalink

of course it's real footage of him from an actual concert he performed, what else would it be?
