Maker Of Tupac Hologram Talks Pressure Surrounding Coachella Festival Display

(AllHipHop News) The head of the company that created the hologram technology that produced the late Tupac Shakur at Coachella over the weekend recently explained the challenges behind bringing the rapper back to life.

AV Concepts is the company that created the Tupac hologram, which impressed concertgoers and viewers around the world on April 15, with its life-like interaction between Snoop Dogg and Dr. Dre.

Over 100,000 fans witnessed the life-like performance of the late Tupac Shakur, which was coordinated between Dr. Dre’s production company and AV Concepts.

“This show was by far one of the most exciting yet challenging projects we have ever worked on,” said Nick Smith, President of AV Concepts. “A highly choreographed, live, outdoor holographic production of this magnitude with hundreds of thousands of people watching gave us the added incentive, and pressure, to deliver.”

AV Concepts is a 24-year-old award-winning technology solutions company that offers video, audio and staging services.

The success of the Tupac hologram comes on the heels of AV Concepts’ partnership with Chris Brown during this year’s Grammy Awards, which saw the tech company design the singer’s sets during his performance.

  • I bet it was a lot of pressure.  To recreate a legend and then the surrounding hype of it all alone is enough.  If there would have been a malfunction, that woulda fucked up the entire concert and somebody’s ass was gettin fired fo sho!

    Nice body double but that wasn’t 2Pac’s image at all.

  • This is a wonderful example of the power of technology to literally capture the human spirit, as a spectacle and spectator!

  • I watched the video & I don’t know if it was the sound or what but the crowd acted like they seen Pac perform just last week.

    Reminder: Afeni gave the blessing to do this. Dre asked permission. Dre and Tupac had fallout, yes. Afeni cleared the Tupac appearance. So take it to Afeni if you are upset. Case closed.
