Digital Domain Holdings has entered into a 10 year agreement with TNT Production to produce 3D virtual performance holograms of Teresa Teng for concerts, movies and other media. Teng, who passed away in 1995, was an Asian pop star with millions of adoring fans. Digital Domain created a virtual hologram of Teng for Jay Chou‘s 2013 Taiwan and Hong Kong concerts.
“It is truly an honor for us to preserve and promote the legacy of Miss Teng,” said Daniel Seah, CEO of Digital Domain 3.0 and CEO of parent company Digital Domain Holdings. “The dedicated team at Digital Domain 3.0 worked closely with her foundation to bring her personality and spirit to her performances in 2013. We look to continue that close partnership and find ways for her enduring fans, as well as a whole new generation, to experience her talent for many years to come.”
In 2012 a stunned audience at the Coachella Valley Music Festival witnessed the first-of-its kind 3D holographic performance when the rap artist Tupac Shakur took the stage with rap star Dr. Dre. The artists at Digital Domain combined 3D holographic projection technology with realistic virtual human rendering. The show quickly became news around the world and caught the eye of pop star Jay Chou. Joining up with Digital Domain, with the blessing of the Teresa Teng Foundation, the audience for Chou’s “Opus Jay 2013 World Tour” show in Taipei were treated to a surprise three song set from Teng. With additional shows in Hong Kong, Teng’s virtual performance was seen by over 100,000 and demonstrated the appeal of this kind of performance.
