I participated in the music intro on solo artist Kim Jaejoong’s Hologram Concert in Japan.
Since Kim Jaejoong finished shooting the whole concert before his enlistment,
the concert was possible after adding some finishing touches.
This type on concerts are very rare inside and outside of Korea.
I heard later that it was very successful.
I guess it was possible because it was in Japan.
So much data work was necessary in order to make it look as if the artist was present on stage.
I couldn’t see it with my own eyes but the photos of the concert seems very real.
Blending of live band and the hologram image was a fresh, very innovative stage directing format.
No artist from Korea adopted this format before, yet it seems like an interesting, new type of concert format many artists can try.
It’s unfortunate that I can’t share clips from the actual concert, because it’s in the process of made into a DVD
The intro takes up the whole wall, wich turned into a gigantic screen, via projection mapping technique.
Theme of video used in intro was, “Even though you can’t see with your own eyes,
If your heart really wants to see,
your heart’s desire will be reflected somewhere and become reality”
Though it’s not real, hologram reflects the reality and looks real.
I think the intro ilustrated the concept of the hologram pretty well.
Japanese narration play over the music and the video…
But I can’t share it either due to copyright issues…
