Our favorite DIY special effects guru Joey Shanks
has a new how-to video for filmmakers, and this one shows you how to create holograms in camera. Cool, right?
Now that Apple is trying to develop its own holographic technology, Shanks said, “It’s only a matter of time that we will be using and seeing holograms in our everyday lives.” With that in mind, Shanks shows us how to use glass, mirrors, fog, mist, steam and a projector to create the illusion of a hologram.
“When holograms eventually become a part of mainstream culture these old techniques shown in this video will still play a factor in the creation of the technology that takes us to the Holographic revolution,” said Shanks.
