Tupac Hologram Creator Goes Bankrupt
The group who made the controversial Tupac hologram for this year's Coachella Festival has gone bankrupt. Digital Domain Group, which has been running for almost 20 years, had also worked on special effects for movies including "Pirates Of The Caribbean", "Transformers" and "Titanic". In its court filings, the company said it had simply "run out of cash," according to Music Week. Its Tupac hologram caused a frenzy when the deceased rap star appeared alongside Snoop Dog (now called Snoop Lion) on stage at Coachella. It prompted both excitement and concern among fans of other deceased artists, and raised an important question: who owns your rights when you're dead? The news comes shortly after the company had confirmed a series of Elvis Presley likenesses for not only live shows but entertainment on other platforms, though wouldn't offer further details. Digital Domain Group could still live on, as a private firm has already offered $15 million for its core production business. In April we ran a list of the top 10 most wanted hologram musicians, topped by Jimi Hendrix, Freddie Mercury and Ronnie James Dio. Who would you like to come back from the dead and perform on stage again? Let us know in the comments.
