To commemorate the 100th anniversary of the birth of the late Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan, a Dubai-based production house has unveiled an ultra-realistic, high-tech hologram that depicts the UAE’s Founding Father giving a speech directed at the UAE’s youth.
The hologram – developed by New Dimension Productions (NDP) – was created using 3D technology to recreate Sheikh Zayed’s detailed facial textures, head animation and compositing.
The production was created by a team of experts over 400 hours of work.
To create the hologram, the NDP team conducted thorough research of Sheikh Zayed’s tone of voice, his facial expressions and body gestures. To re-master the audio, different sources of recordings had to be matched, synched and tuned.
In 2016, NDP – which works mostly for UAE and GCC clients – moved from Amman to Dubai.
