When the audience saw Michael Jackson on stage during the Billboard Music Awards, everybody was thrilled. It looked so real that people could not help but talk about the Sunday’s incidence on social media for weeks. The most surprising bit is that it was not a hologram, but rather an illusion. The performance was pulled off by Pulse, with John Textor being the ‘main man’. John is the executive chair of Pulse. However, this was not the first time that John and his digital team pulled off such a show. The first time they did something close to that was when they brought the late Tupac Shakur as he rapped alongside Snoop Dogg. This happened during the Coachella music festival in 2012. However, John admitted that it was harder to pull off MJ’s show as compared to Tupac’s. It is so because Tupac did not have hair and did not have to be all over the place like MJ.
The previous head of Digital Domain (Textor) said that he is looking forward to creating a major show for an estate. However, he warned that if they brought any great singer on stage, they would have to make the show story based. This is because having a motionless MJ on stage would not work. As everybody prepares to see the great show, it is evident that Pulse will have to put in more effort. This is because making a human being seem real requires more effort.
Though the task ahead is quite demanding, it is very likely to work especially because of the team leader, John Textor. John has vast experience and is appreciated as the pioneer of the leading Holographic entertainment industry. Currently, he is involved in the active development of entertainment properties across several platforms. He is the producer of Art Story. Art Story is an original animated film that is being developed by Aaron Blaise, Disney Expert filmmaker. He also produced Ender’s game that is a science fantasy fiction film that was launched in November 2013.
Mr. John is the founder of Wyndcrest Holdings, LLC, which is a private company that focuses on technology-related opportunities on the internet, in telecommunications and the entertainment sector. He has been its president since 1997. Textor has previously served as the CEO and chairman of Baby Universe, which is a top producer of baby-related products. John saved Baby Universe from insolvency back in 2001 with only a $300,000 investment. He is also well known for his leadership at Multicast Media Technologies, Inc, which provides Internet-based broadcast media globally. The company was however sold to KIT digital of Czechoslovakia. Mr. Textor has worked for many other companies besides the ones named above. Considering his major successes in the industry, it is evident that John is successful in the filmmaking career.
