Makers Of The 'Tupac Hologram' File For Bankruptcy
Digital Domain Media Group, who made headlines this year when they created a hologram for the late Tupac Shakur that "performed" at the Coachella music festival this spring, have filed for bankruptcy.
According to CNN, Digital Domain, which went public in November, said in a press release that it filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection from its creditors. The 20-year-old company, whose founders include director James Cameron, worked on special effects for blockbuster films such as "Pirates of the Caribbean," "Transformers" and Cameron's "Titanic." The company won an Oscar for its work on reverse-aging Brad Pitt's character in "The Curious Case of Benjamin Button."
