How do you impress a NYC audience?


3LD and Eyeliner technology create holographic visuals live on stage

American Express kicks off the NYC Partners in Preservation Initiative with Katherine McPhee at the Metropolitan Museum

Mechanism Digital was brought in to help American Express kick off their Partners In Preservation program to choose three sites out of forty NYC landmarks to donate $3million dollars to.  The team’s challenge was to combine a disparate collection of still photos and drawings of historical sites from around NYC and bring them to life for Amex’s press event introduced by Mayor Bloomberg at the Metropolitan Museum of Art.  Mechanism Digital teamed up with 3LD to employ an Eyeliner, a technology originating from the 1800’s called the Pepper’s Ghost, which uses an invisible high tension sheet plastic to reflect holographic-like imagery. The Eyeliner recently made a splash at Coachella to project Tupac singing “live” with Snoop Dog.  The creative team orchestrated a live stage presentation with cut-out, multi-plane elements from historical photos which unfolded like a pop-up book around Katherine McPhee, the star of TV show “Smash.” while she sang Sinatra’s “New York, New York.”
