Endemol, the producers of the famous UK reality TV show Big Bother, asked activ8-events to create 3D holographic projections for the latest series of the programme. Traditionally, each year the housemates receive a letter from friends and family back home. This year however, the producers of Big Brother decided to do something spectacular...That's where activ8-events come in!

activ8-events and Endemol worked together to film each of the housemates’ friends and families give messages from home. activ8-events's years of experienceworking in holographic projection ensured that the perfect technical specifications were met while recording the messages, a vital factor in creating crisp, clear, life-like holograms.

During the two days prior to the show itself, activ8-events and Endemol worked tirelessly to build and assemble the stage, position the 10,000 lumen HD projector, install the correct lighting, fit the 3D-holofilm, and load the 3D holographic content. With everything in place and thoroughly tested, the Big Brother hologram messages from home were ready to be played live to the housemates!


The 3D hologram messages from home did not leave a dry eye in the Big Brother house. Lisa was the first housemate to receive her hologram message, from her mum and aunt. Lisa cried and smiled throughout the hologram message as she found out that her brother was having a baby - due on her birthday.

The housemates were truly stunned by activ8-events's holographic projections.

“Any other screen message on video isn’t a touch on that. They are in front of you – none of this flat screen or plasma screen – they are really there.” exclaimed David.

“It’s lovely. It’s like you wanna touch it. I can’t believe it. I’m shaking,” replied Lisa.

“Oh my god this is the best thing that’s happened in the ****** world ever!” claimed Siavash.

All in all the holographic projections in the Big Brother house provided by activ8-events were a resounding success, hailed as one of the highlights of the whole series. activ8-events are proud to have worked with Big Brother and Endemol on this ground-breaking project, and can't wait to work on similar events in the future!
