When David Fortanbary took his place as president of the Life Sciences Trainers and Educators Network (LTEN), he knew his keynote address had to make an impact on the audience. He presented the CMI creative and production teams with the challenge of developing a cutting-edge, unique opening that would surprise the audience and set the tone of excitement for the rest of the meeting.
David, Meet David!
Our answer to this request included an innovative solution showcasing a lifesized holographic David Fortanbary. By developing well-timed graphics and customized supporting video, we were able to kick-off the meeting with our David Hologram as the keynote speaker. The audience was enthralled as David seemed to appear on stage, address the crowd, and magically make the images that appeared in his hands react with the LED screens above him. Fully engrossed in hologram David’s performance, many attendees audibly gasped when the real-life David Fortanbary appeared and joined his hologram on stage for a one on one conversation with himself! A humorous script between real and hologram David was a hit with attendees and sent the crowd roaring with applause as the new LTEN president dismissed his holographic self, and addressed the crowd for the first time.
