The Master Chief hologram was produced for Paramount+ by Minute Media, a global technology and content publisher, in partnership with hologram specialists Kaleida and media agency Wavemaker.

“We’re excited to have been part of the creative concept and strategy for this pioneering project. At Wavemaker, we’re constantly looking to break new ground and reshape consumer experiences. By combining innovative ideas underpinned by our strategic media approach we’ve brought an epic moment to life for fans to enjoy worldwide,” said Sophie Finckenberg, Digital Director, Wavemaker.

The record-breaking hologram, dubbed the ‘HALOgram’, scaled the equivalent height of a six-story building and featured a custom 3D animation that saw the Master Chief land on Earth and assess the local surroundings. Each installation weighed over 24 tons and was built using over 100m of metal trussing to house 126 square meters of specialist hologram gauze.

“Kaleida is all about world firsts and creating works on a scale that have never before been attempted. The four largest outdoor holograms in the world, in a 24 hour period, is a challenge we were excited and honored to be invited to take on,” said Kaleida co-founder Daniel Reynolds.
