Having previously collaborated with Forever 21 on its hugely successful and revolutionary Augmented Reality billboard in Times Square (


), named one of the “10 Coolest Ads Ever To Appear In Times Square” by Business Insider, Futuristic Films was called on once again to work with the international retailer to create a Holographic Runway Show. Futuristic Films Director Jasper Gray, in partnership with space150 productions, created a 7-minute virtual runway, integrating live-action footage of models with hologram technology, 3D techniques and sound design. An unforgettable visual experience, the Forever 21 Holographic Runway Show has been showcased across Europe this summer in Austria, Belgium, and Great Britain.

"Futuristic Films and Jasper in particular did a great job of bringing the creative and technical aspects of the project together to produce something unique that really helped us achieve our goals for our European store openings,” explains Kirstin Nagle of Forever 21.
