"It is amazing to experience the future in the here and now,” says Uri Singer, a producer for Marjorie Prime. "When we first started working on the movie, the script dictated that the holograms would be portrayed as a futuristic reality. Making an actual hologram, not only on film but one that can be experienced around the world right from your smartphone, attests to how present the future has become."
