The Mary Sue Exclusive: Fake Off‘s Finale Performance Includes 3D Hologram Scrim
With bonus Harry Shum, Jr.
We’ve told you guys about truTV’s Fake Off, where “faking” teams frequently use awesome tech to make their performances come to life. In this exclusive clip for TMS from the show’s finale this upcoming Monday, artists Freelusion USA make use of 3D hologram scrims, and it features a pretty impressive performance from 41-year-old Hungarian team leader, Timea Papp.
Hosted by Step Up 2‘s Rob Hoffman and co-judged by Glee‘s Harry Shum, Jr., TLC’s (the singers, not the channel) Chilli, and concept designer Michael Curry, Fake Off highlights “fakers“—people skilled at using theatre, dance, acrobatics, illusion, black light, shadow puppetry, and performance technologies to tell a story. Each week, the performance teams are challenged to re-create a certain theme or moment in pop culture or history—like this black-lit demonstration of the Big Bang. Art and science!
The Fake Off finale airs this Monday, December 15th at 10pm on truTV!
