The company that brought Tupac Shakur to life at Coachella 2012 goes bankrupt
Tupac fans attending Coachella 2012 were left jaw-dropped when Snoop Dogg took stage and performed with the late Tupac Shakur, or rather, his holographic form. A stunt pulled off successfully by Digital Domain Media Group, a company that has on previous account made its mark with special effects in a bunch of movies including The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, the Snoop Dogg-Tupac Shakur performance will go down in history as a one-of-a-kind performance. And yes, you’d probably need to stop hoping for more, given that the folks responsible for it all, the Digital Domain Media Group,, have filed for bankruptcy, with cobwebs dominating most of the company’s coffers. With assets of $205 million and debts of $214 million as of the 30th of June, this promising company simply couldn’t pull itself off the ground, with the CEO John Textor calling it quits. With its Port St. Lucie office shut, the company has fired nearly 320 employees, though an upcoming project with Lionsgate based on the Ender’s Game franchise will continue as planned.
