Zanzibar: Trouble in Paradise is a volumetric documentary that premiered at Tribeca Immersive 2022 on the Looking Glass Factory 65-inch Holographic Display that was announced on June 7, 2022 just before the festival. I was able to catch up with Brandon Zamel (CEO at Springbok Entertainment), Steven-Charles Jaffe (Cheif Operating Officer at Springbok Entertainment & co-director of Zanzibar), and Ashraki Mussa Machano (co-director of Zanzibar) to get the backstory of how this project came about, and some of the logistical details on their customized volumetric capture pipeline that can spatialize video and spatial data that captured on an iPhone, and format it so that it looks good on Looking Glass Factory’s Holographic Displays.
