On March 18, 1981, António Variações gave his first concert. From then on, Lisbon's nightlife was never the same. 41 years later, the greatest Portuguese pop artist of all time returned to the stage to perform “Canção de Engate” with the band from the film Variações. A hologram performance, fully filmed by the audience in low light with the Galaxy S22.
Studio Nuts was responsible for developing the hologram for the concert and the campaign images. Once only low-resolution photos and videos were available, we had to recreate in CGI Antonio Variações's face to prepare the deepfake.
