Master Chief: Spartan 117 stands tall over Sydney Harbour, plus Toronto, Mexico City, and Sao Paulo.

A giant 18.3m (60 feet) tall 3D hologram of HALO’s Master Chief: Spartan 117 was installed on Sydney Harbour to promote the HALO series on Paramount+.

Also installed in Toronto, Mexico City, Sao Paulo on April 17 for one day, it was produced by Minute Media in partnership with hologram specialists, Kaleida, and media agency, Wavemaker.

Each installation weighed over 24 tons and was built using over 100m of metal trussing to house 126 square meters of specialist hologram gauze.
