2. Do I need special equipment to create the projected images?

No. Standard video or still cameras and projectors are very effective for creating this holographic illusion. However, the better quality the video camera and projection equipment the better the resulting 3D effect. Other more important factors like room lighting, creative use of background props and projector contrast ratio have a larger impact on the effectiveness of the holographic illusion.
