1. A method, comprising:
identifying a first computer generated object for which to provide an eyeline reference to a first performer acting on a set;
providing the eyeline reference to the first performer by generating, by a holographic control service, a first holographic projection of the first computer generated object using a first holographic display, wherein the first holographic display is configured to make the first holographic projection appear, to the first performer, to be located at a designated physical position for the first computer generated object on the set, wherein the first holographic display is located at a first physical location on the set;
determining, based on the first physical location of the first holographic display and a field of view of an image capture device, that the first holographic projection will not be visible in one or more images of the first performer and the designated physical position captured by the image capture device;
capturing the one or more images of the first performer using the image capture device with the field of view such that the captured one or more images depict the first performer and do not depict the first holographic projection; and
modifying the captured one or more images to add the first computer generated object.
