Re: Real or not?
I have wondered if we might start to see digital actors in the future. Just a computer AI using hundreds of actors and actresses over the past 100 years to generate the age weight and ethnicity wanted for a role. I could see that becoming a thing in the future where movie studios would want 100% control over an actors use. With deepfakes a studio could go this is Jane Bond in 2024 and in 2054 he hasn’t aged a day instead of having several actors play the role (which several would behind the scenes).
I can 100% see the reason why a studio would want that especially for super hero movies where the toys can make a lot of money to own the actors appearance and not have to license out to the star. The bad side is we could see the perfect example of beauty that nobody realistically can match and that could really have a negative impact on society. Korea already has an AI generated super model they are licensing out to appear in ads so it’s not that far off from becoming main stream.
