        Yeah, but he's worth like 300M. Now if you are a poor shmuck trying to get into the industry I'm sure that's going to pop in a bunch of contracts from now on.

          >Bruce Willis did not sell his rights to a deepfake studio, despite reports of the contrary that recently went viral online. The Telegraph reported at the end of Sept. that Willis made history as “the first Hollywood star to sell his rights to allow a ‘digital twin’ of himself to be created for use on screen.” While a “digital twin” of Willis was created by the deepfake company Deepcake to be used in an advertisement for the Russian telecoms company MegaFon, Deepcake does not own the rights to Willis’ image — or to his “digital twin.”

      These actors have less job stability than day laborers hanging out In front of Home Depot, and often less earning potential. They come in for the job as an extra, and are told they need to be scanned, or they won't get paid for the day. Chances are the contact they sign is never explained, and they have no time to read it themselves. Super shady shit by the studios, because they have way more money and power, and figure they can get away with it.

      I'll do it. I'm literally nobody, some lonely poor nerd. So if I could be a part of every movie from now on until the rest of time, why not? My likeness doesn't have any worth.

      There's this strange idea that the "actors deserve money". Why? If there's a cost saving method that produces the same quality or near the same quality, then it should be taken. Then the actors can go get a job on a farm or somewhere where they're actually needed.

      Because they're not needed anymore.

      Artists aren't needed either.

        Good actors are needed. Granted, most actors and most roles that are played (even by good actors) don't hit it off at all. But a good actor conveys the meaning of his role and the story better than any AI will be able to in the foreseeable future, because a) thousands of minuscule details in facial expression, tone of voice, etc. and b) he's real. And imitation will never beat the real thing.

        In fact, the whole AI development only makes people realize: We have to go back to meet in person, as everything on the web soon will be indistinguishable from fakes and you can't trust anything digital anymore. Some people are afraid. Me, I'm happy. People finally give up on the internet as their central pivot in life and get back into the real world again, leaving this mess behind for anything but what it's useful for: research, entertainment and automation.

        It sounds like a good idea, but then someone could use your face as neo-Fuhrer in a future-Nazi movie, and you would have to try to explain that you aren't actually the neo-Fuhrer, and that you sold your face for $200.

      Indeed. And what happened when Hollywood demands all extras and newbie actors sign a CGI release form and then use that actor's likeness as the main characters in later movies? The studios can use their likeness to make bazillion dollar flicks and literally never have to pay the actual human actor ever again.

      You can already pay people $200 to stand around in the cold and rain all day just to feature in the background for 5 seconds.

      I'm sure some poor sap will gladly sell their likeness to an AI.

          Early life and early career

          Riley was born in Rochford, Essex.[4] She was raised in the Thorpe Bay area of Southend-on-Sea and was educated at the independent Thorpe Hall School, and Southend High School for Girls,[5] a grammar school, where she obtained four As at A-Level.[6] She then completed a master's degree in mathematics at the University of Oxford.[7]

          During a university holiday, Riley considered a career in the financial sector and completed an internship at Deutsche Bank in the City of London. The experience put her off: she found the extreme behaviour of city traders wearing, and she disliked the early-morning train commute.

      You're a new, aspiring actor, and just scored a bit part on an episode of the current "it" show. You'll sign/do whatever they throw at you, short of sleeping with the producer.

      These actors have less job stability than day laborers hanging out In front of Home Depot, and often less earning potential. They come in for the job as an extra, and are told they need to be scanned, or they won't get paid for the day. Chances are the contact they sign is never explained, and they have no time to read it themselves. Super shady shit by the studios, because they have way more money and power, and figure they can get away with it.

      >Chances are the contact they sign is never explained, and they have no time to read it themselves

      If they can even read it.

      I worked as a PA on a very well known series. One of my jobs was assembling form packets we handed out to actors to sign. Despite being 8 seasons in, and office effectively run by the same person throughout, there seemed no good system for assembling them.
      We'd pull forms from several piles. And when a pile ran out, ran more copies. Of course the master if any was usually lost, so they'd just make a copy of a copy (which itself was a copy of a copy.) You could barely read the things, people only knew where to sign because we'd stick little "sign here" flags on them.
      Eventually I tracked down the original documents online, printed and assembled a master copy, and just ran that thing through the copier whenever we needed more. Way easier than trying to navigate 7 piles of paper on my desk (crammed between my lunch and other tasks they gave me that day.) Who knows if they kept up my system the next season.
