Oh my God, I just totally saw the future of television through this. Basically what's been happening for a while is that the distance between a video
of someone and a computer generated avatar of them has becoming less and less for some time, which means that's its becoming possible to make a show
where they can make a character look like Kevin Bacon, (for instance) even though he was never filmed for the show, just based on metrics from his
face and voice.
Okay, so picture this: The show is called "Reflections", and its this group of investigators looking for this incredible but secret hero, who's
doing all this awesome stuff behind the scenes. Users have to download software with their video enabled computers to get into the secret footage of
who this hero is, which is concealed from normal viewers. But when they do, it video tapes their face.
And the hero, broadcast on cable TV to their homes after they've downloaded the software? ITS THEM THE VIEWER! Of course you need to record different
responses based on gender and appearance from the (real) supporting actors, but the point is each person has the experience of discovering THEMSELVES
as the secret hero, seeing real video, or a computer generated avatar based off video of them. Man, that show would be a trip!
