Overheard at Booth 1: Really Doesn't Matter

Really doesn't matter the actors on strike over AI, because at the end of the day, the execs already won.

What makes you say that?

They say they're up in arms over AI using their faces and trying to say that public doesn't want that, but really doesn't matter because at the end of the day the public don't care if that's really Tom Cruise or Timothy Chamalet or Zendaya or Margot Robbie's faces or just some AI image of the faces because all they want's the image.

Come on, now, sure they want to know that's a real actor talking.

They didn't care about Gollum being CG.  Or Rocket in the Guardians.

That's motion capture, that's different.  Actors still shooting scenes.

That's where it started though, all that background, CG.  Not a real set.  

Of course, all that people want is to go the movies to escape to worlds of fantasy.

Which is why the AI faces don't matter to the people.  Carrie Fisher - the last Star Wars.  People thought it was silly, but no one said it was WRONG. 

I think a lot of people said it was wrong.  The actress was dead and they were using her face.

But not enough said it was wrong to ever make them say, "we promise never to do this again."

OK, I'll give you that one.

What I'm saying is that AI will replace Mo-Cap.  Because AI, at the end of the day, don't go on strike, and it really doesn't matter to people who, as you said, ALL that people want is to go the movies to escape to worlds of fantasy.
