In the late 90s, I was involved with a company that produced high-end animation. Most of our customers were in the TV business and HDTV was finally getting a little investment.
At the time, I figured that HDTV would shorten the careers of a lot of on-air talent. I’m not sure that it has, yet, but it might soon.
Memorandum has captured a cluster of recent articles and posts on the “cruel impact of HDTV on our valuable national celebrities”:http://tech.memeorandum.com/051205/p20#a051205p20.
I have a solution: Virtual Makeup
Virtual makeup starts with a 3D model of a celebrities head, neck and shoulders. This then used to layer “virtual makeup” on their live image to correct imperfections and conceal flaws.
I have another solution too: Bring on the new blood!
