What are the advantages to a movie studio of an artificially created star?

Due to our advanced technology in the modern society, there is virtually no difference what so ever between a real star and a made up one. A star is an image of a person who is famous across a range of media. They are accepted by these media and would have many news values.  They would have global appeal as well as star power.

 The movie studio would have total control over the artificially created star and therefore, the star would appear and look how they want them to. This star would show up on time, meaning that employees would no longer have to put up with its temper; mood swings; reducing the likelihood of unexpected problems etc.

It would also be safer for movie studios to use these artificially created stars as they would be able to predict what will happen since they control them and so the promised box office the star power provides would therefore, maintain under the control of the movie studios.


As a conclusion, having an artificially created star would be cheaper and would mean that the movie studio would be able to have total control over them.  Their star would be perfect, and the public wouldn’t be able to tell the difference between a real star and an artificially created one. This artificially created star would be the movie studio’s property while it would still have star powers and would be a product or a service that could be bought and sold with a minimum amount of value.

Many audiences would be attracted to this artificially created star and would purchase products related to this star in order to know their star properly. They would listen to this star and would do anything this star tells them to do.

As a conclusion, the audiences may not believe that there would be anyone who could possibly be perfect and therefore would try to find out more about this star. And yet, they do not want such perfect stars as it is not interesting if every aspect of their life is perfect, causing the media to only write achievements and positive news since negativity usually means good news to people, making them interested.

  1. The life cycle of a star.

    Every star then exists in a state of slowly evolving stability. On the one hand there is the trend for the material to continue to collapse under gravity. On the other hand there is a tendency for the violent thermal activity and the emission of radiation resulting from fusion to blow the material apart.

  2. In the beginning God created the Heavens and the Earth.

    Why is this a cautionary tale in our context? We, and the scientific experts who have studied the matter of the beginnings of the earth, are like these blind men of Indostan, we can only see one small part of the picture, and our conclusions may not be consistent with the whole, although individually they may be reasonable.

  1. A consideration of Lord of the Rings: Fellowship of the Ring, and Star Wars: ...

    The latter is also considerably longer in length, but is equivalent to the five minutes of text seen in the opening sequence in Star Wars. Both are equally effective but Fellowship of the Ring is much more compelling and far more memorable.

  2. The life of a Star

    Eventually the star collapses, forming a small dense, hot star called a white dwarf (a star about the size of Earth). Over millions of years the white dwarf cools down, eventually becoming a black dwarf; too cold to shine. By this time it is very near the end of it's life.

  1. What are stars made of?

    The longest period in a star's life is as a main sequence star Once the contraction phase is completed, the star becomes a fixed star, an "adult" so to speak, and enters the main sequence star phase. Stars in this phase produce energy as the result of a nuclear reaction that creates one helium atom from every four hydrogen atoms.

  2. Life Cycle of a Star

    These are the raw materials of future stars. Clusters of interstellar particles attract more and more other particles, gradually increasing in size. Eventually, the cluster begins to contract by virtue of its own gravity. Then, when the core temperature has reached around 10 million degrees, a nuclear reaction begins.
