How about a variation on the theme of Galatea? A young lady from the digital realm crosses over to the real world to seek happiness. For the second part of the title combine in a story of a man who is disenchanted with the real world wishing that he were able to live the adventures and heroic deeds of his virtual characters. Some how the two can meet and complete each others life and find real happiness together in one reality or another.
I was thinking about something similar . Thank you for reminding me about Galatea
( I have to find my old greek mythology textbook.). This can be a good example to show how people had the idea to bring something artificial into life much more before the era of the virtual reality ( I guess that's in our days
). I also was thinking about the professional 3D artists' obssesion with photorealism last years and the reaction of non 3D artists. ( Some people accused me of doing something very very wrong by making 3D video clips.
) I think there are people who thinks that in future 3D characters would replace the real actors. ( It would be a paradise for 3D artists no matter if they're making animation characters or photorealistic people
) The real actors need repetitions , make-up , and from an director's point of view it would be difficult to make them do exactly what you want and their gestures couldn't be as you see them in your mind. There are exceptions of course.
And the best part : the 3D characters never get old , and they do not need payment .
Maybe the money will be spend in updating the system configuration , because the techology is developping fast.
And they can do cascades too. The other good thing about 3D characters is that thay could be absolutely perfect ( if you want to make them) , I'm talking about face symmetry , body shapes ( sometimes exaggerated) , proportions this somehow fix the imperfections of the real people. And the virtual 3D world could be a haven made of polygons , textures , ambient/volumetric lights and of course lots of colours. The best thing is that you decide how it will look like , it can be ultra-photorealistic , surrrealistic , a fantasy world just look at some gallery with various artists - completely diffrent things ( sometimes not ex: a Vicky with a sword
) made using the same software and creative techniques. In the 3d world you can be perfect ( physically look) , you don't get older ( Something like "It grows , but it don't get older " our capital's device. This can be a good quote lol) , you don't have to work (not very sure
) , you don't have to adapt to the social environment ( because you create it) , and you don't have to die (no more fear of dying). Isn't this ultra-utopic? ( I must stop using this rhetoric questions!
) So artists are attempting to make an idividual from an 3D character ( "Final Fantasy" the movie) witch have to look "more real than the real one" ( I invented this phrase lol ) , and maybe this might means that the 3d characters want to be real. In the same time virtual reality becomes too attractive for people dissapointed from reality , wishing to escape from it in the virtual world ( like me ) and that might means that real people want to be virtual...
Or maybe I just must invent another title and stop write this nonsence !
