Digital Damnation, or Denying Dignity to the Dead with Computer Generated Doppelgangers

Anghus Houvouras on digital resurrection…

No. Hell no. This needs to stop and needs to be stopped in its infancy. Snuffed out before this demon baby matures into a fully grown ideological hellspawn that feasts on our cinematic souls.

I might be one of the few people who was genuinely irked at seeing the late, great Peter Cushing dragged through the uncanny valley in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. And it wasn’t about the dodgy realism but the idea of taking a great, charismatic performer and trying to replicate that magic digitally. The more I thought about it, the angrier I became. Peter Cushing was a legend. A presence. And the idea that someone so compelling and iconic could be replaced by a digital doppelgänger is an affront to the concept of performance.

This morning I read that Disney iss ‘negotiating’ with Carrie Fisher’s family about her »
