FULL VIDEO: Starsuckers: Celebrity Obsessed Media


Starsuckers is a feature documentary about the celebrity obsessed media, that uncovers the real reasons behind our addiction to fame and blows the lid on the corporations and individuals who profit from it.

Made completely independently over 2 years in secret, the film journeys through the dark underbelly of the modern media. Using a combination of never before seen footage, undercover reporting, stunts and animation, the film reveals the toxic effect the media is having on us all and especially our children.

Chris Atkins presents Starsuckers as a series of five lessons on fame in the modern world: how children are persuaded that fame is something they want, how television and the media reinforces the importance of celebrity and the efforts to attain it, how the mind and body reinforces our need to follow the activities of well-known people and strive to join their number, how the press became addicted to celebrity coverage, and how the art of promoting fame has led to celebrities and their handlers controlling the press instead of the press having say.

Along the way, Atkins demonstrates how celebrity news with no basis in fact gets into print, why newspapers will run press releases almost verbatim, how parents will eagerly sign away the image rights to their kids, how certain mass scale charity events end up helping the performers far more than the causes they designed to support, and how publicists keep accurate but unflattering stories out of the news.

  1. Hi there would you mind stating which blog platform you’re working with? I’m looking to start
    my own blog soon but I’m having a difficult time making a decision between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your layout seems different then most blogs and I’m looking for something completely unique.
    P.S Apologies for being off-topic but I had to ask!

  2. I constantly spent my half an hour to read
    this webpage’s articles all the time along with
    a mug of coffee.

    reading at this place.

  7. Hi there! I understand this is sort of off-topic however I needed to
    ask. Does managing a well-established website such as yours take a massive amount work?
    I’m brand new to blogging but I do write in my journal on a daily basis.

    I’d like to start a blog so I will be able to share my experience and feelings
    online. Please let me know if you have any kind of ideas or tips for new aspiring blog owners.

    Thankyou!

  8. Amazing blog! Do you have any tips for aspiring writers? I’m
    planning to start my own website soon but I’m a little lost on everything.
    Would you advise starting with a free platform like WordPress or go
    for a paid option? There are so many choices out there that I’m
    completely overwhelmed .. Any recommendations? Thanks a lot!
