Celebrity: A 21st Century Story

The documentary charting the transformation of celebrity examines how people capitalised on the digital revolution in order to sidestep the traditional routes to fame. When the old tabloid machinery began to lose power, celebrities made the move to the digital press - and soon after pop acts were making a buzz on the internet. Meanwhile, structured reality shows dominated the younger demographic - and all of these things came together through social media. All of a sudden there was a new way of becoming famous.
