Is reality television real? Is this the real life or is it just fantasy? Paper Tiger created a show on reality television, to explore the social impacts and affective stereotypes of this explosive and exploitative genre that has taken TV networks by storm. The show features an interview with media critic, journalist and founder of Women in Media and News, Jennifer L. Pozner. Pozner explains the social, economic and cultural context of reality TV. It also includes an interview with Robert Galinsky, founder and “principal” of the New York Reality TV School, where actors get trained how to act real. Paper Tiger Interns try to make sense of all of those “Addicted to Beauty” posters through interviews with random subway passengers.
