Influencers are renting studio space to take fake private jet photoshoots
Influencers can make tens of thousands if not millions of dollars. The power of a social media following has translated from a cool statistic to a powerful tool in the entertainment industry. As we previously reported, more and more casting directors are choosing talent who have a larger social media following than those that do not regardless of talent. This translates to above the line and below the line workers doing whatever it takes to gain a social media following. As a result, this new news report surrounding studio space is not that surprising.
According to reports, Los Angeles influencers have been posting fake private jet selfies. A recent listing on booking platform Peerspace has revealed several studios with staged setups including interiors of private jets.
A twitter user broke the news and discovered these rooms are offering rates at only $64/hour. “I just found out LA IG girlies are using studio sets that look like private jets for their pics,” says Melissa (@maisonmeIissa). It’s crazy that anything you’re looking at could be fake. The setting, the clothes, the body… IDK it just kinda shakes my reality a bit lol.”
