Film and acting academies might find this idea interesting.
Many people dream of starring in a movie, so much so that hundreds of people volunteer for positions as extras, often unpaid, whenever a film is being shot nearby. This person spent more than $10 000 for a small speaking role in a movie. Perhaps they would be willing to pay to immortalize themselves as the lead in a film.
The operation would be simple, academies have all the equipment, actors, producers, writers and directors that are needed. In order to be graded, these students need to produce a short film anyway. So all the necessary aspects are there.
What if people were allowed to buy a lead role in a scene that they can choose from a selection that the academy would be able to recreate (I don't know how exactly copyright laws will apply here, they might need to pick from a selection of scenes written by people in the academy).
In this way, the academy can make money while the students gain the necessary experience while the customer gets the chance to make a dream come true.
