As the director and overall brain behind The Truman Show, Christof acts like a God figure. Not only does Christof control ever aspect of Truman’s world but he also controls the audience and what they see. He has created a world for Truman to live in and a world in which audience members have become ritually devoted to. Christof has created a reality for audience members, one that they accept so certainly. Audience members are devoted, engaged and even buy products seen on The Truman Show in order to become that much more involved. In this sense, the actual film’s creators also act like God-like figures: creating a story, casting actors, making final decisions on the means of production.
