For the past few months I’ve been following and interacting with more and more AI film creators. Right now it’s for the fairly tech savvy however I think in the next few years we’re going to see extremely versatile tools emerge.
Rather than spending hours on each keyframe, shots etc or spending $50K+ on cameras, we’re going to have the ability to become directors via prompts or other configs available in the future.
Right now the workflows are using MidJourney to create the scenes & then using Runway to create motion. This can be done for less than $50/mo if you’re just messing around, but you can get unlimited video generation access for as low as $170/mo.
I for one welcome our new AI creative overlords.
I’m hoping to create my own film or TV studio pumping out content… I’m sure you’ve seen how traditional cable has been integrated into our current digital world with dozens of subscriptions out there. I think this will actually eliminate piracy since we are giving everyday people access to tools which rival big studios and be able to offer well priced subscriptions or pay for access.
I just hope these massive AI film generating datasets don’t get sued into oblivion.
