Our machine overlords have come for our movie industry
« on: May 24, 2016, 09:45:30 pm »
From the department of - what the fuck did I just not even - the platform which gave us deepdream psychedellic landscapes brings one of the most unintentionally funny shorts I've ever watched. Cudos to the maniacs who actually shot it :lulz:

ETA: There must be potential conspiracy lulz to be had if someone were able to "decode" the "obscure symbolism" and realise that it's a viral, hypnotic pacifier, paving the way for a terminator scenario  :evil:

I watched it and wanted to just say something, but I need to watch it a few times with company first. It made my cortex itch BAD. I'm absolutely certain that the AI was constrained from violent storytelling, but the fact that the plot was coherent enough for me to sense that was in itself wild to have to acknowledge.

All of the portrayal and actual shooting/editing was topnotch. More later probably. That last line.... several really, were both dreamlike and brutally objective, but in this case the "storyteller" really was  TRULY disassociated.

This feels like the end of the world, I don't know, I got a really strong sense of deja vu just now.

Did the computer dictate the costuming? Because that was some wacky shit.

They're saying it wrote the script but I'm guessing it wrote the dialogue. I've read tons of movie scripts and dialogue is probably about 10% of most of them, the lions share being scene and action description and even camera and lighting direction in some. There was a link to the PDF of the script in the article I found this on but it was 404ing last night. I'd be interested to see it, tho.

It's worth noting I think that they said screenplay. That would be dialog with possible delivery notes, basic blocking, and scene description. I'll have to look into it.

I looked. Pdf of script has seemingly been pulled somehow and I can't find any archive. I DID find brief blocking notes and two articles mentioning the eyeball thing being an interpretation of the script.

Had to dig way more than I thought I would have to to find these. Think that the content of the script in its entirely is something that they don't want to share. I have no idea why, content maybe?

I dunno, made it to 2:39, then the non-sequiturs hit critical mass.  The regurgitated eyeball was cool, otherwise, no bones/stones to keep it together.

It's worth watching all the way through. One does kinda have to actively NOT look for intended, logical meaning and take it for an abstract both in plot and dialog. Weird thing is, the AI got much symbolism packed into the nonsense at least as well as humans that try to tap that kind of thinking. If I hadn't been informed that it was an AI that assembled this I would probably have never guessed. I really figured nonsense with a certain intent to sensible meaning was a strictly human thing. Starting to think I was wrong about that.

Machines can poetry,
if somewhat clunkily. :)

I may give it another shot.  Maybe I'm mistaken but it currently & counterintuitively seems like the most uncanny AI doesn't come from linear domains, as it seems it should be, like music or language.  I find convolutional approaches on 2D images are delivering more reliable results at the moment IMHO.  I admit feeling like this opinion may be on the verge of expressing my own catastrophic ignorance.

There's part of me that hopes the program that wrote this thing initiated the takedown. Damn meatbags trying to profit from it's hard work etc.

Fuck it, as far as I'm concerned, that's the story I'm telling. Fear the RIAA-AI or somesuch.

FRAPS might work?

Second ETA - If you get sued by the program, I'm not responsible but I will be amused.

Ugh, 30 second limit and watermarks on the free version, and I am not invested enough in this piracy to pay for anything.

Darn thing got all bashful; that, or it's really banking hard on the whole cognitive dissonance tip.  Now I'm intrigued :lulz:
