Testing AI tools
A little test project in the context of a prompt challenge for White Mirror. Task: bring Frankenstein's monster to life in a whole new way.
I used Midjourney to create a style reference and the character. For the moving images I used runway gen-1 wich I fed with stock video footage and used the midjourney image as a style reference. ChatGPT wrote those meaningful thoughts and Altered gave that nice voice. Music is made in AIVA and I topped it up with some sound design when I edited the whole thing in runway. There I also put that color theme on the whole film and that funky vhs look. Voila!
Style reference created
„The Stapler: A Tale of Invention & Destruction“
After a futuristic stapler appears on George W. McGill's desk in 1866, it becomes a ubiquitous tool in offices and homes around the world. However, scientists experimenting with the stapler's ability to connect things eventually lead to unintended consequences ...
I was playing around with several #ai tools lately and the outcome is a film I am far away to get the budget for (Would be thrilled to shoot this for real though) I used ChatGPT (wich needed my help a lot to make that story work) All imagery is made with #midjourney Moving images made with #runway gen-1, Kaiber and Studio D-ID … The Voiceover is also an ai tool named Murf … Edit, Sound Design and Graphics I built with my all time favorites: After Effects & Premiere Pro. The whole thing took me 5 days, producing tons of footage, testing stock footage and filming myself (and an apple) and finally letting the frustration go that my videos didn’t come out as the nice Midjourney images … And so I just went with the flow. Voilà!

The future of this is gonna be so exciting!
