How AI wrote a screenplay

Film industry datahound Stephen Follows secured a professional script development deal to create a feature film script entirely written by artificial intelligence (AI). To do this, he teamed up with  particle physicist and built a writers’ room filled with different AI writers, all there to write, create and (if called upon) ready to co-create with humans.

Follows says during his time on this project, he caught a glimpse of what the future may be like for the creative arts.

"It’s one in which we need to radically re-think our notions of creativity, authorship, intellectual property and what it means to be an artist. Everyone needs to be part of this conversation as many of the things we think of as self-evident are soon to be challenged."

Follows summarises what he discovered in this article. You can also find out more and see the AI in action at  the 7am Wednesday 7 December (NZ Time) webinar where Follows and physicist Eliel Camargo-Molina will give a live presentation at the opening of the Future of Film Summit 2022.
