See and hear synthetic actors talk about ‘AI-acting’, addressing many artists’ fears, namely losing artistic exclusivity because of emerging AI technology. Synthetic actors - generated with DALL•E 2, explain the differences between ‘traditional’ 3D-animated characters and them, ai-generated actors, as well as how artificial intelligence will affect acting careers in general soon.
In just a few seconds, OpenAI’s DALL•E 2 generated all the synthetic actors from a random set of pixel-noise just by resorting to its machine-learning model, following Arno Coenen and Rodger Werkhoven’s art direction in natural language. However, DALL•E 2 is not capable of generating animation. Therefore, Werkhoven and Coenen resorted to an AI built by D-ID. That AI generated all the movement and voices needed for the many minutes of lip-sync synthetic chit-chat which also takes just a couple of seconds to generate. Except for the ‘after effects’, everything else in this work has been exclusively achieved by AI.
