"The Shocking Truth About AI in Hollywood - Is it a Blessing or Curse?"

– The use of generative AI in Hollywood is a polarizing topic, with some finding it fascinating and others terrifying.

Director Scott Mann's tech company, Flawless, was inspired by the need to improve dubbing in films 

– after a foreign dub of one of his movies didn't match the mouth movements, leading to a lack of immersion in the story.

– Mann approached scientists at the Max Planck Institute in Germany to adapt generative AI for the film industry, resulting in the creation of Flawless.

Flawless used AI to change an actress's mouth movements in the film "Fall" to achieve a PG-13 rating instead of an R rating, 

– highlighting the practical applications of AI in Hollywood.

– Some Hollywood professionals, like actress LaNisa Frederick, express fear and uncertainty about the impact of generative AI on the industry.

– Justine Bateman, a filmmaker and computer scientist, criticizes generative AI for lacking artistic creativity and being reliant on past data.

– Concerns arise regarding AI systems learning from existing TV shows and movies without proper consent and compensation for actors and writers.

– Tech firm Storia uses AI to generate storyboards based on scripts, with the potential to mimic the styles of famous filmmakers.
