It is no secret that in recent years the cinema has been experiencing a serious crisis of ideas. At the box office, Hollywood blockbusters fail every now and then, thanks to which analysts have come to the conclusion that viewers are fed up with the same plot moves and numerous sequels, remakes and reboots. Despite this, screenwriters still rarely delight moviegoers with truly original ideas.|
According to The Next Web , computers may soon come to the rescue of studio bosses. British director Oscar Sharp posted on the Web a 9-minute short film Sunspring , scripted by artificial intelligence Benjamin . AI was created by fellow film maker - scientist Ross Goodwin from New York University. Based on the analysis of the plots of several dozen popular sci-fi hits of the 80s and 90s, Benjamin managed to create his own script.
The main roles in the short film were played by Thomas Middleditch, Elizabeth Gray and Humphrey Ker. Sunspring , of course, can hardly be called a masterpiece of sai-fi, but Sharp himself rightly emphasizes that the completely ridiculous dialogues of Benjamin reflect the cliches of Hollywood scriptwriters. For example, the latter tend to make the heroes say the phrases "I don't know" or "I'm not sure" in almost any difficult situation.
Let the short film Sharpe represent a natural theater of the absurd, but it gave the audience the hope that one day artificial intelligence will be able to present the world with a script worthy of the " Oscar " award.
