The Crow: An AI Film that Won Cannes Short Film Festival

The film was made by Glenn Marshall by feeding video frames to OpenAI's CLIP.

Have a look at The Crow, an absolutely marvelous AI-made short movie created by AI Artist Glenn Marshall using OpenAI's CLIP, a neural network that efficiently learns visual concepts from natural language supervision.

The film tells the story of a dancer turning into a crow and is set in a bleak and post-apocalyptic-looking world generated by an AI. According to the artist, the film was made by feeding the video frames of Painted, a short live-action film, to CLIP and then promoting the system to generate a video of "a painting of a crow in a desolate landscape."

What's more, The Crow also won the recent Jury Award at the Cannes Short Film Festival, making the film eligible for submission to the prestigious BAFTA Awards.
