Filmmakers Create Short Films Using OpenAI's Sora

Posted on March 28, 2024

Earlier this month OpenAI shocked the Internet with the incredible graphics from its text-to-video model called Sora. OpenAI describes Sora as an "AI model that can create realistic and imaginative scenes from text instructions."

The quality of the video was good enough that it had people contemplating how something like Sora could be used to change the film and TV industry. Could people create TV shows from home? Would movie industry jobs be threatened? These were the types of questions being asked.

Now, OpenAI has released several short movies created using Sora. OpenAI worked with filmmakers on the project. OpenAI says in the announcement, "Since we introduced Sora to the world last month, we’ve been working with visual artists, designers, creative directors and filmmakers to learn how Sora might aid in their creative process."

One of the short films is about a man with a balloon for a head. It was created by shy kids, a Toronato-based multimedia company. Shy kids says, "We now have the ability to expand on stories we once thought impossible."

Here's the Air Head short film. You can view more of the short films on OpenAI.

OpenAI's text-to-video tool is not currently available for the public to use. OpenAI is also the company behind ChapGPT.
