S4 E102 mAIchinima: Nina & Prelude to Dust (Nov 2023)

Not strictly machinima, but something we've named mAIchinima! This week, we discuss two films using generative AI to create narrative works.  In both cases, the techniques employed emphasize the sound - music or voice acting - but whilst one is intentional, the other is not.  We share our thoughts on these works and discuss some of the current limitations and benefits observed, which leads us into a timely discussion about style in filmmaking.  We also discuss some recent developments in AI for creatives, such as the role of Glaze masking and Nightshade corrupting tools.
