Artificial intelligence is on the rise. If ChatGPT and Midjourney fill the empty space that the general public is interested in, certain businesses will put their services on their side. This is how Netflix and Wit Studio handled a short film made using artificial intelligence.
Artificial intelligence will address a fundamental flaw in the animation business: "Artists are no longer recognized?"
A critical issue in the animation industry is addressed by artificial intelligence.
Wit Studio is a major player in the Japanese animation scene. They are well-known for directed the first three seasons of Attack on Titan, the first season of Vinland Saga, and later Spy Family. They are currently working on several animated shorts, including one called The Dog and the Boy. The Dog and the Boy's humour?
Wit Studio, Rinna, and Creators Base have all launched this year's project. The goal of the latter is to increase the number of anime users on the platform while also "giving creators the time and resources necessary for the production of anime over time," according to Hiroshi Tanaka, the director of photography of Dog and Boy.
At the end of the short film, we can see how the creative process was created: the artist first created a sketch by hand from which the artificial intelligence was inspired, which he then refined by hand.
"Artists are no longer credited?"
Despite this initiative of great intention, it isn't unanimous. Jingna Zhang is one of the well-known Chinese photographers who spoke out about the subject on Twitter:
Images derived from artificial intelligence like this are evidently relaunching the debate on copyright. Netflix unwittingly brought the bottom line to the surface.
