DIRECTOR & WRITER: Artificial Intelligence (AI)
As the world crumbles due to artificial intelligence (AI) taking over the world, siblings Emily, Lucy, and Jake engage in an intense discussion for a spot in the Safe Zone, which is the only place safe from the threat of AI.
As only one of member of the family can be admitted in the Safe Zone, the ones left behind are going to die.
In order to create this first of its kind short film, the producers used the AI chatbot ChatGPT to create the script and to make a director's shot list.
Through the prompt of the producers, ChatGPT was able to produce a 4-minute script and a shot list that the actors and the crew used in the production of this film. We were also able to ask ChatGPT to suggest specific instructions for the Director of Photography and camera operators (choice of camera lenses, camera movements and lighting requirements), recommend wardrobe preferences, and even give us specific prompts to let Dall-E 2 create a full storyboard.
ChatGPT is a prototype artificial intelligence chatbot developed by OpenAI which specializes in dialogue. The chatbot is a large language model fine-tuned with both supervised and reinforcement learning techniques.

We created this short film with the goal of showcasing how artificial intelligence and humans can collaborate and work hand in hand in order to produce quality content.
The short film also aims to share a sneak peek of what’s to come in creating stories and how humans and AI can co-exist in the creative field.
The Safe Zone tells the story of a world where AI takes over. With this story, we want to send a message that it is imperative to regulate artificial intelligence or sentient machines as we move forward to a more advanced civilization. Humans and AI can co-exist successfully if policies and regulations are in placed.
Above all, we want to entertain mankind and open their minds to the many stories that we can watch and experience as we embrace the union of the present and the future.
