Title: A.I. Screenwriter
Post by: Chiprocks1 on June 16, 2016, 07:17:10 pm
AI Writes a MOVIE! (and it's terrible)

Leave the writing to professionals you dumb f*cking A.I.!! This really isn't news. We already had A.I. try to write a handful of movies before. The A.I. went by the name of M. Night Shyamalan. This is the only explanation as to why all his scripts suck.  ;)

You know, a couple weeks ago on Scriptchat I was mentioning that I think AI will become a screenwriting tool in the future, especially VR movies and so on that need to react on the fly to the viewer/player's changes, but it would require a buttload of human work beforehand.  But I can see AI becoming useful in the process of screenwriting, helping flesh out scenes, outlines, that sort of thing, providing feedback and so on to the writer, like having a writing partner/bounce person built into the software.  For example, I tend to fall into patterns, it would be nice for the computer to tell me "this plot is similar to 3 other scripts of yours," "you don't have any scenes with more than two characters," and ask questions that I maybe wouldn't think of at the moment ("what would happen if you combined these two scenes?").  When I make an outline, it could pair up my set-ups and pay-offs and alert me when something doesn't work, if I remove something from the scirpt and want to replace it with something else, it could tell me everything I'm missing and need to do to fill that gap, etc...
