We are announcing the next group of the 18th Film Spring Open Workshop. This time it’s the Artificial Intelligence Group in AV Media led by Jacek Nagłowski, AI expert, lecturer of our online courses.
The members of the group will work on short audiovisual forms based on their own ideas. The task will to be co-create with AI systems at every stage of development and implementation of the work: from the script, through the creation of intermediate assets, to the final work with sound. Since the action is to be co-creative, all elements of the work should be co-created or processed by AI, but their source may be both generated elements and elements produced or recorded in a traditional way (text, sound, static image and video).
During the FSO Workshop, participants will learn:
- advanced ways to interact with large language models (not only ChatGPT);
- the nuances of effective and controlled image generation (primarily Stable Diffusion in the Automatic1111 interface with additional use of MidJourney and Adobe Firefly in Photoshop);
- ways and tricks of using video generators (Gen-2, Pika, Deforum, Kaiber);
- ways to interact using TTS generators and music (Eleven Labs, Voice AI, Bark, Aiva);
- ways of experimenting together and discovering unexplored paths of cooperation with artificial intelligence.
Selected projects will be presented on the big screen during the final screening of the Film Spring Open Workshop
“I hope we will have fun together and freely hack AI in order to develop our human imagination”
– says Jacek Nagłowski, who will also support other groups of the 18th Film Spring Open Workshop with his knowledge and creative experience in the field of AI.
Jacek Nagłowski: philosopher, film producer and director, researcher and creator in the field of new media. He has produced nearly thirty documentaries and feature films, most of them international co-productions awarded at international festivals (10 x Grand Prix). His documentary “Gugara” (producer, co-writer, co-director, editor) won, among others, the Bronze Lajkonik and the TVP Award at the Krakow Film Festival, was selected for the ACID section of the Cannes Film Festival and was purchased by the Paris Museum of Contemporary Art Centre Pompidou.
The company he co-founded, Circus Digitalis, develops 3D digital imaging solutions. Since 2015 he has been working on virtual reality issues. Together with Milenia Fiedler and Iwona Pomianowska, he initiated a project to study the language of cinematic VR at the Film School in Łódź. He has been working on issues related to artificial intelligence since 2021.
We would like to remind you that Jacek Nagłowski will also lead the second edition of an online course devoted to the use of artificial intelligence in the creation process. The first part of the classes will take place virtually, the second – during the Film Spring Open Workshop.
To enroll in the Artificial Intelligence Group in AV Media, you do not need to take part in a previous online course. However, we encourage you to treat virtual classes as a starting point for developing projects during stationary workshops.
The 18th Film Spring Open is held in Krakow from 10th to 19th of October.
