The best way to learn a new technology is to make something with it.
I signed up for a 48 hour competition, sponsored by RunwayML, Coca Cola and YouTube and I created a short movie in 5 hours. These are the things I learnt.
I created a "movie" in 5 hours and I spent $50 while being amateur in movie making.
For someone like me, to have a similar result without A.I, they would need to spend at least $3k and 48 hours. At least.
If someone spent more time and knew what they were doing, just by using A.I they could had made a short movie that the non-A.I equivalent would have been at least $50k and 1 week of work.
What I am trying to say is that the benefits are exponential once you start using A.I.
Now, for the bad news.
It is EXTREMELY difficult to create scenes with the same character. If you watch my movie, you'll see that the main character keeps changing.
It also very difficult to create exactly the shots that you want. I kept changing my script because I couldn't get the right shots.
Check out some videos I posted on twitter. Hilarious stuff.
A.I is terrible when it comes to human faces that have to show emotions. Just terrible.
Creating scripts with A.I is laughable. Plot holes, unimaginative stories, confusing endings.
Having said that, I plan to create a big movie just to try more technologies (like lip syncing) as I believe the space is going to be huge.
You can see the short movie here.

Ironically, I've chosen a different name - closer to my original idea.
Without further ado, let me present you with HeyFire.
The decision for …
You know what takes the most time when building a Startup? Finding the freaking name and an available domain.
A year ago, I hired some amazing designers and engineers and we brainstormed around a financial product with the code name HelloFire. Fire stands for Financial Independence - Retire …
It was 2013 and I was in San Francisco reading the news about a European program that was going to "fund" new VCs. This would have been the beginning of the Startup community in Greece.
The issue is that most of these "VCs", were cookie-cutters: no Entrepreneurial background, no investing …
No boring ordinary stories.
