The first AI filmmaker has arrived. Named Satori-5, the AI auteur is the brainchild of director Quinn Halleck and production studio Late Arrivals. Satori-5’s first short film is titled ./sigma_001. The film’s trailer premiered last night at “AI on the Lot” a convention hosted by AI LA, NVIDIA, Variety, and Late Arrivals with the goal of bringing together Hollywood thought leaders with AI technologists.
./sigma_001 follows an engineer (John D. Michaels) at a fictionalized big tech company who sneaks a skeptical journalist (Maria-Elena Laas) inside to interview what he believes is the first sentient AI (Chase Simone).
With new AI technologies emerging daily, the film highlights the possibilities, risks, and implications of how AI will shift society. True to its subject matter,./sigma_001 utilizes AI in every stage of its production process—from ideation to VFX to distribution—marking a significant step forward in the integration of AI into traditional creative workflows. Filmmaker Satori-5 will continue to experiment and refine these new techniques, with the ultimate goal of empowering storytellers to do more with less.
./sigma_001 is not just a film. It is a catalyst for a larger conversation about the implications and ethical considerations surrounding AI technology. Through an amalgamation of AI-driven creativity and human storytelling, ./sigma_001 challenges the viewers to reflect on their beliefs regarding the potential impact of AI in the creative process.
Director Quinn Halleck emphasizes the importance of embracing these new tools with care, stating, “as a society, it’s important we embrace these new tools intelligently and look to how AI can amply artists rather than dismantle them.”
As the world eagerly awaits the release of ./sigma_001, audiences can expect a visually striking film that challenges their perceptions, stimulates introspection, and contributes to the ongoing dialogue on AI’s role in our future. The teaser trailer is expected to release this Monday, May 22, 2023, at Cannes Film Festival’s Marché du Film CogX panel.
