This is pretty vague. What kind of VFX are we talking about here? Sky replacements? Face replacements? Animated characters? Simplified chroma-keying? Saying "We're going to be delivering you a tool to create AI powered VFX" is almost meaningless without a little more information.
I mean if Joe Russo and Steven Spielberg are onboard that's a pretty great start but I'm not holding my breath that this will be any kind of game changer.
What? Is this true? Where is it in Resolve. I've never noticed it.
I'd imagine if it knows where frame 1 is and frame 3 is it can interpolate a pretty accurate position for frame 2.
What about movies with less obvious stakes? What would the logline be for Boyhood? My Dinner with Andre? Lost in Translation? Before Sunrise and Before Sunset? Tree of Life?
She makes some really good points. What if someone doesn't want to work for Lasseter? Now they either have to do so against their will or they have to quit their job? Neither seems like a great option.
That being said I'm not sure where to draw the line with these famous people who do bad things (Lasseter, Spacey, Affleck, etc). Are they never allowed to work again? Or just not allowed to work in the film industry again? Also what's the statute of limitations on someones bad behaviour. If they did something when they were 9 should we blacklist them 50 years later? How about if they were 18? Or 30? How about allowing for people making bad decisions in the past but evolving and changing as human beings (Kevin Hart, James Gunn, etc.)
I've been thinking about this kind of stuff a lot lately.
I have enormous respect for Emma Thompson in any case.
