Nice of Fandor to articulate your opinion for you.
While there are obvious challenges with this technology and technique, Rogue One, Guardians of the Galaxy 2, and Blade Runner 2049 all proved that there are some interesting things one can do. I don't think anyone wants to see two hours of a CGI young DeNiro try and relive some past cinematic glory, but your dismissiveness (or rather, Fandor's dismissiveness) seems premature.
That demo video is awful.
For $33,000? No.
Then NoFilmSchool posts it with lazy credit to the author and acts like they came up with the article on their own.
"Nelson Carvajal's latest video essay for RogerEbert.com" needs to come much sooner in the article.
It'd be nicer if they gave proper credit to Lessons from the Screenplay in the headline instead of making it seem like No Film School created the content.
