Here’s Your Free Pass to “The Carnival of the Ages” Courtesy of Justin Hackney and AI

Justin Hackney, a London-based CD/director and founder of the AI community Realdreams.io, is on a mission to share and democratize generative creative tools. With this short film, he “unveils a cinematic odyssey through time and space.”

Justin Hackney: “I used DALL_E and Midjourney generations as style references to make my shot list for the scenes, I then put them into Runway Gen2 with slightly altered text prompts to generate the video clips you see in this video.

As a filmmaker with 15+ years of experience, I’ve never been more excited to be part of such a pivotal moment in the industry, where creativity evolves like never before, and we’re given a glimpse into the future possibilities of content creation and simulated realities.

Growing up, The Twilight Zone was a massive inspiration, so I used ElevenLabs to train the AI narration on Westbrook Van Voorhis, who narrated the pilot episode of the series.

“As we venture into these uncharted territories, it’s crucial that we join forces, explore these tools together, and push the boundaries of what’s possible. So, fellow pioneers of the digital frontier, let’s embrace these innovations and embark on a collective journey to redefine creativity and reshape the future of storytelling.”
