“The Future from an Alternate Perspective” Explainer
Any five-minute deep-dive into the complexities of AI risks becoming a snooze-fest but Seattle animation director/illustrator Reece Parker and the Trifilm crew keep this film for Microsoft engaging with an array of animation techniques.
Reece Parker: “The story follows our main character Luis as he tries to clearly explain the complexities and nuances of language and the challenges of teaching AI to thoroughly understand it.
“A massive project, an incredibly talented team, and a little bit of luck to get to the finish line. So thankful to my fellow artists and friends who helped pull this off.”
