FACE SWAP

Production /
Starring /

A guy convinces his wife to try out a new A.I. technology to spice up their sex life, but he ends up getting a bit more spice than he bargained for.

For a few seconds, we really thought that George Clooney and Rachel McAdams were truly involved in this film’s production. It’s that shear hesitation alone that truly makes us wonder where the future is weirdly heading. Face swapping technology became a popular tool in creating fake celebrity adult films, but also gained much popularity in dozens of daily apps such as Snap Chat. This 5-minute short may be the first to utilize machine-learning face swapping technology as a storytelling tool.

The original concept for this short was sparked about a year ago when machine-learning face swapping algorithms became publicly accessible. While this new technology was causing a ruckus with internet trolls using it to generate fake celebrity porn, it got our minds reeling about just how far this could go. We were inspired to interweave it into a storyline that explores the potential real-world implications, with the ultimate goal of revisiting the subject in a long-form film project.
