“The Crow” AI Dance Film

THE CROW is an amazing short film in which its AI-created animation transforms a dancer from the film PAINTER into a crow. The result is a haunting and compelling piece that follows the crow through its brief dance in a landscape of post-apocalyptic barrenness, to its inevitable demise. One of the most hauntingly beautiful and stunning projects to date -- and it's the first time an AI project has won at the Cannes Short Film Festival. Do not pass this up!
