More About Face Swap:
This short film may not feature internationally recognized A-list movie stars. But with the help of machine learning AI algorithms, our actors may seem a bit familiar. A cautionary science fiction satire, FACE SWAP is arguably the first narrative film using the “deepfakes” process as a storytelling tool.
FACE SWAP takes a satirical look at the imminent new reality ushered in by the advent of face swapping apps known as “Deepfakes”. It poses the question: In today’s world, do our faces still belong to us? Inspired by the broader ramifications of newly accessible machine learning algorithms and face recognition AI, we set out to create a parody portraying one way things could evolve. In an age in which the reliance on our eyes and ears for the truth has become exponentially more fragile, we hope our film serves as a social commentary on the looming implications of such technologies – the good, the bad and the ugly (or beautiful, in the case of our face swappers).
