Air Head

Something Unique

Call To Imagination — Jun 2024

Experimenting with OpenAI's text-to-video model

This is the short story of a man with a literal balloon for a head. Air Head was made by ShyKids as their first experiment with OpenAI's text-to-video model, Sora. The challenge was to achieve consistency from generation to generation and successfully paint a portrait of a single character using this tool.

The 1-minute and 21-second clip was also made with a combination of traditional filmmaking techniques and post-production editing to achieve the look of the final picture. You can watch this behind-the-scenes video that gives you a look into the process, techniques, and thinking behind this experiment.
