Face Swap Short Film

“You pick your facades, yet?” This isn’t so much science fiction, more science reality, because we’re closer than ever to this technology actually existing. But it’s still fun to see them play with this technology concept in a short film anyway. Face Swap is a fun short film made by filmmakers David Gidali & Einat Tubi, inspired by (and utilizing) the “deepfakes” AI technology from the internet. It’s the same tech that Jordan Peele use to create his infamous Obama speech. A couple decides to try out the Face Swap service, choosing Rachel McAdams and George Clooney as their temporary “fantasy” personas. The short (actually) stars Troy Caylak, Megan Gray, and Noelle Urbano. This is another cautionary tale, of course, but it’s also a mesmerizing and clever look at where technology is taking us – and some of the worrisome implications of it. ›››
