It is up to Ishiguro and Ogawa to “teach” Erica how to act, which they did by applying the principles of the acting method to artificial intelligence. Speaking to Hollywood reporter, the supervisor and producer of visual effects for the film Sam Khoze, explained: “In other acting methods, the actors involve their own life experiences on paper. But Erica has no life experiences. It was created from scratch to play the role. We had to simulate their movements and emotions through one-on-one sessions, such as controlling the speed of their movements, talking about their feelings, and training character development and body language. “
Originally, Erica was supposed to make her big screen debut in another movie, slated to be directed by American history XTony Kaye, but scheduling conflicts meant that the project was abandoned. So far there is no deputy director to yes, nor have human co-stars been announced, but the producers already have some images under their belts. They anticipate that the rest will skyrocket in June 2021.
This is not the first time that film studios have gotten creative with their casting. Carrie Fisher made an appearance on Skywalker’s rise thanks to some pretty advanced visuals, while the next Looking for jack He posthumously elevated James Dean to an important supporting role thanks to CGI. Since much of Hollywood is in limbo due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, Erica shows that her superstars can probably replace themselves more easily than she thought.
