Recent advances in artificial intelligence (AI) seem to be making the headlines regularly, as ChatGPT and various art creation tools take the internet by storm.

Now, however, AI looks set to transform the film industry, with up-and-coming filmmaker Ahmed Al-Hamoud and Ahmed Kaky — an AI researcher from John Moores University — collaborating on an innovative AI technology that will transform the cinematic frame, blending creative ideas with technical insight.

At a recent meeting, the film commission noted that computer vision, deep learning, and robotics could aid film production, marketing, and distribution and help make the industry more competitive.

However, although the Saudi Film Commission looked favorably at the use of AI, they also observed that the technology could easily be used for counterfeiting and warned of stagnation if the software was used too frequently.
