In early 2028, will an AI be able to generate a full high-quality movie to a prompt?

IE "make me a 120 minute Star Trek / Star Wars crossover". It should be more or less comparable to a big-budget studio film, although it doesn't have to pass a full Turing Test as long as it's pretty good. The AI doesn't have to be available to the public, as long as it's confirmed to exist.

AI "brain rot" videos seeing a lot of success on TikTok. This one has 1.3 million hearts and counting.

max joe justice trailer and we're only in 2024 Q2

this could easily do a die hard cheesy blow em up action film in 2028

bought Ṁ500 NO from 34% to 32%

I'm listening to this interview with Luma Chief Scientist Jiaming Song: He claims Luma will achieve real-time video generation in less than a year.

I made a market on it:

bought Ṁ50 YES

my credence is 64% yes

Four years from Jan 1 to resolution. 1/8 of that is gone. Who is willing to claim we have advanced 12.5% of the way to a full high-quality movie to a prompt in that time?

I might remind you that Sora has still not been released.

runway just released gen-3 like yesterday

and do you think that is 12.5% of the way?

not really answerable,. Also, progress will accelerate

bought Ṁ500 NO from 34% to 32%
bought Ṁ500 NO

We will see.

seeing what sora/runway-gen-3 is producing, + latest lipsync ex + elevenlabs voice + udio/suno audio

you could have a ML pipeline stitching it all together

short 4-8 second shots to look like StarTrek II : Wrath of Kahn,

I guess, is the question asking , can it do a 'big budget' movie of 2028, or 'big budget' of 2024,2010,1980s etc..

bought Ṁ500 NO from 32% to 31%

I'm a little confused by the question., I totally think SORA and SOTA models and SOTA voice models have gone probably about 30-40% of the way here. Obviously that number is a bit arbitrary, because the final 2% is the hardest.

bought Ṁ500 NO from 33% to 31%

Each 1% should be equally easy, or you haven't divided up the percentages correctly.

Which is why claiming the models are 30-40% there is obvious nonsense.

@DavidBolin I think there's a lot of use in defining fractional progress in ways other than "ease" or "amount of resources put in to get there." E.g., the notion that the last 0.1-5% is the hardest has been very useful to explain delays in other AI technologies like self-driving cars. There, % is something like fatalities or collisions per mile driven or another safety metric, which seems easier to define than film production but not by too much compared to other creative pursuits (e.g., revenue something would generate if released, quality rating from human evaluators, time or wages of human labor that it displaces).

Regardless, we are not "30-40% there" by any sensible metric, even one with easier rather than harder parts.

The best argument for yes I have seen so far.

unfortunately we're plateauing with gpt-4o

Forty total GPTs is now called plateauing??

Is it easier to make a movie than to take an order for a cheeseburger?

bought Ṁ100 NO at 35%

NO holders, it's still not too late. Swich sides now.

3 traders bought Ṁ1,650 NO

What about this is particularly more impressive than video models released a few months ago, like Sora?

It's way faster and cheaper.

But that's not my point, Sora ought to have been enough to flip the witty NO holder.

bought Ṁ250 NO from 34% to 33%
bought Ṁ1,000 NO

We're talking 3 1/2 years to go from this to coherent 2h hour films that has high quality writing, music, and dialogue from one text prompt.

Accurate. Welcome to the futur.

bought Ṁ250 NO from 36% to 35%

No, the stated benchmark was Star Wars / Star Trek, so it will not require high quality writing and dialogue.
