Day 418

Continuation of yesterday's writing:

AI platforms such as ChatGPT have the ability to write a 10 page script in a matter of seconds. As AI progresses, it has the ability to reach even greater heights. However, sometimes a good script comes from its’ humanity, not just the correct words on a sheet of paper, a fact the WGA has been fighting for these past few months.

In the era of remake after remake, creativity is as valuable, and rare as ever. Harpeth Hall students have likely heard of the remakes of Snow White, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Scream, or a myriad of other Hollywood blockbusters coming out in the next year. The strike itself is a catalyst for these kinds of remakes, not requiring studios to come up with any sort of new or original script for a movie.

Remakes are not an inherently bad thing. They can give new life to otherwise outdated pieces of work, and can be extremely nostalgic for people who saw and enjoyed the original. The question becomes, do remakes hinder the creativity of the film industry? And more importantly, are they essentially created to take the WGA out of the equation? No one can know for sure.

As the strike ends, Hollywood is left with a final question: What lies ahead for the future of the film industry?
