AI in Filmmaking with Philip Shane

Join Philip Shane, an award-winning documentary filmmaker with over three decades in the industry, for an enlightening Q&A discussion on leveraging ChatGPT in documentary filmmaking. This session, drawn from Shane's interactive workshop, will delve into the myriad ways AI can transform the pre-production, production, and post-production stages of documentary making. Participants will gain insights into using ChatGPT for everything from ideation and research to storyboarding, data analysis, and even marketing. 


Shane, known for his work on films like 'BEING ELMO' and 'DANCING IN JAFFA', will share his expertise on incorporating AI tools for enhanced creativity and efficiency, while also addressing their limitations and strategic use. Ideal for filmmakers at any skill level, this Q&A is a unique opportunity to explore the integration of AI in your filmmaking journey, inspired by Shane's rich experience in both film production and as the host of the science podcast WHAT THE IF? Embrace this chance to understand how ChatGPT can innovate and streamline your documentary projects.

Monthly Table Reads

The Script Incubator meets on Zoom every third Monday from 7:00-9:00 p.m. to discuss the group’s work, which includes TV pilots, features, shorts, and web series. For 2024, we are reviewing each other's work "table read" style, in which we will read aloud up to 3 script portions of 1-10 pages each. No homework! We are also seeking actors to bring the parts alive so the scriptwriters can hear their words aloud. Each Zoom session will be recorded so the screenwriter can go back and see what worked and what didn't. And all participants will be encouraged to give feedback and support each other during the meetings.
