Interview with Rain Rannu, the director of "Child Machine", interviewer Andrei Liimets.
"The driving force for me to do this movie was that I wanted to create an AI that acts like a machine and not like a human."
9-year old girl gets lost in a remote bog and finds herself trapped in a secret bunker where an AI-startup is nearing the completion of a superintelligent AI. Both the girl and the AI want to escape. Child Machine is an AI-gone-wrong story that’s authentic, fun and interesting for all ages. The film is one of the first narrative feature films ever to have real AI-generated visual effects, made using cutting edge AI technologies that have only been in existence for a few months.
Rain Rannu is an Estonian film director, entrepreneur and investor. Rain has written and directed a road-movie „Chasing Ponies“ (2016), a narrative virtual reality short “ Beqaa VR “ (2018) and critically acclaimed start-up comedy “Chasing Unicorns” (Black Nights FF, 2019).
