In a startling revelation made throughout the press convention saying their strike, Hollywood actors disclosed that the studios are demanding possession of their AI replicas with none compensation—a proposition that feels paying homage to a dystopian narrative from the tv collection Black Mirror.
Duncan Crabtree-Eire, the chief negotiator for SAG-AFTRA, shared particulars of the Hollywood studios’ proposal, which was described by the Alliance of Movement Image and Tv Producers (AMPTP) as a “groundbreaking AI proposal” safeguarding the digital likenesses of actors belonging to SAG-AFTRA.
When questioned in regards to the proposal on the press convention, Crabtree-Eire expressed his incredulity, stating:
“Yesterday, they introduced us with this so-called ‘groundbreaking’ AI proposal. They instructed that our background performers ought to bear scanning, obtain fee for a single day’s work, and grant possession of that scan, their picture, and their likeness to the studios indefinitely. These studios would then have the appropriate to make the most of this digital illustration with none consent or compensation, on any future mission, for all eternity. In the event that they consider it is a groundbreaking proposal, I recommend they reevaluate their perspective.”
The mixing of generative AI has been a contentious subject within the ongoing negotiations between the 2 events, with its implications extending past the present actors’ strike and in addition enjoying a major position within the writers’ strike. SAG-AFTRA President Fran Drescher emphasised the urgency of the state of affairs in her opening assertion, warning, “If we fail to take a agency stand now, we’ll all face dire penalties. Our very existence is at stake, as we threat being changed by machines.”
The SAG-AFTRA strike is scheduled to start at midnight tonight, marking a pivotal second within the battle for honest therapy and the preservation of actors’ rights.
