Storyline

Against all odds, Sophia Baker just scored her dream interview at the world-famous Semaphore Animation Studios -- who'd have thought a fan edit of one of their hit films could land her a shot at a job? But when she meets arch, mysterious executive Anne Palladon, she soon learns all is not as she expects behind the curtain. Every instinct Sophia has ever had about art in filmmaking is about to be challenged. Based on Nebula, Hugo and World Fantasy Award-winning author Ken Liu's short story of the same name, Real Artists asks a poignant question: In a dystopian near-future where big data, AI and natural language processing learn and create quickly and at massive scale, what role can a single artist play? Is Sophia a creative rebel who can make a difference? Or is the situation more serious than that? Written by Production team

Quotes

Anne Palladon: In film school you probably learned that a movie is an intricate emotion-generation machine. We offer our audiences a perfectly crafted experience. We give them moments of laughter, perfectly oriented against occasions for pity. There must be exhilarating highs followed by terrifying, precipitous drops. We call these responses the "Emotional Chord". So, Sophia - how do you think we make sure our movies get the desired response?
Sophia Baker: You try and empathize with the audience... And wouldn't you try to ...
