While we have seen some somber predictions on how AI will impact the creative industry, we also see some incredibly innovative uses of AI image generation. One of those uses is the ability to create real-feeling storyboards or “DVD grabs”. They look realistic to the point that they remove the need to contract full sets to create impressive shoots.
Redditor jarts uploaded a set of ‘DVD grabs’ from a movie called “Kurukshetra Hovarabord Showdown” (1984). In a clever title, jarts named the collection “Kurukshetra Hovarabord Showdown (1984) was a Bollywood attempt to cash in on the skateboarding craze sweeping the nation. It featured an all-star cast of characters in an epic hoverboard race across the Jalebi desert”. I fell for it and turned to IMDB to look for the movie. It could have easily been a Bollywood production of Mad Max, and I thought it would be a fun, trash video to watch.
