Amazon launches Storyteller to turn scripts into storyboards -- automagically

Amazon launches Storyteller to turn scripts into storyboards -- automagically | Create, Innovate & Evaluate in Higher Education | Scoop.it

Excerpt from review article by VentureBeat:
"Upload your script, choose some backgrounds, and magically created a professional-looking storyboard of your movie. Or the graphic novel version of your text-based anything.

Amazon Studios released Storyteller today to allow writers and filmmakers to quickly, easily — and cheaply — storyboard their scripts.

Roy Price, Amazon’s director of Studios said: “Storyteller provides a digital backlot, acting troupe, prop department, and assistant editor — everything you need to bring your story to life.”

You start by uploading a script to Amazon Studios — or by playing with one that’s already there. Then simply page through the script paragraph by paragraph. Storyteller will try to match up characters, props, and background with the words in each chunk of text, and it does a surprisingly good job.

But if you don’t like what Storyteller gives, you can choose from its library, or even upload your own custom background or characters. Currently, the software has a library of thousands of props, characters, and backgrounds..."

I'm scooping this one for myself so I can experiment with it.

 

I do digital storytelling with my English language students quite regularly and have played with many tools in the process. I'm particularly in favour of tools that enable collaborative work and the uploading of a variety of media as this means that varying levels of language learners can work together and yet still gain from the learning process.

Programmer creates 800,000 books algorithmically, starts selling them on Amazon | ExtremeTech | Create, Innovate & Evaluate in Higher Education | Scoop.it
A college professor has a patented system for algorithmically compiling data into book form. Thanks to this system, Amazon now has over 800,000 books for sale from his company.
Alfredo Corell's insight:

A huge project... I haven't already seen any of this "automatically generated books". I really hope professionals are still needed for conten curation and appropriate compiling data.
