Tyler Perry’s Studio Expansion Plans Hindered By OpenAI’s Sora Tool

While Perry admits to utilising AI in two upcoming films, he does not feel pressured to use it in all his productions. He is torn between considering the bottom line of his business and the welfare of the people in the industry.

Filmmaker Tyler Perry’s ambitious plans to expand his studios in Atlanta have hit a roadblock with the introduction of OpenAI’s new tool, Sora.

The tool has the capability to create visually complex shots of subjects and their backgrounds, which has left Perry in awe. His intended expansion of 12 soundstages has been put on hold indefinitely.

Perry acknowledges the benefits of Sora’s technology, such as lowering location and set costs. However, he is also aware that it may result in job losses within the industry.

He expressed his concern for everyone in the industry, including actors, grip and electric, transportation, sound, and editors, as he believes this technology will impact every corner of the industry.

The filmmaker recognises that the use of AI in filmmaking will be a game changer, allowing for the production of pilots at a fraction of the cost.

This may lead companies to opt for the route of lesser costs, potentially resulting in job losses. Perry is deeply concerned about the impact on the people he has trained and brought up in the industry.
