David Hasselhoff stars in hyper-surreal short-film about A.I – Written by an Algorithm! Screening as part of the 48 Hour Film Challenge at the Sci-Fi London Film Festival

 David Hasselhoff’s larger than life character will be appearing as The Hoffbot, in BAFTA-winning director Oscar Sharp’s latest short film, IT’S NO GAME.  The film sees the former Baywatch and Knight Rider star being controlled by an A.I, named Benjamin, an algorithm specifically designed to write movies.

Eerily verging on the surreal truth, the critically acclaimed director used the afore-mentioned creative algorithm, Benjamin, to write the film. Benjamin was also pivotal in the creation of Sharp’s previous critically acclaimed short film, Sunspring, alongside AI Researcher, Ross Goodwin.

 The lines of reality and fiction become blurred in It’s No Game, as the notion of an algorithm writing films quickly hits home, considering the film was in fact, written by an algorithm.  With creative thinking supposedly being one of the defining traits of humanity, how soon before these definitions are broken down and we are no longer able to tell the difference between AI and human thinking?

It’s No Game was made as part of the 48 Hour Film Challenge at the Sci-Fi London Film Festival – Running from from 27 April – 6 May https://sci-fi-london.com/
