"Spaceship Day": artificial intelligence writes a children's sci-fi short film screenplay


Austin M Connell treats us to a short film with screenplay written by animation generated by artificial intelligence.  Call it “Spaceship Day”.


Three kids in school bicker for status as to who gets to ride the spaceship and in what position.
   
Nevermind that the great beyond is undefined.  Will the spaceship use continuous acceleration to generate artificial gravity and use time dilation so that the kids reach the limits of the universe in 50 years?  Well, sorry, space keeps expanding.

This is the screenwriting analogue of Mozart’s “A Musical Joke”.
