Despite the recent emergence of more user friendly artificial intelligence software, the creative industries are only just beginning to scratch the surface of its possibilities, and it still remains a largely untapped resource in the world of music video production.
Working with Midjourney, an AI program that creates images from textual descriptions, director Tristan Holmes of Doomsday Entertainment created this intriguing music video for Disturbed's new track 'Bad Man', by entering descriptive prompts to extract more than 10,000 frames of artwork.
The software curated an exquisite selection of grotesque and uncannily realistic ‘paintings’ from Holme's descriptions in a mere matter of days, an immense amount of artwork which would have taken years to produce to this level of detail by hand.
With every image carefully crafted and stitched together, the film has a unique, nightmarish style that sits somewhere between heavy metal album art, Francis Bacon-esque existentialism and infernal military oil paintings that perfectly encapsulates the track's spirit and ideology.
