Skynet is here.
In the worst killing-creativity-in-the-name-of-the-dollar idea heard in years a startup company says they have a technology that will tell movie studios which scripts will make money and which won’t. In minutes.
According to Scriptbook Founder Nadira Azermai the technology no longer requires the Studio to even read the scripts: (No, seriously)
A film studio has thousands of scripts and they have a huge backlog. All the scripts need to be read and assessed and we can do that at a speed of light.
So through some sorcery this Scriptbook in which even the name is void of creativity or passion (hmm….I’ll name my Company ___book because that worked once) will scan through these scripts and a computer will decide whether they are hitting the right story AND emotional beats. Maybe someone should read these poor people a script about John Henry.
It will also tell Studios which scripts are profitable and which aren’t once ran against the other 2,000 scripts in their database. Which you know the Studios will follow because the evidence is Adam Sandler.
We went back to what makes a story great. How a story should be structured and the key elements, what kind of dialog, what kind of journey is the hero on. There are certain rules to stories even if you go back to Shakespeare and the three act play.
So basically this new tech filters out anything unique. Get ready for a life of formulaic, must-hit-that-emotional-checkpoint movies created solely to collect cash, world. Why look for something new and exciting? Why look for a game changer? Nobody wants read!!!!
Scriptbook has raised about 1.1 Million in funding this year from people who hate originality and puppies. They are already working with four Hollywood studios to test the product. The story comes from CNBC, the black rage comes from me. Is there anyone out there with a soul who actually likes this idea? Can you tell us why? Stay tuned for more updates on the end, GeekNation.
