From imagination to reality

Our students of the AI Tools elective have the final objective of the course to create an audiovisual piece with a free theme.

For this trailer of a fictional movie, our student María Gálvez used ChatGPT as an assistant director for the elaboration of the text. Then, thanks to ElevenLabs, she created a voiceover (yes, the voice of the trailer is completely AI-generated) to accompany the images and video, also AI-generated, by Pika, HeyGen and D-ID. Notably, it was made in mid-2023, demonstrating pioneering, cutting-edge talent in this technology.

Our goal is to be at the forefront of this technology at all times.

New tools may appear or obsolete tools may disappear. We adapt and improve to provide students with the best options at all times, so it is difficult to give a definitive list. Currently, some of the main tools in use are ChatGPT, BingChat, StableDiffusion, Midjourney, DALL-E 3, ElevanLabs, Pika, D-ID, HeyGen, among many others.
