AIlluminate is an ETC project that produces animation with the aid of AI. The project aims to integrate AI generative tools into the traditional 3D animation studio pipeline and explore the pros and cons of using AI tools. The team will isolate and test three different approaches to using AI, creating three versions of a film about the creation myth of Pangu, each in a different style. Along the way, the team will document the process at each stage of development.

Project Instructors: Ruth Comley, John Dessler
