An Innovative Learning Experience: Using AI in the end-to-end movie creation process

Pathways to achieving career success

AI in Action: Create a Movie through AI Tools.

When students embark on the ambitious project of creating a movie using AI tools, they not only engage in hands-on learning but also open themselves up to a world of endless possibilities.

Through self-study, they delve into the realm of AI technology, exploring its intricacies and potential applications. 

Action and Doing

Only action and doing can let students grasp the practical aspects of AI, honing their problem-solving skills and enhancing their creativity.

As they collaboratively work on the movie, they encounter challenges, analyze data, and experiment with different AI algorithms, deepening their understanding and expertise.

Each step forward represents not just progress in their cinematic endeavor but also personal growth and development, as they learn to navigate the uncharted territory of AI and discover the joys of applying their knowledge in a real-world context.

Ultimately, this self-directed journey of learning and doing paves the way for an innovative and impactful cinematic creation that exemplifies the remarkable synergy between self-study and active application.

We’re recruiting fifty exceptional students to participate in the production of a movie centered on AI. These students, who will be pursuing master’s degrees in fields like management, media, computer science, and psychology, will play a foundational role in the creation and ownership of this film. This project serves as an integral part of their educational journey. A renowned broadway actor, recognized with multiple awards, will join us to provide guidance. Additionally, several notable actors and actresses will feature in guest roles, enriching the production with their expertise and talent.

This program brings together students from multiple degrees of study, allowing them to apply their individual interests, passion and expertise to the project. Students will use, and optionally develop, a variety of Al tools in order to accomplish the goals of the project, encompassing all aspects of the movie creation process such as script writing; set and lighting design; music and effects creation; recording and post production; even acting and directing!

This project-based learning approach to education, combined with amazing advisors from various domains, makes connecting and collaborating across multiple disciplines a unique opportunity for students.



In a traditional university setting, students are expected to follow a standardized curriculum, regardless of their existing knowledge, interests, or future goals. However, our educational approach takes a different path. We offer a project-based education that empowers students to actively participate in shaping their learning experience.

Instead of being confined to predetermined coursework, students have the freedom to choose roles within projects that align with their interests. By immersing themselves in these projects, they not only gain practical experience but also encounter a multitude of questions and unknowns. In order to address these uncertainties, students construct a question tree—a structured framework that organizes their inquiries.

Through this process, students identify the specific knowledge they need to acquire and the skills they need to develop in order to navigate their project effectively. This personalized learning journey allows them to actively pursue the answers to their questions while also preparing themselves for their desired future endeavors.

In essence, our educational approach fosters a dynamic and engaging environment where students take ownership of their education, explore their passions, and build the necessary foundations to achieve their goals.

“The experience of learning has transferred my life. Through this highly integrated learning method and process of theory and practice, I have gained a lot of profound insights about life. I used to look at life flat. In the process of studying this degree, weekly reading, communication, sharing, discussion, practice, reflection… is a process of constantly returning from practice to theory, and landing again into practice in life. Through this process, I realized that life and life are three-dimensional, even intertwined in multiple times and spaces. This is not a conclusion of the mind, but an understanding. And this changed my consciousness and the way I saw life.”


“There are many challenges in this process. In the processes of these challenges, I have done a lot of things that I never thought I could, constantly developed my potential, improved my time scheduling and balance ability; have been more self-responsible, a larger and more stable inner space, a greater sense of certainty in facing difficulties, and love myself more. I think these are more important than the study of knowledge.”
