Automating Long-form Storytelling
Long-form storytelling has always been a time-consuming and challenging task. However, with the recent advancements in artificial intelligence, it is becoming possible to automate this process. While there are some tools available that can generate text, there is still a need for contextualization and keeping track of the story's flow, which is not feasible with current token limits. However, as AI technology progresses, it may become possible to contextualize and keep track of a long-form story with a single click.
Several commenters mentioned that the tech is already available to automate long-form storytelling to some extent. One approach is to feed text to an API that can break it down into scenes and then use GPT to convert the scenes into prompts for a tool like Midjourney. However, this process is not user-friendly yet, and there is still room for improvement in terms of generating consistent and high-quality images.
Some commenters mentioned that it may take a few months or a year to have a reliable automated solution that can produce detailed storyboards with image prompts. However, there is a consensus that the necessary technology is already available, and it's a matter of combining the various tools into a pipeline that can produce long-form storytelling with minimal human intervention. As such, it may be faster for someone to learn how to build a tool themselves than to wait for a third party to release a reliable solution.
