Go behind the scenes to learn from Sundance Advisors in our Conversations from the Labs series. This collection of videos will deepen your understanding of all the creative disciplines that are supported through our Labs including Feature Film Directing and Writing, TV Writing, Emerging Media, Documentary, Producing, Film Music, and Theater.

In this video from our New Frontier Lab, the groundbreaking artist Amelia Winger-Bearskin recounts her experience working at the intersection of AI and storytelling across applications ranging from poetry, to graphic style transfer and generative music. She shares her experience looking at antecedent technologies to gain insight into the prospective impact of emerging technologies. And she invites us to consider incorporating ethical dependencies in software coding as a means to help grow out of a colonial mindset and craft our technology to benefit future generations.

Other conversations in the series include those with editor Dylan Tichenor, actor/director Ed Harris, writer/director Karyn Kusama, writer/director/producer Kasi Lemmons, cinematographer Stephen Goldblatt, and others.
