Idea: Gender inequality in the film industry
Like many other industries, film industry has been male dominated. Women only represented 16% of directors working on the 100 highest-grossing films in 2020. People like directors, screenwriters, investors who hold power are still mostly men. And this chart from BBC shows the proportion of words spoken by characters with more than 100 words, show how much it has been male-dominated.
So we wondered, how it would look and feel if the film industry is female dominated or at least eqaul.
Concept: What if the film industry is dominated by women?
We chose some famous films with most stereotyped, cliche male main character in it. And we recreated its poster to look like woman is the main character.
First, we tried face swap in RunwayML, but it didn’t work properly. Here are some failures:
So we decided to use Faceapp to swap the gender. Instead, we used RunwayML to mat the image and enhance the image quality if it is low res.
1. Remove the background (RunwayML)
2. Change the gender (Faceapp) 3. Make it high-res (RunwayML)
4. Edit body figures / add noise / touch ups (Photoshop)
