The debut of OpenAI’s first music video created by Sora


First Music Video Created with OpenAI’s Sora Released: A Dreamlike Experience

The first music video created with OpenAI’s publicly unreleased text-to-video generator Sora has been unveiled, and it’s a mesmerizing experience. The video, crafted for chillwave artist Washed Out, is a four-minute dreamlike journey through various scenes, seamlessly stitched together to create a continuous moving shot.

Renowned writer and director Paul Trillo, who had early access to Sora in March, took the helm in creating this groundbreaking music video. Trillo proudly claims it as the “first official commissioned music video” produced with OpenAI’s Sora. The video comprises 55 clips meticulously edited together, with Trillo revealing that he only made minor touch-ups and focused mainly on the cuts for the video.

“This was an idea I had almost 10 years ago and then abandoned. Finally was able to bring it to life,” Trillo shared on X.

While Trillo asserts that he created the inaugural Sora-generated music video, OpenAI’s model was previously utilized to generate a video clip for an ambient track by indie musician August Kamp. The emergence of AI models capable of generating images, audio, and video has stirred controversy among creators, with concerns about the potential threat to their livelihood.

OpenAI is currently embroiled in several lawsuits for copyright infringement, including notable figures like comedian Sarah Silverman and renowned writers George R. R. Martin, John Grisham, and Jodi Picoult, as well as the New York Times. Sora remains a highly anticipated AI model that transforms text prompts into high-fidelity video content, although it has yet to be publicly released as it undergoes rigorous testing by red teamers to identify any vulnerabilities.
