Director Statement

As a video artist who posses only low-entry equipment, Until 2020, it was my first time to use a so called ‘’professional’’ Apple computer with ‘’pro’’ video editing soft-ware Davinci Resolve for post-production and color correction, but the mac is a out dated model, after I imported footages into Davinci Resolve, it couldn’t proceed all the rendering and calculation smoothly, plus other issue such as insufficient memory and weak hardware. Therefore Apple united Davinci Resolve created a film which was not produced by the director and proper editing process. And that is this docu-mentary of ‘’screen’’( screen recording ), produced by AI that replaces human work and involved with computer strike.

It eliminates the manual laboring element of human mind and body which control the computer for working process, for the first time, Davinci Resolve proceeds post production work such as color correction, matching , transitions , cuttings not con-trolled by human consciousness, editing images consciously by its own will. Thus, it created a film directed and executed by an apple computer and Davinci Resolve. It reflected the *bullshit jobs that can be done without human involvement, and indi-rectly pointed out the fact that the human needs for images is creating various bi-zarre and dumb shit stuff.
For a low-level creator of video art, the experience of being replaced by machines the first time he enters the field so-called professional equipment is a failure. Whether it also projects the problem of equivalence or transcendence between the work values of different classes of human beings and those of different "profession-al" computers. And is it true that those who cannot afford professional equipment are also unable to control it? This is a war between humans and computers!!!!
