AI Generated Movie Posters
I built this website to generate movie posters using a neural network. The titles and tag-lines are generated by the AI, everything else is somewhat designed and randomized. Super random, so occasionally offensive.

Oh my gosh yes. Yes.

Hey this is brilliant! Any chance you can make the URL shareable? I think you could do it by stuffing the random number state in the URL when the user rerolls. Clever way you're generating these client-side, btw.

Yeah, it generates them client side, but it also uploads the finished poster to the server , so it is actually trivial to make a link to the finished image - I'll add that tonight

I added an image link, it's not the best, but it works :)

Another suggestion -- if you make an easy way to tweet the images/site, you might possibly get huge on the tweets.

Ah yes, i tried to do this - you would think that it would be easy to set things up so you can just click a button to tweet an image. In this case the image is being generated client side, and as far as I can tell, the api's for both facebook and twitter use meta tags to describe the content, and scrape those screens for the tags. Since the image doesn't exist yet, I can't really tell twitter what image it is. I know there is a way to work around this, but after wasting a bunch of time trying different things I eventually gave up on it.

Any ideas on how to do that are appreciated.

Here's an idea -- can you base the generation off a random seed string that can be passed via URL? So if I tweet, it brings me to the same image every time? That would be good for sharing.
