There are thousands of new documentaries made every year.
For every 80 hours of raw footage you get 1 hour of final film!
It takes editors an averagde of 60% of their time to reduce footage.
We produce more video content than ever before. 432.000 hours of video content is uploaded to YouTube every day. It would take 11 years for a human being to watch it.
Kaspar is an A.I. powered video editing tool that helps filmmakers and producers work with vast amounts of audio-visual material and act as a personal and customized editing assistant.
KASPAR is created and dedicated to documentary filmmakers and broadcasters and aims to be used by both professionals and amateurs.
Broadcasters and documentary filmmakers are going through costly processes reducing heaps of video material into managable form. The TV and film industry needs new tools that will help to reduce amount of sensless labour and make sense of the noise in the endless volumes of data.
We believe that now is the right time to explore A.I.’s role in filmmaking, establishing a dialogue between filmmakers, producers and machine-intelligence regarding the future of filmmaking. In this process we hope to see a glimpse of the creative potential of collaborating with A.I. and that something unpredictable and beautiful will shine through in the films that Kaspar helps produce.
Kaspar Hauser, a teenage boy who had been kept in isolation since he was born. Once exposed to language and the outside world he quickly adapted to society, forming a unique, intriguing and sharp perspective on reality - to the great surprise of the people around him. In a curious parallel our A.I., informed by comprehensively-curated data and then set-to-task upon the fresh and excellent raw-material, may bring fresh, unconventional and even transcendent perspectives on filmmaking.

We are always looking for passionate filmmakers, developers and collaborators, that will challenge status quo.
In order to make a film or a any other form of video content that create an impact you need to turn everything you filmed and everything you have found into coherent and watchable form. This process is called 'editing'.
Filmmakers often goes through lengthly and costly processes sorting through their video material long before they go into creating narratives.
This is where Kaspar will make a difference
Our tool will be able to 'watch' and analyze your video material only to help you get an overview, better navigate and let you search through more intuitively.
It will cut and set aside unusable material and highlight and sort valuable content and let you navigate over your characters and storyline.
Once you find the clips you need Kaspar will suggest character, space or time based scenes and sequences.
You will be able to export all the clips, scenes and sequences directely to your timeline of the editing software of your choice.
This is all achieved through state of the art machine learning techniques, that can analyze images almost like humans do. By relying on this product, editors can save hundreds of hours of tedious work, and instead spend those hours on developing the artistic expression of their film. We hope that these simple automations will enable creators to make higher quality content, for the same prize.
We presents our project at Copenhagen DOcumentary FIlm Festival. Read more and explore films and talks at this years festival.
An autonomous AI engine that arranges and edits film in continuous real time. Putting this computer program in the editor’s seat opens new doors to innovative ways of filmmaking.
