ZK Movie: Behind The Scenes

Published on: 
Aug 15, 2023

TL;DR:

Today we release a short film showcasing the realm of Zero-Knowledge Proofs set in a medieval fantasy world.

As in ancient times when information was closely guarded in royal halls and sacred scrolls, today’s digital landscape demands similar reverence for truth. In an age where data is the new gold, Zero-Knowledge cryptography has emerged as the ideal solution for hiding data, while proving assertions on that data.


Our video highlights how Zero-Knowledge renders trust unnecessary, and features some of its potential applications, from finance to communication and gaming. However, there’s a catch: to truly harness these protocols, we need purpose-built hardware capable of running intricate mathematical computations on a scale never seen before.

Ingonyama actively contributes to the development of advanced hardware, striving to make ZKP accessible to a broader audience.

We believe it’s important to educate our audience about the applications of ZKPs. As with Ingonyama’s technical innovations, we’re not just navigating today’s challenges but preparing for a future in which Zero-Knowledge is a cornerstone of our online interactions.

Not Your Typical Explainer Video

Our short film is tailored for a diverse audience. If you’ve never heard of Zero-Knowledge proofs (ZKPs), this is a perfect starting point. For those who’ve come across the term but want a deeper dive, we’ve got you covered. Our aim is to demystify this complex topic and make it digestible for everyone.

If you are familiar with the concept of ZKPs, we invite you to explore Ingopedia, our comprehensive ZK knowledge base, for a more in-depth exploration of ZKPs and other cutting-edge technologies.

Why AI?

With the rapid growth and integration of AI in various sectors, it’s evident that this technology is reshaping our world. Using AI allows us to present information in a dynamic, adaptive, and interactive manner, ensuring that our audience gets the most out of the experience.

Tools used:

We utilized Stable Diffusion to lay the groundwork. Its capabilities allowed us to establish a solid base for visual elements.

Midjourney was instrumental in enhancing the outputs from Stable Diffusion. It complemented the former, ensuring that the narrative visuals were both compelling and coherent.

We employed Photoshop with AI Image Generation features to refine the visuals. This involved filling in missing details and removing unwanted elements, ensuring that the visuals were polished and professional.

With the static visuals ready, we turned to After Effects to animate and edit them. This software, bolstered by a range of plugins and a comprehensive stock VFX library, enabled us to craft a visual experience that aligned with the narration and script.


Recap

Whether you’re a newbie to ZKPs, a tech enthusiast, or someone deeply entrenched in the world of cryptography, we hope our video offered a fresh perspective and ignited a spark of curiosity.

The journey to create a ZK Movie was exhilarating. The process was long, but the outcome is unique. We are a company composed of innovators and explorers, working from first principles to deliver in a distinctive way.

And as we continue to explore and innovate, we invite you to be a part of the journey, to question, learn, and build towards a world where information is protected.

Thank you for being a part of the adventure.
