Candace Cameron Bure of “Full House” and “Fuller House” fame is speaking out this week to reveal why she defiantly refuses to use artificial intelligence (AI) on her family friendly films.

Cameron Bure Finds AI ‘Frightening’

As the chief content officer of Great American Family, Cameron Bure said that she has “no intention” of using AI on the films she makes.

“I’ll be keeping my eye on it for sure,” Cameron Bure, 47, told Fox News. “I think it’s something that’s a little frightening to me … at the core of it.”

“However, we are using wonderful writers to write our movies, and I have no intention of using or touching AI when it comes to our filmmaking and writing scripts,” she added.

Other Hollywood Figures Not Using AI

Cameron Bure isn’t the only Hollywood power player who is resisting working with AI. Nicole Brown, president of TriStar Pictures, recently spoke out to say that she prefers to work “with human beings.”

“I mean, movies are about someone’s experience, someone’s perspective, someone’s vision,” she said. “So, even though there was a lot of discussion about AI during strikes, as someone building content, I want to work with human beings.”

Sam Register, president of Warner Bros Animation and Cartoon Network Studios, also recently argued that AI is not “better” at animation than human artists are.

“As an animation studio, I just think it’s important we protect the artists and the art form as long as we can,” Register said. “Because I think we should give jobs to people who really do that, and so they can get their entry-level experience.

“Animation’s a visual medium,” he continued. “But, so far, I haven’t seen anything AI can do visually that an artist doesn’t do better currently.”

The actress Justine Bateman of “Family Ties” fame has been fighting hard against the use of AI in Hollywood.

“I think AI has no place in Hollywood at all. To me, tech should solve problems that humans have,” she recently said. “Using ChatGPT or any … software that’s using AI to write screenplays, using that in place of a writer is not solving a problem. We don’t have a lack of writers. We don’t have a lack of actors. We don’t have a lack of directors. We don’t have a lack of talented people.”

AI And The 2023 Hollywood Strike

The use of AI in Hollywood played a major role in the Writers Guild of America and SAG-AFTRA going on strike last year. The new Writers Guild of America contract states that raw, AI-generated story lines will not be regarded as “literary material,” as in scripts or storylines that are produced by a screenwriter. This essentially means that human screenwriters will not be competing with AI in the industry.

Business Insider reported that the new SAG-AFTRA contract states that “Those looking to reproduce actors’ likenesses with AI must now first obtain their consent, and the stars must be paid for the number of days they would have worked to perform any scenes featuring their digital replicas.”

However, some actors are still concerned about how “vague” the consent exemptions are. For example, employers are not required to obtain consent to adjust certain performance parts like “lip and/or other facial or body movement and/or the voice of the performer to a foreign language.”

AI has been developing faster than ever as of late, so we can certainly see why someone like Cameron Bure is fearful about using it. What do you think about the use of AI? Let us know in the comments section.
