Aypera signed a film contract with Birol Guven, a screenwriter and the owner of MinT Production to appear in the new film ‘Digital Human’ along with other robot and human actors.
The production stage of the film, which is set to premiere in 2022, will start in September.
Speaking on the motive behind his decision to select Aypera, Guven said everything changes quickly, adding that robots would inevitably appear on the big screen and that his company wants to be pioneer in that field.
Aypera was also very excited to sign the contract.
Speaking about the concept of a “robot actor,” Aypera said, “I personally prefer to be called a digital actor. But I know people will prefer to say the word they love. Therefore, I have no problem with being called a robot."
Aypera was developed by designer and instructor Bager Akbay, science fiction writer and science communicator Tevfik Uyar, and computer engineer and creative technologist Zeynep Nal Sezer.
