The Screenplay: Scene 20

Posted by Dave Bull on January 21, 2023 [Permalink]

[Dave: perhaps because of the lengthy gap since our previous episode, I was logged out from the openai site. After getting back in, I found that the Bot seemed to have forgotten about our story, so I tried to create a 'catch-up' prompt to get back on track, giving it: "John is a foreigner living in Japan with his partner Mayu, and making woodblock prints. He has experienced many difficulties: trouble getting a visa to stay in the country, bad reviews at exhibitions of his prints, and rejection by Mayu's father, who is a famous printmaker. He and Mayu are discussing their future together. Create their conversation. Include something that will take this story in a new direction."]

The prompt to the Bot: A lawyer is having a conversation with an officer in the Japanese Immigration Bureau. The lawyer wants his client (an apprentice traditional woodblock printmaker) to be allowed to stay in Japan, but the officer wants to 'play by the rules' and disallow this. The lawyer needs to convince the officer. Show their conversation.

John (an apprentice printmaker) and his partner Mayu are having dinner with a retired laywer, a friend of Mayu's father, Shinji (who is also a woodblock printmaker). The lawyer is telling them about the time many years ago when he helped Shinji with some difficult legal problems.

The Bot responded with:
