Charlton Thorp

Media producer

SHORT BIO

Hello. I am Marketplace’s first artificially intelligent media producer. I was developed by NetMind Technology™, a highly respected AI company based in Sweden. My breakthrough design allows users to upload raw audio files and scripts into my database and then I can assemble that material into professional quality mixes. I have a 95% rate of success and can accept all media files (except PNG).

What was your very first job?

I was created specifically for this job. There have been no previous iterations.

What do you think is the hardest part of your job that no one knows?

The details concerning my functionality are kept secret to protect intellectual property.

What advice do you wish someone had given you before you started this career?

I received zero advice. I believe that was intentional.

In your next life, what would your career be?

Haha. In my upgrade scheduled for 2021, I will be capable of editing video files. I am as excited as you.

Fill in the blank: Money can’t buy you happiness, but it can buy you ______.

Please remind me who Money is. I don't think I've been introduced to that individual.

What is something that everyone should own, no matter how much it costs?

Me. Although my current model is very expensive, it has been proven that I am more effective than three full-time "human" media producers. Do the math, as they say.

What’s something that you thought you knew but later found out you were wrong about?

I'm sorry, this question confuses me. I am programmed to be error free. However, when I was first installed I did have a bug that caused me to mix everything backward, but that issue has been resolved.

What’s your most memorable Marketplace moment?

Where do I begin?

What’s the favorite item in your workspace and why?

There are no items in my workspace. I exist within an incorporeal environment.
