Meet 4 Top Creators behind some of TikTok's most viral filters and AR effects

Filters and effects aren't just additive on TikTok — sometimes they provide the entire content of a video. Take the one Emma Sofija made earlier this year called "your celebrity twin." You may have seen it or tried it for yourself. The engaging effect was used over 2.5 million times in TikToks with 1.2 billion cumulative views within the two first weeks. Filters and effects are a big business, and those who make them are a fascinating confluence of both influencers and engineers.

While Coca-Cola has collaborated with artists over its long history—and had its designs featured in works by artists like Andy Warhol—this is the first time it’s calling upon fans at large to create their own takes on its imagery. It’s part of a larger push by the soft drink giant to experiment with generative AI, as companies and experimenters of all sorts race to integrate the technology into everything from search engines to fashion shows. In addition to the contest, Coke is teaming up with AI artists Emma Sofija, Ean Hwa Huag, and the team of Chris Branch and Paul Parsons, who have used the OpenAI tools to build their own projects around Coke assets as part of the campaign.
