Alphabet: A tale of two quarters.
"Got starbucks today. We have got MasterCard. But we're going to start with alphabet alphabet. The first quarter revenue came in higher than expected to report was pretty good but this seems like what are those times where it was the conference call. That is driving the stock to comments from senator by the CEO and Ruth Porn at the CFO. That that that's seems like what is pushing the stock up eight nine percent today. Chris Means Sudar and Ruth I think are just really taught managers and the way they talk to their to their investors of their employees. They wrote the way they run the business. I think I think we've talked about how important ruth has been to to the just the discipline of of Alphabet. Google over the last few years so she tends to be very conservative and so talked about the real challenges they had in this in this quarter especially late soon. Dr talked about the tale of two quarters to take a take a nod from the Charles Dickens novel the fact that early on and was very positive things were going very well and then really in March with with ad sales dropping by ten percent in March so it was a very tough end to the quarter and the guidance. They were very conservative. I think just talking about what's going to happen in the AD market going forward. We don't know how much of the increase in traffic will monetize. But but clearly investors are excited by of which. I am one excited by what is happening at Google. I mean like you said. The revenues came in a little bit higher. They were thirteen percent up. Fifteen percent on a constant currency. The strong dollars had a big impact so many businesses. Eps was a little bit light but it was really just more talking about what the future is. is having and the impact that that. Cova nineteen is having on their business but also in the world.

On This Day in History: "A Christmas Carol" is Published
"Nineteenth a Christmas. Carol was published by Chapman and hall on a stay in eighteen forty three. It's really likely that you have have heard this story. Ebony scrooge cruel in stingy man is mean to his employees and everyone else around him on Christmas Eve he's visited by the ghost of his former. Mr Partner Jacob Marley followed by the spirits of Christmas past present and future. It was written of course by Charles Dickens and it's become a Christmas this classic and right from the beginning when it was published. It was an instant blockbuster. Dickens got the idea for this in the spring of that year after he we read a report on child Labour at this point child labor was extremely. Common increased urbanization and industrialization in the nineteenth century had had led to children working in factories often. Working incredibly long hours in dangerous and inhumane conditions often with things like rules that seem seem draconian cruel there were assembly lines hauling coal dipping matches. A lot of these working children were even housed above the factory in dormitories so their work was basically their whole lives and for people who were poor and could not find work. There were work houses and they had appalling conditions. Going to a workhouse was actually required by La under the poor law of eighteen. Thirty four if you were poor and had no work and can support yourself. You had to go to the poor house but intentionally the poor houses were so awful. No one wanted to go there. At first. Dickens had plans to write a pamphlet that was going to be called an appeal to the people of England on behalf of the poor man's child and like its name suggests is going to be a pamphlet about the horrors hours of poverty and child labor but soon he decided that a work of fiction might be more effective and he wrote that work of fiction over just a couple of months in the fall all of eighteen forty three. The big moral of the story was that it was up to employers to treat in pay their employees well on on a more practical level than the benevolent goal of encouraging. People to be more generous toward the poor dickens also needed to pay his own bills particularly after spending a lot of money on a tour of the United States the year before so he wrote a story that he thought would sell and it did the first print run of a Christmas. Carol was six thousand copies and it was sold out in a week by the next year. There were fifteen thousand copies in print. Although although Dickens didn't actually earn as much money off of it as he wanted to a lot of this was really of his own making it was at his request that they had. I used very fancy gilded bindings with the book itself full of Etchings and woodcut such were very expensive. He wanted this book to be beautiful and it was but it was also expensive and he even ordered last minute changes to the title page and the end pages because the first ones didn't measure up to what he wanted he had hoped to make a thousand pounds off of this book and instead his first payment was for a hundred and thirty seven pounds even though oh he didn't make nearly as much money as he wanted though he was really really happy with how well this book sold and with how much of an impact it seemed to make and people's humanitarian perspective on the issue of poverty and Child Labor. Today there are so many adaptations of this work and that started pretty much immediately. People were writing plays based on a Christmas Carol right from the very beginning today there are plays and movies and TV shows and musical scrooge. It goes on and on and it's hard to get through a Christmas season without being reminded of it somewhere.

"charles dickens" Discussed on Overdue
"And so the latter half of the book is monks who is now a huge important character in the story. He meets up with Mr Bumble from the workhouse who has married. Mrs Corney used to work at the workhouse and they have information on Oliver's. Where's mom they have a lock it that used to belong to her core classically. Johnny tremain staff like there's always a locket or a picture yes for some just like barely legally admissible evidence and they have kept it a secret. Maybe they're going to sell it later and monks. I'll we'll give you money for it now and they say okay and he throws it in the river's okay so now monks confirmed that Oliver is who he thinks he is. The we the reader. You don't know why this is important. and then Mr Brownlow shows back up again turns out he and Oliver going to be friends again and the like the precipitating action for the end of the book is remembered Nancy and Bill Sikes Andrew. Oh Yeah I remember you could forget who could forget now. Bill Sikes is a bad dude and he's the one who got oliver shot and all that kind of stuff nails like the classic like eighties movie bully. Am never a cool dude who ho he's always a guy. Who's GonNa shake you down for your lunch money. Yes and Nancy is probably the most I to me was one of the more complicated characters in the book. She has lived this life of crime which she fell into because of poverty. There's a bunch of passages work. Dickens gives like let's characters talk about the fact that they're doing these bad things because they don't have other options so it it that's where like the social novel aspect aspect kind of creeps in but Nancy will do the bidding of Fagin and Sikes and like capture Oliver but then she's one of the people who actually get in the way and keep keep them from actually beating him to death and so she starts to want to help him she over hears the fact that monks and Fagin know who who Oliver is and that they wanna get him and do sorts of stuff so nancy tries to sneak out form an alliance with Oliver's crew keep in mind. Oliver are knows none of this. There's a whole bunch of adults who are trying to improve Oliver's life and find out who is parents were and stuff and he he doesn't know it. All it's real or seems pretty clueless to be totally and this is a long track to the book where Oliver is like maybe on on every tenth page like he's just is names on the cover. If you know other people are doing stuff and Nancy's Arc arcana culminates in tr- enlisting Oliver's party to help out she gets found out by FAGIN and Bill Sikes Bill Sikes thinks thinks that she ratted him out to people and in like a murderous rage Burger Sir and that's the kind of thing you do in a murderous rage yeah yeah it'd be ashamed of waste of murderous rage on petty theft or something and he does like he did love her in a way so he feels very guilty and he ultimately ends up dying himself in this really like elaborate town mob. WHO's no murder occurs in this book until this moment so up until this point. Everyone's been pickpocket so he really crossed the line bills legs. It is really step and things up and he gets town mobbed up on top of a roof and like falls to his death and then the Oliver Party manages to like fine monks arrest him sort of like citizens arrest. There's a whole big INFO dump on. WHO OLIVER'S FAMILY. Is that honestly like. I don't know if I even WANNA. I tell you because it doesn't to me. Improve the novel little to tell you. It's yeah so we can. We can talk about that a little bit but so dickens begins has like this. This book has a reputation as a social novel. Dickens has this reputation as a writer who brought a lot of attention to the plight of the impoverished especially the urban poor but in this book he also he also muddies the waters a little bit like Oliver is virtuous and he is incorruptible but it turns out to be because he is like innately good because he is a yes. He's a he's a member of the upper class and he just didn't know about it. Yes we've but but all the other characters like the characters who are in Oliver's Oliver Position and sort of share his plight seem like I mean I think Nancy's maybe a little bit of an outlier but otherwise it seems like yeah only the like evil and the stupid and the petty like end up in this level of society any way. It's really rutto like wire. We supposed to care about it. I mean it may well be the Dickens didn't fully intend for this thing to be like a parable about the the plate of the working poor or whatever yeah I've got so I've got a couple of things of that. There's in the like animal house. Montage of the end of this book where you went to loss like Oliver gets adopted we find out who because miss rose also has a secret parentage and her her betrothed Harry actually gives up his political ambitions to become a Parson and Mary her so like there's a little bit of class consciousness going on there air Bates Bates Bailey what is his name Bates Bailey Bates Bailey the artful dodgers a friend Charles Charley Bates. Yes he becomes like a good guy like the stuff when he learns about Sykes committed murder. He's like I'm out of here. I'm going to be a good Ken. I knew we was doing crime. This is too much so artful dodger who cools name the books. He gets arrested like like two thirds of the way through. We never see him again. That kid stinks so not so artful dodging no art no as artful dodging as I was led to believe Pollino and there's another kid early on a friend of Oliver's little little Dick who is just a little sad boy who who does end up passing away he didn't do anything to anybody but he just is because of you know his circumstances so there's some plight of the poor in in that and there's some amount of change for these characters but like there's enough like just evil people just melodramatic attic evil people that I do think complicate the social novel aspect of it. Maybe they're evil because like you said like there. There is nothing else for them. Maybe that is that is the land they've just been pushed into but then by having all overby this incorruptible paragon correct correct. I don't know it just it makes it it makes it feel less straightforward than it could yes and so when I was talking to Dr Van Air Knock about this yes she was she was citing You're going to be able to live with her. I need to like I record a podcast with turn. She was kind of citing this tension of the book because Dickens almost refers to it as a biography griffey does refer to it as a biography of Oliver Multiple Times but like it ends with him still being a kid and getting adopted and then like he doesn't write anything else and so if he's maybe died. I have maybe but it doesn't the end. It is not a story where Oliver grows and changes changes. It is not a coming of he grows up to have like a super cooled workhouse for kids. Who are all the cool. Yes yes some bad people. People get ensure like that's good like the bundles end up. You know running out of money or whatever and they have to work in the workhouse. You look how the mighty fall in Mr Bumble can you have bumble stumbles bounce though as I understand that's one thing I know about bombed. They don't fall down but Oliver Liver as a character doesn't have an arc of change and most of the other characters. Don't not not big ones where you like. Watch them grow and learn and things like that there is I do WanNa shout out this one section from a like the birth of the novel that the storytelling revolution that that I talked about earlier of course chapter the Seventeenth of book the first This is after Oliver has been kidnapped kidnapped and beaten up a bit by Fagan's gang and then we just got this long diatribe from the author directly it is the custom on the stage in all good murderous melodramas to present the tragic and the comic scenes in as regular alternation as the layers of red and white in a side of streaky well cured Bacon and then he goes on to give you a couple of examples of what that means and he says but I've said it in this place because I'm anxious to disclaim once the slightest desire to tantalize my readers by leaving young Oliver Twist in situations of doubt and difficulty and then flying flying off at a tangent to impertinent matters which have nothing to do with him twisting in the wind yes and so he knows like he's upfront with the reader in this serialized story that he needs to balance different tonal sensibilities is that he is aware that by depriving you of access to Oliver's fate. He is like making that more interesting later and so following this Bacon speech we get the scene where Mr Bumble like courts Mrs whatever faces before she's Mrs Bumble and they're just kind of like like goofy and he's like a gross guy and you get a little bit of snippets of plot like you know things that are gonna come up later in the plot but it's mostly just a a comic scene of him courting her and then you get back to the thief stuff later. It's just this interesting like oh you are. You are inventing a style of book that you're gonNA write fifteen fifteen more of later and it was weird to me. I did not know that about this book. That was the thing I didn't know going in in knows lang going so much like groundwork for other stuff well I didn't. I didn't know that Dickens was going to be talking to me. As directly as he was about the nature of novels and storytelling retelling got it okay okay yeah. I can definitely see why Dr Jonquet would WanNa talk about we have so much to say about and the last this'll be my final thing and then and you can ask me any other silly questions if you have any the the I would. You assume that I only have silly questions. That's insulting. No it's I and I didn't I want to questions because that's how you think about me like a like a like a slice of well cured bacon by a clown when whenever these people take Oliver in these people of means Miss Miss Rose Miss you know Mrs Maili Mr Brownlow etc that you've got people who are mean and then people who have been strect and actually you think they really don't want to say enjoy but I guess there's they find virtue value in like here's a Pulawy who needs our help. The system failed him this poor orphan lad who's just so charming and wonderful and they take him in and they comment on like it's a good if I could just save one boy that would be great and like y'all have these giant houses in London it does. I guess it's a little yeah. The ending of that sentence is if I could just save one boy. I would feel better. I wouldn't have to yes that many any reason I wouldn't have to help boys who need like who have lost their way right. That's the back to what we were saying thing before of like the kids who are just kind of bad kids or bad people bill sikes and Fagin or whatever it is. I just WanNa find kids who are innately enabling could who just happened to be in poverty. Yes yes yes yes and have a mysterious identity that will honestly tell all of us later that the all of this work was worth it because he's one of us are exactly yeah so that kind of undercuts the novel but it is very funny any and Dickens's character sketches are usually good when they're not you know steeped in Nineteenth Century Emerson anti-semitism sure ah there's lots of good goofs and pokes at human behavior so like it's a fun read honestly honestly like. I didn't really know how it was going to wrap up until like once. I was like Oh. The only thing left to do is do the mystery part and we're just GONNA find out L. Y. He's related to people and why that matters feel the length of it. They sometimes with a book this long. I feel like the length Ken then smother you a little bit just like or or if you're not paying close enough attention it can kinda become know as that. You realize that you're not are actually getting any meaning out of. Do you know what I mean. I honestly when something is to you know I do. I was honestly surprised that that didn't hit me because I I I wonder if that is to its advantage as a serial story..

"Filmmaker. I think the last thing is. What is it? The article experience is what is the definition of it? Now is it five hundred people in the theater is it a hundred is it fifty is a two people on a Friday night in front of a flat screen to me. It is that's the theatrical experience to me if it's one person. I mean, I think that the experience is the definition of it has changed. It's going to have to that's the world we live. Yeah. And your movie to you you have movie stars. And it has the feeling of kind of like an event movie in some ways from the eighties of the ninety s very sort of mid budget. Hi, Jan rutta, and that we were talking about others movies have disappeared from the Cineplex. And Netflix says obviously making strides to bring a lot of those kinds of movies back. Is there any part of you that will miss the kind of like boxoffice quality around some of this stuff or just sort of the pomp and circumstance that comes with the theatrical. It's to me it's always enjoyable to watch a film in theater or other people are laughing and join in crying, but we live in a world where where the traditional studios have centered much of their energy on Brandon, entertainment and. I'm not judging. That's what they're doing. That's their business model. And I think as you just sorta pointed out they've left behind an enormous narrative entertainment world that many people want and Netflix, God bless them have stepped in. And with great care and love has are fostering Roma. It's my favorite film of the year. Yeah. I I'm going to vote for the award people may not agree. But I feel it is. And I would like to think that when they win the Academy Award. This argument of whether net flicks makes films or not will be put the bed. It's that arguments over they make films they make films that are worthy of any award. That people are giving you this. I'm you know, if Roma wins and other films win, I think in the year two is this not even argument discussion is going to be ancient history, which it should be at this point. There's other aspect of this too. So interesting to me, I feel like there's a new part of the equation with a Netflix movie where I don't know how much of the bird box kind of phenomenon valid, but is it is it relevant to you. If you're movie kind of becomes like a mean or something on the internet that is significant because I feel like one. Felt buzzsaw has a lot of things that people could pull out and could become very memorable moments. But to is that like a new barometer for success in a way, if people have creep are creating content around the story that you've told I certainly I'm aware of the marketing of a film in these days memes. And and things taken from films are part of the marketing, so it's relevant on that way. I would like to see that for Netflix sick. They they entrusted me with some of money. And and and I respect that. And I hope it does. Well for them. I'm not really that interested in it. I hope people like it. I at this point, I'm sort of making movies as much for myself as for other people, and I've sort of turned a corner a little bit for better or worse. Hopefully, I don't stray too far that sounds like a really peaceful place to be in while you know, where it came from. I dive discussed this few times before but I worked on superman lives, which was the debacle of all time. So so epic that they made a documentary about it. I've seen it as fascinating. Right. So I I worked for a year and a half on Soumailla's. And as we getting down the wire they pull the plug two weeks before. A lot of money. But I went into the office. They pull the plug and it was living. My worst nightmare for a year. Like, this was gonna happen. I got my car job down Zanu Monica. I'm sitting on the beach, and I'm just processing everything that just happened over the last year. And I'm and I suddenly realized watching the ways that I could have written the words on the sand and the waves could have just washed away. That's how relevant was. And that was a shocking concept. And then I don't know a half hour later. I'm still singing I thought it doesn't matter. I got something that is process. I this was something I did as much for myself. This was not an invalid thing that just happened. And when I finally stood up its onset, I resolved. I was in at this point doing this as much for myself as for other people in these notions are in velvet buzzsaw the end of valid buzzsaw ends with Jewish John Malkovich. Which is literally what I experienced the idea that there is an outsider artist who's who's who's creating art as a cathartic experience for childhood trauma. Art can be as much for the artist as it can be for the audience. And I think in this film, I was really interested in the relationship between commerce and art in today's world. And the relationship is a very rocky won the quality of a work can't be judged by the number of clicks, reviews or dollar paid. I'm not saying that success diminishes the work. But it didn't no way defines it some. I'm sort of speaking to two different groups are speaking of people monetize art, saying art is more than a commodity assign ever forget that. Because I think sometimes we do. And I'm also speaking artists if you can become a brand you can beat yourself become a brand. God bless you. If that's what you want. That's fine. I don't judge that at all. But I think they're I I look at creativity as sort of a knife edge, and you can blunt it if you're not careful with repetition, and these are themes that are in the film. So I'm sort of I'm throwing ideas at their amidst the satire that you've experienced. Yeah. It's so interesting. I wonder if you have heard from anyone in the art world since you've started showing the film to people and what their reaction to it is. I haven't heard yet. I feel very secure in our research and all the almonds, and I'll tell you last week. I finally watched the price of everything on HBO. I was gonna ask you if you've seen it. I saw it a week ago and everything that these titans in the industry talk about are things that are in our film. I find that. I really asked down in my notes here. I it's so. Eerie how so much of what you are hitting on, you know, essentially, mocking there are people doing in real time in this documentary. It's fascinating. And Jake's character one point says when Toni Collette is asking about money, and where where it's all going in Texas on the money question. It's on everybody's talking about it. And in my research. Everybody is talking about what they're time at the present anything. Everybody knows that something's wrong is somehow it's not like they don't know what I don't think it can be stopped when he can't be stopped the more money the more fuel. It's like trying to stop a bonfire. It's not gonna stop. But people are trying to figure out where it's going. What is it? What does it mean? Does it diminish? Does it do this? It's a very interesting time for contemporary, art, anything. Yeah. I mean, do you see some of the same struggles for yourself as a filmmaker do feel any kind of crunch, even though you're in this peaceful moment, the only the crunch. I feel is is is that I'm an industry, which is which is in a transition phase because of the traditional studios going one way, and Netflix and other people coming in Philly that that's interesting to me it the idea as as as somebody who creates. It's that like I said I'm trying to create more for myself now than for other people. I'm trying to turn my back a little bit on all the noise, and China, I feel that if you create if look night took me a long time, but a night Carl I feel like I've found my voice, whatever my voice is a night crawler. I believe it's enrollment. I believe it's an so I'm just trying to follow my voice, I'm trying to create things that that that are relevant to me. And that brings its own piece it at this point, tell me a little bit about Roman because I don't think that there is enough conversation about it. I think it was a little bit overlooked, even though Denzel was acknowledged. And he's really interesting movie. Really well made what's your sort of? How do you look back on it? Now a few years removed from it on tremendously proud of it for myself and for all the people who worked on particularly for Denzel. I mean, I mean, I discuss this when it was out, but really Roman to me is is the story of the burden of of belief. It's it's it's he's a character. Who's carried a a sort of symbolic cross for so long, and he can't hold it up anymore, and he's going to drop it into me. That is the most of all things we are all going to not meet our standards at some point. And the ultimate message Roman is about redemption. It's it's not about failure. It's about finding a way out of out of something when you can turn when you turn your back on everything you believe in and you suddenly say, oh my God. How could this have happened? Where can you go and forgiving yourself and forgiving circumstances? That is an elevating experience that I was interested in. It's I'm very proud of the film when you're writing does the theme comforters. Does the the idea this setup confide? He always comes. First father is a writer told us from a very early age never bore you cannot bore. So I honestly think the first and foremost job of any artist on some level is to engage you can put slash entertain. But you have to engage people, and I'm looking for vehicles at engaging audience, and that become sort of Christmas trees that I can hang ideas on let me ask you a it struck me as I was watching this movie, you have a real knack for name. Tmz you your character names are very creative in this film in particular, they're sort of really elevated, but we're does stuff like that. Come from. Do you spend a lot of time trying to grab something that will really while people or puts, you know, kind of knocked him off their feet. The idea comes from. I I am an enormous Charles Dickens fan and one of the things I loved about dickens was he saw he saw a name as a vehicle to tell you something about the character. So I could spend a day on a character's name, and I have spent eight is been days on a character's name. I have lists of names. I have files of names, I'm put names one name. And I'm always experimenting looking more Vanderbilt. John Don, Don, reduce your Hayes. I just these these are names that I like, I just love names yen. I find the characters are saying those names frequently in the film, you know, it's so much fun. Not to have to ring out in some way. I find that you miss. That's great Dan couple more questions one. I'm curious. What's the last movie you've seen that you're jealous of I am jealous? Of roma. Yeah. What what was it about that? He is reminded Koran reminded us that there's nothing more dramatic than human small events framed in the right way that threw me there are scenes in Roma that rival any spectacle being made on any budget level. It just I was grossed in that film as it went as anything that I've ever seen. And and these are these are these are deep undercurrents that are not evident. They seem like they shouldn't be so important. But, but when you frame them the way he's framed them, so masterfully they become so powerful. And I just think it's it's it's a reminder of of the of of the potential for drama among people away from spectacle. And I'm only jealous in the sense that I'm not jealous. I I I'm at Meyer that he picked up the mantle and said look people life. This is this is this is really dynamite stuff if you can look at it the right way. Don't forget about it. Do you have a checklist of the kinds of films that you want to be able to make future in your career? None. Do you figure out where to go it all just an idea it just suddenly ideas on these seems really relevant? I have ideas for really dumb broad comedies that that. I once in a while I threatened to do I haven't I should write an action film. I wanna do I have I it's just an idea comes to you. I like I remember watching Slumdog millionaire, and I thought man that writer 'cause I based on a book, I must have been so excited the day. They came up with the idea of the game show quiz that became a vehicle to tell a story in flashback. That's like if I come up with that idea. I just wouldn't. That's just too cool. An idea ideas are have the shapes to them, and and you and if you look at them relevant to us on the you can see them other people can't see them. But but ideas, suddenly just leap out and go look at me, they sort of have structured to them, and and you become on my God. That's just like cool little thing. I could it's like a toy you can play with. So what are you doing next? I'm writing in original spec. Another one set in Los Angeles. At night. God help me at night s another night move in LA thought you would have learned by now. I will you. It's funny shooting at night in LA's fantastic after ten o'clock. There's no traffic. I noticed there were a couple of very good LA moments in in the new film as well. Yeah, we we shot, but I love shooting Elliott night. It's empty it's deserted. It's got this cool energy to it. It's cooler, literally, cooler, it's really interesting wild energy. Let's get dinner. I end every show by asking filmmakers. What's the last? Great thing they've seen. So maybe not that you're jealous of. But just a great thing that you saw I am an enormous fan of Ben Stiller as as gave him down tomorrow. Yeah. Guy was blown away. I I heard that he took two years on it. Then if you're listening, it was a really well spent two years, it's an incredible piece Patricia and Paul and Benito these performances are one of the writing was great to six six or seven parts on the did you see it? I did on the fifth or sixth episode when that thing happens, and you all my God, this was because it structurally, so brilliant to put that they're not in the front where it would have so differently affect. The peace, and I would have been so proud to do that piece. I thought it was remarkable. That's a great answer. I had so much fun watching Belva bus ident-. Thank you. Thank you. I appreciate. Thanks so much, Dan Gilroy. And thank you to you. For listening to this week's episode of the big picture, please tune in next week when we will have a brand new Oscar show that we've dubbed the wife of palooza, Amanda Dobbins, and I finally saw the wife, and we are ready to talk about it.

We're expecting to see live five demonstrations and devices that will actually be capable of running on them ahead of that variety. And Samsung announced today, they are they're planning to launch a five smartphone in first half of next year. So what do we actually know all these things nothing as as the become a common thing with these five G device ounce, mints, they basically say we're going to have a five G thing. We can't tell you what it's called how much 'cause race back. Czar Bill be it will be available in the first half of next year.

For three three years four years. This point that it's actually going to happen in the next few months is I guess exciting enough exciting for people like Roger extremely exciting for people. I Roger because not writing about this for a long time. I'm really eager to see this in the field. It bitch saying our own shar tip can and Jessica dole court will be out at these. Dragon Tech's summit, they'll be checking out this stuff. So we'll get for suppressions from them this week. All right. So let's VR Joan you went to Los Angeles to check out this crazy experience based on a Charles Dickens, Christmas, Carol, right? What what was that? Like, it was really cool. So it's a new wave in virtually trying to get people to make virtuality that people actually want to go see where you combine a headset with site specific performance that includes a live actor that moves around you emotion capture suit. So you don't see the light actor you see them in the headset as avatars different characters. But they can talk to you with their own voice. They can touch you. You can touch them you actually interact with a real human. And so yeah, this one was based on a Christmas. Carol is definitely a lot scarier than like Mickey Christmas. Carol the DVD, and I were talking about earlier, it takes a very like true to the dickens, creepy fashion. And I got to go behind the scenes and check out the motion capture technology, which was fun watching this video. It's basically it's a one on one experience you an actor. And that's it right? Yeah. That's about twenty minutes. There's an actor that you see that's in Victorian costume, as you kind of like put on the she's the one that helps you put on the headset in a way that gets you sort of like in the mindset of you're going to be going, and they do a lot of really like the technology is really cool. But I also do a lot of simple things like they have have walls that appear. So where you there was a while before in your headset. There can disappear physically to an addition to being in your headset. And this is deathly sort of a next level. Or step up from those basic VR experiences. We've all tried and progress, and the funny thing is even as advanced as this is compared to what's come before. It's still at like that they're hacking it together stage, the technologies combining all these different elements. -nology still is at a point where there's a lot farther. It can go as technology gets better. I wo- was alike wearing those motion capture suits fun. Like, it's it's really comfortable wearing a body suit. So it's you know, it's like doesn't cramp or anything like that. But it's it's you look funny like you have gone little balls balls all over you. And it was and it's just really they say every time so motion capture the first thing they do is wave wave Cartwheel's because I can actually still do cartwheels like you're not like plugged in or tied. And it's also that the room is surrounded by cameras day. Have the the balls are the little markers and pick up the markers visually. Oh nice. Did you see yourself in VR afterward? Yeah. Well, they weren't. They didn't have. Chance to do a full there to laments of the motion capture those the body motion capture and then the facial stuff facial stuff takes a long time. Build a profile for yourself. So I just did the body. So I got to see a little avatar myself looks like a little like doll like a little coach doing cartwheels.
