"diner topi" Discussed on Sci-Fi Talk Scribes

"Verne type of time periods correct. Yes, things don't change in Topi that much, but we can enter it in different points on the shoreline geographically or in different points in history and one of the books, that I did is a prequel. It goes back a couple thousand years in the expands the the concept backward in time and the hallmark miniseries. With some characters from the present day, so as you can imagine for it for a TV, script writers, we're looking for a way to to bring a somewhat more contemporary perspective to the story in it and I think it's. A NEAT way to to develop diner Topi into the modern day, but it's still it's still the same kind of dining topa with. One kid told me everyone wears baggy clothes, right? That's the idea. The dinosaurs are. Not all of them talk some of them. Communicate in different ways, but there is. A six foot tall dinosaur named ZIPPO WHO's A. Standard Ikea source or a Atro- Don is basically the one of the most intelligent dinosaurs who follows the characters on their adventures. He's awesome. I mean some of the things that we mentioned the Ping Pong game. I think he's the one playing ping pong, and not only that just you know, I think in the in the library of dining topa and I was just amazed how well he interacted with the human characters I can imagine wouldn't challenge. It must have been for them. That was pretty awesome and I was very impressed that people make doing the affects. Walking with dinosaurs as well doing the dyno's yes, the same team that did walking with dinosaurs, and when you look at scenes like that the dinosaurs walking through the library, and all of the scales are shimmering right as as he turns around, and not only the movement of the creature himself, but the shadows that are cast on all the bookcases. Had to be carefully planned and plotted so that they they looked really three dimensional, so it was. It was a real job for them to sell some of those shots into. For the actors to act these scenes where the dinosaurs didn't exist. Of course they were just talking to blank space or to a ping pong ball the end of a pole. That so it's. Was a fine job of acting there, too, and you mentioned. The ONYX and there's one characteristic becoming a favorite of mine, because I've seen him today number twenty six. I think he's a cute little. I and I know that was done by the Jim Henson creature shop, which fans will know from other hallmark productions, but also farscape which I. do a great job on there, too. And I was really amazed all the work that went into him. You know, but you said you held him and you kind of so how he worked. What was that experience like to see a creation of yours like that kind of come to life and do all these things that. Independent of you sort of speak. Well I, visiting the waterfall city set was something like waking and a dream waking up in a dream, because I have been working for many years imagining all of this and draw pictures on paper, but to actually go through the archway, and out suddenly be indicted. Topi was really thrilling to see I watched a little bit of principal photography and then. went to the edge of a sound stage where these guys handed me this hatchlings dinosaur, and they said don't drop it cost one hundred thousand dollars in, and I'm holding this creature about the size and weight of watermelon or so and a baby Sarah Thompson Dinosaur. She turns her head and looks up at me and moves or pause, and wags her tail, and blinks and licks her lips, and are selects the Beacon I. Could swear as holding a living creature. And, then I looked up and there these two guys in the shadows with Radio Control Setsu wiggling these all these dials and controls, and I realized they were doing the whole thing, but it was. When you take the skin off of that creature and look what's inside. Being the son of a mechanical engineer, and building a of gadgets as a kid I have great admiration for what it took to to make all the subtle movements on the surface, and you have a great cast David twelfths from. Dr Real One of my favorite actresses Alice, Krieger who was fans remember from the Board Queen from Star Trek. The next generation and she's terrific and some great young actors twos. I think they'll. People will have characters. They can relate to yeah I think so, and I think it's A. Pretty big team because you've got all the principal characters and a huge cast of extras that are that are moving around in the background, not just humans, but also dinosaurs that are thrown in as texture. You know in the background. A QUEST STORY THAT Follows the two brothers one is kind of a rabble, rouser and troublemaker. He's not. He doesn't like that and toby too much at first, and he doesn't have much of a sensitive side. And of course he gets assigned to the hatchery to raise. hatchlings, the other guy has a fear of heights, and he's kind of bookish fellow, and he gets assigned to be a sky box writer. He's not sure he likes heights at all. But? They go through their course of their adventures, looking for their father who's lost and both of them fall in love with a diner. Topi and girly Marian, so it's it's quite an epic. Can develop characters for the full six hours of the miniseries. You one thing I do want to add is Karl Marx, such great series. I've loved Gulliver's travels. Rabian nights and I was very thrilled and even Jason and the argonauts that was thrilled that they were behind this. They did they approach you about this? Or how did this come about in that sense? Data Topi a was optioned with a major motion picture company in Hollywood for several years in a great team was put together behind it with Ken Ralston, of Lamb and image works, which was really formed around. Doing the dining topiary effects, and they did tremendous amount of work, storyboarding and screenplay. It's been about four million on it, but the plug got pulled at the from the executives with the change of Administration at Columbia, and at that point, the rights came back to us, and we were looking around at other studios at hallmark entertainment came in and I never really thought of them because I don't own a TV and so I had never seen any of the production, so we rented a TV VCR, set us all the tapes and I I watched the whole the whole hallmark series. And was really impressed with. Not only the fact that they were faithful to stories, but when they did make changes they. Had some creative ideas to bring to the material and I knew that men risk for Dino Topa because I knew that changes had to be made to make it work on the screen, but they were concerned about keeping it faithful to the spirit of the original story. And also to to doing something on television that really is intended for family audiences, and and doesn't introduce something in a diner. That doesn't belong no I think. It's GonNa be awesome and I wanted to ask you to. What's what you have I? Know you during a great slide presentation. You gave here Luna Con- you previewed some new Dina Topi that you're working about a new city. Can you kind of tease your fans about that a little bit? The new book that I'm starting on all I, really say about it as it involves an adventure story from Arthur dennison's journals based on a new journal that was just recently discovered about his. Adventures to the eastern coast into the fabled city of Dara. Something like the story of Marco Polo's journeys across the continent to China. And the first couple of paintings, the big ones for for this one will be featured in Washington at a show of dining Topi art. They will be at the Smithsonian. Starting in late April and going all the way through till September, so if anyone wants to see the art from the first three books that I've done and some of the models that went into it as well as some of the material from the hallmark miniseries lobby down there. started the end of April I've been to that museum there. They do great job presenting things like this. So that's going to be awesome I have families. I think I'll go down there. Definitely. Check that out well. I, really WANNA. Thank you for taking the time to speak to me I think I'd been long. Admire of your work since I saw the first book and just little boy me just went cool. Take Care Tony Tomato until next time..

"Hi Welcome to season two of bite. This is Tony Tiller. Parenting apocalypse it's it's not the same way that. You know how it works any views usually two to four minutes long, but sometimes they can be a little longer only when you when you live long enough, all kinds of strange things happen. Very right in saying that the Greek heroes the original superheroes. In part because of the hopeful nature of genes vision, but also because of its message of diversity inclusion. I love world, building and someone who did an amazing job of. It was illustrator and writer James Gurney. Did you think back in nineteen? ninety-two two Dinah Tokyo would become what it is today. I had no idea at all. In fact when I was doing the paintings for Diner Topa I was doing pictures that I was intentionally doing to make impossible to make in a live action I knew that in the Star Wars era, it was hard to do the water effects, and to do people writing creatures are always the toughest thing to do so I deliberately plan these big epic scenes of Waterfall City and a parade with dinosaurs, because this will never be made into live action, and just about then of course, the digital revolution was starting to happen and. I realized that maybe it would be possible took a long time, but. I think that hallmark entertainment is really gone all out to make dining topi translate to the screen. As very exciting and actually to kind of go back to your work, and we'll definitely cover the miniseries as well, but I think what impressed me, too is the amount of research that you do on on diagnosing looking at fossil's. Doors at the correct scale. Spokane actually Allah Dean Foster at one time and I know he's travelled a bit, and you do as well to kind of get that look of the city. The city is of Diner Topi as well. Yeah kind of specializes an artist in painting, realistic scenes of things that can't be photographed whether it's a historical scene from National Geographic. Or fantasy of something that we know must exist out there, but no one has ever seen I end to do that means getting a lot of of models and elements and people in Costume, and whatever it takes to essentially do almost like a single frame from from A. Movie and the fun thing about being an artist. Is that working away in your studio? You can do? All those things can be the writer and the director and the lighting person, and and put the whole thing together. Which one is your favorite dinosaur to draw? I really like Stegosaurus, because it's the most outlandish dinosaur, and when you spent a Lotta time coming up with alien design and the thing about nature. There are things in the fossil record weirder than anything. You could imagine stegosauruses one although it's a bear. Dry stegosaurus is tough because all those different plates are in different angles, and you have to just keep racing redrawing it till you get it right, but. Nevertheless I. that's one of my favorite dinosaurs. Was this a boyhood something that you liked as a boy? The dinosaurs right for me. I got into him because of a gentleman named Harry Housing Yeah I did love dinosaurs as a kid, and of course in those days they were seen as cold, blooded reptiles who lived in the swamp and I remember the picture in the time life book had the brackish source with the whole body underwater, because just the head sticking out because they said. Said well can't hold up its own weight. It could never do that and it wasn't. Until I became an adult that the new theories came along presenting dinosaurs as dynamic and warm blooded and intelligent, and just recently in the last few years. The bird dinosaur connection has really solidified so that we realize that dinosaurs had a lot of behaviors and mannerisms, and even looked a lot like birds, instead of like reptiles, that science of dinosaurs is very very much a part of Diana Topi. And Talking to paleontologists about the waves of popular interest very often, they follow these renaissance periods of discoveries which were were still in. And Dining Topa is just one way of playing without idea. What if dinosaurs are bird like dynamic and intelligent? What if we? If they were smart. What if they were wise and kind of benefit us? Somehow speaking of that I'm sure you've seen the famous I think even the Museum of Natural History in New York area here where the t rex is like standing up almost fully erect, and obviously we've found out that hey might not be that way. Part of what I love about dinosaurs is what we don't know about them. We know what the structure of their bones looks like we. We have a few skin impressions, but we don't know how. They sounded really how they moved or what color they were for a while. People were saying that Toronto could run forty miles an hour, and now an article comes out a couple of weeks ago. They'd say now they could just walk about ten miles an hour at the most, and who knows but being an artist. You talked to all the scientists and let them make their case to you and then. What seems to feel right. And what what fits with the latest discoveries, so that aspect of them as creatures of fantasy, as it were I love because we know they were real, but they require our imagination to bring them into being again..

"diner topi" Discussed on GSMC Health and Wellness Podcast

"Network. I'm your host Alex. You guys. It is the A. We're almost at the end of January at this point and I've been thinking a lot about motivation recently particularly in relationship shipped to discipline so I already regularly go to the gym. But you know I've been seeing a lot more people in there during the first few weeks of the new year been seen in a few less recently but also I've been thinking with myself and with my ex buddies for the gym How differently we approach it? He is very disciplined. And I have been relying more on motivation which I don't think his holy sustainable at this point so today. We're going to talk a little bit about motivation versus discipline. How those are different? We're going to discuss awesome motivational rewards as well as intrinsic versus extrinsic motivation. GAMIFICATION GALWAY's inner game and really just ultimately how to improve our collective motivation and self discipline to make sure that we are hitting these health and wellness goals. We're setting ourselves as we get further into the new year so far step. We're going to talk about the difference between motivation and And discipline so discipline is closer to impulse. Control discipline is doing the hard things even and win. You don't feel like it and having a routine that's what they try to instill in people in the military to make sure that even when the going gets gets tough the tough keep going discipline is going to keep going. When your motivation fails and motivation is trying? Convince yourself that you need to do it. Motivation gets you up and running but discipline is really. What keeps you on track however these traits reinforce each other they did a study with athletes? A few years back and ultimately found that long-term discipline requires motivation and short-term turn motivation requires discipline. So those you need both pretty much is what they're getting at. Your brain does not like abrupt changes news. That's why most New Year's resolutions fail. We decide that we're going to do too much too soon. And we don't really manage our expectations -tations and so we get burned out what we can do instead to help with that is to take some little steps to establish new baseline we you want to then take another little step and move the line again and making those tiny habits reestablishes a new normal so in that way you know you're not constantly only fighting to take one giant leap you're taking that small step. I one raindrop. Rays of the C.. Yes at the diner topi quote but it. It's dance so small consistent steps lead to big changes if we think about that Dina Topi a quote. One raindrop doesn't result in a whole four inches of precipitation. It's not one giant raindrop. It's lots of little raindrops consistently over time that create pools where none were before so in central Texas. You see that a lot in farm watering holes in May and October we. We won't get any rain for a long time. And then you will get a deluge and sometimes that results in natural disasters like flooding but also for the farm animals it can result in good things like their watering holes kind of filling up. And then you'll see difference in where the animals are gathering throughout the seasons. So in that way you know these little changes like these raindrops can lead to big positive changes. There here is a specific book. I WanNa talk about today. As well called drive by Daniel Pink and he talks about baseline rewards if then rewards and goals and how utilizing those different methods can help and hurt us. So there are two main types CBS of motivation and pink's book he terms extrinsic and Intrinsic Extrinsic. Motivation is like money or praise. There things that you can't necessarily give yourself whereas intrinsic motivation is like just being happy that you've accomplished a challenging task. So you know if you're coding coding or if you have been working out and trying to improve the amount of time it takes you to hit your mile mark and the joy that you get when you you finally nail that piece of code and everything goes properly and your computer or when you finally hit that ten minute mile or whatever whatever your goal is then you get that you know boost of dopamine feeling good about it that's an intrinsic motivator so there are also two different types of tasks in pink's book Algorithm Iq and ristic algorithm mix are when you have like a set path half of instructions that are going to lead to an inevitable single conclusion. The heuristic task is kind of free form. So you have to be a little creative with that. Got To complete the task so the two types of motivations are going to be different in comparison with tasks and that's going to also depend on what type of reward you're going for so if you're going for a baseline reward that means just your bare minimum. That everything else is measured off off of. So it's like your base salary at a job where you can also get benefits and perks and stuff like that. If your baseline line rewards or your base salary isn't enough then you're going to be focusing on other aspects of that job. The things that are not great or going going to seem worse by comparison because you're not inherently going to be satisfied with what you're getting for this so maybe working out for you're the ability to eat a piece of chocolate cake. Might not be enough for you because you know you get two minutes of cake. After thirty minutes of working out now we have to make sure that we are using the correct motivators and the correct amount of these motivators in order to get us to where we need to be you so creating your own baseline reward is very important for that. And that's just going to be up to you individually and what what you're comfortable with for some people chocolate cake is totally enough. I know a guy from work who works out so he can eat chicken wings. He eats a truly impressive substantial amount of chicken wings every year. He has like the awards from the chicken wing place to prove it and that is his baseline reward and that is exactly exactly what motivates him so remember to go. What for what works for you? Think about what motivates you also there if then rewards so those are when we promised must've give somebody something once specific task is completed so like if you ask your kids to go and read for thirty minutes and and then they can have thirty minutes of screen time. The problem with that is that it makes the thing that they have to do to get the reward seem seem like something that's undesirable. So now they're going to be like oh reading. A book isn't for fun. It's a thing that I have to do in order to get this other thing so in order to eat your chocolate cake you have to go and work out I. That's going to make you kind of view. You working out as a negative thing. So we want to try to avoid these contingent rewards if you are going to use rewards they really they need to be unexpected and they need to to be meted out so if you you give someone a reward every time even though that you didn't tell them upfront that they were going to get it then they are going to start expecting it. Same thing goes for or the chocolate cake. If you're going to give yourself chocolate cake every time isn't if then reward that's also a baseline for every time then. You're going to start really dreading reading that workout where you're like man. I really want that chocolate cake. I don't WanNa do the stupid workout. And we don't want to frame it that way because then we are psychologically logically setting ourselves up for failure now another way we can do. This is to use goals so goals are also an extrinsic nick motivator and they narrow our focus and so that's one reason they can be really effective but it also can make you feel like it's restricting directing your view down to that one behavior and so you're focusing too far on it so we've talked before about that internal focus focus and how that can be damaging in some ways so we wanna make sure that we don't go too far in making these goals or these rewards to to give you a hard time. We don't want them to become ineffective. We WanNa make sure that they keep working so the drive towards those goals can help you make decisions that you might not consider in another situation and that can be a double edged sword that can be a good thing and a bad thing so to make rewards work. You want them to be for routines so algorithm ACC- tasks that we talked about the ones that have a set path eight A. B. to C.. And they require not a lot of creativity or going off the beaten path for it. So if you're going to be using rewards those are going it'd be with routine tasks and they won't typically undermine your intrinsic motivation for boring tasks because there's little or no intrinsic motivation Vatian to be a problem there. You WanNa make sure that if you offer yourself an extrinsic reward that it's unexpected and only when the task is complete so you can't really plan it it's a lot easier to give others extrinsic rewards than to give yourself extrinsic rewards because because you know it's it's hard to surprise yourself to be honest so just be careful With the reward system because at a certain point it can backfire in your motivation and drive all right guys. We're going quick break and when we come back we are going coming to talk about motivational rewards. You'd ammonia and he dona beer back. Are you looking to learn.
