How to Lead a Less Hurried Life

"So Dr. Like men. Dr. Alan Lightman. Nice to meet you hear remotely I've to meet you opera. Thanks for joining us for this call to unite and also on super so conversations. From the moment I read that article that you wrote in the Atlantic recently title the viruses. A reminder of something lost long ago perfect title. Might I say I was so moved by your words. I've been wanting to talk with you about it so I'm glad we had this opportunity so before we get started. I just want to introduce you all to tell you Who Dr Lightman is? He's a physicist also a humanities professor at Mit you're known as one of the few scientists who is also a bestselling writer of novels and one who embraces spirituality. That's what got my attention. A scientist who embraces spirituality. Sounds like to me. You're a renaissance man. For Time. Such as this well the world has gotten more and more interdisciplinary so we need people that can cross discipline and talk to each other so before we talk about that article in the Atlantic and I was just sharing with you before we that the Atlantic is doing a great job on covert you there so nonpartisan you. You spill the truth in them. I wanted to ask you about an experience that you wrote about in one of your books. Call for the stars on an island in Maine. So you're on a boat at night on the ocean when you had a transformative transcendent experience. Share that with our audience. Will you will. I was coming back to an island late at night after midnight and a clear night and there was no one out on the water and I turned off the engine of the boat and got even quieter than turn off the running lights of the boat in got even darker and I lay down in the boat and just looked up at the sky. And just you just you just me just me on about after midnight. I lay down on the boat and looked up at the at the sky and I felt like I was falling into infinity. I felt like I was merging with the stars and not only with the stars I felt like I was merging with the cosmos was an incredible feeling. I felt like I was part of something larger than myself. And I've been scientists all of my life and But I realized later the Dow was a an experienced it was really not reducible by the methods of science. The feeling that I had of being connected to something big because science does always out to prove a thing. And you're saying that just the experience itself for you and anyone else. Who has that experience? That is proof enough. That's the authority lies the experience itself. No-one can negate the experience that you have. That's pretty amazing coming from scientists. So we're living in a world now at a time where a scientific facts as we can tell from. Every news organization are more important than ever for albro from all the information that we're getting we're living in a time where scientific fact is so important but you say that there is actually room for us understand that there is an invisible and as we just said unprovable but real connection between all living things in the universe. Can you explain a little bit more about that? Well i'd like to distinguish between the physical universe. Which is the subject of science? And what what I might call the spiritual universe and by spiritual universe. I mean the collection of all of those experience that we have where were tied to something larger than ourselves. I'm not talking about organized religion on talking about this very vital personal experience like the one I had lying in the boat and Maine looking up at the stars where we feel connected to things bigger than ourselves and those are two domains the scientists in spiritual h had their own region of validity. Up questions like how old is the earth or what is the cause of climate? Change those light in the physical realm and they are the the realm of science but there are other human experiences that we have like the one we describe lying about looking at the stars that that are not reducible by science and the report of some other world some other existence. I think that's one of the things that connects us as people. Well you know. It's interesting what you describe in the boat. I had an experience like that in two thousand six. I was walking along a road in Maui in an area where the cloud had come down and it was like we were walking through the clouds. You could see only through the cloud. Just a sliver of a of moon and it looked like the moon and my friend said Oh that looks like the DreamWorks Moon. You could put boy up there with a fishing pole and you could just see the sliver of the moon and as we're walking it became so still that I tell you just thinking about. It makes my eyes water. It became so still that I felt that thing that you're talking about in the boat where I felt a connection between all time all life all sp it just felt. I felt expanded. I felt like I felt like I was a part of the clouds. So that's one thing you're talking about. Yes that's the same thing and I think many I think all of us have had experiences like this One of the aspects of the experience you're describing and I imagine you felt to is. Is You you lose your body. You lose track of your ego you lose track of yourself you lose track of time. It's a beautiful experience is Dr Lightman. Is that just a glimpse? That's just a glimpse of what at what is right. That's a glimpse at the full present moment that we speak. So much of this is a tiny little glimpse. Just please call me Alan. Yes that's Okay Allen Dr Allen. Now that we're talking about transcendent experiences we should be. Yeah Yeah it's a glimpse it's a glimpse of something and of course we don't know with that larger thing is. Einstein said someone asked him whether he was a spiritual person or believe or something and he said I feel like we are children going into a library and we see a lot of books in the library written in different languages and we don't. We can't read the books but we know that somehow they got there that something produced those books. Yeah you know. I'm thinking that this pandemic as a massive reset for the world and I know that you believe that we have a chance to choose a less hurried life. Now you wrote about that in the Atlantic article and you write that we've been living too fast. We have sold our inner cells to the devil of speed efficiency. Money hyper connectivity progress. I know you are a whole book on this topic. Call in praise of wasting time but this time that we have white now. Do you think that this is a perfect time to be reset and to do what we're talking about? Be more united. Yeah well I think there is a silver lining to the the virus and then of course when you say that you have to. I acknowledge the tremendous human suffering. This going on the billions of people don't even have clean water to wash their hands so millions of people who've lost their jobs people lost their jobs and we need to celebrate the the care workers and the people working in grocery stores. That are keeping everything going. You know what this time has done. It is allowed us to see that the people who you for for many people overlooked and were just a part of your daily life how necessary everyone is more your life to be lived comfortably and well yes yes it gives us a greater appreciation of the end of an invisible people that make our lives run But I think that there might be one or two silver linings to this devastation. And one of them is that it is forcing many of us to slow down Of course you have to have a certain amount of privilege to be able to slow down. But I hope that we can become conscious of of the frenzy of our normal lifestyle. Where most of the Runaround checking off items on our to do list Being connected to the grid. Twenty four seven. Everything is scheduled up and we haven't had the time to think about who we are to reflect on what's important to us To be quiet and still and I I believe that one of the possible benefits of this period. We're going through now. Is that it's forcing some of us to slow down

Empty Cinemas and the Streaming Giants

"Prices aside. Going to the movie theater was an escape all entertainment all no matter what entertainment you like whether it's opera whether it's rap concert whether it's a wrestling match whether it's a boxing match whether it's a fight over the last Good Glass of drinking water in Flint Michigan. It doesn't matter what it is. Yeah all entertainment is an escape from your life. It is entertainment it's supposed to entertain you no matter what it is and what the movie theaters. It was a place to go other than your home. You could go and sit in fairly decent seats for the most part over the years they've upgraded. They've done the stadium seated things and everything else. And it's cool when it's whatever some theaters still having upgraded sadly but you could go for two hours or sometimes less than sometimes more and watch a movie and be fine and happy for me help. I approached going to the theater unless I was with my mom or somebody or other people I would go at the most opportune time for me. Which was mostly like one o'clock in the afternoon eastern time on a Monday morning when everybody's just getting back from lunch and going back to work so basically the feeder would be empty because nobody should be there at one o'clock in the afternoon on Monday morning take any number of transformers live action films. I think I saw a little ones. I did see in theaters. I saw two of them the Monday after they released. And there is nobody in the theater because I am not a person that likes crowds at all. You know you mentioned last week about the introvert. Extrovert thing I'm both I but generally I prefer to be away from people. I've been social distancing. Since I was ten years old but the movie theater it was cool. It was great. You could get something to eat if you wanted to or drinkers snack or whatever. Generally I never got drinks because I didn't want to be that more on that. Got Up in the middle of the Movie Day because he had to go to the bathroom kind of I hate. I hate that so it was great. It was cool. It was something on a large screen and it was fun. Going to theaters and lately hasn't been so much fun because it costs so much. Yeah and the thing is to like being wor am in my point in life. I just don't have time to go and it's not really on my radar like so generally do wait for streaming and do. I love the experience of going to the theater. Yes because honestly there's nothing quite like it because you get the giant screen you get the surround sound you get the the full immersion into it whereas when you're at home you know you have distractions you use your phone you You may be doing something else while you're watching it like. I have two monitors like generally I'll play a game on one a watch net flicks on the other end. So it's kind of a toss up of what I'm paying attention to But that being said Other than when I lived in the Flint area in having annoying person that had like the loudest freaking bags of food in the world Crackling around me. Or that couldn't stop talking on their phone or stop talking in general So you could get immersed in it I genuinely didn't joy going especially for something that I liked like. You know the Star Trek Cord you know I saw star wars in there for a while and then I didn't see the last one but in the theater but But Yeah I mean there. There was a lot of reasons to go the only problem that I see now that they've had to utterly close aside from the fact they're going to have to do a deep clean when they opened back up because of cobwebs is that. S- we've had hit that point where instead of billion dollar box offices we have zero dollar box office and you went from having like back in the day they were lake. You know okay. We would have like a couple of huge movies every month. And you know you'd have like kind of a rotating panel of some movies every week. You know enough for like every day of the week pretty much instead of having like anywhere from fifteen to twenty movies. Come out every week. Which is what we were getting. Honestly it'll majority of them with the platform that we're on now with having streaming in movie theaters about half of those should go streaming because there's a lot of them that are not strong enough contenders for the theater. And they're somewhere. You should be fully immersed in being the theater for them and I it's it's GonNa be really telling when this is over when this whole pandemic over because the large that this huge monumental amount of movie theaters that are shut down across the globe. Some of the services like NBC. The they're they're peacock service. They have Nbc Universal granted NBC and universal are both owned by comcast who's also a cable company in ISP and Just content providers well They broke the theatrical window which they've been trying to do for years Even as comcast before they went and they've been trying to break this for years in like paper view movies where you get them immediately. Well now they can actually do that because they have their own service and they can use their xfinity x. one is they will make movies. Available on demand immediately says Granted you know dreamworks? The trolls movie. That came out man. It's it says that you know insiders say the movie isn't a blanket policy for the studios and tear twenty twenty calendar in that decisions regarding other titles and the duration of the policy haven't been made yet But I I have a feeling that we're going to start. Seeing kind of a trickle down effect of certain movies immediately going this route And what they're doing to compensate is this is movies will be made available on a wide variety of on-demand services for a forty eight hour rental period at a suggested retail price of nine hundred ninety nine in other words the same would be to buy the DVD when it comes in they're saying in the US and the price of quivalent whatever it is in the international markets The they're basically saying that it's They're also trying to provide options for consumers who cannot or should not go to the cinemas Which I kind of like that option to see it from home however think that they're charging that much because it's a new release and YOU'RE GONNA be watching it from your home flakes convenience of it in there. Estimating that would be buying the estimated that you would be buying enough tickets for everyone in your family but yeah I don't I don't know like it's it doesn't seem that bad all right so anyways. I was stating that the nineteen thousand nine suggested retail price for for forty eight hour rental window for the movies while I liked the concept and the idea because I have a feeling this is going to stick around win the theaters. Come back Whether they all come back or not is a different story. But I have a feeling that this is going to stick because they've been trying to get this market for quite some time and to have this readily available now right. I think that it's GONNA stick. And for for instance for me like I don't go to the theater because I don't have time to go now. Granted when I go it's usually solo anyway and so that would be like seven or eight dollars. You know. Drop RIGHT THERE. So nine hundred ninety nine is not bad. If you're having the whole family watch it like I kind of get it there. But I can't see a lot of people lake generation or younger paying twenty bucks a month to go see every new movie that comes out to be honest like especially when there's other means that China provides you know alter Geeky caster network do not adhere to stolen China viruses. No or you know. They're pirates. Yeah but like I I. Honestly don't care I'll wait until hit streaming and then watch it legitimately but but yeah. So like they're they're talking like all these different companies or having To kind of shift their paradigm of how. They're going to do things or you know like. Mgm was the first to make a major shift when pushing the James Bond Movie. No time to die from late. April to November in hopes that it will still come out in the theater so and then you know like there's some other movies that have shifted from this year to this time next year trying to avoid it so it's it's GonNa be kind of a interesting time with the theaters kind of trying to predict what directions they're going but I do know that if people do not return to them after they opened back up that it's going to collapse this entire system of Louis

Universal Pictures will make movies available at home and in theaters on the same day

"Universal pictures will make its movies available on home entertainment on the same day as films global theatrical releases the initiative will kick off with DreamWorks animation's trolls world tour which is scheduled to debut on April tenth in U. S. the company will also make films that are currently in theaters available on demand starting Friday love it these films include the hunter the invisible man and Emma the films will be available for a forty eight hour rental period at a suggested retail price of nineteen yeah there it is that's how they're gonna make their money yeah they could have done they could have done more they're gonna lose a ton of money on this they will lose tons of money but it's cool thing to do and you increase the price that there was a solicitor who looked into doing a few years ago for fifty dollars and their suggestion was by the time you go to the movie and you get your snacks and all that kind of stuff if you have a couple people people over I thought nineteen ninety nine is the perfect price for this and he said the reason why they're doing it and not just opening later in the laying it is because they're already looking at what is going to be just a confused bloated movie scheduled us late summer great idea especially if you have a family that is a good price if you're one person watching the movie I

Quibi spending more than a billion wading into streaming wars. Luring subscribers will be key.

"QUBE was founded by former Disney Disney executive producer. Jeffrey Katzenberg Meg. Whitman is CEO. They gave a big presentation about the service last week at sea. Yes in yes Las Vegas. They've raised more than a billion dollars and signed up a lot of big name. Talent to create all new shows and movies but no video will be longer than ten minutes. At a time. I spoke to what minutes and she told me queries. Secret sauce is all new technology. I asked her to tell me how it works. Well the first thing is you know. People people are watching a video on on their mobile phone today but it's an uneven experience. Sometimes if you're holding the phone portrait it's a little postage stamp size than u-turn horizontally. It's got big black line. Some content is only available. Portrait sums only available in landscaping said for our use case on the go. Viewing we have to be able to have seamless portrait to landscape rotation with full screen video. And we figured out that it had to really be what we call script to screen innovation because the creators have to film a little bit differently. They have have to look at a shot and they have to say how will that shot looking portrait. How look landscape and then we make two edits of the movie? You Could Watch the movie and portrait or the whole movie and landscape but the gyroscope interscope in your phone knows which way you're holding the phone so we can show you the right editor of the movie and so we thought all right. We'll have the edit of the portrait the editor the landscape and we were going to run both in the background on your phone except for them. We figured out it would eat way too much bandwith and way too much battery life Susan. Okay got any other ideas us on how we can do this. And ultimately it came down to a kind of compression technology that when you are watching in portrait your landscape version is compressed and this is never been done before we have patents on it and that's why the experience is so seemless an so engrossing and then we shot obviously to the aspect ratio of the phone. Is there price pressure. Now I feel like Disney is putting a lot of pressure on a lot of services and you're launching at five dollars a month with ads eight dollars a month without. Yeah I'M GONNA have to come down. I don't know you know it's four ninety nine a month with ads seven ninety nine a month without ads we think that You know member we're going after millennial audience you know eighteen to forty four. We think that most will pick the ad-supported version because it's very light add load. It's only a two and a half minutes per hour of watching which is much less than prime time. TV which is seventeen and a half minutes of advertising for every hour that you watch and so for ninety nine we think is a good value for this premium content on their mobile phone and for those people who really don't want advertising. We felt like we should offer an ad free version Russian at seven ninety nine. Yeah so then. D expect that most of the revenue will be generated by the subscription We think that that will be obviously the base case. And we'll see how this works out. I think the majority will be subscription revenue But we'll see what made you sort of land on this idea of ten minutes for a long time in video radio. It was two minutes and then Youtube went to ten minutes for mid roll purposes. Is it for mid roll purposes. Like how did you sort of land on the part of this judgment but at the data that we used is it turns out that the average session length for the population worldwide except for China is actually six minutes so think about it to be spent five hours hours a day on your phone. You're picking up that phone a lot of different times and the average session six minutes. It's a little bit longer in China. So he said six minutes. So you know maybe our goodies. Abe's we call our content. Qubit should be between five and a maximum of ten. Can I watch on TV. You at launch. He will be able to chrome cast like you'll built casts is to your TV but we at launch will not have a unique apple TV or chrome. Google TV APP PER SE. Because really we think this is mobile. Only and when you think back to this portrait to landscape seamless full screen video. Think about it part of the joy of this. Is You get on the bus holding your phone portrait. Then you watch you know On the bus and horizontal then get off and you go back to portrait most people's. TV's are not going to go back and forth and So we think this is sort of an interesting thing new way to view and is uniquely suited to the mobile phone and then what about the content race. I mean that can be you know. I've been in content longtime. Yes it can be a little bit of money pit. Yes and you know and there's no built in library necessarily archive that you're working from. How do you win that battle? Yeah well you're right. There is no we will be the first streaming services that launches without a library. Because think about it. You can't take sixty minute television show and just chop it up into You know six ten minutes segments is all has to be shot for turnstile which is new and has to be written if it's a movie and chapters that has to be written in a chapter optimized version so it's all new which we think is actually exciting and fun but we have to make a lot of content. Because you can't come to see two or three things you have to field there's a world of richness and a lot of genres and you know we have quite a unique content strategy and so we have Maybe invested did significantly in content. And this is all about finding the great stories Attaching the great actors and actresses to it and getting them excited sighted about doing something entirely new so we will launch with In the first year. One hundred and seventy-five original shows every day we will will produce commission from our partners Three hours of new fresh content every single day which is thirty five five percent more than a network does in prime time so there's a lot of fresh daily new content on the on the APP which I think will keep people. We'll keep coming back for that. At least that's what we hope I mean I am listening to this as a person who does the daily show. And I'm thinking either your geniuses or you're crazy well here's the thing remember. We don't make any content ourselves. You make your own content for that I do. We have to pay for it. But we are leveraging leveraging the expertise of our craters studios were leveraging for our daily essentials where we curate news and sports and weather and lifestyle. We're we're leveraging the infrastructure of our excellent partners right and And so that makes a bit easier but but we have a budget. And we've we've planned for that and and you know we think that will Be The budget for the first year. Talk to me a little bit about the content. So do you anticipate that people will make short versions of things that they may be. Five years later turned into. Oh a longer project longer project. Let me give you an analogy in another medium that you will totally get Do you remember the Davinci Code. Yep The DAVINCI code is four hundred sixty four pages just one hundred and five chapters. Every chapter in the Davinci code is five pages because eighteen years ago. Dan Brown said people are not reading for forty five minutes now. They're probably not even reading for thirty and he said if you've got five minutes I want you to read one chapter got ten minutes. I want you to read two chapters but the thing I do not want you to do is stop in the middle of a chapter but nothing was lesser about the Davinci code other the length of its chapter so we like to say our movies. Nothing's lesser about the movies other than the chapter is the way we deliver them and then we have You know as I described our daily the essentials which we hope will create the daily consumption habit. We're going to curate. You know. Twenty five daily shows every single day From talk shows to horoscope go to news to whether to sports excetera and then The other kind of content we have is this unscripted episodic and documentary three shows and a perfect example. There is Chrissy. Teigen is doing a show her favourite show as it turns out of judge. Judy so she came to us and said I want to do Christie's Court and the tagline is no claim is too small and dumb and each claim will be ten minutes or eight minutes and And she's super excited about it and you by the way you can. You can't in our movies you've got to watch them. The episodes in particular order. But Christie's court you could watch in any order because they're not related to each other episodic so you really have like snack bowl and binge. Yes kind of covered exactly. Yeah okay why are you here. Yeah I mean considering your background ground what drew you to this. Yeah well I've been friends with Jeffrey. For thirty years. We worked at the Walt Disney Company together back in the day and then When I was at Ebay I sat sat on his DreamWorks Animation Board? So Jeffrey and I've been friends for a long time. And when he heard I was stepping down from HP after six and a half years. I told the board I would say five years. He called me and he said would you ever consider coming down and being the CEO of Qube. I said well I don't know I've gotta you know so. He came up and had dinner and at the end of dinner. Three hour dinner. I said this is a really good idea. It's a really good idea because what I look for in new consumer tech businesses. Is I look for other trends right. Trends are absolutely right is the market large. The market's gigantic back. And is there you know. Are you changing consumer behavior or are you just taking people to a premium level and is there a sustainable ainable what I call a sustainable competitive advantage. Meaning if we're successful and everyone else comes in how. How do we continue to win? And how how is that is that through the intellectual property. Well there's actually Largely through our relationships with our studios It is first mover advantage for sure and we have to learn how to how to create create this platform. And we've had to teach craters how to do it so we think we have A lot of barriers to entry because we will be out first by a pretty wide margin

You can't take sixty minute television show and just chop it up into You know six ten minutes segments is all has to be shot for turnstile which is new and has to be written if it's a movie and chapters that has to be written in a chapter optimized version so it's all new which we think is actually exciting and fun but we have to make a lot of content. Because you can't come to see two or three things you have to field there's a world of richness and a lot of genres and you know we have quite a unique content strategy and so we have Maybe invested did significantly in content. And this is all about finding the great stories Attaching the great actors and actresses to it and getting them excited sighted about doing something entirely new so we will launch with In the first year. One hundred and seventy-five original shows every day we will will produce commission from our partners Three hours of new fresh content every single day which is thirty five five percent more than a network does in prime time so there's a lot of fresh daily new content on the on the APP which I think will keep people. We'll keep coming back for that. At least that's what we hope I mean I am listening to this as a person who does the daily show. And I'm thinking either your geniuses or you're crazy well here's the thing remember. We don't make any content ourselves. You make your own content for that I do. We have to pay for it. But we are leveraging leveraging the expertise of our craters studios were leveraging for our daily essentials where we curate news and sports and weather and lifestyle. We're we're leveraging the infrastructure of our excellent partners right and And so that makes a bit easier but but we have a budget. And we've we've planned for that and and you know we think that will Be The budget for the first year. Talk to me a little bit about the content. So do you anticipate that people will make short versions of things that they may be. Five years later turned into. Oh a longer project longer project. Let me give you an analogy in another medium that you will totally get Do you remember the Davinci Code. Yep The DAVINCI code is four hundred sixty four pages just one hundred and five chapters. Every chapter in the Davinci code is five pages because eighteen years ago. Dan Brown said people are not reading for forty five minutes now. They're probably not even reading for thirty and he said if you've got five minutes I want you to read one chapter got ten minutes. I want you to read two chapters but the thing I do not want you to do is stop in the middle of a chapter but nothing was lesser about the Davinci code other the length of its chapter so we like to say our movies. Nothing's lesser about the movies other than the chapter is the way we deliver them and then we have You know as I described our daily the essentials which we hope will create the daily consumption habit. We're going to curate. You know. Twenty five daily shows every single day From talk shows to horoscope go to news to whether to sports excetera and then The other kind of content we have is this unscripted episodic and documentary three shows and a perfect example. There is Chrissy. Teigen is doing a show her favourite show as it turns out of judge. Judy so she came to us and said I want to do Christie's Court and the tagline is no claim is too small and dumb and each claim will be ten minutes or eight minutes and And she's super excited about it and you by the way you can. You can't in our movies you've got to watch them. The episodes in particular order. But Christie's court you could watch in any order because they're not related to each other episodic so you really have like snack bowl and binge. Yes kind of covered exactly. Yeah okay why are you here. Yeah I mean considering your background ground what drew you to this. Yeah well I've been friends with Jeffrey. For thirty years. We worked at the Walt Disney Company together back in the day and then When I was at Ebay I sat sat on his DreamWorks Animation Board? So Jeffrey and I've been friends for a long time. And when he heard I was stepping down from HP after six and a half years. I told the board I would say five years. He called me and he said would you ever consider coming down and being the CEO of Qube. I said well I don't know I've gotta you know so. He came up and had dinner and at the end of dinner. Three hour dinner. I said this is a really good idea. It's a really good idea because what I look for in new consumer tech businesses. Is I look for other trends right. Trends are absolutely right is the market large. The market's gigantic back. And is there you know. Are you changing consumer behavior or are you just taking people to a premium level and is there a sustainable ainable what I call a sustainable competitive advantage. Meaning if we're successful and everyone else comes in how. How do we continue to win? And how how is that is that through the intellectual property. Well there's actually Largely through our relationships with our studios It is first mover advantage for sure and we have to learn how to how to create create this platform. And we've had to teach craters how to do it so we think we have A lot of barriers to entry because we will be out first by a pretty wide margin

"dreamworks" Discussed on The Animated Journey: Interviews with Animation Professionals

"It was more of the big picture so I decided that I wanted to move more into that direction and was lucky enough to land a job at Nickelodeon as a story board revisionists on a show called chalk zone from there to make a long story longer. I guess it's so hard to skip the details so much So so basically from there. I ended up doing two shorts. For Frederick later this journey involved finding out that I also wanted to create my own shows create my own characters. Not just bring other people's ideas to life so I ended up coming up with t shirts that I did. For Frederick which aired on nickelodeon those shorts were seen by hi. Dan Palmyra one of the creators of finis verb so he hired me onto fitness. And for which is where I became not just Artists but also writer and then I'm from there started doing more development developing Disney projects that didn't end up going to series at that time but they brought enough recognition to my being able to develop something and so I was given the opportunity to not only direct descendants but be a CO executive producer so having gone from being artists and being a writer to then being co executive onto sense. What were some of the skills that you had to learn but you can make that jump? Well I think there's a couple of things. One is practically speaking boarding on a show like finance and for where we weren't just arrest following the script. It's what we call a board driven show so we were given an outline but then we had to write our own dialogue let alone story boarded so in a way we had an opportunity to be Kinda mini director of our own projects. So I think whether it's on a show like how you're doing it for yourself you're writing and boarding bring your own ideas and your own shorts that helps give you some skills to be able to go beyond kind of what you're handed from there. I think also so pitching and developing really helped me because although at that time my projects that were in development did not move forward. I learned a lot about development. I learned how to work with development executives. I learned how to take notes. I learned how to take characters that were the beginnings of an idea and bring them out into fruition and so I learned some of the more conceptual Ways of bringing a project to life on top of the more practical technical parts of it and I think that you know with descendents. I began as director and I had a right before that I directed Dr Lollipop freighter so I started off where I was just directing but as my skills grew not only again technically speaking but kind of like the people part of it the working with the executive team the looking at the big picture the focus on a bigger vision. I think I think that's where the studio recognized. I I could make that move into being a CO executive producer as well. That's excellent. How did you get those stores to open? And it seems like you've worked with a lot of studios. You're working at Disney Frederick Nickelodeon. Now you're at dreamworks. I know a lot of our listeners. Just find it hard hard to open those stores and you're wearing a lot of hats and I think you have to be a little bit of a big mouth you know. You have to be an advocate for yourself herself so one time you know. Even Harvey there was the P. A.. That she's really awesome. Really organized released sweet really supportive at the end of the production. She you told me that she wanted to get into storyboarding I had no idea and I said to her like this whole time you could have been doing tests and I would have worked with you. You could have brought your test to me and you you know. Now I know but I didn't know this whole time and so you know I was like I felt like it was long overdue for me. I wanted direct way before I actually got to trek so I just kept talking about it. I wanted to wanted wanted. I told everybody and I also I just made the decision that I don't know how to say us but that I was going to be a leader and so I asked him. What does the leader look like? A leader takes initiative. A leader supports the team. A leader speaks up a leader Suits at the table. A leader isn't afraid to approach executives and have constructive dialogue with them. A leader isn't afraid of criticism and feedback back just kind of started looking for ways to just be a leader before I was one and I think that actually made a huge difference. It's so that when the time came. I think that people felt like yeah she could do thus. That's excellent advice and really good for anybody to know not like you do your work. Well that's one thing but you have to let people know it's not a thing of just I'm just GonNa sit here and do it well and hope that they pay attention. No now it just doesn't happen like there's a lot. There are a lot of talented people in our industry There are a lot of people who quote unquote deserve to be there. But they either don't want to be or they haven't told anybody that they want to be or they've developed those technical skills problem. I see a lot of technical. Schools are developed but then when it comes down to communicating with the team or being able to take feedback from executives and communicate with them. You know there's this whole other part heard of it or or you know to find solutions when problems come up on the production. That's like a whole other part of it. That doesn't just rely on your technical OSCO very true. So then moving from working at Disney to them working at dreamworks. What was the process of you coming on and working working on Harvey Girls On? That was kind of interesting because you know I came back to Disney. After I had left during the feature time went to Nickelodeon had a great time there. I came back to Disney for Finnish verb then descendants and had really developed incredible relationships with my colleagues at Disney and felt not really happy uncomfortable there but my the season had come to an end on descendants and a project that I had with development with them also came to an end and my manager really encouraged me. I was looking at possibly doing the next season of descendants on but my manager had just said you know what you've been Here for a while and you might want to just be open to some meetings and again neither of US really looking for me to make a move. It was just like reach out. Connect with some new people just how some conversations and see what's going on out there so I heard a lot of really amazing interesting meetings and reconnections that people had worked within the past and really got to see how in a way I think my nose had just been to the grind and I hadn't really noticed what I had done and what I had accomplished in my career but everybody he also had so all of a sudden. I was looking at these people that were like. Do you want to develop a movie with us and possibly directed and then another. You know. We're starting this division. And did you want to maybe be a development executive and help us start this decision and then so these really amazing opportunities and it was actually hard for me because I do love love Disney so with dreamworks. The meeting that I had here it was with a few executives that presented a few projects to me. And when Beth cannon and presented Harvey to me I just fall in love. I fell in love with what it could be. It had a lot of elements of something that I I really wanted to do. And my time in our industry and that is create a show that has three you know it had three girl real characters at its center. But it wasn't that any of the girl characters were the girl one. They were distinctly different characters unique into themselves. And that's just something something I've always wanted to do as crater cartoony cartoon with girl characters so there was a a writer. Emily Brundige who's involved in had developed a take that I really fell in love with and again I still kinda like. I don't know if I really would leave Disney and go do this but I really was pulled into this project and and Kinda. I just saw what was happening at dreamworks. This exciting time where everything was just kind of exploding with with the Netflix deal and the projects that were coming in here and and the people that were so passionate a lot of female leaders at Dreamworks Female Decision Makers that I found to be really inspiring so I decided not. Just take that leap of faith and come join the team. It's been incredible. That's really exciting. And it's it's great to hear too that they recognized. Good is your talent and what you were doing and that there was a project that fit in because having seen you know some of your other shorts some of your other work like you really have champion like kids and girls and different people being involved. Yeah yeah that's really important to me. Wanted to find out to harvey girls. Some of my listeners may notice but some of our listeners may not so harvey girls are part of Harvey Comics established comic spin around since the forties of Y'all are familiar with Casper and Wendy or baby Huey and whatnot. It's in the same realm is that So what are some of the exciting things and what were some of the challenges of taking comic characters that already existed and now putting them in this brand new world show too good question. I mean a place that I found inspiration. Asian was the Disney Mickey shorts. I was so lucky I got to do a Minnie mouse short. That was part of the and what I notice was was. The team had taken Mickey Mouse and found a way to haven't element of the throwback. So it was you know it was cartoony the and fun and just felt cartoon driven but there was still an update and it's sensibility and timing and scenarios so I thought about without a lot with Harvey Like I said Emily Brundige had agreed. Take on that. She started with this show and then it was with taking it. Further and to moving into our animated production it was just really finding that balance between. Let's make sure we have a nod to the past where this is a two D animation. It's squash and stretchy. We have these recognizable characters. We have elements of their personality. That we're keeping the same but then let's update it where there are themes that are apropos for today's world we made the decision to you know dot as is an African American character. Lada although she is you know this wonderfully voluptuous character. She's not her personality isn't eating which was in the past. It was just that she eats a lot so now. It's not that she eats a lot. She's just has like a zest and a passion for life. So we made these adjustments that you know no. We didn't completely S- throwaway who they were but we recognize out there needed to be some updates and so we went for it and when I say we that means My my partner in Crime Brendan Very Cool. And one of the other things that I love about the show is I feel like I'm watching actual actual children. I don't feel like I'm watching. Like adults and children sues. And so how y'all able to infuse like you know. This feels like the street that I grew uh-huh skins are doing some of the stuff that we used to do. Kids so high. Were y'all able to bring that element into well. We say that this show is what childhood feels like with childhood. Felt like so the skies are pink because that feels like childhood and you know the show takes place at that special time like after school but before bedtime because that childhood right there though that time with your friends out on the street or the coldest sack when and you're just get you just get to be free and be a kid so we thought about that a lot and then in the writer's room there there was a lot of talk about you know like writers their own childhood so they brought in their own stories into play and really drew upon their own experiences as a child. That's good and I noticed too because it was been watching season. One that it was originally like Harvey Street kids and then became harvey girls. I heard that like originally. y'All have kind of wanted to be Harvard girl. So how can you able to bring back the original title. And I thought that's really interesting. Being part of the show story basically it was originally Harvey Girls and when the studio had done some testing had audience take take a look what was found. was that boys and girls loved the show equally and the hope was to have a title that brought everybody in it. It was so much about the street. The street street you know Harvey streets the best place to be the best place to be a kid takes place on the street. We have all these other ensemble characters actors that we wanted to focus on so as we started thinking about this bigger picture of inclusion in that sense the title was changed but then as we. So you know went through season one. It was like well you know at the end of the day. This really is about the girls. This really is about like focusing on the girls so no matter who these other characters are that that comment and and bringing in Richie rich and such it still is about the girls. It's still about harvey girls forever. It's still the girls being in best friends forever. So that was the fun decision of the fun reason for Wiley made that decision. I was just wondering about you. Mentioned that the writers bring in their own stories and your own stories from your childhood just thinking about that. Process are the board artists in on some of the they you know inject some of their own stories on your percent. Yeah so we had a table read with every single episode and board artists. Jason Director was invited to that. So we you know we really wanted the team to build on each other's ideas so it wasn't about like you know so the writer wrote this thing and now it's cold and it can't be changed like we really work together like board artists would run into the writer's room. The writers would run over to the board artists and talk so Everybody was constantly building on each other's idea so even when aboard artis got a script if they.

"Television film and Games. I'm your host Angela and Swinger and Jeff Schutz. Nice to see you again Jeff. Nice to see you handle what's been going on in your world. Let's see got a new job. That's darts tomorrow. What is your new? I don't know if I can say just yet But it has to do with sports has to do with basketball. There's animation it and it is not space jam because I keep you've joking with you that oh it's space jam. No but it's really spaced. You know it's not no it's much smaller. It's on a much smaller scale but it should be fun and hopefully I can talk about it. You know as it gets closer to coming out. That's really cool. Yeah yeah non space jam project totally. But it's been fun I've been doing you know a lot of gesture drawing and stuff watching a lot of basketball which I am not a sports guy. How is that had experience? It's cool. I mean aspiring artists and animators. And all that story board artist should be watching sports for a lot of gesture drawing. Because you know as I'm drawing these basketball players my you know that'd be a cool spiderman pose. This is cool hero post. You can just get so match out of just as you can drying regular normal everyday people when you're at the coffee shop just drawing as much different drink kinds of things to just going on. TV and drying even just drawing it for camera angles and lighting and all that stuff drawing sports parts and stuff has really just kind of giving me a whole different way of looking at things so yeah it's been great. That's awesome yeah and now I know a little bit more about basketball tall which yeah I did not expect to be checking out right now. Now you will become a championship free through well. I just totally promoting about it. Either I was like free throw person. That's the proper term. Throw that ball over the goalposts. It's all I'm so sad anyway. Have you been up to. And I've been working on a lot of cool projects of which I'll be able to talk about them a little more in the next episode but also really excited to announce that volume eight of loud house. Graphic novel came out so it's published by paper cuts in conjunction with Nickelodeon and so a bunch of us on the loud house team as well as freelancers on other nickelodeon teams and freelancers outside the studio. Who are Super Rad? An awesome that you guys should check out how all was contributed so I had an opportunity to write two stories. That was very happy about so you guys can check that out. It's going to be on Amazon and also the paper cuts website and I believe Burns and noble like target dot com. Any place where you can get graphic novels or books. You'll be able to find mindless so make sure to check that out. That's really cool. Yeah it's it's really neat being able to you know I grew up reading comics and watching cartoons and now how I work on comics and cartoons. I'll come full circle so it's pretty interesting. Yeah and you did some artwork for a previous graphic novel level of loud house but this one year writing. How did that? What's the difference between those two not a really big difference? I've actually been writing since volume four and so I worked on volumes. Four through eight and so really it would just to. The determining factor was time so down volume eight because I was working on other projects that I had a ton of classes over the summer. I didn't have time to draw and for me writing a lot faster than drawing so what I did was I just wrote alone and then submitted it to the publisher and then they found people to draw and actually one of the artists on the comics is Wayan who earlier so that was really cool and the other artists I Jordan. WHO's now over at Warner Brothers? So yeah so it was really cool getting to see their work. Bring the words to life but yeah it's at least for paper cuts. It's basically just you submit what your ideas says are and then because I have a background in writing already do that I could right so it was just a matter of. Would you like to write and draw men. Would you like to do just one or the other. And then I imagine this similar for other comic book companies once. You have an established relationship where you're working on on a show but you submit your ideas and then based on a little bit different for us because we also have a show and has to go through legal and they have to make sure that we don't have an episode. That's coming up with that same idea so it has to be different from the show but it also has to fit in with the tone of the book so previous previous volumes. They had adventures. Were just in the house or the adventures. Were just in the van or the adventures. We're going to be here or they're going to be with the Casagrande's Sundays and so they would pick stories based on what the theme of the book is going to be. And that's one of the things that your publisher will work with you on too is they'll ask askew. Hey Ver this volume. This is the theme we're going for. Can you come up with some ideas that fit in with that theme you come up with awesome ideas you pitch back and forth them and the ones that they like her the ones that you write or draw and what scratch that creative. It's more to do like drawing or writing more four or both that. I like drawings number. One writing is definitely a very close number two for me and I tend to write and draw my own stuff all the time. I'm writing and drying my own comic. I write and draw my own pilots and boards for personal projects. So for me they work really well together. And it's actually something that I've been doing since I was a little kid and then previous career. That's what I did was writing editing. So it's not it's not a foreign concept right not super cool. Yeah and then speaking of comics were really happy to have our guest today because this was definitely a treat. We had an opportunity to sit down with a leaky theo. felow Lewis and and we're very excited to sit with her. She is one of the CO show runners of harvey girls forever which is a dreamworks television. Show which is streaming right now on Netflix. They recently dropped season three and we were very excited to talk to her. As some of you out there may no- harvey girls forever as based off of the Harvey Comex which are creators. Casper and Wendy and baby. Huey and Richie rich and also Audrey Lada and dots. Who are the three stars of Harvey Harvey Girls Forever? So I just want to give a shout out to Brendan. Hey who's the other show runner. WHO also helped us put this interview together as well as the wonderful? Pr Team over at dreamworks. which allowed us the Komo over to the studio and meet with a leaky? You guys are GonNa love hearing from her. She is a Disney veteran. She worked on all of your favorite Disney Disney animated features and. He's also directed quite a few of her own shorts and she's done voice acting. She's done writing. She writes songs. She does everything everything. Yeah she's Emmy nominated. I think writing song for his verb. Yeah so awesome. I mean she had so many cool stories and yes. She's been in the industry so long that it was just great being able to talk with her and plus being on the dreamworks campus was fun and it was just a a cool little afternoon. We had yeah so without further ado. We are very happy to present episode ninety nine interview with a leaky theophilos us. Hello everyone so. We are here today at dreamworks interviewing the supervising producer and Co show runner. Hardy Girls earls Aliki. Theo Philo Polis. Aliki thank you so much for coming on the show today. Here's so welcomed. I'm really excited to talk to you guys. We're very excited to talk to you as well. We've been following year career and Brendan's career for quite a while. Now y'all have done some amazing things in the world of animation. So we always. I'd like to start briefly with where people are coming from before we talk about the main event so had an opportunity to watch ted talk and hear about your travels to the world of southern California animation you worked as a two D animator on Disney features. We love like Tarzan and Hercules and Atlantis. This your director for descendants wicked world which is amazing. So can you talk a little bit about your journey into the field of animation. Sure so I was just a super super animation fan. I grew up watching tons hunter cartoons. I was obsessed with cartoons. I loved all the classic cartoons that we know like bugs. Bunny and Tom and Jerry. The and just you know all those old shows but I also love the new ones too. I just love anything animated by I particularly love the humor and just kind kind of the wit behind the looney tunes cartoons on top of that I had such an appreciation for the Disney films. I was less about the humor for me with Disney films and more about the storytelling the heart. I really loved how I would watch something and it made me feel something that I could feel like. I was pulled into the world of Peter Pan and I wanted to imagine myself there when I was watching Dumbo and his mom. Is You know cradling him when when she she can't completely reach her son. She holds him in her trunk and they play a beautiful lullaby. It made me want to cry and I felt like you know I wanna I WANNA do Patrick people to I want to draw characters and create stories that make people feel something. I want to draw things that are so funny. It makes people laugh so I was just pulled into that world their early age so eventually I went to art school I went to USC. Once I graduated at the time when I went there was not an animation program. There was just an animation class so I found I needed some more training. I took a bunch of classes at the animation guild which had really great classes still does and about a year and a half after graduating. I ended up getting into a feature animation training program. It was a the three-month program that eventually led to being hired onto my first film which was Hercules. That's awesome and so once you're at Disney. Once you're working at feature films how did you then transition to becoming a story board artist for television and then director later on well. It's really interesting because you know working at Disney Disney and working at Disney features in particular was pretty much as far as my dream got to me. I just wanted to bring these characters interest to life. I wanted to be at Disney. I Love Disney and so I just saw myself climbing the ranks. Hopefully to eventually become a supervising supervising animator. Not really beyond that. So what happened for me is Disney made the announcement one day after Ice Age debuted and after they felt that their two D. Foams uh-huh hunt had success. They were looking for more than there is at the time it was it was. CG films that were point to be making more money. They decided to to basically get rid of the department so they made this announcement. It was devastating for many. I feel like you know while people were crying in the halls also. I ran to the phone and called a animation school and enrolled in classes right away. Because I knew I needed to kind of reinvent myself in order to stay in this industry I I did take the CG classes that they offered At the studio at the time and although I love animation what I found is it's not as much the animating part which cg you know you you don't draw any more from me. I wanted to still be able to draw so in taking taking classes what I discovered about myself that I loved storyboarding I loved the storytelling aspect of animation bass so it wasn't just performances it..

"dreamworks" Discussed on The Animated Journey: Interviews with Animation Professionals

"Always tell that story because I let people know all of us are good interviews in the sense that it's exposure even if you don't get the job you really thought was the perfect dog for you. if feud while them or if genuine they will keep you in mind and so. That's what happened to me. At least they basically recommended me for this job and I actually didn't have to interview. View is hard as other people have for the position. I came with a lot of recommendations but yeah talk got this current job. That's great something before to help. Oh Reo portfolios get night. I imagine that's what you're doing now as well like helping them look at portfolio. So was that something that right away you rebel triple can go. Oh yes this would totally fit for the show or is this something that's developed over time. I don't really feel like I still have an I. I'm still working on that. I definitely think I can tell at least a dreamworks all set because I never did anything fully for nuclear but I feel like I have a sense of what would make get like what type of portfolio dreamworks would want so. I can kind of give a little bit of advice but I honestly I'm going to be honest. I'm working on that myself sitting down with the art recruiters now and we're looking for flows and just trying to get the lingo that they're using Chinese. Learn more of the art lingo technique and all that stuff and so that is not my strong suit but recruiting for animation is not just the art. Luckily there's production assistance. We high at for an overhead overhead. And there's tech positions because dreamworks has the feature side that hire a Lotta computer science people so for me I. I'm just trying to learn at all but the art aspect. Yeah I can't draw stick figure so I'm just learning but I I love looking at the art. I think that's why I want to stay in animation on. That's why I knew I wanted to ask for inequality in or work at dreamworks or Disney or whatever but I just always wanted to be artists because you guys are amazing. I think what you do is magical uh and I love the finished product so being able to look at art all the time is it gives me so much joy so then people always always wanted to know what you're GONNA ask. How do you or something like that? Okay they're not there yet even before even pre job. What is a good way for someone someone to actually approach a recruiter or someone? WHO's in a hiring position as I feel like from going to a lot of mixers and just hearing stories and we know what not to do it? Hope people with the oldest go up to someone and say hi need a job. Yeah Hi Nice to meet you. Here's my card hard to resume. Here's my full. You don't lead where I think people might know not to do. Well what do I do. Avenue Avenue tips for people when they first meet you like you said I conversation I mean obviously there's no like magical answer I think two income to my head one is when you are mixing your medium recruiters. I go back to just being genuine. I feel like a good way to interact with them as religious share. Your story share your interest in ask a lot of questions about the business. I feel like recruiters when they when they meet someone and they just had a really good time talking with them and you know as long long portfolios released strong that someone they will always keep in mind but if you go up to them in this is I can do this and you know. Do you guys had this job and you know how you know if you ask too many pointed questions towards getting work. They're probably not going to be as eager but if they're like. Oh Yeah. I met this girl Angela. She was super sweet. We were talking about how much we love of Harry Potter like. That's the types of things that will keep you in a recruiters mind if you're able to get their contact info. It's never a bad thing to the shoot them an email once in a while and just like hey you know how things are going. Well I've updated my portfolio if you constantly email them nothing changed with your situation or you haven't given any type type of new update. It might get a little redundant but you know they definitely want to know that you're constantly working on your stuff and so when you make improvements is to your portfolio and things like that you definitely want to drop them in line not constantly you know maybe like once a month or even every other month but definitely I would say. That's a good way to keep keep in mind but when people ask me this question I really the only thing I like to do really some kind of give you a sense of the recruitment process. I feel like if you understand what's happening to your portfolio and your applications once you hit that send button and it goes on to that magical internet at least give you some type of sense that it really has been looked at but basically basically with recruiters it can go either way. A show will basically say. We're looking for color STYLUS. I'm we need your help. And so we have recruiters in sources who go up into the Internet either social media or on the position that we posted and we just look through these portfolios. And we really do try to go through a lot outta them and it's really about at least at dreamworks I'll say it's really about the style of the show what we're seeing in your portfolio. Does it geared towards the style. The show that we're hiring for which you're not always going to know what show you're applying to. But that is just an honest explanation of what we're looking for as we. We have a show about dragons. Are you drying creatures is kind of fanciful. Even if it's not creatures kind of fanciful. Look and that's what will gravitate detour when we send portfolios to the team to evaluate. I feel as though I was GONNA say a second time but on sometimes honestly a show will be looking for someone and they. You know the people you know because La even if it's live action innovations very relationship driven and so sometimes they'll have an opening and they already know oh who they at least want to interview and things like that so not just getting no recruiters getting to know just as many people in the animation industry is a good thing. You know when you meet an art director. They're the ones also telling us who they want on their shows so it is a lot of networking it is love who you know but it's also just like constantly working on your craft constantly updating us that you really are working in searching for that next job or even that first job and I don't know I'm just is one of those people that really believe if you're meant to do this it will happen and to speed genuine as possible into. Yeah just do this and you get a job. That's not how it works but I just try to be as truthful as possible and encouraging as possible. I mean it helps all of us because I know when I was applying you know Jack was applying. People have actually talked about this and made him laugh and he and I think this way too. I think sometimes when you're looking for a job especially when you're looking for your first job And you apply on the sites. Sometimes it feels like it's going into that that black now it's going to the abyss seat again and so it's wonderful to have people like you an Oriole on the show Joe People Though there's people on the other side and they are seeing what you're doing but there's more to it yes last. Oh they don't like me. My art stinks. That's not even necessarily what's going on. It's like you said does it fit with the style. Do they already have someone in mind or a million other reasons. Yeah yes so yeah like. You're saying yeah it's just know that you're still your portfolio will match a show one day a and also the relationships that you're making as you go to mixers and having coffees and stuff like that it will lead you to that. That right SH- job. I mean everyone saying it all the time. It's great time to animation. I mean so much contents me made specially with your streaming platforms so you just have to keep putting yourself out there. I I also tell especially with students when they're asking about you know working the performance of like that definitely within the social media follow people that are in the industry right now and not just like the creators of shows and even like your art directors and supervising producers but follow like the borders. That are on your favorite shows and your color styles and background Akron designers and look at the work that they're putting on their social media and try to make sure that your portfolio is is up to speed to what they're putting out there because they're the ones working right so if you look at your work and it's not as technical as what you're seeing that they're putting out there. That's when you know you need to work on it so I definitely want. I definitely tell people like really we look at. WHO's getting the work and that should help you? Also work on your portfolio and your technique and stuff like that. How important is social media and doing stuff stuff beyond just working on for fully putting something having a gallery show or putting out a graphic novel recruiters look at that stuff? Flack when we put our instagram laying. Yeah Oh yeah the or is it absolutely we actually dreamers. We have a dedicated person. She she is part of art sorcerer and her job literally sit at the computer all day looking at instagram art station. Lincoln as well. You know twitter wherever you guys are putting all the art. That's her job is to go out there and just look and look and look every other week we have this meeting with development exacts and then also with the LP's of shows and we present artists that we found online like this person has become available. This is what their strengths are. So yeah we do need to be out there for sure. It is getting tougher and tougher and the more content you can put out there and more followers. You have. That helps as well. I'm not saying you have to have a million followers as of something like that but having continent their online is going to be important. That is like pictures of me at the feet. Yeah Yeah Yeah exactly so a lot of people. At least that I know in the studios they had the two different accounts wants. You know if you have your personal one but have an art one. It's important to know what's going to be an x Ray..

Katzenberg, Jeffrey Free And Ten Minute discussed on The Frame

"You wanna watch a movie would you rather watch it at home or in a movie theater how about another option watching that film on your smartphone but not all that one's rather in one ten minutes snippet a day that's jeffrey free katzenberg thinking behind his short form mobile video platform currently in the works it's called quimby in the name of short quick bites there's still a lot of questions about how it all work before its launch next year but so far quimby has been able raised more than a billion dollars in drawing some top creative talent laying low way senior tv writer at variety has been looking into what ob excitement is about quitting doesn't launch for almost another year actually it'll come out in april twenty twenty twenty but i think the reason why everybody is so hyped up about it is because you've got to story leaders one from tech meg whitman former e b and hewlett packard ceo and this giant of industry jeffrey katzenberg who was at one time the head of dreamworks and walt disney studios and he's really the reason why people are so excited about it right people are excited about it because he's excited about it people believe in because he believed in it he's been selling the service as eight mobile platform that allows these quick bites which is what could be a short for short form content that'll have premium serialized scripted content unscripted content news news and sports and it'll be released in these five to ten minute chunks daily andy idea is that when you're waiting for coffee or you have a dull moment in your day those times when you're whipping out your phone and you're looking at twitter or facebook or something else and you're just putting around phone instead of doing that you'll go quickly and you'll watch five minutes of a sand rainy horror anthology or ten minutes of an anna kendrick buddy comedy instead so he has raised i think more then a billion dollars to fund this and right now it seems like he has attracted some really interesting talent to make content frequency i was in a van a couple of weeks ago where i ran into antwon fuqua who were a lot of people know from the training day movie he's also made the equalizer with denzel washington and he was producing a movie frequency and he was telling me that it was very attractive even though i think this movie was gonna be caught up into ten minute chunks what is jeffries pitch been to the creative community would be paid responding to well a big part of the appeal for creators is he intellectual property because the way it's format it would be will exclusively license their projects for seven years but after the first two years be rights revert back to beans creators and filmmaker so they'll be able to go and repackage this series they'll be able to hopefully seamlessly thread together all of these five to ten minute chunks of these stories and repackage package them as a feature film as a two and a half hour project but they could then go sell to another service so that's really attractive thing and also again there's just see appeal of katzenberg himself because he has been so successful in this industry i mean an wants so i told me that sitting down with jeffrey katzenberg is like sitting down with the godfather yeah although if you look at some of the movies he made at the walt disney company and some of his animated movies there are some questions about jeffrey storytelling taste will save that conversation for something what is the financial model because a lot of people right now are thinking about disconnecting subscriptions that they might have to their cable or satellite company or who were netflix so how are they trying to position it financially and what do they expect you people so they'll be selling two versions of quip me they'll be ad supported version for five dollars a month and any ad free version for seven dollars a month and it sounds like a small amounts but you also consider that people are i don't know if they're near saturation but there are certainly so many different streaming platforms out there you've got netflix and amazon and who and all of these different subscription services that people are already paying for so that even when you cut the cord you've got sometimes a hefty bill at the end of the month when you combine all these so that'll be a real test will be deceived they can break through that barrier and get people to fork over five to seven bucks a month for this of of course they're bringing some real alias talent and that's where their strength wli again you've got a project from kia motors del toro don cheadle liam hemsworth a you know tyra banks chrissy teagan and you know i think the other question here is also whether there will be on de creator side resale value for them after they were allowed to take their project off of quickly or after they're allowed to repackage their project from could be and sell it to a different platform so if there are detractors in town or at least doubters what would you say is a consistent question that they have about quickly what is gonna be the obstacles to its success there are a couple of different questions that came up in are reporting one of them is do people want this model people were still used to benching on tv these days when you're going to netflix their whole thing is the bench model and it's this also isn't appointment tv it's sort sort of a a daily thing that comes on five ten minutes a day but what if i want to watch the whole movie so in that case do i just wait for a month for all of these daily releases it come on the service and then say binge watch them all anyway on a saturday afternoon a so that's definitely a very unique model that hasn't really been done before another question that people have is people are so used to getting something for nothing specially from a mobile device store people going to be willing to fork over five and seven bucks a month for quickey a get another question is will the viewership justify the cost there are some really high numbers that were being thrown around a believe entrances what's project is gonna cost about fifteen million dollars which is certainly more than you could say for a lot of other short for mobile video out there andy clippings model is subscriptions an ad revenue and that's how they're planning on monetize ing they're stored as a but it'll be interesting to see whether these dubs an ad revenue justify be amount that they're investing

T-Mobile & Sprint Cleared For Launch

T-Mobile & Sprint Cleared For Launch

"It's Monday may twentieth. While in the market, foolery, I'm Chris L. Joining me in studio today back first time in a while. It's Dan client, thanks for being here. Hey, there, Chris, thanks for having me. Thanks to everyone who hung in over the weekend for our apropos of nothing episode. I told you we'd be back Monday with the actual business news of the day, and we're here, we've got some media and entertainment news. We're going to dip into the full mailbag. Let's start with, I think that's technically counts as breaking news, the chairman of the FCC saying that he is going to recommend to the agency, the approval of the merger between T mobile and sprint. This is a twenty six and a half billion dollar merger. And I know the FCC still needs to formally approve this. And so does the Justice department but stocks are acting Wall Street is acting like both those approvals have gone through because when you looked at this a few weeks ago, and I think we covered this on an industry focus not that long ago. They were putting it at fifty fifty and it wasn't. They weren't looking at this sort of economics of it. They were basically, very focused on, but there's four and it's going to go to three and that's bad. And then sprint came out and said, hey, look, we've been saying our numbers are pretty good. They came as close to saying, they that they fudged the numbers, as you can legally come, and what they were basically saying is, hey, we, we've added a million subscribers, but we added is free lines. So they would say, hey your sprint customer. You think your dog wants a line could you could your ipad use a second line like it was that level of like if you went into a sprint store, they were handed them out like gum. So this was not a Wells Fargo situation. They weren't they were telling you, and in general, it was a line, you might want, like, maybe for a kid or for a secondary device, but it wasn't a line, you were going to purchase. So when T mobile says they've added a million postpaid customers. They're defining that as someone who. Signs up and joins and pays the money sprint was doing it in a sort of more nefarious way. And they came out and said, hey, look, we're spending a lot of money even their regular customer acquisition was heavily discounted. So there was no real path to success for sprint on its own. They probably could not afford the investment. I mean obviously there are owned by SoftBank. So technically the parent company could put in all the money they wanted to. But there was every chance that if this deal wasn't allowed that sprint was going to be sold at a fire sale and either team of who's going to buy a lot of the assets anyway. Or somebody like Comcast charter who had already passed on operating sprint as sprint would end up with just the customer base and the assets. So all sprint and T mobile really did. And this kind of shows that that object pie. The FCC chairman was probably leaning towards this merger anyway is all they did was committed to hitting ninety percent of the country. With five G within three years, which is something that they've talked about do. Doing anyway. That's kind of the logic of the merger is to be the first to have a real five G network all over the country and T mobile is banking on that because they have a television product, they want you to buy. So when you see shares of T mobile up around six seven percent today and shares of sprint up north of twenty five percent that doesn't strike you as unreasonable because you, you think yes, the approvals have to happen. But. It's all over. But, you know, the I mean obviously pay attention to make sure straight sprint shares. Don't go over the price that the deal is at which which does happen, sometimes, but I am very in favor of T mobile. I'm bullish on T mobile. Even if the deal get shot down, but what this does, and there is a bad history of mergers, in this space sprint Nextel is why sprint in this trial. God I forgot about boop. But I'm referencing for people who don't know, us to be able to on a Nextel phone have, like a walkie talkie feature. And it made like a ridiculously annoying noise. It worked very well in a factory, but others say, very, very popular in factories and construction sites. Yes, which is where I use them. So it was a good product for me. But in this case, you have a dynamic CEO and John Legere, and they have a plan. So whether the sprint brand goes away, they haven't told you that. But eventually, this is a company that has tremendous customer loyalty because they're straight with you. If you walk. Into a T mobile and layout, your problem. I had an issue, I wanted to upgrade my iphone and they no longer I was part of their old upgrade program, and they explained it to me, clearly, why had to pay more money than I thought I did. And they were very nice about it and I didn't leave angry. And that's very hard. There is no possibility. AT and. T. O Verizon can do that. Let's move onto the entertainment industry, and I suppose this ties in CBS has made an offer to buy stars from Lionsgate entertainment. I was saying, right. Before we started taping I had to take a moment. And think about what does stars bring to the table as a network other than movies that other people have made in the only thing I could come up with was American God's power the original series, so. What do you think of this deal because when I first saw this what went through my head was, oh, the landgrab continues, the we're all moving to streaming? And by we I'm referring to the broadcast networks. We're all moving to streaming. We're all looking to get as much content original content, as we can get our hands on. And if we have to pay maybe a little bit more for not as well known content we're going to do that. This is kind of like asking someone to the prom, and our before the prom. All the good dates are gone. This almost goes back to Disney buys Pixar, then Disney by Star Wars. Then Disney bars marvel then Comcast goes. Uh-huh. And buys DreamWorks, we, we were comparing this talking to saying that stars is sort of the Royal crown cola, the RC cola. And then we downgraded it to it's the polar soda of, of premium content channels. But this really is in my opinion. Desperation move 'cause so you're gonna pair this if you're CBS with it's very weak to show or maybe three show now that they've launched a twilight zone, CBS streaming service. Maybe they're going to pair that with some of the Viacom properties if they ever properly merged, which they're sort of controlled by the same people, and they talk about merging, but it hasn't quite happened. So like you're streaming package is going to be a couple of old people shows on CBS interactive stars, which has young streaming shows, but I don't know anybody who's intentionally buying stars to watch American gods. And then, like, what like reruns of the real world and, and maybe comedy central as an asset that will drive some subscriptions, but it feels like if I'm gonna pay for sort of a package. Disney is clearly building towards a Hulu Disney plus ESPN plus package. That's going to be more attractive. And then Comcast is going to be more attractive, and then probably Sony now that they're working with Microsoft is going to be able to put something together. And then maybe Happel, and then this CB it, it really seems to me like, buying a very low level asset for a lot of money. So I'm going to put in your rank ordering I'm gonna put this above apple just because we don't know what's coming with apple yet. They had the event earlier this year with Oprah Winfrey. Steven Spielberg, and they and I get all that at least with CBS you have some known quantities. I think the, the best version of this scenario for CBS is, if this goes through then three years from now they have enough data. I would argue actually even sooner maybe a year and a half, two years from now they have enough data from their streaming app to know what to invest in because the one thing you can say about the stars original content at least in terms of the dramas is, you're not seeing those types of dramas on TV. It really is a different category of trauma. It's, it's, it's edgier. I would argue in some ways, it's more create. Give it's the nineteen eighty-five HBO model where there's going to be gratuitous nudity for absolutely no reason in every episode. I mean it's possible, but just, just from a creative stamp, boy, it's, it's less predictable show like American gods. As far less predictable than a formulaic. I know they don't own law and order. But that's the one that pops D'amoto like a procedural where I know it's going to play out or NCIS I guess that's a CVS property. I feel like this only makes sense if they're going to continue acquiring but there's not much left out there. You start to get into buying one offs and buying shows rather them if this is part of a roll up strategy, and they need the subscriber base, and they come to you, and they say, hey, do you have stars? We're giving you CBS we're giving you because the Disney pricing looks pretty attractive. I may who live subscriber if they throw me Disney, plus, which I'm going to get any way it's going to have Star Wars shows and ESPN plus and it's only. An extra seven ninety nine or ninety nine I'm probably going to do that. CBS is streaming service is very inexpensive. It's four ninety nine a month. If all of a sudden, for nine ninety nine a month. I can get stars to maybe I mean, I, I had stars when I used to

Emma Thompson leaves Skydance Animation project following Lasseter hire

"I'm Kim masters, and this is the Hollywood breakdown joining me as Belony of the Hollywood reporter. And Matt is you know, because we reported it John Lasseter who was the head of Disney and Pixar animation left that company some months ago amid reports our ports largely of misconduct of being touching inappropriately making people uncomfortable. I mean, I, you know, even the young women who worked at those companies were told they couldn't be in a room with him because he had difficulty controlling his behavior around them, which just shows you that this kind of thing has a very insidious affect beyond the people who are immediate victims. He was out in the woods for a little while we heard he was being shopped around we didn't think a public company would take him but sky dance, which is David Ellison's company. He's the son of billionaire multi-billionaire Larry Ellison they hired him. And now there's been some there was media. Blowback with women protesting time's up protesting feeling that he hadn't. Really explained that. He understood the misconduct and headed tone for it or had had some healthier that how to behave more appropriately. But now, there's a kind of blowback that might affect the bottom line, right? We saw this past week where Emma Thompson who had signed on to be a voice in an upcoming movie called luck abruptly pulled out of that movie when John Lasseter was hired. And it's an interesting dynamic now because this puts pressure on other talents that are involved in sky dance projects are they gonna start losing people, right and left or is this going to be a one time thing, I'm at Thompson has been very closely associated with the time's up movement has been vocal on these issues make sense for her to drop out. But how far is this gonna go? Yeah. I mean to be clear she hasn't commented. We just were told by our sources that and felt confident reporting that she left for this reason and skied ounce certainly didn't didn't deny that. So yes and guidance has promoted a veteran of DreamWorks animation. Holly Edwards now to be president of sky, Danna Mason. But you know, there's a feeling now. I think it's it's rough for her. I mean, she is among some women who will be given major opportunities to do big jobs, and it comes with this cloud over it. Because you know, it looks as though the optics are whether it's true or not that you're helping sky dance to justify this higher. The end of there's another movie in the works, which has a female director, you know, which is not that common in the you know, at this point. We're still seeing in live action and animation. That women directors have a ways to go. Do you take that gig? And I'll say just, you know, it's not even clear right now because John Lasseter is newly arrived. Whether these projects, you know, some of them in the works. I think luck was too far along in his is definite go. But some of these other ones, you know, he may transform the more decide that they'd sky dance shouldn't make them. I mean, this is an interesting dynamic that they have their now because as a woman in these departments, do you? You bail and potentially go elsewhere, or, you know, not advanced the cause of advancing women in the workplace in Hollywood. Or do you stay and try to reform things from within good question? It reminds me of the Woody Allen situation in a way where they're sort of allegations. And little by little talent said we're not going to work with this guy. And that we don't know if you'll see this snowball effect. Thank you, Matt. Thank you. That's Matt Bellamy editorial director of the Hollywood reporter. He joins me this Monday at two o'clock on the business. I'm Kim masters, and this is the Hollywood breakdown.

John Lasseter returns from exile

"KCRW sponsors include Amazon studios, presenting Cold War, named best foreign language film by the national board of review and the New York Film. Critics Circle directed by Oscar winning Pablo Pavlovsky a words eligible in all categories. I'm Kim masters, and this is the Hollywood breakdown joining me as Matt Bellamy of the Hollywood reporter, and Matt I guess yesterday was a good day for accused sexual harassers who were hoping to make a comeback. John Lasseter who left Disney and Pixar onto the cloud of multiple allegations of inappropriate behavior got a job at sky dance animation the company that is belongs to David Ellison. The son of very very wealthy multi-billionaire. Larry Ellison who gifted his son with a few billion dollars to make movies in Hollywood. Yeah. This is caused a lot of backlash within the animation community and the Hollywood community at large because it is probably the most high profile person to have been. In quote, unquote, metoo out of the business, and now to be back in, and we know that John Lasseter had been shopping himself around for months trying to get meetings with different people. Most of these companies are studios that are owned by publicly traded companies took a pass on him. This seems to be the one place that was open to it. And like you said it is not a public company. It is a private company owned by a billionaire. So the reaction within the community not good. Let me be clear. This was my story. I broke that story. And that is what caused his departure does the immediate cause of the departure from Disney and Pixar John Lasseter is brilliant animator with many storied films. I mean, Toy Story two frozen. Everybody knows this who knows anything about animation. However, this was a bad situation that had been allowed to fester. And while sky dance is a private company funded by private billions, it has a deal with paramount. The amount is not only a public company, but paramount is part of Viacom, which is also the parent of CBS, which has had horrible public problems with horrible sexual worst than sexual harassment allegations. And this is an embarrassment to paramount and a problem and a lot of people paramount is supposed to distribute sky dance animated films. This is a huge problem. Also for paramount. Yeah, we're hearing that people on the paramount lot or really upset about this and word saying, a why don't we just not release them? I don't think that's legally possible. But you know, we had a story in hide reporter today about talking to some female animators, and they are going on the record saying, I will not work at sky dance. If John Lasseter is there. That's a big problem because you know, yes, he's a genius. But what you just not gonna hire women. Are you gonna have all male all-male, animation company forgetting men and women? Like, there's a lot of men who are upset by this. Absolutely. I just don't I don't know when you're in a talent oriented business and talent has strong opinions about the kind of people they work with how do you operate a business? Like this win that's led by such a toxic person. And I will say that, you know. Yes, there has to be a road back. But what John Lasseter did was to issue basically an apology by press. Release a brief statement saying Oops, I really thought this all over and I'm really sorry. If I made people uncomfortable, and that is not the road back. I think we can agree. So we'll see I if sky dance wants to stay the course. But there are women running animation companies. There's a woman running Disney animation. Now co running a woman running paramount animation woman just aimed to run DreamWorks animation. So there is that. Thank you, Matt. That's Matt Bellamy editorial director of the Hollywood reporter.

"dreamworks" Discussed on The Read

"Ration-? Also read on because of them we can onto my favorite websites ever that. He was also the first black director of an a major animated film ever when he directed rise of the guardians by DreamWorks. And I don't know if you've ever seen that movie people did. But it was this movie that DreamWorks that was about like Jack frost and a whole bunch of other mythical kids like it was him and Easter bunny and to fairy and the Sandman some of the negative like that and they were like superheroes. And they fought like. Fell asleep. But it was like cute. That's nice. What else did I want to mention sin? Toya Brown is being men. I mean why? Grabber? Yes, she has to wait. I think till August till she actually gets out. And I don't know why that is spent fifteen years of her being locked up for no good reason. But I am so glad to hear that the smallest sliver of not even Justice. But just what this woman, what should have always been available to her is finally coming her way. I'm just so glad to hear. And it's a damn shame that we have to celebrate like this. But it's a big deal for her to be out of prison is a big deal for her to be getting out of jail. And I'm so happy for her and her family, and I just wanna thank everybody who did the organizing like all the news stories have read about it are like, yeah. You know, the big push online. Everybody talking about this on the internet for the past couple years has definitely helped. But you know, there have been people trying to advocate for Santo for years and years and years and years like, that's what has to be done like the whole system needs an overhaul. But I am so happy to hear this guy. Is getting out more art Kelly's getting in the how it should be going. We got it wrong here, but we'd be start reversing shit. And also, I just want to give a quick mention to that new little trailer that just came out today. So I watch Marseille Martin. And he's right. Dean hall, all in the same movie together. Almost feel like they dropped that trailer. Just for me. How did this? They dropped the short went on Instagram.

She is just so talented like Marseille Martin. I've been telling y'all for years, but keep your eye on that little girl because she has got a moment that I saw very young. When I don't even remember what part of season one it was. But she hit a look it wasn't the. It wasn't that moment. I was already blessed by then. She just kind of really great comedic timing her miles like they're just funny. I can't wait to see this. Congratulations Marseille ISA everybody over there on this film.

"Of course, he wouldn't get involved in something where you're going to get screwed. It looked at it as he has a really strong drive, and he's accomplished a lot of projects on himself. And he just kinda has fearless attitude about let's go do this. And that was something at the time. I didn't really have. So even though now it's become so much more than that. We work really well too. He totally gets animated quirky stuff. I totally can do the scifi all that stuff that I was worried about is like not even there. But it started really as me being like, I need someone just with that drive that I don't have right now. Looking back really what it was. It was me being afraid to open up the doors and share with somebody else and really. Move forward as a team. And once you start pitching because I know that we have a lot of people on the show movement pitched some of them have we've met a lot of people that want to pitch. How do you persevere in this because I think the misconception is they go to dinner once with an executive they buy their idea. That's it. That's not how it goes so gone happens. But it's certainly not common. How do you guys keep it? So the paying pitch this five times. But you know, it's a good idea. We're gonna keep going at it. Well, right now because I'm DreamWorks, and there's all these conflicting legal things were sort of on stall with pitching things until we can make sure that everything's legally worked up, but when we were pitching, and when we will be pitching again. Well, we are pitching the pirate app because that's non television. It's not a conflict. So yeah, how you manage? It is shots in the dark. There is no instruction manual to this. It doesn't matter. What anyone tells you? It's not a science. It's not even well documented it's sort of like this weird hush hush thing. I hate to say it. But a lot of it is good old fashioned him. I mean, that's a lot of the. Way that section of the industry works. Why is that I think it's purely because companies are afraid to take risks. That's the other thing. And I can talk about that at length is making that shift from artist into businessman or woman, a lot of this is you make this mental shift in realizing that at the end of the day, it's about money. We're commercial artists were not fine, honest that are just doing this for the sake of it or have it on a wall and say you like it or you don't we're making a product and in order for that to sell you have to sell yourself to some degree. And it's a lot of that comes back into play with whoever you're pitching too. It's like they have a company and they have interests that they're protecting. And especially now with the flood of content the very hesitant about taking risks on terrible products. I look back now. And I look at all the projects I've worked on the amount of people that are involved the amount of moving pieces the amount of things that do go wrong. Sometimes I just like man, it's amazing that anything ever gets done. Because some of these productions are so poorly run and just chaotic and crazy and people stressing out and get divorced and getting laid off. And like you name it. It's nutty. It's tough to get these things done..

The other hand, of course has his icon of chain in hook. This statue also has dog between his legs down here at the bottom. And if you know logo, you know he loves his space dolphins and those are on the side there. Movable it is a huge statute limit. Seven hundred fifty pieces made the price is going to be up there. It's a one thousand eight hundred ninety nine. You can pre-order it right now is coming out the end of twenty nineteen beginning of twenty twenty and. They have a payment plan so you don't have to pay it all at once. You can make payments. Okay. If you're near a local comic shop that has is going to be participating local comic shop day, which is going to be November seventeenth. They have released to the special comics are coming out. Local comic shop day usually has exclusive comics for those participating stores. One of those is alien cz three, William Gibson's alien, three, unproductive screenplay. That in the I'm looking at it, the cover looks pretty good. It is going to be a part of one of the alien things that were not produced good story. The another book that was leased was image. Comics is going to be putting out a hardcover collection of the first six issues of Gideon falls by Jeff Lemaire. Getting falls pretty popular comic special. You can pick it up exclusive collection in hardcover. That's hard to pass up. So comic shop day go to your local comic store in CBO picking up November seventeenth, which is a Saturday, no skew should work. Video game players the WWE to k nineteen. His revealed some of their roster if you like the old eighties, nineties throwback, wrestlers you're going to be very happy, the WWF WCW era. They're bringing in. Tons of the old care designing rowdy. Roddy piper. Jake, the snake Roberts Ted DB Ozzy the million dollar man ultimate warrior ravishing Rick rude, Mr.. Perfect. DP Bret Hart leader and Ricky steamboat dragon, just the name of few. They are saying they still have a few more to announce for this than game will become an out Tober fifth. So if you're a wrestling video game fan, you don't wanna pick up w w e two k nineteen on October. Fifth. Stephen King fans, you're good. You're getting a lot of Stephen King lately. Well, they're doing some more. They're going to remake pet cemetery. If you're familiar repet- cemetery, that's the the show where the guys kid this year be spoilers books out forever and so's the first movie guys kid is he buries him in the. Indian burial ground which is supposed to bring them back to life and it does, but it brings them back different something wrong with them. So just looking at how they upgraded it from the first interruption of the movie that came out to the one just killed it. The box office is past year. I'm thinking pet cemetery will be the same thing. It's they're saying if he loved the book ago, the movie. So I'm thinking it's going to stay pretty true to the story. It was a very, very freaky. Scary book. I can't wait to see how they're going to make this modernize pet cemetery, but we'll have to wait till April fifth of twenty nineteen to see this movie. Okay. Gnocchi been reading affinity wars. You've seen that they have a kind of. A weird offshoot from that cone, Infinity warps were Gamarra's. She's gotten them vanity stones, and she's kind of folded the universe in on itself. And a lot of the characters have been combined merged as you had cabinet. American doctor strange were merged form soldier supreme thorn. Ironman merged, have iron hammer, and they revealed a new one. Just the other day wolverine was merged with Emma frost. His appearance didn't really change much still has the wolverine look except the. He's got the blonde hair a got the Pat. He's wearing a passionate like he did when he was when he was patched. I patch. The big differences you tell him his speech patterns is much got much more manners speaks more eloquently, but those still moving in, he gets his rage every once in a while. So if you like the idea of them merging two characters for a new one. There. He go Infinity warps with a p. they're doing and they've got other ones too, like they have ghost panther weapon Hex. Wolverine is not the only one to get merged bunch of our if that's your thing than you want to pick up infinitive warps. Okay, Batman. If you've been reading Justice league, you saw Batman is just been decimated. I mean, lex Luther. When he had the totality doorknob, he crushed Batman, broke all his arms legs. This left him in a bad way. And you saw the last Justice league issue. He had a a full body, armor suit that allowed him to keep moving around even though pretty much most the bones as body were were broken. He's gone one step further. Now he has his own little hover wheelchair. So he looks a lot like professor x with a big bat symbol on his chest. Sure. He's still pretty deadly. Even with that full body armor, he wolf to bunch of of legion of doom. He was pretty instrumental and then justly getting the totality away from lex Luther on. Now, he's taking easy. He's he's sitting instead of standing. But this, this hover chairs pretty armored up. I'm sure he's got it full of all kinds of weapons. So certainly Justice league. You're gonna see a bad just won't stop fighting and they're getting the totality transfer out how to get it to fix the source law. 'cause it's supposedly a battery used for creating universes. So they to figure out how to use it to fix our multi-diverse. Justice league Scott Snyder for you going with this. Don't worry that one to you. Okay. Harvey awards, their New York Comecon.

I just read tweet people in all tweet random, far thoughts, but because I'm on a kid show, I've kind of held back a little bit, but we've got Rachel era who's on the show and she's a dirty dirty woman. Tell people where they can find by the way rocky and bull winkle you can watch rocky and booming coal on Amazon prime. You're so good by thank you. I'm the voice of fearless leader who is the screaming? Chatman sounding four horsemen around. I have to get that most sense grow. Try them Sunday that can take this fucking crazy that you make your voice sound like him. What happened talking like that seller long. My voice kind of dropped because my voice dropped get deeper because I'm just screaming at the top of my lungs. Okay, I got the Email I have. I'm sending you a new way. What I want to hear more about the the rocky bull WinCo experience before Al, and it was incredible it. I got it right when we started conic cartoon by the like one of the most just shows ever in this in the sixties and they had fucking restaurants, they they had their own like Dave and Buster's, whereas like Rockies and I think it was just called bull winkles and you would go and you can play arcade games and they had parades they were in every the thing was Jay ward was a marketing genius. He would go, and he would just set up a like lie hundred foot tall, bullying cool in the middle of a park and people would start taking pictures and freaking out. And he went viral before the internet. And he created this massive following because he would merchandise and do things, and he had a good show to back it up. It wasn't just like this false, you know, praise for show that just didn't go anywhere. It was actually legit. Great show. Right. And then so finally. They tried for years to re boot. The show they made a movie with Robert Downey, JR. Junior's fareless leader till he's talking to me. I have defeated asleep as hundred to try a German accent doesn't work so good, but maybe Jason Alexander will save it. Nope. So they tried that that I think they did a short on. One of the, I think the Peabody and Sherman DreamWorks made the movie, and then they did a rocket bull ankle short and there's, you know, people still excited about. And so they finally found a story structure that pleased. Everybody like DreamWorks the producers, Amazon and the ward family, and they said, okay, let's go with it and so is basically kind of like Indiana Jones meets 007 and. Wacky races where it's just like crazy shit happening all the time with rock and bull. Winkle high-octane SpongeBob squarepants humor. So it's geared for six to eleven year olds. But there's a lot of like funny, you know, PG adult. He s which is I think a lot of cartoons are having to focus in on is we have to make these things not just kid Centric like there's got, they're going to watch them with the kids. So you gotta make you feel. Don't be able to be a part, but it's it's definitely fast paced high energy. If you need this low down, man, just, you know, enjoy. CBD have you gotten hit up by anybody who's watched the show like, oh, yeah, of course. I've, I've already gotten fan art and people sensitive through my agents to sign and things like that, which is great. Weird feeling, you know, and it's odd because you know it's a reboot, but you you, you, you look back in the characters are still there. So there's toys and stuff. And I don't know if they're they're working on any marketing as far as that goes. But we have thirteen episodes on Amazon right now, and then thirteen more will becoming think. We just. Just finished. You know, we just finished eighty are and I think the twenty fifth episode. So we'll be, I don't know when those are coming out, but though the the thirteen hour up online and they're each half hours, they're not like five or eleven minute episodes..
