World Beneath Podcast, Episode 3

It's Tuesday, time for the newest episode of the serialized audio dramatization of Dinotopia: The World Beneath. 

Sorry, the the episode is only up for a week, so it's no longer available on Soundcloud.

Arthur, Will, and Bix weigh the dangers of inviting Oriana on the expedition to explore the World Beneath.

Once the expedition team is assembled, they head down the Cargo Chute on a raft.

The route takes them through the bowels of Waterfall City and they emerge below the cascade.

They arrive at Black Fish Tavern, hangout of the shipwreck scavengers.

The Podcast Series
This acoustic adventure was produced by Tom Lopez, mastermind of the ZBS Foundation, with an original music track by composer Tim Clark.

The Christian Science Monitor called this production "A dazzling soundscape that does full justice to Gurney’s wondrous lost world… perfect family listening.”

Episode 4 arrives in a week. Each short episode will only be live online for one week, and then it will disappear.

If you'd like to purchase the full two-hour World Beneath podcast right now and hear all fifteen episodes back to back in a feature-length production, check out The World Beneath at ZBS Foundation website for the MP3 download. It's also available as a CD.

The Book
You can also order the original printed book from my web store and I'll sign it for you. (It ships via Media Mail within 24 hours of your order. US orders only for the book, please). The book is also available from Amazon in a 20th Anniversary Edition with lots of extras.

The Museum Exhibition is now on view
Many of these paintings are now on view at the Dinotopia exhibition at the Stamford Art Museum and Nature Center through May 25. I'll be in attendance at events on Feb. 28 and March 1. Read more about the events here on this blog.

Hey everybody! If you're going to the exhibition the weekend of the 28th and 1st...
A couple of us who are doing the workshop are going to catch up for coffee and sketch either the morning before the workshop or the early afternoon on the 28th.
If you're interested shoot me an email and I'll keep people posted with the specifics.
Whenever we meet, it will not conflict with either events on the 28th or 1st for those going.

Hi, Jared,
Thanks for making the trip to the show, and thanks for organizing a get-together. I'll look forward to seeing you all on the Feb 28/March 1 weekend events. If you're not coming to one of the ticketed events, come on by anyway for the book signing on Sunday afternoon. --James Gurney

Hi I would love to know what is fair use for something to be published in a book or used in a video. Say you referenced one of Josef Albers experiments in a book about color, can you show one of them and just cite it? Or on a separate topic, did you have to license images for use in your color and light book, when say showing an Arthur Streeton painting?

Thanks for any help.

James Gurney said...

Steve, the old master images in Color and Light and Imaginative Realism had to be licensed and paid for because many of them were owned by museums, most of whom charge for use. They shouldn't charge, however, for 19th century works, though, because those are in the public domain. If you're working on a book, you generally have to get permission for images that you use, but I can't give a blanket judgment and you should probably check with a legal adviser on that.

Thanks so much James! I talked to a lawyer, but it seemed like murky ground especially if you took your own photo at the Met for example. But thanks for your thoughts.
