Audio Producer Tom Lopez

Tom Lopez produced the Dinotopia Audio Adventures. They are very faithful adaptations, which translate the visual story into an acoustic one that plays out like a movie in your imagination.

His production company called ZBS Productions has made a variety of acoustically rich and thematically mind-expanding radio stories about characters like Jack Flanders and Ruby the Galactic Gumshoe.

Yesterday, he was profiled on National Public Radio (This link takes you to the NPR story—it's a great listen).

According to the translator's annotate of Color and Light, Mandarin version, we don't have Dinotopia series in Taiwan. However, it's very fun to listen to this and let eyes take a break from studying color and light.

I have a huge collection of ZBS recordings. All those great stories have been my studio companions while I've painted, drew, or constructed art. Love Tom Lopez.
