There are some early stocks for The Art of The Rise of the Guardians at Basheer Graphic bookstore and I borrowed one for this review. Publication Date, March 19, (PDF). No. of Pages, ISBN a print submitted by William Joyce. Take a look and enjoy the art work plus heart felt letters!. This book explores the beautiful art behind the new DreamWorks film Rise of the Guardians.
Atraumatic restorative treatment ART using high-viscosity glass ionomer cement has gradually become more popular because it performs well in clinical studies, is easy to handle and is patient friendly.
The Internet Movie Script Database (IMSDb)
Therefore, the aim of this randomised clinical trial study is to compare the restoration longevity of conventional treatment using composite resin with that of ART in posterior primary teeth. As secondary outcomes, cost-efficacy and patient self-reported discomfort will also be tested. The unit of randomisation will be the child. A sample size of teeth with occlusal cavities and teeth with occlusal-proximal cavities has been calculated.
The primary outcome will be restoration longevity, which will be clinically assessed after 6, 12, 18 and 24 months by two examiners. The duration of the dental treatment and the cost of all materials used will be considered when estimating the cost-efficacy of each treatment. David explained, "Earlier, Zac had suggested shooting these sequences like regular drama, that is, with a 35mm wide lens, so at first we tried using the same lenses in the air as we used for drama.
This was similar to the way owls flew into close-ups, maybe moving back as another bird entered, keeping the shot running. It had the effect of a camera sitting on a bird who flew with the group. Zac let the team know fairly precisely what he wanted. Instead of working shot to shot and then telling the story in the editorial suite later, he spent whole afternoons with the previs and layout crew explaining why he likes to block scenes in a certain way, his camera style and philosophy about slow-motion.
These sessions established work principles for the whole show and ultimately saved time. To encourage natural shot development, Autodesk helped them install a real-time depth of field component into Maya, early in the process. David reckons they may simply have borrowed the Mudbox component but, in effect, it allowed them to monitor how the depth of field would look as they went.
Instead of just setting up planes for far and near distances, they could dial in a dof setting and quickly get a reasonably accurate look and make pull-focus decisions even in previs, which in turn influenced the whole shooting process.
This was the only major departure from the regular Maya camera. Throughout previs and layout for animation, they used simple 4K parent constrained rigs. David feels this prevents over-animating and keeps the focus on the basic choreography. We also had crane rigs, equivalents to most live action rigs, which helped the artists to think and work in a live action style.
In Maya. The rotation orders are quite different, but we deliberately set our rotation orders like real cameras. As well, building a crane rig in Maya will give a very different look to the shot. Without it, the free camera can just be translated across your scene in a straight line but if you parent it to a crane rig and off-set your pivot point, you can animate the rig to give a beautiful curve to the move, part of the cinematic language.
Also, the pivot point in Maya, by default, is exactly around the nodal point of the film plane location. So we offset that to make it pivot more realistically. To help shoot the final stages of animation, camera operator Calum McFarlane at AFTRS taught the team about using 35mm film equipment, the weight of the cameras and the feel of real crane rigs.
It was useful to understand just how much work a camera man has to do to control his cameras.
That changed several shooting decisions, regarding off-sets and other moves. Because the pipeline at Animal Logic is built to run processes in parallel, set design continued to develop as the shots were designed.
We put rough cameras through the model, which went to editorial, and then Simon would make a few adjustments to the set, with the cameras in mind. As shots were refined and entered production, set design and art direction would continue during final layout, cameras and character choreography.
Once animation started, there would be further iterated versions of the set.

Having the dof so early also contributed to the process. If they knew that certain shots would put the background out of focus, the artists could save time on detail.
Performance Motivated Animation was another major lensing component for David. Animation Director Eric Leighton would explain his intended moves and actions, which David would plan for in the layout. The cameras were intended to be largely performance motivated. When the animation crew were ready to start a scene, David would be ready to assign cameras, exported from Maya to XSI, so that animation and camera work could develop together, similar to the set design process.
The animation blocking stage would get one camera pass, with further passes to follow as the scene built up, feeding off the performance. After production got underway at the end of , the bulk of the animation was completed within six to seven months.
David attributes some of this efficiency to the parallel pipeline. Lighting could start as soon as animation was underway, without waiting for the final assets, and by the time animation finished they would only have to update the final performances.
So, only a couple of days might pass between completion of animation and the final render. When exporting a camera from Maya to Nuke, the compositors could pick up the camera with all keyframe information for the dof ready to go.
There, further small adjustments could be made, but the point is that the design came from the camera operators. David feels this is unusual to find in an animated film.
If background characters were needed to fill in, the crowd artists would add a pass. But for the initial previs and choreography only the essential characters were involved.
In battle sequences, for example, gratuitous action for the sake of excitement was avoided but when it was called for, Zac often chose to use slow-motion at the most intense moment, slowing right down to let the audience clearly see the emotion for each character and their relative positions. An alternative to editing action sequences into a series of quick cuts culminating in a close up or single, dramatic moment, he preferred the slow-motion technique perhaps because it prevents a break in shooting style.
In 2D you might render out some extra frames and do a time warp in the composite but the stereo element required also making sure all details still matched, eye to eye. So we developed a re-time curve, established in layout, that could be shared among the departments to align effects, animation and so on. When layout began, for example, an initial pass would be made to establish correct spatial relationships, and in animation, a corresponding 3D pass would be made.
Letting objects move out into the cinema was an additional consideration.
In an over-shoulder shot, when the character being looked at is out of focus, the audience may be more inclined to look at the shoulder, the object nearest to them, which may appear to be out with them in front of the screen. At first, they tried to avoid out-of-focus objects altogether but this would have interfered with their filmmaking style and shallow depth of field. Nevertheless, we still wanted to take advantage of the 3D to create an immersive as well as cinematic experience. Rainstorms, flying through fire were such moments when we actually let certain FX elements out into the cinema space.
In flight sequences also, to enhance the feeling of the camera flying among the birds, characters might fly from the theatre over into the shot. Plato urges the guardians to imitate a good character because they are the leaders of tomorrow and take the responsibility of the management of society itself.
In this case, the guardians depend on the poet for their knowledge. However, Plato also cautions that there is a potential danger in such acquisition of knowledge, especially when the guardians are imitating the deceptive poet.
First Objection: The Deception Concerning the Identity of the Speaker The first objection against imitation is that it aims at deception concerning the identity of the speaker, and it entices us to emulate the poet. This kind of the narrative proceeds within imitation Jowett, p. It is not that we are really likely to be taken in by a deception, but that we may be mesmerized into becoming performers, and therefore into taking deception as our aspiration; and morally speaking, this is an undesirable aim to take Woodruff, Plato believes it is good when a poet imitates the gods and the heroes without deception.
It is morally wrong when a poet engages in acts of deception by attributing bad ideas to the gods because it is likely that the audience will emulate the behaviors of such gods. Plato rejects this kind of impersonation because it brings ruins to the state.
Gebaur and Wulf also shed light on our understanding of imitation in actual conduct. They state therefore that the role model should be a man of a good character who is worthy of emulation. For poetry to make its productive contribution to the education of youth, it must be subjected to an ethical process.
A luminous series for children of all ages
Ancient Greek education depended on the recitation i. This assessment involves an ethical analysis. If the poet fails in his ethical code, an emulation of him would lead to moral deprivation. Therefore, Plato says that the guardians should not emulate a deceptive poet because they are to be the best of citizens and their duty is to manage the well-being and interests of the State Jowett, p.
Nevertheless, Plato says: If the poet everywhere appears and never conceals himself, then again the imitation is dropped, and his poetry becomes simple narration. Jowett, pp. Plato says that whatever is depicted by the poet would be transferred to the students by emulation. Only the well-known hymns should be emulated by the poet, just as Plato states: Homer is the greatest of poets and first of tragedy writers; but we must remain firm in our conviction that hymns to the gods and praises of famous men are the only poetry which ought to be admitted into our State.
For if you go beyond this and allow the honeyed muse to enter, either in epic or lyric verse, not law and the reason of mankind, which by common consent have ever been deemed best, but pleasure and pain will be the rulers in our State. Jowett, p.
Plato argues that in order for justice to prevail in the state, the student must participate in what is unique to the student. Plato acknowledges that music cultivates the soul which would transform the students into great leaders of the state. If Plato approves of music, therefore, the poet should then emulate the heroes and the gods who have strong attributes of music.
Since young people learn essentially through imitation, one of the most important tasks of education is the selection of objects to which they will be exposed. Plato does not share the assumption that young people can become stronger by confronting negative models; his conception of mimesis suggests more that the effect would be unfavorable, leaving them weaker than before.
For that reason young people should be shielded from everything that might interfere with their ability to fulfill tasks later entrusted to them by the state.An efficacy study can maximise the likelihood of observing an intervention effect by investigating the benefits and harms of it under highly controlled conditions. Mar 14, Clare rated it it was amazing.
His footage has a natural movement and flow as he tried to counterbalance the helicopter moves and adjust the framing. Will say more later but Preface by William Joyce.
Actual Rating: Murdoch, I. These sessions established work principles for the whole show and ultimately saved time. Blinding of operators and patients will not be possible because of the evident differences between the techniques. Very nice illustrations and wonderful words can be found in this book about the animated film Rise of the Guardians.
