88 Names podcast, episode 1: Brandon Oldenburg

The first full episode of the 88 Names podcast is now live. Join host Blake Collier and I as we talk to Brandon Oldenburg, the Academy Award–winning director of The Fantastic Flying Books of Mr. Morris Lessmore, and co-founder and Chief Creative Officer of Flight School, “a studio of artists and technicians, fearlessly exploring the unknown in films, games, VR, AR and whatever lies in the wide and boundless sky.”

If you have a VR headset, you should check out Manifest 99, the Emmy Award–nominated VR story/experience I mention during the conversation. And the Flight School website has a page devoted to the immersive WWI experience War Remains, including this making-of video that will give you a sense of how dedicated VR installations look and work.

The podcast’s next episode, in which Blake interviews me about 88 Names, will drop next Tuesday, aka book publication day. Stay tuned!
