Talk of the Tome was a podcast about making a projection-mapped pop-up book, The Tome of the Seashore, from inception to showcase and everything in between.
||Clean#14: Postmortem||They say you learn the most from your failures. For this, the final episode of Talk of the Tome, Dylan and Timothy turn inward and hold a project postmortem to decide what they're going to learn from making a projection-mapped pop-up book which, by most accounts, didn't turn out so hot.||1/10/2016||Free||View in iTunes|
||Clean#12: Traditional v. Programatic Animation||It's an episode dedicated solely to the animations in Tome of the Seashore. Twelve down, only two more to go!||1/4/2016||Free||View in iTunes|
||Clean#11: Music and Sound Design||It's another solo episode! Dylan talks about using music and sound effects, how to find and fine-tune the different elements of a soundtrack for a project, and later shares his workflows for writing music on both Windows and Mac OS X.||12/27/2015||Free||View in iTunes|
||Clean#10: Text and Typography||After a month-and-a-half hiatus, Dylan is back for a solo episode. On this episode's agenda: how to choose fonts, how typography can be used as a storytelling tool, and the importance of CYOB.||12/26/2015||Free||View in iTunes|
||Clean#9: Major Story Surgery||Despite many important updates bursting at the seems, clamoring for attention, Tim and Dylan spend the whole episode talking about the story.||11/12/2015||Free||View in iTunes|
||Clean#7: Pull-up Resistors (and a TouchDesigner Thing)||After a failed discussion of circuit design, Tim learns about how awesome Arduino’s are while Dylan talks about abusing his body for art. Then, Tim considers drawing a lustful tree and Dylan hates Christmas. Surprisingly, no singing ensues.||10/25/2015||Free||View in iTunes|
||Clean#6: Each Page Is a Circuit||A status update of sorts. In between coughing and guzzling cold medicine, Dylan engineered a way to read page turns and Timothy really likes trees. Not much editing here because reasons.||10/22/2015||Free||View in iTunes|
||Clean#5: Dual Booting, Microcontrollers, and Web Ads||Dylan recounts his thrilling tale of installing Windows on a Macintosh, Timothy learns about microcontrollers, and the world gets yet another discussion about how bad web ads are. Much singing ensues. The world needed this extended edition!||10/13/2015||Free||View in iTunes|
||Clean#4: Conceptual Artist and a Raccoon Suit||Dylan quizzes Timothy on how he draws things, a dark magic which Dylan understands not at all. They talk about designing villains and share what they are looking forward to realizing over the next few weeks. Then they breathe heavily into their microphones and talk about random stuff. It's extended edition gold!||10/4/2015||Free||View in iTunes|
||Clean#3: Projection Mapping a Fractured Projactia||Dylan and Timothy try to explain what projection mapping is and how it's done. Tim glitches out like a dial up dubstep beat machine. Then they talk about how to make miniatures before Tim turns into a singing Robocop. That's the extended edition.||9/26/2015||Free||View in iTunes|
||Clean#2: A Garden Path of Feedback||Dylan and Timothy respond to some feedback regarding pop-up book design, project priorities, and whether or not they will use an Arduino to augment their pop-up book. Then they spend far too much time writing far too little while singing way too much. Remember, it's not bad editing -- it's an extended edition.||9/19/2015||Free||View in iTunes|
