The Animator's Survival Kit (Hardback)

Synopsis

This is the one book every animator should have on their desk - whether they work in film, computer graphics or video game animation. Richard Williams is the pre-eminent figure in motion picture animation, and he has forged a reputation as an outstanding teacher as well as a top practitioner. In recent years, the Academy Award for animation effects has been virtually guaranteed to go to a student of Richard Williams, whether the movie in question is Toy Story or Star Wars: The Phantom Menace.



This book is based on master-classes Richard Williams has been giving to professional and would-be animators around the world over the years. Companies such as Industrial Light and Magic, Disney, and Dreamworks send their animators to study at Williams' feet as he is generally regarded as the link between the 'golden Age' of Disney animation and the new-style computer animation exemplified by Toy Story.
