A fantastic guide to animation

by Jigglyman on Aug 1, 2008

I cannot recommend The Animator's Survival Kit enough. It's apparent right from the start that Richard Williams (director of Who Framed Roger Rabbit) knows what he's talking about. This book focuses on the basics of animation, covering all the techniques necessary to produce living, fluid animations to rival Disney. It's truly a must-have for anyone interested in the art of animation, whether it be computer or classical - either way, the ideas Williams outline is this book are necessary to know.

The best introduction to animation that I've read.

by RichardWSmith on Sep 16, 2007

As someone working in the computer game industry the students we hire often can do 3D animation but it is not 'alive'. After reviewing this book, I bought it for my company. It is the best introduction to animation I've read and is filled with tips on bringing the motion of the characters to life.
