Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

- This book is required reading for many animation courses around the world. Puppet animation, also sometimes called stop-action animation, is one of the oldest animation techniques and is widely used in movies, television, and classrooms at all educational levels, from kindergarten to professional film schools.
- Aardman studio--under the direction of Nick Park and Peter Lord--has inspired a revival of interest in puppet animation. It is the creator of the wildly popular Wallace and Gromit short films, as well as the "Rex the Runt" and "Angry Kid" shorts and the Oscar-winning Creature Comforts, now a hit television series in England.
- In 1999, Aardman's first feature film, Chicken Run, was a huge box-office success. It was the third highest grossing English film ever released in the U.S., earning more than $115 million here. Aardman is presently scheduled to release a Wallace and Gromit feature film in 2005.
- This instructional book is written in a simple and accessible style for experienced animators and novices alike. Its wonderful illustrations give a clear and inspiring view of the techniques of puppet animation.

Synopsis:

Creating 3-D Animation, originally published in 1998 and based on the work of Nick Park and Peter Lord of Aardman Animation, creators of the wildly popular Wallace and Gromit short films, has become required reading for animation courses around the world. In addition to being the most thorough treatment of 3-D puppet animation, also known as stop-action animation, the book was the first complete how-to guide that catered to both novices and experienced animators.

Since the book was published, Aardman released Chicken Run, its first feature film and an enormous box-office success. Also during that time, the studio began to rely more heavily on computer graphics. This revised edition brings Aardman's technology and achievements up to date. With 32 additional pages that include techniques developed during the making of Chicken Run and a further exploration into the use of computer graphics-a necessity now for animators-this edition remains the best book on the art of puppet animation and a must-have for all animators and animation junkies.
