The Animator's Workbook

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The Animator's Workbook offers a complete course on the principles and techniques of drawn animation. Stressing that animation is a subtle and exacting art from which breathes life into inanimate drawings, Tony White, an award-winning animator, covers every aspect of the process. He provides technical information and explains easy-to-follow text and step-by-step illustrations, how to capture, movement, expression, and emotion. He shows you how to convincingly animate birds and animals and explores special effects — wind, water, fire, and solid objects — that can add realism, drama, and atmosphere to animation. The Animator's Workbook takes the mystery out of the animation process and provides sound, reliable guidance and information.

Review:

"Through clear text and charming color illustration he actually shows...how it is done". Step-By-Step Graphics

Review:

"A valuable reference tool". Library Journal

Synopsis:

Discusses the process of animation, describes the tools and materials used, and looks at head turns, walks, runs, exaggerated actions, and special effects.

About the Author

Tony White, one of Britain's foremost animators, was head of design and background on the animated television series "Jackson Five" and won first prize at the Chicago Film Festival with his first short film, Quartet. His second film, A Short, Tall Story, was adopted by the United Nations for promoting peace. He assisted Richard Williams, the internationally acclaimed film director, on A Christmas Carol, which won an Academy Award for animation. After White studied and worked with Ken Harris and Art Babbit, the grand old masters of Disney and Warner Bros. Animation, he designed, directed, and animated the award-winning film titles for Pink Panther Strikes Again and produced his own film, Hokusai?An Animated Sketchbook, which was awarded the British Academy Award for the best short factual film. White ? who has produced many animated television commercials as well as Cathedral, a thirty-minute, animated special for American television ? lives in London with his wife and two daughters.
