Animator’s Survival Kit by RIchard Williams Book Review
The “how-to” is the oldest and most enduring of animation books. There is something about the magic of animation that has always made people inquire, “How did they do it?” Moreover, ever since, E.G. Lutz started this genre in 1920, there has been quite a steady stream of titles purporting to answer. However, this one is the best.
The animation craft is amongst the hottest and the most creative areas of movie making these days. Throughout over Forty years that Richard Williams has become among the real leaders, and functions as the connection between the golden age of animation by hand and the new computer animation accomplishments.
Within this animation book, based upon his sold-out Animation Masterclass in the US and also across The European countries, Williams provides fundamental concepts of animation that every single animator – starting from beginner to professional, traditional animator to computer animation expert – really needs.
Making use of a vast selection of drawings, Williams distills the strategies of the experts right into a working system to produce a manuscript this is undoubtedly the standard work with just about all sorts of animation for experts, students, and animation enthusiasts.
The latest expanded edition features much more about animal action, invention, and realism with detailed animation examples
