For advanced beginner courses in Computer Animation/Illustration, Career Development. Unique in approach, this book focuses on the business of animation-rather than on the technical aspects of specific software operation-i.e., it fills the gap between "how to blow up planets" and how to make animation profitable in the industrial/commercial/educational sectors. Using a hands-on real-job project format, the book engages students from start to finish on several comprehensive, multidimensional projects-taking them beyond simple button-pushing sequences to a broad view of how the project phases fit together and should be handled efficiently and professionally for maximum business impact. Focusing on an efficient how-to process, it addresses both the technical how-to of each type of job using 3D Studio MAX, AND the broader picture of finding work, selling it, managing it, delivering it, collecting payment, following-up for repeat sales, record keeping, and back-up and storage.
