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 form which breathes life into inanimate drawings, Tony White, an award-winning animator, covers every aspect of the process. He provides technical information and explains in easy-to-follow text and step-by-step illustrations, how to capture movement, expression, and emotion. He shows you how to convncingly animate birds and animals and explores special effects - wind, water, fire, and solid objects - that can add realism, drama, and atmosphere to animation.

This book takes the mystery out of the animation process and provides sound, reliable guidance and information. Topics include:

Content
The Process of Animation
The Animator's Toolkit
Inbetweening
Head Turns
Walks
Runs
Realistic Touches
Technical Information

The Animal Kingdom
Dialogue

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. He assisted Richard Williams, the internationally acclaimed film director, on A Christmas Carol, which won an Academy Award for animation. White lives in London with his wife and two daughters.

From Library Journal:

Like so many of the crafts, animation has suffered from the introduction of new technology. In this case computer-generated images have done much to displace the art of animation. It is White's intention to provide a foundation for apprenticeship training in order to preserve the animator's craft. His book is primarily a multilevel workbook. The only assumption is that the reader will be a cartoonist with an interest in animation. White lets the reader in on all pertinent aspects of animation from inbetweening to matching dialogue with the drawn pictures. At the end of each chapter there is an assignment for the practitioner. A valuable reference tool for most libraries and essential for art libraries. Mike Donovan, Cornell Univ.
