With insightful commentary from leading animators, Wells and Moore also introduce you to the many different career paths open to aspiring animators, from storyboard artist or character designer to VFX artist or writer and director. They also provide you with key tips on producing engaging portfolios and show reels.

- Illustrated with over 300 images, including preliminary sketches, frame-by-frame analyses and shots of animators at work.

- Now explores the animated documentary genre and the role of visual effects and gaming in contemporary animation.

About the Author:

Paul Wells is a professor of animation at Loughborough University, UK.

Samantha Moore teaches animation at the University of Wolverhampton, UK.

Review:

The book is terrific. Beyond being a textbook, it strikes me as being a very rich resource for animators and film-makers ... The material is serious yet highly approachable ... The book is a bargain, especially as an academic text.

Intelligently organized and lavishly illustrated, The Fundamentals of Animation is distinguished from most how-to-animate guides for being multidimensional in approach and multivalent in function ... Wells's book teaches its users not only to do, but to think animation.

This is a great book, particularly for beginners. I particularly liked that it includes contexts that lead students to explore next steps ... The interviews with animators are also helpful, as they provide another voice and perspective. I really like the layout. The stills are a definite strength.

Excellent publication ... really well researched, written and designed ... extremely reader friendly.

Very impressed. Seems clear and concise. I think my students will find it very useful and informative. Visually pleasing with bite-sized bits of information.

A good introductory text to animation. Very useful tips on creating characters and storylines. Practical tutorials to engage students in practice. Well designed. Very readable language.
