This book explains the creation of animation from concept to production.
Instead of focusing on singular aspects of animation production, talented animators can learn to make better films by understanding the process as a whole.
Veteran independent filmmaker Hannes Rall teaches you how to develop an animation project from the very start of conceptual exploration though to completed production.
Subjects like script, storyboarding, character and production design illuminate the pre-production process; later chapters explain the production process applied to different animation techniques like 2D animation, 3D computer animation and stop motion.
This book is just the right mix of practical advice, lavish illustrations, and industry case studies to give you everything you need to start creating animation today.
