Christopher Hart's Animation StudioBook - 2003
Best-selling author Christopher Hart starts with a basic overview of drawing the cartoon head and body, adding expressions, creating characters, and so on. He then takes readers on a backstage tour of a classic animation studio: In the "animation department," step-by-step lessons demonstrate how to animate humans and animals, plan sequences, and add special effects. In the "layout department," readers learn to compose scenes and place characters. Finally, a walk through the "film department" leads readers through choosing camera angles, making backgrounds move, creating fantastic settings, and more. Future animators finish by creating an easy flip book to set their own simple sequences in motion.
