This Book is an ideal introduction to the world of 3-D animation from the acknowledged experts. The introduction and The Medium sections give an interesting background to the history animation with specific references to the Aardman history.
The section entitled Simple Techniques is the bit I found the most useful as it gives a series of exercises to try out for real. There is good advice about building simple sets and getting the lighting right.
I was however a little disappointed about the content in the book about how to use computers to assist with simple animations. Perhaps there is another book out there.
If you are interested in getting the right start with animation and want to save yourself making the simple but frustrating mistakes that others have made read this book.

A suprisingly informative, enthusiastic and fun introduction to the world of animation. I have used this book to great effect teaching animation to people from three yrs. old to thirty three!
Each chapter is clearly articulated and lavished with large colour illustrations from the films we all know and love. The deatil of lip-synching, model making, story-boadrding and set building as well as the fundamentals of animating are communicated in such a clear and enthusiastic way, it is hard not to catch the animating bug! Great all round book, highly recommended.
