I gotta say this book is wonderful in every way. If you love storyboarding, and wonder about how stories were developed in Pixar; or how was the politics and dynamics at Disney's animation studios when Walt was alive; this is for you. The stories of both Joe Ranft (Pixar) and Joe Grant (Disney Animation Studios) are inspiring; how these completely different men drove some of the most beautiful stories ever known in animation to these days. How they worked and progressed in their careers... how much they loved story-telling in animation.
Mr. Canemaker, the author of this book, added quotes from everyone in the business which provides an emotional and objective picture of both of these men; a work of art indeed.
A word of caution though, don't buy this book for art, it has a fair amount; but it is not what the book is about, would have been great to have more art, but it isn't the purpose of the book. If you're trying to get storyboard art get, PAPER DREAMS, or books like the The Art of Toy Story or the other Disney & Pixar films.
Finally, if you work in story in any way, either writing, drawing, developing, storyboarding or all of them, this book will make you stand up to be a better story-teller. Who will be the next Joe?
Enjoy the ride!
