Inside This Book (Learn More)
First Sentence
To animate, and the related words, animation, animated and animator all derive from the latin verb, animare, which means 'to give life to', and within the context of the animated film, this largely means the artificial creation of the illusion of movement in inanimate lines and forms. Read the first page

I thought "understanding animation" gives you a very good insight to the psychology in animation,covering all areas, such as narrative strategies, ways to make you laugh, experimental animation, orthodox animation...etc. It also contains case studies for each example, which is great.I certainly find this book of much help when writing about animation,as I think it is very complete.Great to have, especially if you are studying animation.

This book is full of useful information and unique insights however Wells makes you work for your knowledge. Some say that the book is brilliantly worded, however Wells seems to struggle to put his more complex ideas into straightforward sentences, preferring to constrict these ideas into single sentences rather than giving them the space that they deserve. Good writing should not be convoluted, and it should not be the aim of a writer to make sentences as compact as possible. Nonetheless, Understanding Animation is an ideal choice should you seek to better appreciate the workings of the animated world.

At the end of the day it is an accademic text to it is going to be very wordy, but I've found that if you do other reading on the topics as well, it's easily accessable. It's a really useful book for the unit 'Popular American Animation' - a second year undergraduate module.
