5.0 out of 5 stars excellent choice for an absolute beginner, 8 Jan 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Get Started in Animation (Paperback)
Well, I bought a lot of books to start exploring the world of animation.Among all the books the most captivating and eye catching was this one.But inside it , it gets even better.It shows all the animation techniques, very well explained, with photos and tips and step by step advice how to put everything in practice.The best part was how to make my own puppet.It amazed me how close the author was to a beginner's thoughts such as 'I wannt something cheap and practical for a start'.I think that it must be the first book someone has to read.Then he/she must proceed to something more complicated ,to learn to manage a software because intructions on how to use a particular software in the book are not written.Well, I read it in just two days and I am not even an English-speaking person!!!:)

This review is from: Get Started in Animation (Paperback)
It is an excellent book, but a word of caution. The two titles that Amazon are offering above are the same book! one is the English version, the other is the US version. , so dont buy both......

5.0 out of 5 stars So simple and effective. Outstandingly informative handmade animation 101, 16 Oct 2013

This review is from: Get Started in Animation (Paperback)
Do not have a misinterpretation of this book by its cover. This book is like the handmade animation tutor I never had, seriously. You think you're comfortable with the basic knowledge you have of this kind of animation, but when you read this book, it delves actually really deep into the sophisticated use of the basics. When reading this book, I felt that it exposed the gaps of knowledge that I didn't know I had then instantly filled them. For just about a tenner, you can't really look further for a book that covers these topics easily and clearly from the ground up.

Kit, equipment, toolbox, sand animation, claymation, cut-out animation, pixilation, 2D animation, stop-motion animation, simple puppet armatures from the ground up, acting, making props for stop motion, lights, camera, stop-motion software, show reel, making a film, cycle for animation, storyboarding and so much more.

In conclusion, feels like you're in school again as I GUARANTEE it will teach you a few things you don't know. Super-simple to understand. Have I made you want to buy this book yet, because you should.
