This review is from: Dream Worlds: Production Design for Animation (Hardcover)
I've recently become interested in production design for animation and had no clue where to begin. This book is so very, very helpful - Bacher's art is beautiful, and his tips on staging, camera angles and the production method of animated films are invaluable. It's also fascinating to see work from the films he has worked on, with some great crowd pleasers such as The Lion King and Beauty and the Beast included (his work for Beauty and the Beast in particular - it looks better than the look in the final film in my opinion). The only criticism I have is that he mentions a lot of artists that he admires and influenced the look of the films he worked on, and it would have been nice to see some comparisons or just a few examples to show what he means. That said, it's a fantastic book which anyone even remotely interested in production design should read.
