Product description


'The book is terrific. Beyond being a textbook, it strikes me as being a very rich resource for animators and film-makers ... The material is serious yet highly approachable ... The book is a bargain, especially as an academic text.' -- Thomas Castillo, University of Arizona, USA.

'Intelligently organized and lavishly illustrated, The Fundamentals of Animation is distinguished from most how-to-animate guides for being multidimensional in approach and multivalent in function ... Wells's book teaches its users not only to do, but to think animation.' - Victoria Meng, Animation Journal, 2006.

'Very impressed. Seems clear and concise. I think my students will find it very useful and informative. Visually pleasing with bite-sized bits of information.' - Tom Ingham, Cambridge School of Visual and Performing Arts, UK.

'A good introductory text to animation. Very useful tips on creating characters and storylines. Practical tutorials to engage students in practice. Well designed. Very readable language.' - --Victor Valbuena, Republic Polytechnic, Singapore.
