5.0 out of 5 stars Very inspiring book 20 May 2013
By Paltin Yan - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I've found this book very inspiring.
It gives a good understanding what is important and what is not.
I'm suggesting this book to anyone who wants to make indie animations, and like classic animation,
and nor contemporary moving gummy-plastic dolls.

I just recently became interested in creating my own animated film and I found this book to be very helpful as far as all the different things that I have to take into account.

5.0 out of 5 stars Make Toons that Sell - from the heart! 28 Oct. 2012
By Sylvester Carolan - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Whether you like Bill Plympton's style or not, you have to admire his amazing talent and his love of animation. Here is a book that tells it like it is: from the opening story of his deal with the devil, to his personal stories of struggling to make it. Not too make it big, but just to make a living doing what he loves.

I must say, I really enjoyed this book and was surprised by how much material Bill managed to cover - budgets, raising money, distribution, ideas, drawing techniques (I love the section on caricatures and his observation that the process is very similar to animation), and of course, animation. Character design, walk cycles, and use of color are also mentioned. This book really does touch on the whole animation process (at least from Bill's perspective) and contains a goldmine of nuggets in tips and techniques. As I read through the book, I found myself wanting to look at some of the examples being discussed, so it's shame a DVD wasn't included or at least a reference section after each section with any relevant websites.

A beautifully illustrated, designed, and well-written book. Highly recommended.

P.S. Idiots and Angels is mentioned extensively in the book. You can checkout clips from the movie here:

3.0 out of 5 stars Didn't go far enough!!! 12 Dec. 2012
By AZ Animators - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I like Bill Plympton's films, and his animation style. I thought this book would reveal the secrets to being a successful animator. He introduces ideas to finance your film but doesn't give any specifics about how to attract investors or get grants to create a film. Instead I was treated to a autobiography rather than a how to manual. I did find the chapter on character design very helpful but the rest was very basic information that you would get in art school. I would have appreciated some breakdowns of his animation style or more technical coverage and less oh his personal history, but overall I think it is a good read if you are a fan of the artist and his movies.

5.0 out of 5 stars A must have for anyone that already makes their own films or is even thinking about jumping in! 26 Nov. 2013
By Jim Lujan - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Beginner, Pro, or anywhere in between; this book is a fantastic resource for information that is both useful and inspirational to the animated filmmaker. Real life examples are given that illustrate the many paths that an independent animator can take to get their films financed, seen, and ultimately distributed.Practical advice and real life lessons shared. A must have for anyone that already makes their own films or is even thinking about jumping in!
