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 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:
