Customer Review

on 28 April 2011
Well's book is brilliantly worded, yet badly realised. Page after page after page of tedious case study throw us off the main arguments and to put it bluntly, bore us. It is extremely dry, even by academic standards, which only takes away the little inspiration it contains. There are very good points in there and actually a lot of useful information, particularly the deconstruction of comedy in animated films and the history of the medium. Unfortunately though, getting at this is like trying to get blood out of a stone.

Good if you need some insight on key animations and the medium's history, but does very little to give animation an artistic or practical purpose (as I think Well's set out to do).
