More About the Author
Even I am amazed by the journey I have taken with animators. There have been many thousands of students, the majority of them working pros, in studios and schools from L.A. to Sydney to Beijing, Singapore, Germany and India -- and many more cities. My Acting for Animators master class is now a respected and popular part of the animation industry.
This is an incredibly exciting time for the animation industry. It has been less than 20 years since "Toy Story" was released. Look at how far animation has advanced. Now try to imagine where it might be 20 years from now. Amazing.

Not everyone may appreciate the style of presentation but the information is some very good material for aspiring or established animators looking into character animation. It is mostly a study of motivation. I must add that the cd that came with this book is on crack. Actually I thourouly enjoyed it. If you ever tire of the book just pop the cd into your computer while you have some friends over. The aghast look on thier faces, as they watch these actors be attacked by unseen forces, is aboslutely priceless and well worth the cost of the cd.
