Corsaro's new book H2D has a different point of view which is the application of Flash as a major part of a broadcast production environment. He spends a lot of time in interviews and discussion talking about the typical studio production pipeline and the pros and cons of Flash as a cost saving tool. There is an interesting comparison between "Ink and Paint" applications and Flash. As well as pro's and con's of scanning VS digital drawing. Corsaro and co-author Clifford Parrott also discuss character design do's and don'ts, optimizing Flash's strengths, creating special effects, implementing camera moves, and methods for going from Flash to broadcast. There is minor overlap between TFA and H2D but it is minimal, mostly some of the same art work, otherwise H2D moves toward a different focus which is Flash as a major tool in broadcast production. References to the WB, Cartoon Network and Hanna Barbera as well as interviews with industry pros are scattered through out the book. A CD with samples different from the CD that came with TFA is included. I personally enjoy Corsaro's writing style and I found both of his books easy to read and very informative. TFA is a better introductory book for new Flash movie makers.Read more ›
And Corsaro knows his stuff and lays it out, not just Flash the program but the animation business and the service specialties in that insular biz. I was doing animation layout work for Curious George but I was new at it and was giving the art director some frustration. I asked him if there was a good reference book to learn a lot of things a layout artist has to know, nomenclature, pipeline conventions, etc. Corsaro's book, even though it focuses on Flash, is a great reference for animation people of all sorts. History, concepts, scheduling, pre-production, scripts, audio, post production. Tips, tips, tips. I've got underlined stuff on every page. Highly recommended. And believe it, Flash is coming on big time. Learn this program if you want some job security in the animation revolution that's just starting.
