As a side note, I believe this book would be a great educational companion piece to Richard Williams' "The Animator's Survival Kit" (see link below). As Williams' book delves into the nitty gritty and hard core mechanics of character animation, Blazer's book shows the reader how to combine that animation with design and storytelling to create a film. A great combo for any aspiring animated filmmaker!
The Animator's Survival Kit: A Manual of Methods, Principles and Formulas for Classical, Computer, Games, Stop Motion and Internet Animators
Through the midst of wonderful refreshers from color theory and composition of frame to the importance of audio and timing, there’s a lesson in particular that i think ALL CREATIVES NEED. She really teaches you to embrace our crazy, hectic, thought-stuffed minds. And gives you comprehensive and EASY steps that help you organize the chaos and DISCIPLINE YOUR CREATIVITY to make your work come to life with purpose, intention, and all of your creative juices flowing.
I’d recommend this book to a seasoned professional, just as I would to a beginner starting out for the first time. If nothing else, its an incredible refresher and a visual feast with illustrations that are as quirky as some of Liz’s great lines scattered throughout the book.
