If you want to be an animator, this is a MUST in your library sitting right next to your copy of the Illusion of Life.
This is CORE reading for aspiring animators and a survival guide for working professionals. For the last 11 years of my career, I have referred to this guide religiously.
For one thing, the Animator's Survival Kit is no casual reference - it's a brick of a book overflowing with learning material. There are chapters upon chapters of really rich references and diagrams.
I hope to learn a whole lot from following this book. I will update this review when I've explored it in more detail. But so far, everything about this book seems top knotch.
A lot went over my head as I'm a digital animator and a lot of the tips and tricks were more specifically for traditional, hand-drawn, cel animation, but the techniques are still extremely handy.
The book is also quite easy to read. And not just because the language isn't overly complicated or technical. It's just a joy to sit down and study. Not dry at all and doesn't feel like a textbook.
Absolutely recommend for anyone who wants an offline guide for animation techniques.
The author does a great job of taking a somewhat dry topic and making it interesting, it's hard to put the darn book down! And even when you do, you just wanna go an animate, even if you don't have time!
Wonderful book that I would recommend to anyone.
