Format: Paperback
What an absolutely amazing book!

Tim Maloney, professional animator, takes readers who are basicaly familiar with computer animation from concept to completion. His vast experience shines through in his treatments of writing, storyboarding, recording, layout, character design, timing, animation, editing, desing, and finishing.

This is so cool, as his text follows the steps clearly. The bonus DVD gives links to animation programs and helpful examples.

Perfect for the budding animator.

As a book of instruction for would be animators, this one
speaks to the young people of the new Millenium.
Maloney's art work is in keeping with the current trend, which
I have difficulty describing. I will say this:
The characters are minimal, possibly with the IDEA
that you, the viewer, probably could draw like this too.
Having said that, the book covers some basics, but I do
not recommend it.
Go with the classics, people who were animating with expressive
characters and emotion. Tony White, and Richard William's books
are far more expressive and instructive. Look for others too.

The book covers not only what one would need to know about animation, but also provides information on the basic rules of art that one would find in any good art instruction book. This combination, as well as readability and style, is what makes this a dynamite book and a great tool for the at home animator.
