Descripción del producto
"Tony White's newer books: Animation from Pencils to Pixels: Classical Techniques for the Digital Animator, and How to Make Animated Films: Tony White's Complete Masterclass on the Traditional Principals of Animation are just as excellent. The Complete Masterclass title contains much of what is in The Animator's Workbook along with much more. Animation from Pencils to Pixels is a much broader book. It covers project financing, animation pre and post-production, basic filmmaking principles, soundtrack recording, etc. while also including the principles of animation production itself."--AWN.com

White leaves nothing out. What contemporary digital animators most need to know can be found between this book's covers - from conceptions to creation and through the many stages of the production pipeline to distribution. This book is intended to serve as your one-stop how-to animation guide. Whether you're new to animation or a very experienced digital animator, here you'll find fundamentals, key classical techniques, and professional advice that will strengthen your work and well-roundedness as an animator.
Speaking from experience, White presents time-honored secrets of professional animaton with a warm, masterly, and knowledgeable approach that has evolved from over 30 years as an award-winning animator/director.
The book's enclosed CD-Rom presents classic moments from animation's history through White's personal homage to traditional drawn animation, "Endangered Species." Using movie clips and still images from the film, White shares the 'making of' journal of the film, detailing each step, with scene-by-scene descriptions, technique by technique. Look for the repetitive stress disorder guide on the CD-Rom, called, "Mega-hurts." Watch the many movie clips for insights into the versatility that a traditional, pencil-drawn approach to animaton can offer.

Why I like this book. When you go to school for animation you have a lot of stuff thrown at you and no matter how good your notes are you can not remember it all. You need to refresh your skills. This book was not only good at that but also much more. It is a fun read, an interesting read.
This book covers the complete process from picking up the pencil to marketing/distribution. Tony knows his stuff, he should he has been a professional animator for many years and you have probably seen his works. If you have seen the Pink Panther Strikes Again ("does your dog bite?") you have, he did all the animation for the film.
Traditional animation is an art form and it seems like it is finally getting some of the respect it deserves. 3D is the rage these days, Pixel does an excellent job and nobody does it better, unfortunately there are more bad 3D feature films than good. Even Disney is hiring back some traditional animators and creating some old school, that's cool.
If you want to learn animation pick up this book and The Illusion of Life and you will learn so very much. But the learning process also requires doing. Like the saying goes, "A dream and a number 2 pencil will take you anywhere".

With chapters on Project financing, management, copyright issues, production planning and more it has all the information you'll need to plan an independent production to a professional level as well as prepare you for working as part of a studio team.
Primarily aimed at classical 2D animation, Tony White takes you through all the different methods of animating 2D characters, from hand drawn on paper right through to digital vector animation concepts and techniques. He then shows you how all that 2D animation knowledge can be applied to animating 3D computer generated character models.
Through out the book Tony continually references his own short, animated film, Endangered Species (included on the accompanying CD ROM), using it to show examples of everything from how he wrote up project management charts and dope sheets to how each scene was animated - he also does a scene by scene detailed break down of the films construction.
You can't really go too far wrong with a book that even talks about many health issues (on the CD ROM) facing animators as a result of their work and how to avoid them.
I found the book easy to follow, very comprehensive and an excellent source for future reference. It's perhaps not the only book you'll ever need but it's an excellent foundation book for any aspiring animator, regardless of the type of animation they're most interested in. Definitely a MUST HAVE.
ANIMATION FROM PENCILS TO PIXELS is unique among animation books since artwork from White's short film ENDANGERED SPECIES is used to illustrate most of the sections of the book, though some student work is also included. Some material from THE ANIMATOR'S WORKBOOK is repeated, mainly in the sections that deal with action analysis. White has included valuable chapters on Flash and vector-based 2D animation. While drawing is clearly his first love there are also chapters on CGI '3D' animation written from the perspective of a professional animator.
The massive book (over 500 pages long) is readable and easy to navigate. Images are large and well-placed (this has been a notable failing in many animation how-to books.)
It's quite ambitious to incorporate preproduction, production, and post in two media into one volume. If you want a good, well written overview of animation production in the 21st century, this is the book to get.
I would like to see ENDANGERED SPECIES on a full DVD copy; the PDF format in the original edition is a bit hard to play on this computer.
