Animation is one of the hottest areas of filmmaking today and the master animator who bridges the old generation and the new is Richard Williams. During his nearly fifty years in the business, Williams has been one of the true innovators, winning three Academy Awards and serving as the link between Disney's golden age of animation by hand and the new computer animation exemplified by the films from Pixar. Perhaps even more important, though, has been his dedication in passing along his knowledge to a new generation of animators. In this book, based on his sold-out master classes in the United States and across Europe, Williams provides the underlying principles of animation that every animator from beginner to expert, classic animator to computer-animation whiz needs. He illustrates his points with hundreds of drawings, distilling the secrets of the masters into a working system. In this revised edition, he expands upon and illuminates more difficult areas of animation, such as animal action and gaits and the correct use of live action, to help animators push the medium in new directions."

Book Description Hardback. Condition: New. Main - Revised Edition. Language: English. Brand new Book. This is the one book every animator should have on their desk - whether they work in film, computer graphics or video game animation. Richard Williams is the pre-eminent figure in motion picture animation, and he has forged a reputation as an outstanding teacher as well as a top practitioner. In recent years, the Academy Award for animation effects has been virtually guaranteed to go to a student of Richard Williams, whether the movie in question is Toy Story or Star Wars: The Phantom Menace.This book is based on master-classes Richard Williams has been giving to professional and would-be animators around the world over the years. Companies such as Industrial Light and Magic, Disney, and Dreamworks send their animators to study at Williams' feet as he is generally regarded as the link between the 'golden Age' of Disney animation and the new-style computer animation exemplified by Toy Story.
