LibraryThing ReviewUser Review - LibraryThing
I would recommend this book to anyone with a passing interest in animation in general, or a serious interest in the history of animation, pre-production or production of animated works, or the business of animation. That it is getting a bit outdated is not too much of a problem, because it's still current enough to be vey relevant. However, while the information in the book is very thorough, the structure of how it is presented is problematic. I would like to see this book after a significant edit that would keep all of the information (and update it) but present it without bouncing around and without off-the-cuff unexplained references.
Animation: the whole storyUser Review - Book Verdict
If you've seen Mighty Mouse, Heckle and Jeckle, or Popeye or have watched Sesame Street , then you've seen Beckerman's work. Considered one of the fathers of animation, he worked for over 30 years in the legendary studios of Terrytoons and Paramount Famous Studios and now teaches at the School of Visual Arts in New York. In this comprehensive guide to the art, business, technique, and history of animation aimed at the aspiring animator, he covers drawing, using color, creating interesting characters, working with storyboards, creating a soundtrack, and more. For a book on just the graphic aspects of the art, see Kevin Hedgpeth and Steven Missal's Exploring Drawing for Animation . For solely digital animation, see Steven Withrow's Toon Art: The Graphic Art of Digital Cartooning . For those seeking the whole story, Beckerman's book is highly recommended.
