A must for you folks who work in the animation business. The eighty studios included have from six to eight spreads showing stills, roughs, storyboards and sometimes model sheets. The colour, design and printing are first-class. Most of the studios are American, no surprise there but the rest of the world gets a good showing, England, France, Holland, Brazil, Russia, Australia, Japan, Portugal etc. Having so many countries helps to produce an amazing range of styles. The several hundred beautiful images in the book are all very well but animation implies movement and this is where the DVD comes in, divided into these sections, Short films, Excerpts, Trailers, TV commercials, Making of and finally a Show Reel, you'll be watching for three and a half hours! My favorites were the work of Little Fluffy Clouds and Duck Soup Studios but again the work is from around the world and so really varied. 'Animation Now!' is a super package just as a book but throw in the DVD and it surely is a 'must have' goodie.

I think it's quite hard to keep a book like this current, since much of the information in it is already quite dated; but nonetheless, it's rather impressive. Studios are listed in alphabetical order ... Read full review
