Animation has gained increasing popularity during the last decade, with animated feature films drawing in millions to our cinemas. But why just watch animation when you can make your own? Draw Animation guides you through the fascinating process of making an animated film. Paul Hardman lets you share the fascination held by all who work in animation; fascination for the magic of life that you're able to impart to a stack of inanimate, cartoon drawings. Animation, the magical medium, can transport you to a land and time that is only restricted by your own imagination: your characters can do the impossible and become the impossible in an instant. The process of producing an animated film involves many varied skills and a great deal of time and dedication. Paul takes you step by step through a process which you will be able to achieve in your own home or studio. Because the set-up of a scene can often become complicated Paul shows you how to avoid the pitfalls and provides you with solutions for a simple and effective way to produce a convincing end result that will prove both exciting and rewarding.
