About The Fundamentals of Animation

Packed with examples from classic and contemporary films, The Fundamentals of Animation presents each stage of the animation production process in an engaging visual style, whilst providing an historical and critical context for four core disciplines: drawn/cel; 2D/3D stop-motion; computer generated; and experimental animation.

With insightful commentary from leading animators, Wells and Moore also introduce you to the many different career paths open to aspiring animators, from storyboard artist or character designer to VFX artist or writer and director. They also provide you with key tips on producing engaging portfolios and show reels.

- Illustrated with over 300 images, including preliminary sketches, frame-by-frame analyses and shots of animators at work.

- Now explores the animated documentary genre and the role of visual effects and gaming in contemporary animation.

- Features more than 20 interviews with a range of international practitioners including Pete Docter, Director, Monsters, Inc. (2001), Up (2009) and Inside Out (2015).

“Intelligently organized and lavishly illustrated, The Fundamentals of Animation is distinguished from most how-to-animate guides for being multidimensional in approach and multivalent in function ... Wells's book teaches its users not only to do, but to think animation.” –  Victoria Meng, Animation Journal

“This is a great book, particularly for beginners. I particularly liked that it includes contexts that lead students to explore next steps ...
