About this deal

With electronic aids being perfected and new tools and materials being used, who can possibly foresee what lies ahead? Depending on your expectation, the coloring of their personal experience and of the Disney environment could be seen either as a feature or a liability. This is a most comprehensive, colourfully illustrated document of the why's and wherefore's of Disney animation. He was one of Disney's Nine Old Men, and the last surviving at the time of his death from natural causes.

This is the first I have found that dives a bit deeper and discusses Disney’s history and the principles and procedures of animation. From text to pictures, to movies, animations, all these various manifestations, they are just a way of telling stories to human beings.Nostalgia and film buffs, students of popular culture, and that very broad audience who warmly responds to the Disney "illusion of life" will find this book compelling reading (and looking! I initially got this for animation school, but I've found that I've been using it even after I got out. Being a freelancer, I'm always questing out for knowledge and cutting-edge views - but back in the day when Disney was just getting its animated little paws on the ground, the guys behind everything were really doing something that would shake the cinematic world to its core. But he was also practical enough to work with what he had, rather than wait for what he wished he had.

While reading, though, it is more understandable as to why they phrased the preface the way they did. A "magnificent volume" that remains "essential for film collections and a feast for the most casual peruser.We can not at the beginning of time, put everything wants to know, what the character to appear, the story is what. They personally animated leading characters in most of the famous films and have decades of close association with the others who helped perfect this extremely difficult and time-consuming art form. While not a tutorial book, it does covers subjects like camera techniques, styles of background paintings, effects, colours and other technical approaches to creating animation, right down to how they voice sync a talking door knob. His last full work for Disney came with The Rescuers, in which he was caricatured as one of the film's characters, the cat Rufus. It is more designed as an insight into the mysteries of animation for the lay person, with more than enough to inspire and inform any potential animator.
