About this deal

It is an incredible document - essentially an oral history of the Disney Studio and their practices by two master animators who worked there for 40+ years. This kind of motivation may be there, but I believe that one of their goals is to share their personal experiences selflessly.

Within the chapters succeeding “The Principles of Animation”, the authors really emphasized how Disney and his team grew to experiment and pushed animation to its limits, given the current technology. It gave a sense of, ‘us artists are all in this together’ and really felt like wisdom was being passed down onto me rather than just reading any old textbook.

If the creator plays a role similar to God, he has a basic idea of the general fate and character of this role, and may even have a general consideration of the final outcome of his creation.This book gives a history of Disney animation, explaining the processes involved in clear, non-technical terms. This is the first I have found that dives a bit deeper and discusses Disney’s history and the principles and procedures of animation. While reading, though, it is more understandable as to why they phrased the preface the way they did.

From text to pictures, to movies, animations, all these various manifestations, they are just a way of telling stories to human beings. This is not an early Bday gift or late Christmas present, this is a gift from Bear to Bear, love Bear just because.

It's an inspiring book recommended to animators, great for those who want a flashback to the golden era of animation.

Whether both of which, animation can be more than most of the other of the more fully done in the form of artistic expression. Additionally, what felt like a rather long portion of the book (in a good way), was chapter ten, titled, “How to Get It on the Screen”. He was one of Disney's Nine Old Men, and the last surviving at the time of his death from natural causes.When we started Snow White, there was no Dopey in the cast, Pinocchio had no Jiminy Cricket, and Bambi had no Thumper. The use of animation to inspire music to better fit the mood of the story and characters by not having prescored music is interesting and opens many doors for animators. Its biased Disney-perspective gave it a sense that Disney is the only studio that has the capability to create such stunning films. I've got her this for Christmas so haven't seen her reaction yet but I'm so excited for her to see it. One portion of the book that I found rather interesting was in chapter seven, titled, “Hyperion: The Explosion”.
