The Acrobat Issue of Animation World Magazine Is Now On-line!

February is our annual motion-capture and stop-motion issue, and we have

plenty in store as usual. Sharon Schatz interviews Brian Nilles of leading

motion-capture technology firm, Vicon Motion Systems. Gregory Singer goes

behind the scenes on one of the many projects which uses Vicon's

technology, while Laura Schiff introduces us to Webbie Tookay, a new

motion-capture personality. On the stop-motion side of things, Wendy

Jackson covers Aardman Animations' current high flying times as they work

like mad on "Chicken Run" and bask in a four picture deal with DreamWorks.

We are also treated to an interview with Ray Harryhausen by Ruth and Roger

Whiter.

In other stories we remember Art Scott, a man who held significant

positions at a number of Hollywood studios from Disney to Bob Clampett

Productions. Jayanti Sen follows up with more information regarding the

current animation scene in India and we are treated to another lesson from

master artist Glenn Vilppu. Maureen Furniss returns from the holidays with

"Fresh From the Festivals" and Karl Cohen takes a closer look at those

Spike and Mike festivals. Plus, there's more!
