From Hollywood blockbuster to striving independent filmmaker, from mobile phone games to characters advertising products on television, from pseudo live action through to virtual environments, animation is able to transcend boundaries to reach new audiences.
New book ANIMATION IN PROCESS shows how artists, designers, filmmakers, programmers, directors, writers, and producers have seized the chance to entertain using a versatile and compelling medium.
ANIMATION IN PROCESS is not only a creative showcase exposing the best talent in the field today, but an in-depth exploration of working methods and processes that go behind the highly-polished features enjoyed today, with previously unseen material such as sketches, working drawings, storyboards, and other work in progress that documents the animators' craft.
Author Andrew Selby is an award-winning illustrator and Programme Leader for the Visual Communication disciplines at Loughborough University, covering the areas of illustration, graphic communication and animation. He is also an active member of the LUSAD Animation Academy. He writes regularly for the design press.
ANIMTION IN PROCESS will be published by U.K. publisher Laurence King in September. http://www.laurenceking.com/product/Animation+in+Process.htm.
The book is coming to the U.S. earlier, at the end of August.
