The Animator's Survival Kit

05/03/13  |  Posted by Reid Jacobs  |  Posted in Digital Canvas - Apps & Accessories

The Animator’s Survival Kit, by Richard Williams and developed by Faber and Faber, is all about how animation works! Williams studied animation his entire life and decided to write a book on DIY animation. He gathered all of the old school animators that he could, and before the end of their lives, he asked them about all of their tips and tricks. He re-learned the art of animation through his forties, fifties, and part of his sixties in order to get information for his book. Follow Williams through over forty years of animation experience and enjoy 17 chapters covering everything from timing to directing. Trying to animate a person to walking is a pretty involved process, there are a lot of aspects to consider like timing of steps and the way the head and hair bounces. I took advantage of the sample version of The Animator’s Survival Kit that Williams provides for his customers. In the sample version there are free chapters with fun little drawings that illustrate the text instructions very well. Interspersed within the chapters are short animations that pertain to what you just read. He presents a rule, explains it, demonstrates it, and moves on. Richard William’s Animator’s Survival Kit is $34.99 in the iTunes store or you can buy the original book for $23.99. He also sells a 16 disk DVD collection for $956.00 if you would rather listen to his instruction.
