Beginner's Guide to Animation: Everything You Need to Know to Get Started

Beginner's Guide to Animation

To beginners, making an animated movie can seem like voodoo magic. And in fact, until recently, animation was expensive and time-consuming. But now with the help of Beginner’s Guide to Animation, anyone can make animated movies, using a digital camera, basic software, and a computer. The book begins with an illustrated guide to setting up a simple animation studio at home, including a list of essential items.

Then, new animators hit the ground running with six innovative, instructive projects designed to develop technical skills and explore the potential of animation. A full collection of scannable templates makes it even easier to get started and to finish up. Tips, tricks, and clear instructions on editing, scoring, even making your own show reels and shorts make this the complete one-volume guide to amazing friends and family—and everyone on YouTube!—with great I-made-it-myself animation.

Reader L. Knomad says, "I bought this book for my 11 year old son who has been interested in Stop Motion Animation for quite some time. It was a good choice. This book answered his questions about software and cameras. It has very good advice for setting up a small animation studio (which we will be doing next week). It has chapters on a variety of animation techniques from traditional clay animation, to puppets, to sand. It gave him some ideas he wouldn't have thought up on his own.

What this book covers:

Sand animation
Claymation
Cut-out animation
Pixilation
3D animation
Stop-motion animation
Puppet animation
Making props and sets
Developing a storyboard
Making a film
Free stuff
Resoures
Plus much more ...

Beginner's Guide to Animation

Manuel C. Hernandez of Deer River, MN says, "Mary Murphy put together an absolutely wonderful book. It is not only a great book for instruction (for self or group), but an absolute joy to read. I highly recommend this book for anyone who wants to start animation or claymation. I find it fundamental to instructing young teens as well as younger children. I was stunned at the price!
