More pictures at parkablogs This is sort of a behind the scenes book that looks at animation production inside the famous Aardman Studios, creators of successful Wallace and Gromit films, Chicken Run and others.The perspective is that of Aardman Studios so this book focuses on stop motion animation The 3 D in the title means the physical 3D, the actual construction of stuff, as compared to computer generated 3D only a small section is on that.The book starts with a long but interesting history o [...]
I tend not to like non fiction or reference books, always preferring novels but having recently completed an Honours degree in animation I was very interested in this book when I found it for a bargain price.I ve never been a massive fan of Aardman animations but in terms of claymation you don t get much better, therefore you would think an educational book from them would be a no brainer, sadly I didn t find this to be the case.The problem I usually have with books designed to educate on a part [...]
I debated much on my rating for this book but in the end this seemed appropriate for what I was able to gain from it.I got this book hoping to find some good step by step instruction into stop motion clay animation I ve long admired the films Aardman has released and with that I started to read Unfortunately nearly half the book was nothing than a fairly dry history of animation.It was beyond this point where I became interested again as they begin talking about equipment and techniques I reall [...]
I was hoping for straightforward information on creating 3d animation About 3 4 of this book is a history of animation in general and Aardman studios in particular It was an interesting book, and I did enjoy it, but it s far from a technical manual, even in the parts where it does get a little technical So, good for reading and looking at pictures not so good for reference.
My review from September 9, 2005
This is a fun book for fans of Wallace and Gromit and other claymation features.
Just the kind of lively, entertaining, insightful book about animation making you might expect from one of the finest teams of animators in the biz.
