Thinking Animation is a one-of-a-kind book that emphasizes how artists can use traditional animation techniques and principles with today’s computer generated animation technology. This full-color book includes numerous interviews with experienced contributing authors from a wide range of backgrounds, including stop-motion, visual effects, traditional animation, and CG.

Thinking Animation includes forewords written by traditional animator Floyd Norman and animation designer Richard Taylor – and interviews with Eric Goldberg, Ed Hooks, Conrad Vernon, Tom Sito, Bert Klein, Dave Brewster and many more.Check out the book’s website for more information.
