Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Bluth is a master animator, artist, and director in traditional, pre-3D animation styles. His cartoon classics include The Secret of N.I.M.H., An American Tail, The Land Before Time, and Anastasia. This book is a companion to his The Art of Storyboard (DH Pr., 2004), which described the technical and creative processes involved in crafting the visual blueprints for animated films. It focuses on the process of designing characters; adapting those characters to script, voice talent, and music; directing their performances; and determining the timing and rhythm of their movements. Packed with lively commentary and vivid illustrations, the book is recommended for public libraries. Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
