Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"This book ably fills a void that faces ambitious would-be animators. They know there's a lot more to animation than lines on paper . . . but what? [Careers in Computer Graphics and Animation] details the broad scope of the complex animation process. Perplexed by the mass of names and jobs in the credits of the movies? This book sorts them out."  —Tom Franks, About.com
