Summary In this book, the author "provides the underlying principles of animation that every animator - beginner to expert, classic animator to computer animation whiz - needs. Urging his readers to 'invent but be believable', he illustrates his points with hundreds of drawings, distilling the secrets of the masters into a working system in order to create a book that will become the standard work on all forms of animation for professionals, students, and fans." - back cover
