I don't think they teach this stuff in art school."---Brown Johnson, president, Nickelodeon Animation. "Directing Animation is as much a book on management, leadership, and people skills as it is a book on animation. Any person leading a creative team in any field (or hoping to lead one someday) will be inspired and surprised by David Levy's keen analysis of the human side of the business of directing animation."---Linda Simensky, vice president, children's programming, PBS "The most comprehensive book on directing animation from one of the best writers in the business."---Bill Plympton, Oscar-nominated indie animation director "Q: How many books on directing animation does it take to screw in a lightbulb? A: One---David Levy's! And if you read this funny and informative book, you'll learn how to get other people to screw in the lightbulbs For you---and love doing it!"---Tom Warburton, TV animation director, creator, Cartoon Network's Codename: Kids Next Door "Once again, David Levy has written a book that is an absolutely vital read to anyone interested in starting, or already in the midst of, a career making animated films. Levy has compiled essential information from the industry's top talents, as well as the independent filmmaking community, telling it like it is and offering strong advice from decades of practical experience.

An animation director doesn't simply direct animation. He or she directs people who animate and must be equally able to relate to the crew, producers, writers, creators, and clients. In addition to over eighty photographs and illustrations, Directing Animation includes insider tips and firsthand experiences from animators, directors, and producers, revealing the best ways to manage the production process while creating a workplace that is both efficient and fun.

DIRECTING, DIALOGUE AND ACTING From Richard Williams' The Animator's Survival Kit comes key chapters in mini form. The Animator's Survival Kit is the essential tool for animators. However, sometimes you don't want to carry the hefty expanded edition around with you to your college or studio if you're working on just one aspect of it that day. The Animation Minis take some of the most essential chapters and make them available in smaller, lightweight, hand-bag/backpack size versions. Easy to carry. Easy to study. This Mini focuses on Directing, Dialogue and Acting. As a director, whatever your idea is, you want to put it over, so the main thing with directing is to be clear - very clear. The Director's job is to hold everything together so that the animator can give the performance. Richard Williams shows how that performance can be achieved with flexibility and contrast. With Acting and Dialogue, the temptation is to try to do everything at once - Williams' advice: do one thing at a time.

You need to create four walls around them, a landscape, the sun and moon - a whole life for them. You have to get inside that puppet and first make it live, then make it perform. Susannah Shaw provides the first truly practical introduction to the craft skills of model animation. This is a vital book in the development of model animation which, following the success of Aardman's first full-length film, Chicken Run, is now at the forefront of modern animation. Illustrated in full colour throughout you are shown step by step how to create successful model animation. Starting with some basic exercises, you will learn about developing a story, making models, creating set and props, the mechanics of movement, filming, postproduction and how to set about finding that elusive first job in a modern studio. Susannah Shaw is Programme Development Manager for the Animated Exeter festival. She was head of the Bristol Animation Course from 1996 to 2000 at the University of the West of England and former camera assistant at Aardman (working on 'A Close Shave' among other films).
