Publisher's description: From the creators of the wildly successful Wallace and Gromit films and Chicken Run, here is a practical guide to making your own 3-D (or stop-action) animation, a practice whose robust presence in contemporary filmmaking continues strong. At the heart of the book is a guide to the process of 3-D animation today: a practical, fully illustrated, step-by-step description of how to create effective characters, a storyboard and sets, and then an entire film. This new edition includes a brand new chapter offering exclusive interviews with the producer and director of Aardman's latest blockbuster, Shaun the Sheep: The Movie, a special segment giving you unprecedented behind-the-scenes insight into the making of The Pirates! In an Adventure with Scientists, and a revised chapter on CGI technology that explores and celebrates the very latest, up-to-the-minute developments in the field.
