About The Alchemy of Animation

The swift stroke of a pencil, the delicate positioning of a puppet, and the intricate process of building a 3D-render: these are but a few of the magical elements presented by Academy Award nominated producer Don Hahn in his book The Alchemy of Animation. This overview of the animation process across three mediums- hand-drawn, stop-motion and computer-generated- provides an entertaining and informed look at the sorcery behind the creation of such diverse Disney classics as Dumbo, The Nightmare Before Christmas and Toy Story, among others. Fans will appreciate the rarely seen artwork ranging from Snow White to the upcoming Bolt, and students of animation will relish the insider's look at the many steps involved in making such masterpieces.
