Description

Lavishly illustrated and encyclopedic in scope, "The World History of Animation" tells the genre's 100-year-old story around the globe, featuring key players in Europe, North America, and Asia. From its earliest days, animation has developed multiple iterations and created myriad dynamic styles, innovative techniques, iconic characters, and memorable stories. Stephen Cavalier's comprehensive account is organized chronologically and covers pioneers, feature films, television programs, digital films, games, independent films, and the web. An exhaustive time line of films and innovations acts as the narrative backbone, and must-see films are listed along with synopses and in-depth biographies of individuals and studios. The book explains the evolution of animation techniques, from rotoscoping to refinements of cel techniques, direct film, claymation, and more. A true global survey, "The World History of Animation" is an exciting and inspirational journey through the large and still-expanding animation universe - a place as limitless as the human imagination. This title is a comprehensive international history of animation, featuring all genres, styles, media, and techniques.
It features film, television, and web-based animation. It is illustrated in full color throughout. It includes comprehensive biographies of leading practitioners.
