Must have for any character animator! Feb. 12 2012
By Hadleym - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Extremely helpful and easy to read, this is a must have for anyone interested in/or in the field of character animation. Be it for entertainment/film, gaming or advertising, this book is helpful for all. It includes scene by scene breakdowns of some great animated films and tells you what you should aim for, what works. It is a great product and I guarantee you'll love it.
I believe this is is the finest book written on acting for animators available. July 11 2015

It has straightforward examples, a well thought out structure that is both thoughtful and practical, and it obviously comes from an author who has a great deal of insight and experience with his subject. This is not one of those books written by an academic who has limited hands-on experience in his field. It's short, simple to understand, and gets right to the heart of the matter. It is about digging deep into what makes characters come alive as opposed to moving in entertaining ways on the screen. Any animator who is interested in getting behind the characters that they work so hard to create should read and re-read this book. It will make you a better storyteller and help you understand what motivates meaning as well as motion.

This book is very important for who is just starting or for who is already in business for awhile.
Sometimes we're worried too much with body mechanics, arcs, timing, etc.. and we forget about the most important, THE CHARACTER! The character and telling the story are the reason of animating after all, your animation must work accordingly. The books helped me a lot with mindset to approach it wisely.

Great read, and opens up a lot to think about in regards to acting in animation. The writing is easy to follow, and Ed Hooks inserts a lot of his personality and humor into the reading which helps the reader feel involved making this book more of a class rather than simply another book.
biased review since I attended the author's lecture on the subject Dec 28 2013

Ed Hooks is a wonderful guy that really knows his stuff when it comes to this particular field of study. His lecture basically covers his book but is worth hearing him tell stories about the studios he's visited and the people he meets. For a deep dive, I recommend students to follow up his book with a book on body language that law enforcement use. I forget the name but it's here on Amazon as well.
