Ed Hooks' indispensable acting guidebook for animators has been fully updated and improved!

Hooks uses basic acting theory to explain everything from character movement and facial expressions to interaction and scene construction. Just as acting on film and on stage are very different disciplines, so is the use of acting theory in creating an animated character, scene or story. Acting for Animators is full of essential craft tips from an acting master.

New to this Routledge edition:

- scene-by-scene analyses of six films, including Up, Coraline and Kung Fu Panda

- an expanded chapter on video game animation

- all-new illustrations

- a 500 word history of acting

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.
5.0 out of 5 stars Thanks Ed Hooks March 24 2014

Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
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.
5.0 out of 5 stars biased review since I attended the author's lecture on the subject Dec 28 2013
By Michael A Cuevas - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
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.
