Mark the shark Posted: Jan 31st 2008

Cracking animation? The best book in the world!:O


Josephine Posted: Jan 31st 2008

Hi, jodyblue1 - good to have you back! Cracking Animation is a brilliant book about - well - animation! It's written by Peter Lord (one of the Aardman gods) and Brian Sibley (a genius/expert/guru when it comes to writing books about animation and C S Lewis).

It comes in a yellow cover (old) and a blue cover (updated).

The title is Cracking Animation.

Hope that helps you! ;)


purple and brown Posted: Feb 1st 2008

Modelmaker93 Posted: Feb 1st 2008

It is really good it tells you everything about what to do and how to do even how to create gromit properly.

I got mine from Amazon for £10.00


Mark the shark Posted: Feb 1st 2008

Hello everyone!;)

Josephine Posted: Feb 1st 2008

Purple and Brown - try Borders bookshop or support you local independent bookshop and I'm sure they'll order it for you!

The publishers are T&H (Thames & Hudson)
The ISBN reference number for the yellow version is:
ISBN 0-500-01881-2

Modelmaker93! Prof Chip! could you do us a favour (us, meaning the thread) and check the back of your blue book, look at the ISBN reference number above the bar code and quote it in your next message - this is to help anyone who would like the updated version so's they can order it from the bookshop.

A BIG THANK YOU IN ANTICIPATION!!! ;)

On behalf of fellow forum members who would love to order this book...

A BIG THANK YOU!
:-X


squigly Posted: Feb 10th 2008

Hey, guess what...I had ordered Creating 3-D Animation: The Aardman Book of Filmmaking back in January (17th, actually) and it just arrived yesterday February 8th. Little did I realize until I just did some Google searching that the book I got is the American version of Cracking Animation! It says it's the revised edition with an additional 32 new pages and has a blue cover. It think it's the same book -- just a different title.

The publisher is Harry N Abrams, Inc. and the ISBN number is 0-8109-4971-7 (hardcover).

I found a copy for US$12.25 plus $3.99 shipping on Amazon. It has a remainder mark, whatever that is. But the only odd thing I notice about it is a big black dot on the top edge near the binding. Hardly noticeable. Shipping stretched on to the max (over 3 weeks?) but I'm glad it's finally here!

Chuffed to mintballs, I am!


Modelmaker93 Posted: Feb 10th 2008

great i dont think that is the one i have but great for you. mine is produced by:

Peter Lord
Brian Sibley.

and on the front of the book it Sais Cracking animation In yellow writing and has a picture of Angry kid ready to fire at someone and has morph doing a kartwheel and a picture of wallace and gromit.

In you book does it tell you how to make a Sheep and Gromit?


Glad you got it though. Hope you like it

I enjoy mine.


squigly Posted: Feb 10th 2008

Hi Modelmaker!

I think it's the same book. For some reason they released it under a different title in the US. Here's a picture of the book jacket. It's almost the same as my book except on mine "Revised Edition" is in bigger yellow letters, and the writers names (Peter Lord and Brian Sibley) along with "Forward by Nick Park" appear just to the left of the Angry Kid.


Mark the shark Posted: Feb 10th 2008

Hmmm. That's strange.:O


squigly Posted: Feb 10th 2008

Yes, and I wonder why it's published by a different publisher in the US?


Mark the shark Posted: Feb 10th 2008

Oh heya, Squigly! Joined the water already!?:D
