Cracking animation? The best book in the world!
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!
were can you get one?!
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

On behalf of fellow forum members who would love to order this book...
A BIG THANK YOU!
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!
great i dont think that is the one i have but great for you. mine is produced by:
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.
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.
Hmmm. That's strange.
Yes, and I wonder why it's published by a different publisher in the US?
Oh heya, Squigly! Joined the water already!?
Ready for a CCCCAAAAANNNNNNNNONNNNNBBBBBAAALLLLLSSSPPPLLAAASSSHHHH!!!!
Sorry, that was kinda long that it went off the page!!!
quite all right. I enjoyed the splash!
Me too! Body surfing!
#Get on top! Get on top!#!!! WAHOOO!!!!
is the blue and yellow the same????
No. Blue is updated and has CGI info where as the yellow doesn't.
thanks, i'm going to buy it now!!1
Good luck! It's cracking!
yep i've bought it with a few piano books of amazon
yep i've been playing since i was little, it's great
I play guitar, modelmaker. It rocks, doesn't it! Hey, have you and your band composed any songs? Maybe you could put a music video here? Wahoo!!!
