Acting for Animators

Acting for Animators by Ed Hooks is a great book for any animator, really. This guy is an acting teacher and has lots of experience doing acting for animation purposes.

Stage acting is basically different from character animation. There are some many little tips that Ed will share, though not hard and fast rules, but will make the process of animating a character in 2d or 3d so much more natural. There is no “chart of actions” because a smile can be extremely different in different context. Feel the motivation for a character to act that way, that is what you need to know.

Happy animating!
