Database for Animation Studies

10 References for Understanding Animation Production

Igarashi, Naomi

I have tried to select books that primarily allow the reader to acquire the broad range of skills necessary for learning how to produce animation, either in an animation studio or in an educational facility, such as a university or technical school. Note: Mr. Igarashi is a member of the 2018 Research and Education Committee; however, we asked her to make a selection of references in addition to the committee’s list, because the current database does not include many references about the practice of creation.
