The Animator's Survival Kit: A Manual of Methods, Principles, and Formulas for Classical, Computer, Games, Stop Motion, and Internet Animators is a book by award-winning animator and director Richard Williams about various aspects of animation. The book includes techniques, advice, tips, tricks, and general information on the history of animation.
As the title implies, the book is helpful for several fields of animation, not just traditional animation. It has been praised by many as being one of the best books on animation available.
The Academy Award-winning artist draws on his master instruction classes to demonstrate essential techniques required of animators of any skill level or method, in an updated edition that provides expanded coverage of such topics as animal gaits and liveaction.
