Whether you want to break into the animation industry or “toon up” to a better career, this comprehensive guide will show you how. A filmmaker and animation artist surveys the field and shares the advice of more than one hundred professionals in the business of making toons – including Teddy Newton, character designer for The Incredibles; Steven Hillenburg, creator of SpongeBob SquarePants; John R. Dilworth, creator of Courage, the Cowardly Dog; executives from PBS Kids, Nickelodeon, Disney Channel, Comedy Central, the Cartoon Network, and many others. Learn how to: get the most out of school; build a portfolio that will get you work; cope with unemployment; keep your skills marketable for years to come; network effectively; learn from on-the-job criticism; and pitch and sell a show of your own. Also included are invaluable resources such as animation schools, societies, film festivals, studios, Web sites, and publications. (, from the publisher)
