This remarkable book charts the making of the first ever computer animated full-length motion
picture. A collaboration between the Walt Disney Company and Pixar, Toy Story was not only
a hit at the box office but also marked the beginning of a new era in animation film production.
The authors explain and illuminate how this pioneering film was produced, taking elements of
animation entertainment (humor, heart and the creation of a world both real and fantastic) to new
Richly illustrated with concept and storyboard art as well as images from the actual film, the
book offers an in-depth review of the technology, creativity and artistry that went into the making
of this popular motion picture.
Although it is a bit pricey, a coffee table sized gift book like this is one that film buffs and
those interested in film animation will find fascinating. This is definitely a "collector's edition"
that will probably only go through one printing, so once it sells out, that's it!
