At the recent CTN Expo in Burbank (great event , by the way) I was pleased to finally meet animator/author/teacher Tony White face to face.
Among other interesting projects that Tony has in the works he has recently completed and released yet another book titled "Jumping Through Hoops: The Animation Job Coach".
The book is a much needed guide for all those who want to get a first job in the animation industry. It is also a valuable asset for all those who want to stay there once they have that all-important first job. I read it cover-to- cover on my return flight home , and I highly recommend it to all students. This is a very practical guide to preparing yourself for the modern animation industry and seeking a job once your animation training is completed.
(*Note: I will say that if I had a small quibble with the book it is to point out that the book needed more careful proofreading before publishing as there are a number of typographical errors, but these in no way detract from the overall value of the wisdom contained in the covers of this book . Just something that should be fixed in the second printing of the book. Get the book. )
