I have some very exciting news.

Today we’ve launched the first product on Bloop Animation – the Animation For Beginners ebook!

If you’re on our email list you probably already know a lot about the book. If not, you can read all about (and purchase) it here (there’s also a sample chapter you can download for free).

Animation For Beginners

What’s in the book?

I basically wrote the book I wish I had when I was starting up with animation. It has all the information a person needs to find their way towards starting a career in animation.

It covers all the different types of animation and basic animation principles. It comes with a complete hardware and software guide (for 2D, 3D and stop motion), must-have books as well as a detailed list of the best animation schools with all their information.

It also has plenty of practical guides such as creating an effective demo reel, building your own portfolio website, how to get a job in the animation industry and even a step by step guide to making an animated short.

Who is this book for?

This book is for everyone who ever wanted to get into the amazing world of animation.

You may be a high school student trying to decide if animation is for you, or a college student looking for new direction. You might be a working professional who always had a strong passion for filmmaking and animation and you’re looking for a change or a hobby for your spare time.

This book is for those who are curious about what’s it like being an animator.

In this book I will remove the curtain and tell you everything I know about becoming an animator. I’ll go over all the types of animation that you can experiment with, the necessary software and hardware for the task, recommended reading material, the best schools for learning animation in depth, some basics concepts of animation and even taking the first steps to making your first film.
