The Art of Finding Dory : A Book Review / by Marc Hampson

The Art of Finding DoryThe Art of Finding Dory by Pixar Animation Studios
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I may be an easy target for these "Art of" Pixar film editions but any lifelong student looking to expand their craft and find inspiration from the minds and work of the masters would do themselves a favor to pick each and every one of these up.

I have been sorely disappointed that one of the most original studios of the last 20 years has decided to make such a heavy business of sequel development as of late but from a production development standpoint they have not let that keep them from doing what they do best in exploring and exploiting each and every physical and emotional story detail of what you see one the screen.

The Art of Dory is filled with Storyboard sequences both from the film and deleted scenes along with designs, color scripts and other "art of" standards but the stand out for me is the art and examples on use of is space and shape language to help define moments of the character's experiences.

Pretty good film. Great book.

Highly recommend.
