The work of the editors and chapter authors provides a valuable collection of information, philosophical thought and production considerations that every animation teacher, researcher and practitioner need to read and have handy. It will serve as a reference and provide guidance for their own
investigation as well as for that of their students. -- Robert Musburger, Animationstudies 2.0
