I have been meaning to write about this book for a while now, but I’m short on time these days so I’ll keep this brief. Buy this book! It’s an incredible tome of animation knowledge and history. It’s everything that inspired me to start learning about animation: the passion for the craft, the sense of discovery and learning, the drive to push your work further, and so much more. Before Ever After puts you there, in the room, with the artists that shaped this medium into what it is today as they learned from top talent both inside and outside the studio. Once I started reading it, I couldn’t put it down. I just hope Don Hahn can release further volumes for us to consume. Check out the official website for the full synopsis.
