The Animator Letters Project is a book for aspiring animators that dream of working at a major studio but don’t know how to get there, it’s encouragement for those that feel lost and discouraged in their creative journey, and inspiration for those trying to make their big break into the animation industry. This is a book filled with nearly 100 handwritten letters by some of the most creative animators and directors in the animation industry- each telling their own unique story, along with words of wisdom for the next generation of animators. In an age of technology, where texts, tweets, blogs, chats and emails are the norm, this book’s handwritten element offers a personal connection to those in the industry. Get ready to be inspired by the likes of Pete Docter, Don Hahn, Byron Howard, Gary Trousdale, Roger Allers, Gary Goldman, Brenda Chapman, John Musker, Ron Clements, and Rob Minkoff, among many others. Their voices will awaken that creativity inside of you, if you are willing to listen.
100% of the proceeds from this book will be donated to The Animator Letters Project Scholarship at The California Institute of the Arts (CalArts) to benefit character animation students in financial need.
The book includes letters written by the following animation industry professionals:
