egbookcover.jpgCongratulations to Mario Aguilar of Brownsville, TX, who wins the copy of Character Animation Crash Course from our contest below!

Master Disney and Warner Bros. animator Eric Goldberg (currently a Supervising Animator on Disney’s anticipated The Princess And The Frog) certainly has accumulated a lot of cartooning knowledge in his 30-plus years in the business.

And now he’s set it all to paper, in Character Animation Crash Course, a book that’s been some two and a half decades in coming to the printed page!

The book even includes a CD of video content that highlights the techniques Eric describes, earning it the distinction of being the first animator’s guide to feature actual animation for examination in real time or on a frame-by-frame basis.

And guess what? We have a copy of Character Animation Crash Course to give away to one lucky reader!

Simply draw your details into the form below, hit submit and watch as your entry zooms its way to the Animated News & Views mailbox!

The Character Animation Crash Course contest will close on Sunday September 7 2008 at 11:59pm ET. Good luck!
