Audible Editor Reviews

In this audiobook, David B. Levy covers everything that aspiring animators need to know, from the value of going to school to study animation to the importance of networking. Award-winning narrator Richard Allen employs a chummy tone, narrating anecdotes from top animation professionals with verve and underscoring the general, positive attitude of the audiobook. Although Levy wants beginners to understand the challenges inherent in animation, he genuinely wants them to succeed as well.

After finishing this audiobook, listeners will understand why John Hays declares "If you feel that the true joy of artistic creation can only be fully experienced when everything you have is at risk…then starting an animation business is the way to go."
