Learn to create an animated flip book from start to finish! Flipping Out: The Art of Flip Book Animation guides readers through the entire flip book animation process, from brainstorming and storyboarding, to drawing, adding color, and more.

Aspiring animators will learn all of the skills to create flip books of their own, including keyframes, in-betweens, animating characters, and binding their animations into a book. Using the enclosed drawing pencil and step-by-step lessons as a guide, readers can then animate and personalize the two blank flip books included inside.
