Leviathan Animatic

October 9, 2009

Scott Westerfeld’s children’s book Leviathan was released this week.  The book is another addition to the strange literary fare that seems to sell well to children these days, though I haven’t read it, and have no plans to.

What interests me more is the book “animatic” — the motion graphic trailer, made up of moving images from the book.  This approach to promoting books is becoming more commonplace, and, anyone who has worked on animatics in After Effects or Combustion will know that, these things are an art form in-and-of-themselves.
