9780670882137: The Prince of Egypt: A New Vision in Animation

With remarkably realistic characterizations and unprecedented digital special effects, THE PRINCE OF EGYPT establishes anew standard in animated feature films. It is the first movie since The Ten Commandments (1956) to retell the story of Moses from the Book of Exodus, history's earliest narrative of deliverance from slavery that has been a source of faith and inspired dreams of freedom throughout the world. It represents a daring effort on the part of the founders of DreamWorks SKG - Steven Spielberg, Jeffrey Katzenberg, and david Geffen - to pioneer cinematic animation that is as versatile as live-action filmmaking.

The reader of this book will see how the fimmakers constructed the film scene by scene, shaping the narrative and deepening its dramatic impact and emotional resonance. They tell the stirring biblical story of Moses and the Pharaoh Rameses, who are driven by the circumstances of their birth to a momentous confrontation. The vast panorama of ancient Egypt, encompassing monumental architecture and majestic desire landscapes, offered unprecedented opportunities to artists. the pivotal role of God's miracles- the Burning Bush, the Ten Plagues, and the Parting of the Red Sea-called for the invention of digital special effects so awe inspiring that they would justify Mose's stirring declaration to the Hebrews, "Believe-for we will see God's wonders.

An internationally respected critic and historian of animation, Charles Solomon has written five books on the subject, including the acclaimed Enchanted Drawings: The History of Animation (1989).

Review:

Charles Solomon heeds the maxim that one picture is worth a thousand words in The Prince of Egypt: A New Vision in Animation. Dedicated to exploring the behind-the-scenes making of DreamWorks' first animated film, the book is a gorgeous compilation of artwork, from preliminary sketches to final product, that demonstrates the complicated process of bringing cartoon characters to life. What text there is is mostly tucked away in the form of captions, along with brief introductions to each chapter and a short section at the end containing information on such topics as the music, the layout, the story, and the animators. This lush, beautiful book will appeal both to fans of the movie and readers with a more general interest in animation. What's more, it'll look great on your coffee table.
