Acknowledgments

I would like to thank all my students for inspiring and helping me to write this book. In particular I am very grateful to Michael Melo for donating his Henry character to the book, modeling the targets for the facial expressions, and checking the accuracy of many of the tutorials. Aharon Charnov wrote the Simple Guy tutorial. Meng-Yang Lu rigged Henry and created the Happy and Sad animations. Jason Friedman, Steve Gagne, and Ezra Schwepker reviewed portions of the manuscript for clarity and technical accuracy.

Several students allowed me to use their class assignments as examples: Aaron Walsman donated his Jump animation; David Suroviec his Weight animation, and Marcos Romero his Push animation. William Robinson provided a sample of his Astrobucks animation storyboard. Brittany Lee created the storyboard for the sack jump scene. Jiunnfu Su provided his graceful Koi animation.

Thank you all for your contributions to this book.
