A note from the author
Although my name (Michele Bousquet) is on the cover, Physics for Animators wouldn’t have been possible without the efforts of the amazing Alejandro Garcia. Alejandro, a physicist who also understands animation, is a frequent consultant at VFX studios such as Dreamworks. Along with teaching classes on Animation Physics at San Jose State University, Alejandro also has a website with free resources for animators who want to learn about physics to improve their work.
Alejandro and his classes are the focus of this great article by Science Nation, including a video about his efforts.
