Books about animated movies are rarely artistically accomplished enough to astound. Not so Mark Cotta Vaz's coffee-table book THE ART OF FINDING NEMO which happily isn't a by-the-numbers look at how the hit film was made. Instead Vaz focuses on the illuminating concept art that inspired the digital artists at Pixar. And the result is magical. The artists were able to use a draft of the script as their blueprint (rare in animated films), and it paid huge dividends. In many ways the concept art surpasses the digital art of the movie itself. There's an emotional (not sentimental), articulated depth to the work, particularly in the pastels and the charcoal renderings (by production designer Ralph Eggleston and Simon Varela, respectively) that digital art - for all the technology involved - simply cannot match. So cheer the movie's accomplishments and heart, but let the astonishing art included here flood your mind. - Premiere
Next summer, the creators of Monsters, Inc. and Toy Story bring us a new cinematic adventure set in the vibrant world of the Great Barrier Reef. The film stars a clown fish who sets on an epic journey to rescue his son who is unexpectedly taken far from home. Albert Brooks provides the voice of Nemo's fretful father who risks life and fin to find his son. Newcomer Alexander Gould is heard as the adventurous young Nemo. Ellen DeGeneres voices Dory, a forgetful but relentlessly optimistic companion that the father meets during his travels. The Art of Finding Nemo captures the creation of this film with vividly reproduced concept art and insightful interviews with the Pixar Studios team. The only Nemo book published for adults, The Art of Finding Nemo celebrates the wizardry of Pixar animation.Alle Produktbeschreibungen

When Andrew Stanton first pitched Finding Nemo, John Lasseter, a longtime scuba diver, had one bit of advice: get certified for scuba diving and discover for yourself the mysteries of the deep. Lesen Sie die erste Seite

fertigen Figuren und Handlungsorten gibt es keine einzige Abbildung, es werden fast ausschließlich nur grobe Skizzen gezeigt, wobei selbst
bei diesen zu erkennen ist, dass es nicht die Endfassung darstellt. Das Können der Truppe um John Lasseter muss nicht extra erwähnt werden, es wäre aber schön gewesen, wenn in diesem Buch etwas mehr davon gezeigt worden wäre.

This book will only enhance that feel-good feeling after watching the movie, probably several times if you have kids.
The book is filled with character studies, set designs and lighting studies. Most of the panels were captioned to explain the art direction behind. You'll feel as if you're going on a tour at the Pixar studio, looking at art with artists talking to you. There are a lot of pastel storyboards drawn for lighting studies. They are gorgeous with with nice textural feel to them. The colour theory used for the movie is explained by Ralph Eggleston.
This is for fans of Finding Nemo, Pixar and great art.
(More pictures are available on my blog. Just visit my Amazon profile for the link.)
The pictures are beautiful and make you realize things you don't think about while watching the movie. You don't realize that the story wasn't always going to play out the same way. You don't realize that the characters may have looked different had the animators chosen to go in another direction. Looking at these early sketches, step by step pastel drawings, and much more, you see what it's really like to make one of these fantastic films.
The quotes throughout are humorous and enlightening. (I particularly like the descriptions of the sharks and the fishtank.) They even reveal a secret I didn't catch after seeing the movie twice; the man in the dentist's office with the skull on his shirt is supposed to be a grown-up Sid from "Toy Story!" That kid needed a trip to the dentist! Overall, "The Art of Finding Nemo" is an unbeatable coffee table book.
This book is a perfect inspiration for any animator or film/animation student.
There's not a lot I can say to convince you to buy the book, aside from stressing how beautiful it is. So hopefully the video portion helps. This book is very much worth tracking down, and while I'd suggest waiting until the blu-ray release of Finding Nemo to see if it gets a reprint, if you end up paying the original retail price, you won't feel ripped off. Everything in the movie is covered here in-depth. The dentist's office, the aquarium, the submarine surrounded by active mines, the wall of jellyfish...if you saw it in the movie, it's included here. All of the characters are featured as well, and it was interesting to find out that one of the fish in the aquarium, who has just a few lines of dialogue, was the hardest character to design. There are some nice jokes too, like in a collection of drawings of the angler fish, it shows him looking menacing, but then another sketch shows his light burn out, he changes it, then goes back to being menacing.
I can't say anything bad about this book at all. The presentation is perfect, pictures are just the right size and never pixelated, and the short stories from the crew were all interesting to read. What really won me over, though, were the breathtaking charcoal pictures by Simon Varela. You can tell which ones they are in my video, since I spend a little extra time on them, but my god are they a sight to behold. This guy needs to get signed on for more movies so we can get more work like this in other art books. I can't recommend spending a ton of money on this book, since prices are stupidly high at the moment, but it's such a fantastic art book that it should be in everyone's collection. If you needed a little nudge, I'd consider this one of the top 5 animated art books, joining the likes of The Art of Kung Fu Panda. Yeah, that's right.
