"As a member of the animation community I have read a lot of books, and own Clay Animation: Secrets Revealed 2. Secrets Revealed: 3 is a major update to how clay animation and stop motion is done now, with the digital equipment that is current and up to date. It is an excellent insight into the process of creating a film today.

The best part of the book is the interviews from stop motion luminaries such as Anthony Scott, Brad Schiff, and Justin Rasch.

After reading this text, you will have an appreciation for the amount of time it takes to make a short film, knowledge of the tools and materials involved, and the skillsets to do it.

Clay Animation: Secrets Revealed 3 is a buried treasure chest of exactly as the name implies: secrets in clay animation. Without Marc Spess and Animateclay, many of these tips and tricks might be lost forever." ~ Don Carlson

"Secrets Revealed' works like a charm! I must say that the book is excellent, and I am finding it to be better than 'Creating 3D Animation' by Brian Sibley and Peter Lord. Where as 'Creating 3D' mostly contains information that can really only be applied to those with a large budget, your book has loads information that will help both novices and professionals." ~
