Patrick Beaulieu, Animation Artistic Director at Ubisoft Quebec City, launches his first 3D animation collection book Animation Insiders. A rich and complete work of knowledge sharing, this collection of testimonials gives a lot of tricks and hints as well as anecdotes from renowned animators at  Dreamworks, Blue Sky and  Pixar, to name a few.

“Gathering all these people from all over the world and putting together all of these testimonials was a lot of work, says Patrick Beaulieu, but the result gives us a privileged vision on what is going on back stage in animation.
