Résumé de l'éditeur

From Pixar Animation Studios, the Academy Award®-winning studio that brought us such blockbusters as Toy Story, Monsters, Inc., and Finding Nemo, comes The Incredibles, a hilarious, action-packed story of a family of superheroes living an underground suburban existence.

The sleekly designed settings and characters were conceptualized and developed by writer/director Brad Bird and Pixar's creative team of artists, illustrators, and designers, resulting in a celluloid sensation rich with detail. The Art of The Incredibles celebrates their talent, featuring concept and character sketches, storyboards, and lighting studies, and invites readers into the elaborate creative process of animation through interviews with all the key players at Pixar.

With an 8-page gatefold and fabulous color art, this stunning book - the only movie tie-in book for adults - will delight film-goers, artists, and animation fans alike.

Mark Cotta Vaz is the author of 14 books on art and design topics, including The Art of Finding Nemo and The Invisible Art (0-8118-4515-X). He lives in the San Francisco Bay Area.

Brad Bird is the writer and director of The Incredibles. He most recently directed and wrote the screen story for the acclaimed 1999 animated feature, The Iron Giant. He has served as executive consultant to the hit animated television series King of the Hill and The Simpsons.

John Lasseter is Pixar Animation Studios's executive vice-president of creative and the director of Toy Story, A Bug's Life, and Toy Story 2. He most recently served as the executive producer of Monsters, Inc. and Finding Nemo, and is currently executive producer of The Incredibles.

This brilliantly illustrated book provides a unique look at the creative process of animation at its best. Inside are hundreds of pieces of concept art that Academy Award®-winning Pixar Animation Studios developed for the colorful characters and back-drops of The Incredibles - with behind-the-scenes insights from the director, artists, and designers of this groundbreaking film.
