I can't think of a better guide to the vast history of computer animation than Tom Sito. He witnessed much of this story first-hand, then set about researching the rest with clear-eyed interest and unbridled curiosity. He has done a great service for anyone interested in this still-evolving medium -- and for posterity. -- Leonard Maltin film historian, author of Of Mice and Magic: A History of American Animated Cartoons Moving Innovation is the most complete, organized, and readable account of the formation of the CG industry I have seen. As an educator, I can easily see this text assigned as required reading for animation and film students. Tom Sito's writing is very conversational and straightforward, and this book will be of great interest to anyone in or studying the field of CG. -- Peter Weishar Dean of Entertainment Arts, Savannah College of Art and Design Moving Innovation helps us to discover the history of computer animation, from pioneers of experimental animation to inventors, artists, animators, engineers, and technicians who revolutionized the cinema.
