if I had a thousand dollars: Animator's Survival

"The Animator's Survival Kit Animated" is an animation "master class" DVD set based on the very good book "The Animator's Survival Kit" by Richard Williams. It was created at the Blue Sky Studios (Ice Age (2002), Robots (2005), and Dr. Seuss's Horton Hears a Who! (2008) were made there). Richard Williams seems to have dedicated his life to being the best animation instructor in the world and seems to have succeeded at that. Richard Williams is also known as the animation director of "Who Framed Roger Rabbit". For Canadians and Americans, the cost is just short of $1000 for the kit but I think it would be worth it based on how well done the book is.
