    This man literally wrote the book on animation. Great loss.

    His writing "The Animator's Survival Kit" and his recordings of the workshop sessions preserved all hard-won traditional 2d animation knowledge from the golden age of animation (Nine Old Men) and beyond (which includes Williams' own original insights).

    For that effort alone he deserves our deepest respect.

    I literally teared up yesterday watching some of his work, and I still do while writing this. I never knew the man personally, but his insights and teaching had and have a profound influence on my own work.

    British animation studio Aardman Animations has given a very touching tribute to Richard Williams who was based there until he passed.
