Great Artbook Aug 28, 2008
This book is really a gold mine for those who look for concept art, drawings, sketches, paintings about the movie. You will find some beautiful artworks from Eyvind Earle, the guys behind every tree of the movie. Dense, full of great artworks, great book !
Scrapbook styled artbook Jul 10, 2007
I bought this book prior to watching the movie. It's slightly better than all of my Pixar artbooks. Mine was bought off this site.com.
The hardcover book was housed in a protective cardboard cover box with two holes cut into it. Boog and Elliot peeked out the holes.
When you pull the book out of it's cover box, you'll notice that there's something different about this book from other artbooks. Goodies were packed everywhere in the book. They were post cards, posters, mini booklets and even stickers!
Tons of original sketches, movie stills and story boards filled the pages. The content was so vibrant and full of life. Captions and write up were short and nice to read. A scrapbook, of top notch quality, is perhaps a better description.
There are some pictures of the book on my blog. Just do an Internet search on "parka blogs open season"
Better 'Art of' book than Pixar's! May 26, 2007
Pixar may want to review their delivery of any future art books now that Sony is delivering books like Open Season, chocked with goodies. This book is so packed full of art you would think the film was traditional. I enjoyed Open Season and wondered why since I cant stand most CG films except for Pixar's (excluding Cars). I know why now I see all the pre-production that went into it...for me Im a colour and environment lover and I was so happy to see Sony included colour scripts and beat boards! I really think this one is a great investment! The presentation is a real treat, I am looking forward to the Aardman art of books now that they are partners with Sony...keep it up.
Open Season May 12, 2007
I have seen the movie and wanted to walk out on it within the fist five minutes. NOT because the animation was bad, or the art direction awful, simply because the pacing and the main character's voices were just getting in the way of the experience I look for in a movie, any movie : The escape.
When I picked up the book, I was almost shocked to see that the exact oposite was happening. I found myself flipping through the pages, being brought in to this magnificent world inspired by the older Disney designers, and really enjoyed the book. I would recommend it as a standalone Art Book, rather than a complement to the movie. In fact, you might like the movie better if you just go through the book.
