Animator Richard Williams, who won the Oscar for visual effects for his groundbreaking work on 1988's "Who Framed Roger Rabbit," as well as a Special Achievement Award from the academy for his animation direction on the film, is the subject of new exhibition at the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences' Grand Lobby Gallery in Beverly Hills. "Richard Williams: Master of Animation" is based on his book and DVD set, "The Animator's Survival Kit," and features about 80 original works of art. Divided into 12 zones, each section is accompanied by a matching chapter from his new iPad app. There are also clips from his films and video interviews with Williams.
