Ed Hooks, Actor, Acting Trainer

Ed Hooks pioneered acting training for animators instead of stage actors.  His book "Acting for Animators" has recently been published by Routledge/UK in a revised third edition and is a required text at most schools proving animation training. He has taught his Acting for Animators masterclass for most major animation studios and game companies, and he has participated in FMX for the past sixteen years.

FMX is funded by the Ministry of Science, Research and the Arts and the Ministry of Economic Affairs, Labour and Housing of the State of Baden-Wuerttemberg, the City of Stuttgart and the MFG Film Funding, taking place in cooperation with VES Visual Effects Society, ACM SIGGRAPH and the World Building Institute, supported by Animation Media Cluster Region Stuttgart (AMCRS), AMD, AutodeskBackstage, Epic Games and Mackevision. FMX is an event by the Filmakademie Baden-Wuerttemberg, organized by the Animationsinstitut, hosting the Animation Production Day (APD), a joint venture with the Festival of Animated Film Stuttgart (ITFS).
