    • There is an activity that lists Darcy Prendergast on page 195 from a list of other animators that the students can choose from to look at their work. Due to unforeseen circumstances we recommend that Darcy Prendergast be removed from that list.

    • On page 211 there is a line under the heading But wait, there's more...You can learn more about Darcy Prendergast at his website, DeePee Studios. The website URL is no longer applicable so please go to which features a collection of current clips and work.
