Extensive color-illustrated history of the studio and its productions. Fine copy in decorative printed boards without dust jacket, as issued. The story of DreamWorks Animation, the film studio which released such classic and celebrated animated feature films as Antz (their first release, 1998), Shrek (2001), Madagascar (2005), How to Train Your Dragon (2010), Rise of the Guardians (2012), and Home (2015). With a 5 page section on Awards and Nominations. DreamWorks Animation SKG was founded in 2004 by Steven Spielberg, Jeffrey Katzenberg, and David Geffen, the trio who created DreamWorks SKG in 1994, the phenomenally successful studio which produced the Oscar-winning films American Beauty, Gladiator, and A Beautiful Mind. From Katzenberg’s foreword: “For me - a guy who started in live-action film production - I discovered my love for animation in an unusual way. Back in 1984, I was named chairman of The Walt Disney Studios. On my first day on the job, Disney’s CEO, Michael Eisner, called me into his office and pointed out the window to a building across the lot. He asked, ‘Do you know what they do over there?’ I answered, ‘I’ve no idea.’ He said, ‘That’s where they make the animated movies...and you’re now in charge.” With fitting serendipity, thus began Jeffrey Katzenberg’s stewardship of animated films. And aren’t we all such fortunate recipients for what followed. (Inventory #: 20844E)
