Founded in 1994 by Steven Spielberg, Jeffrey Katzenberg, and David Geffen, DreamWorks Animation instantly became a world-renowned animation studio with blockbuster franchises including "Shrek," "Madagascar," and "Kung Fu Panda." Though its earliest films, such as "The Prince of Egypt," feature traditional hand-drawn cel animation, DreamWorks soon forayed into claymation with "Chicken Run" and "Wallace & Gromit," and pioneered advanced computer animation with films such as "Antz," "Shark Tale," and "How to Train Your Dragon."
Brimming with concept art, preproduction designs, and char-acter sketches, DreamWorks Animation marks the studio's 20th anniversary and offers unprecedented behind-the-scenes access into its archives. An introduction by DreamWorks cofounder Katzenberg provides insider perspective on the studio's most popular films, as does running commentary from artists and direc-tors on all of DreamWorks' 30 films to date.

Over the last two decades, Dreamworks Animation Studios has produced 30 films. In honor of the studios’ 20th Anniversary, they released The Art of Dreamworks Animation, which features over 300 pages of great artwork. By aggregating artwork from each of the Dreamworks Animation movies, this book serves as a nice collection of the Studio’s history. For me, the single most striking aspect of Dreamworks animated films are their colors. When you think of the King Fu Panda or Madagascar films, your mind automatically thinks of the appealing color palettes of these movies. This makes for a wonder art book, and fortunately the colors within the book are every bit as bold and vibrant as they are on screen. One of the virtues of the book is that the artwork is so diverse – there’s everything from early drawings and pencil sketches to polished character pieces. You really get a sense for how the design process progresses on films like these. Keep in mind that with animation, absolutely everything is created out of nothing. Even the simplest things that are taken for granted in live-action films have to be methodically designed in animation. Each of the films gets about a dozen or so pages. It’s worth noting that many of these films also have their own individual full-size art and making-of books, so if you’re interested in exploring a particular film then you might consider also picking up it’s separate companion book, which will include much more art and go more in-depth about the production. My personal favorites from an artwork perspective are Kung Fu Panda, Shrek and How to Train Your Dragon. In closing, I highly recommend The Art of Dreamworks Animation. The book is a really great value and would make an excellent gift for fans of movies, animation, or art in general. Twitter @movieartbook
