Letter from Dreamworks Animation
“What I love most about animation is, it's a team sport, and everything we do is about pure imagination.”
This statement from Jeffrey Katzenberg, one of the founders of DreamWorks Animation, rings especially true in the creation of musical scores to accompany the beautiful images and stories of their feature films.
A DreamWorks Animation film is the result of an incredible collaboration that brings together unbelievably talented artists and storytellers as they transport audiences to new worlds. Filmmakers begin working with world-class composers early in the animation process, creating scores that set the tone of the films, fueling the story set in motion by the animators.
Transporting viewers of all ages to a world of Kung Fu masters, fairytale creatures with attitudes, young Vikings finding a way to fly, and animals exploring the “wild” happens as the team combines beautiful environments, characters, story and music. The scores amplify the emotional connection between the audience and the action on the screen. From the swell of the opening overture to the final crash of cymbals, a film score accompanies the journey, highlights the emotion, and can even bring audiences to their feet, cheering on the beloved DreamWorks Animation characters that have helped define the entertainment landscape for more than 20 years.
