Created by ACMI in partnership with DreamWorks Animation, this exhibition celebrates over 20 years of DreamWorks Animation’s much-loved feature films, and the talented artists who created them.
Providing a rare glimpse into the studio’s collaborative and visionary approach to animation and offering an insightful look into the processes behind the on-screen magic, this exhibition charts the studio’s creative journey and explores its unique twist on the art of animation, including film collaborations with Aardman Animations.
Showcasing the studio’s creative legacy from its first feature film Antz (1998) through to Kung Fu Panda 3 (2016), Trolls (2016) and How to Train Your Dragon: The Hidden World (2019), this exhibition features over 400 unique objects. Drawing on the studio’s archive of rare and never-seen-before material, the exhibition includes concept drawings, storyboards, models, masks, maps, photographs, posters, paintings, and other original artworks.
These artworks sit alongside amazing immersive and interactive digital experiences, and a wealth of additional digital content, including many specially recorded interviews with DreamWorks Animation artists that explore the creative processes of this unique animation studio.
DreamWorks Animation is perfect for families and fans, students, art lovers and creatives alike, lending itself to dynamic supporting education programs, talks and activities, film programs and related events.
