Phil McKinney from HP interviews Jeffrey Katzenberg (CEO) and Ed Leonard (CTO) of DreamWorks Animation at the Computer History Museum. Katzenberg provides some tidbits on Little Mermaid, Beauty & the Beast, How to Train your Dragon, and others. Leonard provides some insight into the technology used to make their films. It take 5 years to produce an animation and more than 60 million render hours to produce (Puss in Boots). The render hours doubles every two years. Dreamworks uses clouds now to produce their films since computer use is peaky.
