Here is a great panel that just happened at Comic-Con about filmmaking at DreamWorks Animation; featuring a group of very important and very talented people:
Bill Damaschke – Chief Creative Officer at DreamWorks Animation
James Baxter – Head of Character Animation on Croods… (but he’s kind of a big deal)
Tom McGrath – Director of Megamind and the Madagascar films
Patrick Hanenberger – Production Designer for Rise of the Guardians
(unfortunately it’s a bit hard to hear though)
