Traveljunkieindonesia.com – Woohoo… I was kidnapped by Tourism Victoria and Tourism Australia to DreamWorks Animation Exhibition: a journey from sketch to screen at Australian Centre for the Moving Image (ACMI), Federation Square – Melbourne.
ACMI is Australia’s first centre dedicated solely to the most popular visual form, the moving image.
The centre exists to encourage and assist the development, production, exhibition and knowledge of film, television and new media in Victoria.
ACMI houses facilities for the exhibition of film, television and digital media in an interactive environment of 10,000 square metres of floor area over five levels.
“Whether it’s a curmudgeonly ogre who finally finds love in a world of fractured fairy tales, a wild stallion travelling across the frontiers of the Old West, or a dumpling-loving panda who masters the art of kung fu in ancient China, it is only through the collective work of all the artists that the final experience becomes complete.” – Bill Damaschke, Chief Creative Officer for DreamWorks Animation.
The Exhibition took me into the extraordinary world of the artists and filmmakers who have produced some of the most beloved and iconic animated films of the last twenty years.
Providing a rare glimpse into the studio’s collaborative and visionary approach to animation, and offering exclusive insights into the processes behind the on-screen magic, DreamWorks Animation: The Exhibition charts the studio’s creative journey and explores its unique twist on the art of animation.
Each film is characterised by a distinctive aesthetic sensibility that consistently challenges the creative and technical boundaries of contemporary filmmaking.
The exhibition explores the three mainstays of animated film: Character, Story and World. Each section follows the creative journey from the original idea through to a fully realised animated feature.
And, here’s what I saw and learned:
I really enjoyed being in the journey. I got a very excited!
The exhibition runs daily from 10 April – 5 October 3014.
